The eCharge4Drivers EV charging solutions and services were showcased at the ITS World Congress 2023 which took place in Suzhou, China, from 16 to 20 October. As an important gathering for the international ITS community, the event brought together industry leaders to exchange on the latest technological developments in the mobility sector.
eCharge4Drivers was represented in two Special Interest Sessions (SIS), which highlighted the key role of electromobility in greening transport. In SIS01 on ‘Navigating the Future: The Role of Electromobility and EV Charging Infrastructure’, John Paddington (ERTICO) provided an overview of the various solutions developed by eCharge4Drivers to make charging an electric vehicle easier and more convenient for the users, helping public acceptance and the adoption of electromobility in Europe to address the growing issue of climate change.
During SIS13 on ‘Novel Electric Micromobility and Mobility as a Service’, special attention was given to the eCharge4Drivers user-friendly battery swapping services for light electric vehicles, which are demonstrated in the project demo sites in Berlin and Barcelona. Geli Latsa (ICCS) shared insights into the specificities of these solutions, which are a crucial addition to the broader discussion on electric vehicle charging as they address the unique requirements for smaller electric vehicles. The project presentation contributed to the conversation on the positive impact of micromobility solutions to support the transition to more sustainable and user-centric mobility options.
