Today’s transport and energy challenges require a holistic approach. Growing demand for electric vehicles (EVs) present opportunities and challenges for Europe’s electricity network. Therefore, cross-industry collaboration and public-private partnerships to explore this ecosystem are critical.
IMET and focuses on those solutions enabling the integration of EVs into the grid, such as V2G, second life batteries used for stationary energy storage, smart charging or smart energy management systems.
Since its launch by Nissan Europe in 2017, the initiative has represented a cross-industry voice to foster the deployment of those mobility solutions critical to energy transition. IMET has developed a large EU wide network, their members implemented a variety of pilot projects and issued a White Paper “Accelerating Energy Transition” guiding policy makers on how to build a friendlier framework for IMET solutions. All these activities will collectively contribute to unlocking the necessary technologies to reach a zero emissions future.
Following the pre-deployment phase of the IMET initiative, it is time to take stock and assess the extent to which Intelligent Mobility technologies are being adopted in Europe and whether the right policy frameworks are in place to support them. It is important to carry out this assessment now to ensure that as the deployment of new technologies ramps up key learnings are applied to take help most in moving towards the energy transition.
Find hereunder a series of profile interviews showcasing the achievements of the IMET initiative of the Smart Cities Marketplace.
We have not only interviewed senior executives and policy influencers, who reflect on the key learnings and successes from the initiative, but also 10 entrepreneurs with impactful projects that showcase what intelligent mobility is doing to improve energy systems, what are the socio-economic and environmental benefits for citizens and how their business models look like.
