The Energy Electronics, Components and Systems (Energy ECS) project is a mix of areas that need increased attention for unlocking the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the mobility and energy sectors. As societies are becoming increasingly data-driven and are shaped by innovative technology, the Energy ECS project shapes the future of e-mobility by electrifying the mobility industry with the aim of reducing carbon footprints in Europe through energy transitions.
The Energy ECS project builds on six use cases that represent different angles on the future of mobility and energy. The use cases have the potential to solve real challenges related to carbon emissions and are aimed at creating viable business solutions. The initiative tackles the following areas: enablers of new logistic modes, energy-independent intermodal transport, advanced charging technologies, grid stability responding to bi-directional charging, and enablers of safe autonomous driving.
The advancement of e-mobility is a key part of the green energy transition. Together with its direct role in reducing emissions, the adoption of e-mobility can have a crucial indirect role as a grid stability element if managed intelligently. E-mobility accelerates the transition to wind and solar energy production, thus reducing the use of fossil fuels in the energy mix.
This is an extensive three-year project that truly has the potential to contribute to the European Green Deal Objectives via its ambitions and targets. The project has received funding from the ECSEL Joint Undertaking (JU) under grant agreement No. 101007247. The JU receives support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme in Austria, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Sweden and Switzerland. The effort is coordinated by Tietoevry and is carried out by 16 small and mid-sized enterprises, eight large enterprises, and six research and technology organizations from countries across Europe.
