As part of SeQueRe, Hubject and its project partners have been investigating since June 2023 how queuing and reservation functions can improve the charging experience at public charging stations and increase the market penetration of electromobility. The goal is to standardize interfaces and data structures for the implementation of a reservation function to ensure and test the interoperability of different systems. A customer journey and use case definition, developed within the project, serves as the basis for the prototype development. The project is supported by the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport with over 2 million euros. Hubject is particularly involved in the following content:
With the Spirit-E project, we have been working on developing a reservation system for shared private charging infrastructure at truck depots since August 2023. This system enables the energy integration of proprietary commercial vehicles into depot processes and the power grid. The goal of the research project is to test reservation and charging strategies, as well as bidirectional charging processes (V2X), in order to identify possible hurdles in the electrification of the commercial vehicle sector and to develop economical solutions. We are actively involved in the following aspects:
The goal of this project, started in fall 2022, is to design and implement an app-based, cross-provider assistant for route and charge planning for EV users. The essential components of the solution's core functionalities include high efficiency in the human-to-machine interface through AI, with the consideration of vehicle-specific parameters and external factors for a sophisticated, eMobility-tailored navigation system.
With DeRive we are establishing a framework for the optimal use of bidirectional energy transmission from EVs to the grid, in order to provide additional energy to grid services. We will create an implementation guideline as the basis for an adaptation of the VDE application rule of ISO 15118 which ensures a uniform standard of implementation.
With this project, we aim to improve the EV charging experience in urban areas and on interurban corridors to incentivize the transition to EV. To achieve this, the interoperability of mobility services must be finetuned. We are focusing on the following aspects of the project:
Our interdisciplinary research focus is the integration of electric vehicles into decentralized energy grids and the creation of several reference quarters for the synergetic interaction of electromobility, power grids and heat supply grids. We are currently involved in four of the campus’ five research topics:
We are creating intelligent solutions to support the expansion of charging infrastructure in parking lots by utilising portable, battery-based chargers and clever software for EMP which ensures the optimal distribution of power based on demand and energy supply. A project partner since early 2021, we contribute to the following areas:
In this join research project, we are generating intelligent financial incentive systems for end customers to achieve optimal utilization of in-demand public charging infrastructure and simultaneously support grid-serving charging. We are involved in the following research areas:
