The Gothenburg Demo-launch is the first of the ASSURED demos kicking off! This first-of-its-kind event will showcase a series of technologies for flexible high-power charging and interoperability of urban commercial vehicles developed within ASSURED and demonstrated by Volvo in Gothenburg.

The ASSURED joint UG workshop will explore the challenges and needs of ZE fleets for bus and freight operators, with a focus on the use of charging infrastructure. During the session, speakers will share their experience with ZE vehicles in the “Impulse Talks”, which will be followed by a joint discussion with the ASSURED PT and UF UG Members. We will provide you detailed information on the agenda in the coming days.


Within the ASSURED project (www.assured-project.eu), Polis coordinates the ASSURED Urban Freight User Group (UF UG), where relevant experts including local authorities, logistics service providers, OEMs, grid and charging infrastructure operators, are invited to attend key project events and to exchange on and validate the project innovations.
