MOLECULES Interest Group talked electro-mobility in Paris this week
The well attended workshop saw the participation of the MOLECULES consortium and several stakeholders from the public and private sector operating in France; the two local clusters Advancity and Systematic; French Institute of Science and Technology for Transport, Development and Networks (IFSTTAR); energy provider EDF. We had two guests from neighbouring Belgium, one expert in the field of EU funded transport research projects from Barcelona and a representative from the City of Aalborg in Denmark.
The group gathered to talk smart-connected electro-mobility and to learn about the state-of-the-art of deployment of electric vehicles in the three MOLECULES demonstration sites: Barcelona, Berlin, Neuilly-sur-Seine and Marne-la-Vallée (Grand Paris). The project coordinator ETRA (Spain) presented the methodology towards the definition of an open architecture for the integration and interoperability of a range of seven ICT services which will be tested in a number of small scale pilots.
MOLECULES Demonstration pilot: Marne-la-Vallée (Paris)
That very morning took place the presentation and launch of the first electric car-sharing scheme in Marne-la-Vallée (Paris). The event was attended by representatives from RATP and SNCF, and the press who learned about MOLECULES and its joint approach of three flagship cities in Europe towards the development of integrated ICT solutions for smart-connected electro-mobility.
MOPEasy, partner in the MOLECULES project, presented the mobility strategy set in cooperation with RATP to create an intermodal platform at the RER Noisiel station. The new car-sharing scheme is up and running with initially three electric cars only. The service has fully integrated online booking and paying system through the webpage monautopartage.fr also accessible via smartphone application. The MOPeasy concept is to bring a flexible individual mobility solution from local to global and thus to increase the mobility offer with new clean vehicles.
