New INTERREG North West Europe Programme's "Clean Mobility and Energy for Cities" project kicked-off

The project had its kick off meeting in the city of the lead partner, Arnhem on the 24th and 25th October 2017 with the project continuing until March 2021.

Within this project, a renewable energy generation plant will be built in four locations across the North West Europe region. Demonstration sites will be placed in:

  • Arnhem (NL),
  • Schwäbisch-Gmünd (DE),
  • London (UK) and
  • Nottingham (UK).

The pilots will consist of different technological approaches at the four location locations, this will provide for better analysis and scale.

All partners together will develop a system for distributing energy flows across storage, charging facilities and the net, with the current being traded at a favorable moment in time.

The project will also investigate whether the different combinations in the diverse countries lead to an economically viable system.

The Lead partner Arnhem will work in the project together with, Transport for London, City of Nottingham, the European Institute for Innovation – Technology, the Paris research agency IAU Ile de France, the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology, the British Center of Excellence for Low Carbon and Fuel Cell technologies and the European network organisations of Polis and AVERE.

The €7.4 million project will significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions in cities and towns by combining renewable energy sources, energy storage and the charging of electric vehicles using an innovative energy management system, iEMS.
