For E.V.s, the development of an interactive electric energy ICT & Service interface between the vehicle and its electricity infrastructure is of utmost importance, next to creating effective business models. The rationale of this project is to contribute significantly to neutralize the driver’s “range anxiety” and encourage the customers to embark the fully electric road transport.

Therefore the objective of ELVIRE is to develop an on-board electric energy communication & service platform for realistic use-cases including the relevant external communication and services. Great emphasis is placed on the openness of the Electricityservice platform granting access to multiple players maintaining the customer’s choice. ELVIRE will become crucial to future electric road transport by closing the gap between vehicle technology and the off-board E-ICT and service environment. ELVIRE will have strong impact by strengthening competitiveness, energy efficiency and reduce emissions and improve by promoting electrification.
