FP7 UNPLUGGED project - inductive charging for electric vehicles

ENIDE presented UNPLUGGED at the 3RD European Electric Vehicle Congress & EU Project Day on eMobility

The UNPLUGGED project has participated at the 3rd EEVC held in Brussels from the  2nd to the 5th of  December, 2014.  The Congress was specifically intended to develop synergies among the eMobility stakeholders, featuring 140 presentations made by experts of the sector.

UNNPLUGGED took part in the congress and members from ENIDE had the opportunity to address questions of the audience in the UNPLUGGED booth and to present a poster about the case studies of London and Barcelona concerning the deployment of inductive charging spots. In parallel, UNPLUGGED was also presented at a Round Table, with a special emphasis laid upon the experience of Barcelona.

On the day before the Congress, an EU Project day was organized in order to offer a detailed outlook of the different programs dealing with eMobility supported by the European Authorities.  Stefano Persi from ENIDE introduced UNPLUGGED. The presentation, focused on the benefits of using inductive charging in Electric Vehicles, included an overview of the project and the test sites in Aachen and Zaragoza.


2nd General Assembly

Last March, we had our UNPLUGGED 2nd General Assembly in Aachen, Germany.

It has been a great and excellent opportunity to present news and results of the project, having an open discussion among the consortium members on the activities and future steps. In addition, we had the opportunity to enjoy this beautiful city, located on the border with Belgium and the Netherlands.

During the different workshops – especially during the meeting with the external Advisory Board members, we have shared our visions of the different aspects related to the implementation of wireless charging technologies for electric vehicles, focusing on the interoperability issues beyond the technical implementations

The challenge of developing inductive charging technology on the track is taking account the growing demand for electric vehicles EV, allowing a better social acceptance of electric vehicles and the necessary infrastructure, improving and demonstrating progress in safety, comfort, ease of use, less impact on the urban landscape and a better resilience to vandalism, users as well as users feeling of freedom (one of the main reasons that consumers purchase those vehicles).
