Along with 31 other stakeholders, ABB will collaborate with eCharge4Drivers to conduct demonstrations across key European cities to understand consumers’ perspective on electric vehicle charging infrastructure. ABB is proud to partner in the eCharge4Drivers project, part of the Low Carbon Green Vehicles program User centric charging infrastructure. A European Commission initiative which invites and supports consortia to develop smarter and more convenient electric vehicle charging infrastructure, eCharge4Drivers has been developed to accelerate the shift towards electrified and sustainable mobility. eCharge4Drivers project will start to investigate in more detail users’ perceptions and expectations on various charging and mobility options and parking habits across the EU. This will inform the subsequent design and development of relevant solutions in improved chargers and convenient services.

eCharge4Drivers will develop and demonstrate pilot projects in 10 regions across Europe, including metropolitan areas and Trans-European Transport Network TEN-T corridors, with ABB supplying multiple chargers for use in the majority of the pilot areas. The pilots create the opportunity to develop and test new technologies which improve the charging experience, delighting drivers with advancements that are not otherwise available with ICE vehicles.

ABB will develop easy-to-use, scalable electric vehicle chargers for the demonstration with new functionalities such as large digital displays with customizable, user-friendly interfaces. The modular chargers can be expanded according to usage and will be carried across demo sites in containers. The chargers will feature ABB’s Dynamic DC sharing technology, which supports power sharing across multiple charging points, enabling high power charging for high performance vehicles as needed.

The charging stations and all other peripheral equipment will support the ISO 15118 Plug & Charge features, creating a standardized ecosystem for the transfer of information and enabling interoperability to increase the usability and efficiency of the chargers. The chargers will have a site power manager and all energy measurements will be in accordance with the European Measurement Instruments Directive. Users will have several payment options, including credit cards and smartphones.
