GreenCharge will empower cities and municipalities to make the transition as to zero-emission/sustainable mobility with innovative business models, technologies and guidelines for cost-efficient and successful deployment and operation of charging infrastructure for EVs. Inspired by ideas from sharing economy, the business models will focus on enabling the mutualisation of excess capacity of private RES, private charging facilities and the batteries of parked EVs, leveraging fair gain sharing to ensure sufficient incentives for all stakeholders to participate. The enabling technology will coordinate the power demand of charging with other local demand and availability of local RRES, leveraging load flexibility and storage capacity of local stationary batteries and parked EVs. This will reduce the need for grid investments to establish new charging stations, remove range anxiety and enable the sharing of already existing dedicated charging facilities for EV fleets.
There are 3 pilot sites that demonstrate and evaluate the proposed approach: Barcelona, Bremen and Oslo.
The pilots will be extended with simulations for exploring more complex scenarios not possible to test in the pilots and to assess scalability. The guidelines will synthesize the experience from the pilots and simulations and advice on localisation of charging points, grid reductions, and policy and public communications measures for accelerating the uptake of electromobility, and will be aligned with SUMP processes.

Measured, quantitative outcomes / project impact
ICLEI's first role is in the innovation management task to ensure that the project is aligned with the development of the state of the art technologies and the market possibilities. In this task, alongside with the Innovation Manager, we monitor internal and external activities, market developments and European policy with respect to t e-mobility, that is relevant to the project.
The second main task is to coordinate the task that involves the Uptake Cities Group. We have established a group of 10 cities that have expressed their interest in the project. Each city will develop a roadmap on the construction, configuration and location of charging infrastructures designed to promote the use of electric or hybrid rechargeable vehicles, and for the integration of these roadmaps in their respective SUMPs. Study visits to 3 pilots sites and 5 webinars are envisaged for the cities involvement.
ICLEI has also a communication/dissemination role. Finally, we are organising a 150 participant conference in the final year of the project.
