During the course of three and a half years, the GreenCharge project has proposed innovative solutions to help address the barriers to the wide uptake of eMobility. This deliverable presents the GreenCharge concept, approach and the main achievements in this regard. In the GreenCharge concept, electric vehicles, charge management and local energy management work together to facilitate a transport system running on green energy. This requires the integration of the transport, building and energy

The GreenCharge Reference Architecture provides a full-fledged specification of the ecosystem for smart and green charging and acts as a blueprint guiding the creation of individual system realisations into a coherent ecosystem for eMobility. Recommendations for the standardisation of the necessary functionality and requirements for protocols are suggested. The GreenCharge business models have been designed through participatory workshops and represented as multi-sided marketplace business models, instead of traditional "pipeline" business models. The business models cover innovative business aspects developed in the demonstrators as well as futuristic ones that are not feasible to demonstrate in the current state of practice. The GreenCharge project has set up demonstrators in three pilot cities: Oslo (Norway), Bremen (Germany) and Barcelona (Spain). The demonstrators are complementary in maturity and conditions with regard to the transition to eMobility. Each demo is supported by business models and technology prototypes that realise a selective set of innovative features defined in the Reference Architecture based on the local context. Together the demonstrators have experimented with the concept of smart energy management that makes use of local Renewable Energy Sources (RES) for charging, the flexible sharing of the charging infrastructure and the flexible sharing of various kinds of EVs. The GreenCharge evaluation framework and tools help establish k [...]
