Framework agreement for delivery of up to 300 charging points in the context of the Portuguese electromobility program MOBI.E
Siemens helps to put London at the forefront of electromobility.
Source London is one of the largest electric vehicle charging networks in the UK. The project will see the installation of around 1,300 charging points by 2013 in collaboration with various private and public sector partners across the capital.
Source London aims to reduce pollution, encourage the uptake of electric vehicles and establish London at the centre of the electric vehicle revolution. Siemens provides the underlying IT systems infrastructure and services, the portal and customer interface.
The European Commission has kicked off Green eMotion, a 4 year initiative to develop the framework for electromobility in Europe. The 43 partners in the initiative comprising industrial companies and automobile manufacturers, utilities, municipalities, universities, and technology and research institutions are to input, exchange and expand their know-how and experience in selected regions within Europe.
Siemens is the lead company in the research consortium and contributes to the development of software and charging infrastructure solutions, and to the necessary establishment of industrial standards.
This internal Siemens pilot project is Germany-wide in scope, and examines the suitability of electric vehicles in day-to-day use. For this test, Siemens is building up a test fleet of up to 100 cars that Siemens employees will test in actual use. The drivers data is streamed directly into the ongoing development of infrastructure products and software solutions.
The project is intended to provide a better understanding of usage habits and the potential additional demands that may be placed on vehicles and infrastructure. This underlines the integrated approach Siemens brings to this market of the future.

Working with BMW AG and the Munich municipal utility company (Stadtwerke München SWM), Siemens is carrying out a joint project on electro-mobility in the Model Region Munich (MRM). The project partners learn more about user behavior and preferences based on different scenarios. In addition, innovative technical components, products, and systems for electromobility are being developed and tested in the course of the project.
Siemens develops a system for inductive charging of electric vehicles in cooperation with BMW AG. The batteries of electric vehicles can be charged contact-free via inductive energy flow. The components are being fully integrated into several electric vehicles of BMW as demonstrators. Starting in June, a new field test in Berlin will determine the performance of the developed systems under real conditions, in order to establish the necessary improvements for the integration in series vehicles. The project is being supported by the German Federal Environment Ministry.
The overall purpose of the EDISON project is to bring together research institutions and major industry enterprises and to comprehensively work through all stages of the EV topic, from research through concept and technology development to demonstration. This project will focus primarily on the first two areas: research and concept and technology development.
Harz.EE-mobility is exploring how regionally generated renewable energy can best be used for electric vehicles and how it can be integrated into the smart gird in a controlled way. Electric vehicles will serve as mobile storage units, a promising way to balance loads in the smart power grid of the future. Information and communication technologies combine data from many different areas, thereby allowing comprehensive coordination.
