SCALE is a three-year project (2022-2025) co-funded by the new Horizon Europe Programme with a budget of around 10 million EUR. It aims to advance smart charging infrastructure and facilitate the mass deployment of electric vehicles. The project will reduce uncertainties around the roll-out of smart charging, interoperable and V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) solutions, whether these are technical, organizational, economic, social or policy-related, and help shape a new energy eco-system wherein the flexibility of EV batteries’ is harnessed. A consortium of 29 partners composed of leading European cities, universities and knowledge partners, charging infrastructure companies, electric vehicle (EV) industry pioneers and more will steer the project.
The Consortium comprises cutting-edge European e-mobility actors including Distribution System Operators (DSOs), aggregators, public authorities, and e-mobility service providers. It is led by ElaadNL, one of the world’s leading knowledge and innovation centres in the field of smart charging and charging infrastructure, with a global reputation as leading advocate for open protocols in electric mobility.
