From across the South Baltic area there are many actors with interest in electric mobility and they contribute with different competencies to the network.
Universities and Research Institutes will have to support the development of e-mobility through research into the challenges that countries, companies, power grids, and other facilities will come up against as the transformation progresses. Researchers try to look ahead of the development and identify issues and challenges before they emerge and there are a number of examples of this in e-mobility:
Research Institute of Sweden - RISE
RISE has built a number of first-class facilities for the development of vehicle technologies, testing features of electric vehicles. One of the facilities is a test-driving track AstaZero. In the CAR-project RISE has invested in a charging system for a housing association.
The Technical University of Denmark - DTU
The Danish government sees the access to a large number of car batteries as a resource for storing electricity and thereby increasing the already very high share of wind generated electricity of more than 40%. The DTU has a key role by researching the interfaces between large fleets of electric vehicles and the power grid. We are proud to have the DTU as a part of our network. In the CAR-project, the DTU has developed a Strategic Manual for installations of charging posts and researched the interface between electric vehicle fleets and the electric grid. You can read the Strategic Manual here.
Gdansk University of Technology - GUT
Up until now there has been no technology or system for the recycling of lithium-ion batteries. Researchers at Gdansk University of Technology have taken on this challenge and in the CAR project they have, with support from the South Baltic Interreg Programme, developed a process for the fragmentation of batteries into fractions that can be recycled.
Ostfalia Research Centre of Energy and Mobility – CEMO
The aim of the Research Center of Energy and Mobility (CEMO) is to support research and to merge research activities of the different players at the Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences in interaction with external partners. Further interest of the CEMO is to exchange and distribute the interfaculty and interdisciplinary information as well as knowledge transfer concerning energy- and mobility-activities between Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences, companies, energy providers and customers. The aim is also to publish the results of research-activities with means of symposiums, workshops and publications. The vision of the CEMO is to provide the energy for the electric vehicles mostly out of regenerative energy-sources and to create the future mobility with a minimum of CO2-emissions.
