Energy ManagEment and RechArging for efficient eLectric car Driving


The goal of demonstration activities is to ensure that all of the developed system components and tools deliver the expected functionalities, as well as to properly evaluate the impact of the project’s concept and solutions.




EMERALD will conduct three complementary types of trials:

  • simulation trials based on EMERALD’s FEV Traffic and Power Flow Simulation Platform
  • driving simulator trials and driver training based on EMERALD’s Energy-aware Real-size Driving Simulator
  • field trials with actual FEVs, both in controlled environments (e.g. test tracks at manufacturing sites) and in real-world trial sites, depending on the production stage of the FEVs involved in the project and on the testing strategy
  • field city trials with a fully electric bus

The field trial sites of EMERALD will include both urban areas as well as the interurban region between urban centers. Particularly, for real-life trials EMERALD has selected two main sites:

  • Lucca (Tuscany, Italy) in which the field trials will be urban, will focus on commercial (freight) vehicles operation
  • the interurban region between Bilbao, Vitoria-Gasteiz and Donostia-San Sebastian (Basque Country, Spain), in which the field trials will involve both urban centers and the interurban areas between them, will target more generally FEVs for passenger mobility
