fASt and Smart charging solutions for full size URban hEavy Duty applications
The ASSURED project will address the electrification of urban commercial vehicles and their integration with fast charging infrastructure in different cities across Europe. To do so, the project will test innovative heavy-duty and medium-duty vehicle solutions with different interoperable charging infrastructure concepts that will be developed into business cases, taking into account commercial as well as societal costs and benefits.
The ASSURED consortium gathers 39 partners from 12 European countries covering the entire value chain of urban heavy-duty transport and light duty vehicles, and including public transport authorities and operators, bus manufacturers, truck manufacturers, light duty manufacturers, charging solution suppliers, energy providers, national and international associations, cities, consultancies and research centres.
UITP will lead the User Acceptance & Demonstration in the Cities activities ensuring a wide support of partner cities and end-users to the take‐up of business cases across Europe, as well as the project dissemination, collaboration and networking for an effective exploitation of project results.
