In order for cities to meet their transport emissions reduction targets, many around the world are deploying electric buses, with mass production reducing both unit costs and the associated technological risks. Today, electric vehicles offer reliable technology, a stable operating environment, a practical daily range and ready access to a variety of proven charging systems, either at the depots or on the street.
Against this background, the ASSURED project has been fundamental in advancing the electrification of urban commercial fleets and their integration with high-power, fast-charging infrastructure. To achieve this, the project has developed and tested high-power solutions for full-size, urban, heavy-duty applications, with the goal for each being to be able to successfully charge various types of vehicles. This would enable operators to ‘mix-and- match’ the different brands of vehicles and chargers they deploy.
Under the coordination of VUB – and strongly supported by UITP as the demonstration activities leader – the ASSURED project gathered the most relevant players along the entire value chain of electric mobility.
This project brief recaps the main outcomes of the ASSURED project.
This Project Brief is part of the research project ASSURED which has received funding by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, under grant agreement No 769850. It was prepared by the partners of the ASSURED project. Find out more at www.assured-project.eu.
