Project in Focus: INCIT-EV

The automotive industry is committed to achieving the targets for climate neutrality. Consequently, the manufacturers are constantly expanding their portfolios of electric vehicles. However, their market penetration strongly depends on the charging infrastructure availability.

The INCIT-EV project (Large demonstration of user Centric urban and long-range charging solutions to boost an engaging deployment of Electric Vehicles in Europe) aims to demonstrate an innovative set of charging infrastructures, technologies, and associated business models, ready to improve the EV users experience. 

Over the next three years, the project will build demonstration environments in Amsterdam, Paris, Tallin, Torino, Utrecht and Zaragoza. The seven uses cases include slow and fast charging, static and dynamic charging, and bi-directional charging, including vehicle to grid services. 

The project is coordinated by Renault Group together with 33 partners, including 3 OEMs, 6 charging technology providers, five public authorities, 6 RTOs, 2 ICT companies, two road infrastructures companies, 4 DSOs, 2 TSOs, 2 SMEs with expertise in user behaviour and e-mobility exploitation, a car-sharing services SME and an EV users’ association.
