The EV Energy project aims to analyse, initiate and implement policies favouring sustainable energy and electric mobility systems in urban areas. It works with experienced cities and regions, transferring the most appropriate policies and drivers.The project focuses on three thematic areas: Renewable energies; Electric mobility and Infrastructures (Smart grids, ICT, etc.). Resourcefully co-initiated this project and is now subcontracted to support the development and delivery of project contents and project management.
CME contributes to a significant reduction of GHG emissions in the NWE urban areas which assists NWE to meet EU 2030/2050 targets. Currently, high investments are made in renewable energy resources (RES), but they are not being used efficiently. At the same time, the market uptake of electrical vehicles (EV’s) is accelerating, mainly charged with electricity from fossil fuels. Both result in unnecessary GHG-emissions, and in unprofitable business cases due to high (grid)investments and low revenues on RE. Resourcefully co-initiated this project initiative and is now subcontracted to support the development of project contents and in specific the management of the case of the city of Arnhem (NL).
SEEV4-City supports the transition to a low-carbon economy, combining electric vehicles (EV), renewable energy and smart energy management. The project explores the potential of bidirectional charging (Vehicle to Grid technology) and the use of EV batteries as storage, to reduce CO2 emissions and save investments in grid refurbishment works.
Hugo Niesing, from Resourcefully, is responsible for the management of the SEEV4-City project on behalf of the lead partner HvA
Project Parent (PARticipatory platform for sustainable ENergy managemenT) focuses on energy savings in households through the application of innovative information technologies. A software-based solution becomes an extensible, reusable, socially acceptable and marketable platform, incorporating real-time energy information, novel gaming and other reward mechanisms to achieve energy efficiency by stimulating behavioural change.
Green IT Amsterdam Region aims to improve energy consumption by intelligent IT approaches. Resourcefully supported the recently approved EU initiative ‘GreenITNet’. ‘Smart’ ICT decreasing electricity use is central. Objective of GreenITNet is to enhance EU´s cities, regions and countries to develop a Green IT policy framework, good practises & effective policies.
The EU project e-harbours, run between 2012 and 2015, pursues a to increase the use of renewable energy in harbours, as well as the amount of electric mobility thanks to the use of smart grids.
Amsterdam Vehicle to grid
Amsterdam V2G demonstrates how e-mobility, renewable energy, domestic electricity usage, the electricity grid and intelligence can enforce each other in the smart energy future.
Zaanstad’s own smart grid system ‘REloadIT’ is innovative technology for clean mobility. This system optimises the exploitation of renewable energy and electric mobility. This system has been developed during the e-harbours project, with support from Resourcefully.
