The Mobena project was launched in September 2021 for two years. It brings together players from all the electric mobility value chain in France. Its aims to support the e-mobility companies in ensuring a successful deployment of the new generation of electric vehicle charging solutions. These solutions will simplify the user experience and improve the quality of service.
Plug and Charge, Smart Charging: developing new services
Plug and Charge and smart charging will be the first provided services. They require interactions between many players through various IT interfaces. These services must be clear, homogeneous, and interoperable to be easily adopted. Any vehicle must be able to charge with any charging infrastructure, relying on any service provider.
GIREVE joins a gathering of 20 partners.
The Mobena project gathers 20 partners from the mobility sector: Atos, Chargepoly, CRITT M2A, EDF, FEV France, GIREVE, Hager, IES Synergy, Legrand, Nexans, Renault, SAP Labs, Schneider Electric, Stations-e, Stellantis, Thales, TotalEnergies, Valeo, VINCI Energies. The project is driven by VEDECOM.
Mobena is part of an initiative addressing next-generation charging systems. This action was launched in 2020 by an initiative committee comprising AFIREV, AVERE-France, GIMELEC, PFA, UFE and VEDECOM.
Harmonized actions at a European level
Consensus and unity within the industry are prior to ensure the successful deployment of Plug and Charge and smart charging in an interoperable manner at European level.
To achieve this goal, Mobena seeks to collaborate with European organizations for the development and adoption of a reference architecture, both from a technical and organizational point of view. Such an architecture will ensure the interoperability of systems and allow an open and competitive market between electromobility players. It will allow end users and operators to freely select their service providers.
