aVEnir project: develop smart charging

What is the aVEnir project?

On September 25th, 2019, 11 industrial and academic partners – Groupe Renault, Groupe PSA, Schneider Electric, Total EV Charge, Groupe EDF (subsidy IZIVIA), Dreev, GIREVE, Trialog, Electric 55 Charging, Université Grenoble Alpes, Aix Marseille Université – joined Enedis, the public energy distribution network to implement the aVEnir project. The project aims at fostering e-mobility on the French territory and prepare mass-scale development.

The plan is to create interactions between the public system of electricity distribution, charging stations and EV, and to analyse the influence of smart charging of EV on the ecosystem.

Smart charging management

Create interactions between EV charging stations and the energy network to test different charging management strategies in real conditions

Integration of EV to the grid

Test smart charging solutions to facilitate the integration of EV on the network (thanks to Vehicle to Grid techniques -V2G- and synchronisation between charging and solar production)

Flexibility management

Evaluate the opportunities brought by EV for the management of local flexibilities on the electrical grid
