The vision of NeMo is to create a Hyper-Network of new and existing tools, models and services which will provide seamless interoperability of electromobility services, creating an open, distributed and widely accepted ecosystem for electromobility. NeMo aims at bringing the successful interoperability paradigm of seamless roaming (as in mobile telecommunications) into the domain of electromobility services, paving the way for a Pan-European eRoaming framework
The ambition of AEOLIX is to increase end-to-end visibility in the supply chain, across multiple modes and actors, enabling each logistics actor to manage, (re-)plan and synchronise facilities in the supply chain through a flexible cloud-based collaborative ecosystem in a trusted business environment. A main goal is to achieve high environmental, economic and social impacts.
The goal of optiTruck is to bring together the most advanced technologies from powertrain control and intelligent transport systems in order to achieve a global optimum for consumption of fuel (at least 20% reduction) as well as other energy sources and consumables while achieving Euro VI emission standards for heavy duty road haulage (40t).
The main objective of SUCCES is to reduce the negative impacts of freight distribution in city urban areas and to reduce its costs. In order to do so, the project focuses on to what extent and how the Supply Chain Management and Construction Consolidation Centres (CCCs) concepts could bring about tested and replicable solutions (adequate collaborative frameworks and, as result, sustainable business models) to address problems in the construction supply chains, focusing on distribution networks, construction sites and reverse logistics. SUCCESS addresses the feasibility of optimising and integrating the supply chain (for example introducing supplier’s cooperation schemes, contractors’ integration arrangements, introducing optimization tools, etc.).
Key logistics stakeholders from seven European cities/logistics hubs have joined forces to deploy, validate and set-up after project life of five piloted cooperative logistics services combining cooperative mobility services and intelligent cargo with real-life logistical aspects. CO-GISTICS services will increase energy efficiency and equivalent CO2 emissions, bringing additional benefits in road safety and cargo security. To achieve these goals public authorities, fleet operators, freight forwarders, industrial partners and other stakeholders will jointly implement five services: CO2 Footprint Estimation and Monitoring, Multimodal Cargo, Intelligent Truck Parking and Delivery Area Management, Eco-Drive Support, Priority and Speed Advice. These services will be piloted over one year of real life driving.
Energy Production and Distribution (EP&D) networks have rapidly increased their size and complexity. Thus, there is an increasing need of systems supporting the operational, regulatory and design decisions through a highly inter-disciplinary approach, where experts of all the concerned fields contribute to the definition of appropriate mathematical models.
This is particularly challenging because these models require the simultaneous use of many different mathematical optimization tools and the verification by experts of the underlying engineering and financial issues. The COST framework is instrumental for this Action to be able to coordinate the inter-disciplinary efforts of scientists and industrial players at the European level.
