Coordination Action

ICT4FEV is a Coordination Action in the framwork of the European Green Cars Initiative. The focus of the project is on enabling the full electric vehicle (FEV) by opening new technology paths towards energy efficiency, functionality and usability that are complementary to future advances in performance of battery cell technology. The objectives of the project include: to build a R&D community, to edit a European roadmap, to recommend standards, regulations, business cases and R&D priorities, and to establish a European Organization / Think Tank for the FEV.

The consortium is lead by VDI/VDE-IT and includes as members CRF (I), Siemens (D), NXP (NL), and EADS (F), as well as AVL List (A). Further organisations have been invited to contribute to the project as associate partners.

ICT4FEV started on 1 May 2010 as the first project of the European Green Cars Initiative. It is funded by the European Commission's Directorate General Information Society and Media and has a duration of 24 months.

Objective

The proposed coordination action addresses enabling technologies of full electric vehicles (FEV). The focus of the initiative is set on ICT which open new technology paths towards energy efficiency, functionality and usability and are complementary to future advances in performance of battery cell technology. To fight climate change, cut emissions and secure energy supply, transport based on FEVs will soon be strongly demanded by public and private stakeholders worldwide. It can be foreseen that early technology leadership will be determinant for the global competitiveness of major European industries such as the automotive, energy and ICT sector.ICT4FEV is aiming at building a R&D community, creating a European roadmap and recommending standards, regulations, business cases and R&D priorities for the FEV. In its core consortium it will therefore bring together for the first time major industrial partners to start a dialogue on a common understanding about impact, R&D priorities, infrastructure needs and requirements. Opportunities of technology transfer, e.g. between electric road vehicles and aircrafts, shall be taken into account and foresighted recommendations shall be made.To broaden the view of its work, ICT4FEV will involve more than 15 key stakeholders representing both academia and the involved industry sectors from across Europe. Particularly involved will be vehicle manufacturers and suppliers, companies from the energy sector focussing on the vehicle-to-grid interface (V2G) and companies from the electronics and semiconductor sector dealing with components and systems. Furthermore, representatives of European and international public authorities shall take part in the dialogue.The outcome of ICT4FEV will serve as guideline for setting strategic priorities on a European level and by presenting the European FEV strategy at international events it will help to demonstrate the innovation strength of Europe in the field of FEV. At the same time, ICT4FEV shall serve as a platform for public information and network building in Europe.
