Open platform for shared charging infrastructure
Research Project , 2020 – 2021

Purpose and goal: Novoleap, together with our partners Berendsen, Convini, Martin & Servera, Mathem, Grönsakshallen Sorunda and NCC, as well as Lund University and Chalmers University of Technology, want to contribute to a faster green transition in the transport industry. Our project aims to lower thresholds for electrification through shared charging infrastructure where actors such as carriers and product owners can work together without lock-in effects and provide better conditions for planning their electrified transports.
Expected results and effects: By enabling the sharing of infrastructure, even smaller players can quickly recoup financial gains from electrification. Rapid electrification will deliver societal benefits in the form of both lower CO2 emissions and a cleaner urban environment where an ever-increasing electrified vehicle fleet reduces noise levels and particulate emissions.
Approach and implementation: At the start of the project, a structured data collection takes place at our partners, which is then validated using our own analysis method. In parallel, we start with validation and further development of the open platform, initially with a focus on data models and business models, where we include research aspects through Lund University and Chalmers. The work created within the project is validated and analyzed and creates the basis for implementation plans and commercialization as well as dissemination within academia.
