The municipality of Amsterdam set high ambitions for a liveable car-free city, which are increasingly taking effect resulting in an extensive EV charging infrastructure and a carbon free energy system.

Peripheral smart renewable energy and mobility hubs for V2G uptake in highly congested urban grids
The demonstrator contributes to a larger uptake of V2X in semi-controlled smart Energy and Mobility (EM) hubs in Amsterdam, especially those strategically located along the main road of the city. Multiple EM-hubs are under development in the city, tailored in scale and functioning to local circumstances like the grid situation.
Flexibility services are offered by EVs owners in three different scenarios:
- during specific events, avoiding a huge energy grid demand
- for the offices reducing solar surplus grid injection through energy delivery and smart charging depending on specific energy situations
- in collaboration with the DSO the demo contributes to local grid congestion, by avoiding grid demand and controlled grid injection
