OMEI - Open Mobility Electrical Infrastructure
Data-based concept for a holistic solution approach for sustainable electric charging infrastructure
The goal of the research project is to realize a holistic solution approach for sustainable electric charging infrastructure based on a data-driven concept.
The project goal is also to create a freely available data and tool basis for the planning and optimization of fast charging infrastructures. Here, regional renewable energy is integrated with sustainable energy storage in a common concept for charging infrastructures. In addition, a concept and framework for an intelligent bidirectional use of electric vehicle storage will be created.
- Site optimization
- Low network load

CCP - CrossChargePoint
Multifunctional e-charging stations: Added value through more functions
The research project "CrossChargePoint" investigates possibilities for charging stations with added value for users, cities, municipalities and operator organizations. The aim is to support rural areas in particular in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
E- charging stations could theoretically do much more than just charge e-vehicles. They could be valuable building blocks in a region's energy management by additionally being used as energy storage: In the event of excessive energy supply,GER the energy could be converted by electrolysis and power-to-gas to also fuel gas- or hydrogen-powered vehicles.
With CrossChargePoint, a decentralized intermediate energy storage network could be created at the charging stations, analogous to large pumped storage power plants. On the one hand, this could supply traffic with alternative fuels - electricity, gas, hydrogen - and on the other hand, support the local power grid. Fluctuations in supply and demand in the local power grid would thus be better absorbed.
Regional requirements for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions
The research work takes into account special requirements of different regions due to different geographical, climatic and economic conditions. Especially in rural areas with low population density and limited grid capacity, the development of alternative fuel infrastructures is challenging. Economic viability is often questionable when supply needs are limited to a few hours per week.
In the research project, the technological concept of a "CrossChargePoint" is being developed. The "CrossChargePoint" combines fast charging capabilities with energy generation, energy carrier conversion and storage functions. For this purpose, the project partners are developing a system architecture as well as the infrastructure for data and information exchange for a regional energy management system. Interdependencies that arise between the ICT system, the electrical grid and the transport sector are also taken into account.
The CCP project involves selected partners from industry and research, including Deggendorf Institute of Technolgogy (Germany), AVL List (Austria), Salzburg Research Forschungsgesellschaft mbH (Austria), FENECON GmbH(Germany), Urban Software Institute GmbH(Germany), HyCentA Research GmbH (Austria), ASKI Industrie-Elektronik GmbH(Austria), Livolt Ltd (Israel), Yeruham Local Council (Israel), Energie Kompass GmbH (Austria) and Bwv its GmbH (Switzerland).
OpenEMS - Open Source Energy Management System
OpenEMS is a modular platform for energy management applications. The system wasGER developed to control, monitor and integrate energy storage systems with renewable energy generators and complementary devices and services. The software is published as open source.
The source code is available at openems.io.

Distributed electricity storage systems can make a major contribution to the energy transition. However, the currently used modes of operation mostly only offer naive strategies that exclusively consider the momentary situation behind the electricity meter. The aim of the project is to unlock the great potential of storage systems for both the end user and the distribution system operator (DSO) through integrated business models. To this end, innovative charging and discharging algorithms will be developed to optimize the self-use of solar energy and the control of variable loads. "Pooling" of distributed storage flexibility will also enable participation in the energy market. In addition, an open-data platform for anonymized energy data will be created to make it publicly available for research purposes. The basis of the project is the open-source energy management system OpenEMS (www.openems.io), which is being further developed as part of the project.
