Description of programme
"Smart, Green and Integrated Transport"

Within this programme Horizon 2020 will provide funding for a resource efficient transport that respects the environment, aims at a better mobility, less congestion, more safety and security, supports a global leadership for the European transport industry and targets a socio-economic and behavioural research and forward looking activities for policy making.

Title Green Vehicles 2016-2017
Description of call
"Green Vehicles 2016-2017"

The European Green Vehicles Initiative (EGVI) represents an essential component of road transport research and innovation. It includes research, technological developments, innovation and demonstration in support of improvements in energy efficiency of road transport vehicles and the use of new types of non-conventional energies in road transport such as electricity, compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG), renewable and tailored fuels.

 

This call has been defined taking into account the other calls and initiatives where the Transport Challenge is concerned, particularly the calls on ‘Mobility for Growth’ and ‘Smart Cities and Communities’, and the ‘Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2’ joint undertakings. Multisectorial research involving other research and innovation areas such as Energy and Environment coupled with research on new materials, advanced production and Information and Communication Technologies will be encouraged, particularly in fields such as advanced energy storage systems and interfaces between vehicles and energy recharging infrastructures.

 

Specific topics of the call:

 

  • Optimisation of heavy duty vehicles for alternative fuels use
  • System and cost optimised hybridisation and range externders for road vehicles
  • Next generation electric drivetrains focusing on high efficiency and cost
  • Electric vehicle interior redesign specific for optimised efficiency
  • Physical integration of hybrid and electric vehicle batteries at pack level aiming at increased energy density and efficiency
  • Multi-level modelling and testing of xEVs and their components
  • Super-fast and smart charging of electric vehicles
  • Electrified heavy duty vehicles
  • Aerodynamic and flexible trucks
  • Affordable weight reduction of high-volume vehicles and components taking into account the entire life-cycle
  • Demonstrating (pilots) for integration in urban transport system of electrified L-category vehicles
  • Stimulating European research and development for the implementation and development of future road transport technologies

Next generation electric drivetrains for fully electric vehicles, focussing on high efficiency and low cost
Description of call
"Next generation electric drivetrains for fully electric vehicles, focussing on high efficiency and low cost"

Developments have already been undertaken in recent years to optimise drivetrain components for fully electric vehicles (FEVs), in particular in terms of efficient use and recovery of energy. However, the next generation of electric drivetrains should be conceived to also take into account design for manufacturing, low weight and material cost.

Proposals should address one or several of the following aspects:

  • Functional system integration of electric machines (e.g. high speed motors) with transmissions, optimisation of energy recovery with the integration of braking systems.
  • Lower cost electric machines through reduced need for rare earth magnets and designs optimised for lower cost manufacturing processes.
  • Integration of power electronics with battery charging functions together with associated control and of wide bandgap semiconductors providing high temperature, high power density, and high frequency capabilities.
  • Modular electric power train components compatible with both full electric and hybrid applications, sub-systems and topologies with enhanced noise, vibration and heat (NVH), reliability, safety and fault tolerance and robustness, fit for mass manufacturing.
