The NeMo project includes 9 work packages (WPs):


WP 1 – Actors’ needs and requirements

WP Leader: ICOOR

Description: WP1 has created a list of relevant electromobility actors and studied their needs and requirements. It has selected the most relevant business scenarios and use cases, based on which the rest of the Work Packages will continue. It has derived the functional and non-functional requirements for the NeMo Hyper-Network, including business and data privacy and security issues as well as requirements relevant to interoperability and regulatory issues. It also monitors the technology and market developments regarding ICT services, CPOs, DSOs, EMPs, OEMs, roaming platforms and current business models, so as to guide and align the project’s developments.

Subtasks (T):
T1.1 Definition of actors and needs per actor
T1.2 Technology and market monitoring
T1.3 Scenarios and Use cases
T1.4 Requirements
T1.5 Interoperability and regulatory requirements


WP 2 –Specifications, Reference Architecture and Functional Design


Description: WP2 has derived the Hyper-Network specifications regarding interfaces, data, services, security and privacy and defined the Hyper-Network Reference Architecture ensuring interoperability of tools and services. The functional design of the Hyper-Network has been derived with emphasis on interoperability, openness, continuous service and access, roaming, security and privacy by design. WP2 also surveys and monitors electro-mobility and smart-grid standards and protocols for the Hyper-Network integration.

Subtasks (T):
T2.1 Hyper-Network Specifications
T2.2 Hyper-Network Reference Architecture
T2.3 Functional Design of NeMo Hyper-Network
T2.4 ICT Standards and protocols for Hyper-Network integration


WP 3 – NeMo Data Management

WP Leader: ICCS

Description: WP3 has designed a Common Information Model  (meta-model)  for  each  object  relevant  to  the business scenarios selected in WP1. Each object is described based on specific attributes. The current version has been communicated to relevant electromobility working groups and will be continuously refined and updated during the project work. WP3 has designed an open European Inter-Roaming protocol, which allows communication between eRoaming platforms, thus allowing the seamless inter-connection of their business partners. The same protocol allows the connection of a NeMo Hyper-Network business partner with the business partners of the connected eRoaming platforms. Finally, this WP designs tools for the translation of data from proprietary protocols of service providers to the Common Information Model and vice versa, and smart algorithms to act as “virtual” sensors, generating data, or for routing.

Subtasks (T):
T3.1 NeMo Data management
T3.2 Data translators
T3.3 Smart processing and data management
T3.4 Design of open European Inter-Roaming protocol
T3.5 Common Information Models

WP4 – NeMo Hyper-Network design and development

WP Leader: IBM

Description: This WP performs the low-level design of the Hyper-Network and develops its core services (Service Delivery and Service Creation domains) as well as interface to the OEM backend for secure connection with the EV. It also implements the virtual pan-European eRoaming framework according to the protocol specified in WP3, by connecting existing eRoaming platforms.

Subtasks (T):
T4.1 Low –level design of Hyper-Network
T4.2 Development of virtual pan-European eRoaming framework
T4.3 “Service delivery” domain
T4.4 “Service Creation” domain
T4.5 Interface to OEM backend


WP5 – Electro mobility actors’ services

WP Leader: Mosaic Factor

Description:  WP5 develops horizontal smart services, namely a service finder, service rating and actors’ monitoring and profiling. These services are designed and developed on top of the NeMo Hyper-Network, to be integrated and add intelligence to other e-mobility services. Moreover, it provides a set of new and existing (adapted) electromobility services related to the electricity grid, to the Electric Vehicle and BMS as well as to the Electric Vehicle users.

Subtasks (T):
T5.1 Hyper-Network horizontal services
T5.2 Grid related services
T5.3 EV driver/owner related services
T5.4 EV and Battery related services


WP6 – Integration and Validation


Description: WP6 focuses on the verification and validation of the NeMo concept and developments. To achieve this, several test sites have been selected to integrate all the project developments: Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Austria. Initially, the Hyper-Network will be deployed in each site and its full operational capabilities will be verified. As different scenarios will be defined for each test site, a specific methodology to evaluate the results will be determined using the same criteria and performance indicators. The on-field testing will be conducted in real conditions in each test site, including a Hakathon for developers, according to the dedicated methodology. The analysis of data collected will allow the validation of the project outcomes according to the requirements and the impact assessment of their market implementation. Finally, a cross-country demonstration event will be organized to demonstrate all the benefits of the NeMo Hyper-Network and of the services developed within this project. This will demonstrated by the same Electric Vehicles travelling across different European countries, seamlessly using electromobility services.

A baseline test drive took place in October 2017, to highlight the issues faced by drivers of electric vehicles in planning and doing long trips.

Subtasks (T):
T6.1 System integration and technical verification
T6.2 Validation methodology and test scenarios
T6.3 Test sites set-up, integration and preparation
T6.4 Tests conduct, validation and impact assessment


WP7 – Deployment, business model, operational and organisational issues

WP Leader: Renault

Description: WP7 proposes the means to provide harmonised and coherent services among all electro mobility actors, and analyses and studies how to integrate this new service concept in a spread-out electro mobility Hyper-Network. For this, it will study novel business models and roll out processes for the new use cases, it will propose a regulatory framework for open service sharing in Europe and will form a Business Alliance for electro mobility from the project start.

Subtasks (T):
T7.1 Global adoption methodology and measures
T7.2 Process and system to ensure quality and service level
T7.3 Actor value, business models and roll-out process of new use cases
T7.4 Regulatory requirements to ensure sustainability of electro mobility Hyper-Network
