[Download as .pdf]

Lead partner: Gireve

Executive summary:

The Deliverable describes the Actors involved in the electromobility sector, grouped into macro-areas. The Actors have been selected based on their relation with the NeMo Hyper-Network. The interrelations between macro-areas and actors are displayed via UML (Unified Modelling Language) diagrams which describe the behaviour and the structure of a system. Moreover, the Deliverable presents a selection of Business Scenarios that will be tested in five European test sites located in: France, Austria, Germany, Italy and Spain. The identification of the Business Scenarios is the result of the discussion carried out among project participants since the very beginning of NeMo project. The Business Scenarios consist of a set of technologies and services related to the electromobility sector. In order to avoid that the same NeMo tool or technology is tested in different scenarios, a list of standard services was initially identified. Based on the list of standard services, seven main Business Scenarios have been selected. Business Scenarios consist of a high level description of the services that will be tested in the test sites. A more detailed description of the functionalities proposed within each Business Scenario is provided by the Use Cases, which additionally include the description of the requirements. A table matches the requirements from the complete list that are relevant for each use Case. Finally, the Deliverable provides a tentative description and overview of the test sites, including the cross-country pilot.

The Deliverable is considered as the basis for future activities, in particular it represents a first attempt to decide what will be tested in each test site and how the NeMo tools and technologies will look. Based on the requirements, WP2 extracts specifications, describes the solutions to the actors ‘needs and requirements, and defines the Hyper-Network reference architecture.

D1.2 Report on latest technological and market developments in electromobility Public report
[Download as .pdf]

Lead partner: Renault

Executive summary:

With the increase of the Electric Vehicles sales worldwide and particularly in Europe, the ecosystem stakeholders have to monitor the evolution of the market, anticipate the coming trends and evaluate the impact of this new mobility on our environment. This is the goal of this document.

With a strong rise, the electric vehicle market counts in 2016 almost 500.000 new zero emission cars. And several factors, such as new car models coming, the increase in their autonomy, urban restrictions or CO2 standards show us that the EV market has just started.

In order to support this evolution, the actors have to develop and install the needed new charging infrastructures. This is why Europe has set an objective of 120.000 public charging points installed by the end of 2017.

Next to that, the products, cars and charging stations, will evolve in parallel to the coming technologies. One can quote for instance the car connectivity, which permits the car manufacturers to propose new kinds of services to their customers.

Finally, in order to keep a coherence in this market, one can point out the importance of standardization, such as the coming ISO 15-118, which will permit the actors to develop interoperable new services based on the same communication protocol.

D1.3 Interoperability and Regulatory Requirements Public report
[Download as .pdf]

Lead partner: Hubject

Executive summary:

This deliverable presents the results of the work conducted within Task 1.5 of the NeMo project. The aim was to analyse the current regulatory frameworks relevant to electromobility, identify barriers and propose regulatory measures at national and European level, and extract interoperability and regulatory requirements for electromobility in general and specifically for the NeMo Hyper-Network.

The work was based on an analysis of the regulatory frameworks for electromobility on national as well as on international level. Using a structured form, data on the current regulatory frameworks from 31 European countries have been collected. The dynamic development of the electromobility sector has a great impact in the development of the regulatory frameworks, which is reflected in uncoordinated actions from different regulatory bodies and agencies with limited interaction among them. Various barriers to interoperable electromobility services provision have been identified. These are relevant to the electromobility domain per se, but also relevant to the energy and electricity domains, and to the ICT domain. Therewith, high-level interoperability requirements have been extracted, grouped in the following groups:

  • Requirement #1: Interoperability between the regulatory bodies
  • Requirement #2: Interoperability between the regulatory and contractual frameworks
  • Requirement #3: Interoperability between the Business Models of the involved players
  • Requirement #4: Semantic Interoperability

Recommendations have been formulated for each of the above areas, based on the country analysis and based on experts’ discussions. Regulatory requirements for the NeMo Hyper-Network have been outlined. Suggestions for standardisation and regulatory activities have been collected per country and they will be used as input in WP2, to define the proposals for standardisation within Task 2.4 of NeMo.

This Task also includes analyses of the communication protocols and standards. However, in parallel to WP1, an analysis of the standardisation efforts and communication protocol is being performed in Task 2.4, which will result in a list of standards and protocols that need to be considered. In the future, this list will be analysed in detail, specifying the standardisation requirements per NeMo business scenario and per category of electromobility actors.

D1.4 First Updated Report on latest technological and market developments in electromobility Public report
[Download as .pdf]

Lead partner: Renault

Executive Summary

With the increase of the Electric Vehicles sales worldwide, the ecosystem stakeholders have to monitor the evolution of the market, anticipate the coming trends and evaluate the impact of this new mobility on our environment. This is the goal of this report.

This report is an update of a previous deliverable, with the latest figures available regarding EV sales and EVSE (Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment) installed.

With a strong rise, the electric vehicle market counted in Q1 2018 more than 310,000 new zero emission cars (BEV), which is 59% higher than Q1 2017. Several other factors, such as new car models expected to enter the market, the increase in their autonomy, urban restrictions or new CO2 standards show that the EV market has just started.

To support this evolution, the involved actors must develop and install the needed new charging infrastructure. This year, Europe counts more than 130,000 public charging infrastructures installed, which is more than the objective of 120,000 set last year.

Next to that, the products, cars and charging stations, will evolve in parallel to the coming technologies. One can quote for instance the car connectivity, which permits the car manufacturers to propose new kinds of services to their customers.

Finally, in order to keep coherence in this market, one can point out the importance of standardization, such as the coming ISO 15118, which will permit the actors to develop interoperable new services based on the same communication protocol.

D1.5 Second Updated report on latest technological and market developments in electromobility Public report
[Download as .pdf]

Lead partner: Renault

Executive Summary

With the increase of the electric vehicles sales worldwide, the ecosystem stakeholders have to monitor the evolution of the market, anticipate the coming trends and evaluate the impact of this new mobility on our environment. This is the goal of this deliverable.

This document is the second update of the previous deliverable submitted in 2017, the D1.2 “Report on latest technological and market developments in electromobility”, and includes the latest figures available regarding EV sales and EVSEs installed. A first updated report to D1.2, the D1.4 “First updated report on the technological and market developments in electromobility” was submitted one year later in 2018 to report upon the updated developments for the year 2018.

The EV market follows an impressive progression and specifically from H2 2018, an inflexion point seems to appear. In H1 2019, the global BEV sales skyrocket with a growth of 74% in average with 800,000 EVs sold. Other factors, such as new car models expected to enter the market, the increase in their autonomy, battery cost evolution, urban restrictions, new CO2 standards, and country announcements show that the EV market has just started.

In 2018, several new EV designs accept a charging power of 50kW and more. The landscape of EVSEs should change for a more balanced share between the low power (up to or equal to 22KW) and high power (>22kW) charging points. To support this evolution, the involved actors must develop and install the needed new charging infrastructure. In 2019, Europe counts almost 160,000 public charging infrastructures installed.

Based on this impressive growth, this document shows that the NeMo project makes lots of sense by facilitating the development of new services and gathering all the involved actors of the electromobility ecosystem. The facilitation to make business together and develop common standards and methodologies will support the large evolution of the market. The foundation of the Business Alliance for ElectroMobility, a not-for-profit association to exploit the results of the project and manage the Hyper-Network is necessary to allow further innovation and progress as fast as the electromobility market.

Additionally, the products, cars and charging stations, will evolve in parallel to the upcoming technologies. One can quote for instance the car connectivity, which permits the car manufacturers to propose new kinds of services to their customers. In order to keep coherence within this market, standardization is deemed important. Moreover, the V2X technology is being developed, bringing new dimensions to the EV ecosystem. With lots of use cases, the development of this technology will allow reductions to the TCO of the car and will participate to the growth of the EV market. This document emphasizes the complexity of communication protocols and standards that must be tackled before a general adoption, and where NeMo greatly contributes.

 

Work Package 2: Specifications, Reference Architecture and Functional Design
Deliverables from WP2: Specifications, Reference Architecture and Functional Design
Number Title Type and dissemination level
D2.1 Consolidated Version of Technical Specifications for NeMo development and integration Confidential report – Submitted

Lead partner: BroadBit

Executive summary:

This document describes the operation of the NeMo Hyper-Network in details by specifying the dynamic behaviour of the predefined actors of the system based on the business scenarios and use cases elaborated in WP1 of the project. Furthermore, the document points out the first version of main data, which play very important roles in the Hyper-Network. The main data serve the core of the common information, which every participant of the system has to understand.

The high-level dynamic descriptions of the business scenarios are depicted by message sequence charts. Based on these descriptions and drawings, the first version of interfaces are extracted and presented. The interface definitions contain the association of the exchanged main data to subsystems of actors. Such information allows the identification of similarities and patterns among the actors, and the identification of existing conventions, protocols and standards, which may cover fully or partially the required dynamic behaviour.

In addition, the main data and their most important attributes are categorized from privacy point of view. The current data sensitivity classes take into account the context, in which the data have to be handled. Some specifications are defined for the NeMo Hyper-Network as well to ensure privacy related aspects in such complex system, which involves many kinds of actors.

D2.2 Functional Design and Reference Architecture of NeMo Hyper-Network Confidential report – Submitted

Lead partner: IBM

Executive summary:

One of the main goals of NeMo project is the definition and demonstration of the European open EV Services Market. By its open architecture, standardized interfaces and business objects (e.g. identification of charging points and contracts), it will be ensured that all market participants can develop and commercialize their own EV Services utilising the NeMo Hyper-Network. In this way, a competitive approach between different EV Service Providers will be boosted.

The NeMo Hyper-Network will also facilitate the inter-connection of several stakeholders in the eco-system of electromobility.

Before designing and implementing the EV Services Market connected by the NeMo Hyper-Network, a thorough analysis of business requirements and use-cases has been performed in WP1 and documented in deliverable D1.1, which is being used as input to the specification work in WP2.

This deliverable D2.2 is about the reference architecture and the functional design of the NeMo Hyper-Network functional building blocks and their relation and interaction. The reference architecture includes all requirements, including security, safety and privacy concepts and functional building blocks as architectural elements. This deliverable D2.2 is the result of work performed in two tasks:

  1. One task was to allocate all the macro-functions and services of the Hyper-Network, enriched with a semantic layer, to sub-systems, already existing or to be developed in WP4 and WP5. The sub-systems definition was based on the actors’ definitions and use-cases of WP1. This task listed the sub-systems and organised them, by describing the main relationships between them. The main result of this task is a “function” “sub-system” matrix. The macro-functions are defined according to the use cases and requirements of WP1.
  2. Starting from the requirements of WP1, the other task described the basic system functionalities to be provided by the NeMo Hyper-Network as a whole. The work was based on the service-orientation paradigm which is appropriate for large-scale distributed and dynamic systems consisting of loosely-coupled components, and on Cloud Platforms, allowing the fast and cost-competitive creation of innovative ICT services for electromobility.

D2.2 deliverable comprises the list of functions to be implemented as a “Function x Requirement” coverage matrix and a list of sub-systems and relationships between them as a functions allocation “Function x Sub-Systems” allocation matrix.

  • Chapter 1 (Introduction) describes the scope of the Reference Architecture for the NeMo project as part of the EV Services Market. The Reference Architecture will be used as the basis to instantiate (realize) the architecture for the demonstration system used for the demo regions.
  • Chapter 2 (Terms related to EV Service Market) summarizes all terms and definitions used within in the EV Services Market.
  • Chapter 3 (Architecture Overview) provides an architecture overview of the EV Services Market. This chapter describes from a high level all stakeholders involved in electric mobility and the core functional components (Network Nodes) needed from a conceptual point of view.
  • Chapter 4 (System Context) outlines the human and technical actors involved from the EV Services Market point of view being inter-connected by the NeMo Hyper-Network.
  • Chapter 5 (Architectural Elements) outlines the functional building blocks and services required to be implemented based on analysis performed on the requirements and use cases input provided by WP1, deliverable D1.1.
  • Chapter 6 (Security & Privacy Architecture) lists all relevant security topics to be considered when designing and implementing the NeMo Hyper-Network.
  • Chapter 7 (Architecture Decisions) provides a table of important decisions when designing and implementing the NeMo Hyper-Network, like Distributed-Ledger-Technology (DLT).
D2.3 Standards and protocols Public report
[Download as .pdf]

Lead partner: Hubject

Executive Summary

The NeMo Hyper-Network supports the creation of an open, distributed and widely accepted ecosystem for electromobility by enabling increased accessibility to charging infrastructure, ICT services, and wider B2B interconnectivity. This deliverable is a public report on communication protocols and standards for the NeMo Hyper-Network integration and it provides an evaluation of the existing communication protocols and standards that support the Hyper-Network use cases in order to discover whether the particular standards, protocols or a specific combination of both are mandatory to support the deployment of the Hyper-Network. Part of this is to investigate protocols and standards and their relations to specific business scenarios, services, and involved actors/interfaces. Another part was to provide recommendations for supporting project interoperability and standardisation activities. The process included several expert analysis and feedback from NeMo partners.

The key findings include a summary of standards and protocols which are important to be considered by NeMo to support the Hyper-Network and main guidelines for further standardisation activities. The standards and protocols were analysed according to their functions for different services of several business cases.

This work also includes non-communication standards in form of hardware standards regarding the vehicle and electromobility infrastructure, such as safety requirements and testing of the Hyper-Network which are required to be fulfilled by electromobility original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

Work Package 3: NeMo Data Management
Deliverables from WP3: NeMo Data Management
Number Title Type and dissemination level
D3.1 NeMo data translators and DMD smart algorithms Confidential demonstrator – Submitted

Lead partner: SingluarLogic

Executive Summary

The NeMo project has the ambitious goal to establish a Hyper-Network of tools and services for the e-mobility sector that will enable interoperable and seamless service provision across countries and across service providers. Naturally, one of the biggest challenges in such a setting is to guarantee efficient data management in terms of collection, communication among heterogeneous domains and entities, but also security, end-user privacy and business confidentiality. The latter aspects in particular are rather critical, given, on the one hand, the sensitivity of data involved and, on the other, the increasingly strict regulatory framework. As such, they have been fundamentally taken into consideration in what concerns the core mechanisms of data handling and overall access to resources within NeMo.

This deliverable is the output of Tasks 3.1 “Data quality, integrity, safety and privacy”, 3.2 “Data translators” and 3.3 “Smart processing algorithms and data management” of NeMo, and as such consists in essence of three parts.

The first part provides an overview of the main security and privacy aspects that pertain to the NeMo universe and associated principles that must guide the envisaged system’s functionality, ensuring data protection and control of access to involved resources. The starting point are the requirements stemming from the European legislation on data protection, which is becoming increasingly demanding (see, e.g., the GDPR) especially in what concerns the purposes for which data are processed, consent and exercising rights of the data subjects and liability of data processors and controllers, making supporting features a prerequisite in challenging environments like NeMo. Further, a security and privacy analysis is performed under the prism of the specific NeMo communication architecture and security targets, identifying vulnerabilities and prescribing indicative mitigation strategies at the system but also at the data level, based on background project work documented in deliverables D 1.1 “NeMo Use Cases and Actors”, D2.1 “NeMo Hyper-Network Specification”, D2.2 “NeMo Functional Design and Reference Architecture”, D3.3 “NeMo Common Information Model”. In this context, a classification of the NeMo Common Information Model is also introduced as a means to guide data handling according to identified sensitivity levels and visibility preferences. It should be noted, that the above are to be seen as guidelines to be considered throughout the specification and implementation of NeMo, as well as its operational function in the long-run. Finally, a policy-based access and usage control framework is presented, capable of capturing a number of provisions identified in the preceding chapters but also imposing them through suitable authorisation decisions and other enforcement mechanisms. Its practical application is investigated mainly within WP4 as part of the overall authorization approach within NeMo, but also in WP3 as a means to enhance the security and privacy aspects of data translators.

The latter, that constitute the interoperability interface between the actors and the Hyper-Network so as to connect heterogeneous existing or newly-created services, is the focus of the second part of the current document. The corresponding chapter outlines the architecture of a data translator, its interfaces towards the entities it interacts with, according to the architectural concept followed by NeMo, as well as its functional aspects. In that respect, the deliverable specifically describes how the component is configured during the initial registration of a service by defining the mapping between platform-specific data models and the Common Information Model and, on this basis, automatically generating the transformation logic, providing also some insight into its role and interactions with other NeMo components in the context of service invocation; the latter, however, remains to be specified in detail within WP4, and in particular in relation to tasks T4.1 “Low-level design of Hyper-Network”, T4.3 “Service Delivery” and T4.4 “Service Creation”, while also T4.5 “Interface to OEM backend” will be affected as regards the integration of corresponding services into NeMo. Moreover, and as aforementioned, the role of data translators as enforcement points of security and privacy provisions based on principles and mechanisms presented in preceding chapters is also highlighted.

The third and final part of the deliverable elaborates on the two types of algorithms used within NeMo in order to handle the data towards facilitating service requests. The first type represent low level services that will reside in the Hyper-Network backbone and their objective is to generate meta-data in order to fill-in missing information, i.e., due to unavailable or not directly measurable data. Complementary to the vehicle’s physical sensors, the corresponding algorithms are referred to as “virtual sensors”. The second type concern routing algorithms that will collect information and make it available to services based on the data access privileges that will be dynamically updated according to the contractual agreements among the actors subscribed to the Hyper-Network.

D3.2 NeMo open European Inter-Roaming protocol Public demonstrator
[Download as .pdf]

Lead partner: Hubject

Executive summary:

The present document presents the open European Inter-Roaming protocol proposed by NeMo. The Inter-Roaming protocol is a functional protocol for eRoaming platforms to communicate and exchange data between themselves and to expose their data to the Nemo Hyper-Network.

The interfaces served by the Inter-Roaming protocol are the exchange of static and dynamic charge point information, authorisation data and charge detail records.

The Inter-Roaming concept greatly simplifies the inter-connection between actors (CPOs or eMSPs), regardless of their physical connection. An actor needs simply to connect to one eRoaming platform either directly or indirectly, via another platform or via NeMo, and the actor has access to all actors that are connected either to NeMo directly or to all connected eRoaming platforms. Similarly, an eRoaming platform can connect with all other already connected platforms either directly or via NeMo.

The proposed protocol is a functional one, each new eRoaming platform will have to cater for its own technical implementation. The implementation for the two eRoaming platforms that are NeMo partners is presented in this Deliverable. Any new eRoaming platform that wishes to join the NeMo Hyper-Network can follow a similar implementation of the NeMo functional open European Inter-Roaming protocol.

D3.3 NeMo Common Information Models Public demonstrator
[Download as .pdf]

Lead partner: TomTom

Executive summary:

One of the pillars of this Hyper-Network is the possibility to exchange data using a common format. The present document presents the Common Information Models proposed by NeMo for this scope. The vision is that the new services to be built using the Hyper-Network functionalities will generate and exchange data according the proposed Common Information Models, while data translators, to be developed in another NeMo task, will enable the translation of data from other formats to the NeMo Common Information Models.

The work was based on the data flows created within Task 2.1 of the project, to describe the sequence of information between electromobility actors per each of the seven Business Scenarios selected in WP1. Based on this work, the physical entities and the data structures that need modelling have been identified and the needed attributes have been agreed.

This Deliverable proposes models for all identified Business Objects, split in logical categories, as objects relating to the electric vehicle, to the charging infrastructure, to the final customer, to the charge session, to smart charging functionalities, to the market place for service creation and delivery, to grid loads due to the charging of electric vehicles and to the preparation of electric vehicles for drive-off. Supporting Business Objects are also modelled. For each attribute, the following are defined: Name, Definition, number of Instances (1 or n), whether it is a Must or Optional attribute (M/O) and its Format.

The proposed Common Information models will form the basis for the service creation and provision within the NeMo Hyper-Network while components will be proposed to translate data from proprietary formats to the NeMo language. It is envisaged that this common language will promote the interoperability of electromobility services and will enable the better user’s experience. It is expected that during the project developments, some changes will be necessary in the proposals presented in this document. In such cases, the proposed models will be updated accordingly.

Work Package 4: NeMo Hyper-Network design and development
Deliverable from WP4: NeMo Hyper-Network design and development
Number Title Type and dissemination level
D4.1 Functional Prototype of Hyper-Network Confidential demonstrator

Lead partner: IBM

Executive Summary

The NeMo project develops a Hyper-Network of tools and services for an electromobility Marketplace which will enable the creation, trading and interoperable execution of e-mobility services across countries and across service providers.

As an IT system, the NeMo Hyper-Network comprises

  • A collection of NeMo Nodes to which the NeMo Core Components are deployed. These Core Components form the basic infrastructure that allows members of the NeMo consortium to participate in the NeMo Marketplace.
  • A set of NeMo enabled electro-mobility services providing B2B functionality around the operation of electric vehicles. Members of the NeMo consortium can register such services on the NeMo Marketplace so that they can be contracted and consumed by other members of the consortium.
  • Finally, there will be electro-mobility applications that members of the NeMo Consortium offer to their customers in a B2C mode. These B2C applications may recur to NeMo Registered Services, but they are considered neither as NeMo Core Components nor as NeMo Registered Services.

This document describes the IT architecture of the NeMo Hyper-Network and covers:

  • the design of the individual NeMo Nodes and the NeMo Core Components
  • the design of the NeMo network consisting of a set of NeMo Nodes
  • the deployment of NeMo nodes and how they inter-connect in the NeMo Hyper-Network

and it is the basis for the implementation of the NeMo Hyper-Network prototype, which is the main deliverable of Work Package 4.

The design presented here recurs to other NeMo deliverables, in particular to

  • D 1.1 NeMo Use Cases and Actors
  • D 2.1 NeMo Hyper-Network Specification • D 2.2 NeMo Functional Design and Reference Architecture • D 3.1 NeMo Data Translators and DMD Smart Algorithms
  • D 3.3 NeMo Common Information Model

and covers the architecture for components developed in tasks 4.3 ‘Service Delivery’ and 4.4. ‘Service Creation’. As there is a strong relation between the service creation tools and the server-side components ‘Low-Level Service Finder’ and ‘Low-Level Service Optimizer’ a short overview on the latter two components is also covered in this document.

Electro-mobility services are developed primarily in Work Package 5, so they are not described in this deliverable. However, Task 4.2 and Task 4.5 provide such electro-mobility services. Therefore, also the respective designs of contributions from Task 4.2 and 4.5 are described in this document.

Further touchpoints exist with Task 3.1 and Work Package 6 for the design of the security aspects, data translation capabilities and the deployment aspects of NeMo, respectively.

Work Package 5: Electromobility actors’ services
Deliverables from WP5: Electromobility actors’ services
Number Title Type and dissemination level
D5.1 NeMo Hyper-Network horizontal services Confidential demonstrator

Lead partner: Mosaic Factor

Executive Summary

The NeMo Hyper-Network is a distributed environment with open architecture based on standardized interfaces, in which all electromobility actors (i.e. charge points, electric vehicles and their owners, charge point operators, electromobility service providers, energy actors, etc.), can connect and interact seamlessly, in order to exchange data and to provide more elaborate electromobility ICT services in a fully integrated and interoperable way, for both B2B and B2C transactions. NeMo is not a proprietary platform for electromobility services, but an eco-system fully open to all actors and services providers, allowing the continuous and uninterrupted provision of data and services.

In this framework, the NeMo Hyper-Network includes a set of horizontal smart services developed to provide new added-on functionality usable in the whole environment. They differentiate from the NeMo core services by the fact that they are not part of the Hyper-Network but have been designed and developed on top of it. Their aim is to take advantage of capabilities of the NeMo Hyper-Network for providing a new set of functionalities to be used by the different actors according to their interests. The horizontal smart services are available to be integrated and add intelligence to other electromobility services. Their specific functionalities can be used by different kinds of actors both by end users, like electric vehicle drivers, and by NeMo business partners, like IT service developers.

This document presents the prototype horizontal services developed and documents their functionalities. These services are the following:

  • Service Brokerage
  • EV driver monitoring and profiling
  • CPO monitoring and profiling
  • Application level finder
  • Rating/pricing services

For each service 4 main content sections are presented:

  • Description of the service: listing key functionalities, input and output data and associated use cases of the NeMo deliverable D1.1
  • Implementation details: containing technical information and diagrams describing how the service has been developed
  • Usage: describing how the functionalities of the service can be accessed
  • Potential end user applications: describing with a functional view the main benefits for the end users that can be enabled by new services developed based on the specific service.

The aim is to clarify what the services do, how they have been developed and how to use them.

D5.2 NeMo electromobility actors’ services Confidential demonstrator

Lead partner: TomTom

Executive Summary

The NeMo project has developed a Hyper-Network of tools and services for an electromobility marketplace which enables the creation, trading and execution of interoperable electromobility services across countries and across service providers.

As an IT system, the NeMo Hyper-Network comprises of:

  • A collection of NeMo Nodes to which the NeMo Core Components are deployed. These Core Components form the basic infrastructure that allows service providers to participate in the NeMo Marketplace.
  • A set of NeMo-enabled electromobility services providing B2B functionality around the operation of electric vehicles. Service providers can register such services on the NeMo Marketplace so that they can be contracted and consumed by other service providers.
  • Finally, there will be electromobility applications that service providers can offer to their customers in a B2C mode. These B2C applications may recur to NeMo Registered Services, but they are considered neither as NeMo Core Components nor as NeMo Registered Services.

It is one of the key objectives of the NeMo project to provide a set of new and existing (adapted) electromobility services, offered through the NeMo Hyper-Network. These services include: Grid related services, EV driver/owner related services and EV and battery related services. This document describes the services that have been developed and have been integrated into the NeMo Hyper-Network. The grid related services include navigation to charge points taking into account user needs and restrictions by the electricity network, load management, that shapes vehicle demand according to driver preferences and grid constraints, and load forecasting due to EV charging. The EV driver/owner related services include smart navigation and smart journey planner services and a wireless authentication service. The EV and battery related services include a service defining an optimal SoC level of an EV battery being applied before leaving a charging station, a remote BMS parameterisation service, a thermal battery pre-conditioning service, an improved SOC estimation service and a battery capacity calculation service.

These services were developed to showcase the usefulness of NeMo to quickly deploy services and reach a broad audience of drivers, infrastructure operators, policy makers, etc. Furthermore, these services are composable in nature, allowing third parties to extend them and further develop them into novel services with different business models.

Work Package 6: Integration and Validation
Deliverables from WP6: Integration and Validation
Number Title Type and dissemination level
D6.1 Verification methodology and results related to the Hyper-Network deployment Confidential report

Lead partner: IBM

Executive Summary

This deliverable summarizes the main activities and results accomplished in Task 6.1 “System integration and technical verification” of the NeMo project and addresses the following areas of activity within the task:

  • The installation and configuration of the NeMo Nodes and the NeMo Hyper-Network as a whole.
  • The integration of all NeMo components forming the NeMo Marketplace and the execution environment for composite NeMo electromobility services plus the infrastructure for service-to-service invocations within the NeMo Hyper-Network.
  • The verification of the proper functioning of the NeMo Hyper-Network.

A second major topic of Task 6.1 was the implementation of a test suite for validating wireless vehicle-to-charge point transactions according to the ISO/IEC 15118-2, ISO/IEC 15118-4 and ISO/IEC 15118-8 specifications. This activity addressed the following subtasks:

  • The formalization of TTCN-3 based test scenarios so that a respective test tool can be developed.
  • The implementation of a TTCN-3 based Validation and Verification (V&V) test tool. The goal of the V&V test tool is to validate the Wireless Authentication Solution (WAS) implementation done in WP5. In fact, it is a conformance test, which verifies that the implementation conforms to ISO/IEC 15118-2.
  • The validation of the defined test scenarios using the test suite developed.

For these two main areas of activity in Task 6.1, the following key objectives and results have been met and obtained, respectively:

  • Provide an initial NeMo Hyper-Network comprising of seven NeMo Nodes which will be used by the NeMo test sites.
  • Validate the technical procedures reflecting NeMo Hyper-Network governance activities like initiating the NeMo Hyper-Network, adding new network nodes (when new business partners join NeMo) and removing existing network nodes (business partners leave from NeMo). This is the foundation for the technical infrastructure of a future Business Alliance for Electro Mobility as designed in NeMo Work Package 7 ‘Deployment, business model, operational and organizational issues’.
  • Validate the conformance of the Wireless Authentication Solution (WAS) developed in WP5 in regard to ISO/IEC 15118-2. This ensures the compatibility with other actors (e.g. OEMs and CPOs) using ISO/IEC 15118 based implementations. Furthermore, this activity will support the future standardization of both the WAS and its testing.
D6.2 Validation methodology, test sites setup and adaptation activities Confidential report

Lead partner: IDIADA

Executive Summary

NeMo has developed a Hyper-Network of tools and services, to enable the interoperable and seamless electromobility service provision across countries and across service providers. It entails a marketplace for electromobility actors that allows for trading and executing electromobility related IT services in a business-to-business setting. The project has developed a set of horizontal smart services and a set of new and existing (adapted) electromobility services, to validate the NeMo added-value.

The aim of the work presented in this Deliverable was to determine the methodology to validate the project results. Activities include testing activities in the project test sites in Italy, Austria, Germany, France and Spain addressing end users of the services, and training events and a Hackathon addressing service developers to demonstrate the effectiveness of the Hyper-Network open tools for service creation. KPIs have been defined for the overall project and for each test site in order to evaluate the impacts of the NeMo Hyper-Network. The developers’ perceptions and opinions and the final users’ experiences and opinions will be collected via structured questionnaires.

The project has prioritised business scenarios that have been covered by the NeMo Hyper-Network. These business scenarios will be tested in the five project test sites located in France, Austria, Germany, Italy and Spain. Each test site has specific characteristics and has unique needs in terms of electromobility, which make them complementary. Based on these specificities, test scenarios have been selected to demonstrate the benefits of the NeMo Hyper-Network in each site.

All activities for the preparation of each site are described in this document, as regards preparation of charging infrastructure, backend connectivity, electric vehicles, etc. In addition to activities in each site, a cross-country test drive has been organized to demonstrate the impact of NeMo on the long trip travelling experience of EV drivers and the pan-European eRoaming capabilities offered by NeMo.

The data collected during all the testing activities will be analysed to estimate the NeMo impact on the usability and acceptance of the Hyper-Network as well as on the acceptance of electromobility in general.

Lead partner: ICOOR

Executive Summary

This deliverable presents the results of the validation activities related to the NeMo outputs. The validation methodology had a two-fold aim, i) to validate the usability of the core Hyper-Network functionalities (i.e. service creation, registration and execution) by service developers and providers and their acceptance and willingness to use them in the future and ii) to validate the electromobility actors’ perceptions, opinions and overall acceptance as regards the added value of NeMo compared to stand-alone services. Finally, the drivers’ perceptions were studied as regards the smart itinerary planning and the pan-European eRoaming offered via the NeMo Hyper-Network.

The Hyper-Network was perceived by service developers as very useful to create added-value electromobility services and to collect existing services and data in a single environment, interoperable and accessible by all connected actors. In the future, the operators of the Hyper-Network should create instructions and guidelines to facilitate its learning and use.

Overall, the NeMo services validated in the test sites were positively evaluated by electromobility actors and several comments have been provided to further improve them.

The cross-country drive, on the other hand, has demonstrated that range anxiety still remains an issue for EV drivers today, and there is a clear need for electromobility services provision for long distance travels. Indeed, drivers were much less anxious when planning to charge at a charging station that was interconnected via NeMo, and this is an indicator about NeMo’s impact on drivers’ experience as well as EVs market acceptance.

In conclusion, the results of the validation activities in NeMo are encouraging about its future. Electromobility actors and EV drivers were satisfied with the Hyper-Network functionalities and there is an interest by stakeholders to continue the work in this direction and establish an association that will manage the operation of the Hyper-Network after the project end.

[Download as .pdf]

Lead partner: ICOOR

Executive Summary

This deliverable proposes a global adoption methodology that allows service providers to evaluate the quality of data and service in the NeMo Hyper-Network and a strategy to attract new actors in it. Furthermore, the deliverable identifies a set of indicators for self-certification and proposes a business model for an external certifier to ensure quality of data and services.

The first part of the deliverable is dedicated to the analysis of the existing literature on data and service quality with the aim to understand how data quality indicators are classified and how quality of services is measured. Based on the analysis of existing studies, several dimensions and characteristics of data and service quality have been selected based on their relevance to the NeMo services. The second part of the deliverable is dedicated to the identification of existing services similar to NeMo. In this way, it is possible to identify potential actors who could be interested to be part of the NeMo Business Alliance for Electro-Mobility (BAEM).

The second part of the deliverable is dedicated to the description of the data deployed by each NeMo service and to the definition of the requirements to ensure that service and data quality are provided. Each service is initially described in terms of type of data needed, type of service and information provided. Based on the high-level description of NeMo services, a set of indicators to measure the NeMo services’ quality level are described by also considering the possibility to carry out the evaluation in the context of the validation activities carried out in the project. After identifying the data and quality standards for each NeMo service, the deliverable proposed methodologies for self-certification of services by service providers. Finally, the last part of the document defines a business model framework to ensure that quality levels are maintained in the Hyper-Network during and after the execution of the project and presents a process to attract new Actors in the Hyper-Network.

Lead partner: Renault

Executive Summary

This deliverable is the outcome of the work under Tasks 7.3 and 7.4 of NeMo, and presents the value sharing model among the actors and key partners joining the NeMo Hyper-Network, building a sustainable business model for the Hyper-Network that can last beyond the project lifetime. Regulatory and business requirements that will ensure that the Hyper-Network continues to be fully operational under the European electromobility ecosystem in a sustainable way is also presented at the last chapter of the document.

In the present deliverable, the Business Model Canvas approach was used to define the value proposition of the Business Alliance for Electro-Mobility (BAEM), a subscription based association to be formed by the first group of key actors, responsible to develop and engage the relations with the Hyper-Network partners, to manage and be the legal entity ensuring full exploitation of the NeMo Hyper-Network and its services permitting the sustainability of the network. The business model includes identification of the key actors, the main resources, the revenues streams that are analysed in depth. A proposition of the first years’ financial plan of the association and a marketing plan are also proposed.

Requirements are also being proposed for building the necessary regulatory and business framework for the Hyper-Network’s sustainable and interoperable operation within the EU. A business solution is being proposed for a Connection Service Agreement between charging network operators and mobility service providers that would support their business inter-connection.

The NeMo Business Alliance for Electromobility will need to meet the dynamic market trends and regulation changes and take action over the needed regulatory and business tasks mentioned in this deliverable, establishing standardizations update processes, enabling commercial framework for Inter-roaming and service provision, and participating in policy recommendations.

Lead partner: ERTICO

Executive Summary

This deliverable describes Task 7.5 of NeMo, which is to build a group of actors to create a self-sustaining business model for NeMo that can last beyond the project lifetime. It is confidential within the NeMo consortium and to the European Commission. It is the first stage of Task 7.5, which continued in conjunction with other WP7 tasks (Deployment, Business Model, Operational and Organisational Issues) for the rest of the project timescale, to build a solid future for the Hyper-Network and associated services after the project end.

This task worked to propose a Business Alliance for Electro-Mobility (BAEM), comprising NeMo partners and other actors, which will be a legal entity ensuring full exploitation of the NeMo Hyper-Network and services.  This deliverable identifies first roles in the Hyper-Network, including those during the remainder of the NeMo project lifetime and the future BAEM after the NeMo contract end. It proposes a strategy for external actors to join and their rights, and proposes a first structure for the BAEM.

The NeMo Hyper-Network is a distributed structure composed of different NeMo nodes, each one installed by (and under the responsibility of) a NeMo business partner. NeMo intends to grow this network by establishing new NeMo business partners outside the consortium (NeMo Associated Partners).

Different NeMo (Business) Partner roles are foreseen in the BAEM, each with rights, duties, costs and a revenue stream. In addition, there will be respective technical roles for role-based and fine grained access control. The main roles include Governance, Service Provider, Service Consumer, Service Certifier, Regulator, and NeMo IT provider. The expected role and relationship (if any) in the BAEM or the Hyper-Network of all the stakeholder types (macro areas) identified in Deliverable 1.1 of NeMo is described. Finally, the process of on-boarding new associated partners and potential BAEM members is provided, in which there will be a prospection phase, a technical and business presentation, then enrolment. A Memorandum of Understanding and Non-Disclosure Agreement for new business partners is provided in the Annex. These are also available on the page https://nemo-emobility.eu/nemo-forum/

Lead partner: ERTICO. Note that D8.3 has now superseded D8.1.

Executive summary:

The NeMo Communication Strategy and Plan describes the project’s overall communication strategy; identifies the target audiences to the project; provides key messages at project and target group-specific levels, and presents the internal and external communication channels and tactics that will be used throughout the project. It explains the dissemination strategy of the project, presenting the contribution and cooperation expected from the partners. It provides a strategy for the Stakeholder Forum and the liaison activities. The NeMo dissemination strategy also presents an overview of events in which the NeMo project will be represented. The project has identified a clear set of KPIs against which the performance of the communication and dissemination strategy will be evaluated.

This deliverable is complementary to D8.2/D8.4/D8.7 NeMo Communication Tools, which presents the project brand, style, templates, news media, website and social media.

It is a living document and will be updated once year in December, following the annual review. In its updates, due in Months 15 and 27 of the project, the Communication Strategy and Plan will include a list of activities of the NeMo consortium took part in and report on the efficiency of the different communication channels along a set of pre-defined KPI targets.

It covers the key audiences for dissemination, which are public authorities and policy makers, research institutes and universities, industry, EV manufacturers, electro mobility service providers (EMPs), technology and software developers, distribution system and charge point operators (DSOs and CPOs), end users (drivers/owners, fleet operators and logistic companies), and standardisation bodies.

The key messages are the creation of a Hyper-Network of new and existing tools, models and services which will provide seamless interoperability of electro mobility services among all relevant actors throughout Europe, which will help make electro mobility more attractive and facilitate mass adoption. Making backend date and services accessible to the right actors and bringing down barriers across the entire energy management cycle of electro mobility is a key aim, in order to facilitate increased service availability, better planning and more secure electric grid operation.

NeMo will liaise with stakeholders via the proposed Stakeholder Forum, ensuring that NeMo reaches out to the right actors and produces useful outputs. This will take the form of a mailing list, social media accounts, webinars and physical meetings (annual stakeholder conference). The project will also develop liaison activities in the area of policy, EU-funded projects, EU-funded projects, organisations, platforms, and standardisation bodies. Specific attention will be given to established groups, such as the eMI3 (electro mobility ICT Interoperability Innovation) group, HyER (Hydrogen Fuel Cells and electro mobility in European Regions), EURELECTRIC, as well as standardisation groups relevant to electro mobility. Information will additionally be shared with related H2020 projects.

Communication tools (more fully described in Deliverable D8.2) will ensure a coherent, wide and timely communication of the NeMo concept, objectives and solutions to multiple audiences and the public. These include the project website (www.nemo-emobility.eu), Twitter and LinkedIn accounts, websites and social media of project partners, posters, brochure, videos and webinars. The content will include news and magazine articles, press releases, events (both NeMo event and participation in external events such as congresses), technical and scientific papers.
