On 17th-18th February, MEISTER team celebrated its first Consortium Meeting of the 2020 to discuss the progress of the project.
During Valencia meeting, the features of the developed software prototypes were presented to the partners and the cities, including a Smart Electromobility Dashboard for the city management.
By means of a dedicated workshop, the cities and the partners worked in the definition of the management and financial cases for the business models defined in the project. A list of indicators to assess project impacts and the business models, was reviewed and discussed by the partners.
The EeMEC (European eMobility Expertise Centre) has already been designed detailing the legal personality, and financing options. As a result, Berlin announced that EeMEC platform will be presented within the workshop they are organising with different German cities in April on the topic of best practice in municipal charging infrastructure.
Defining the current status and next steps of piloting and demonstration actions in Berlin, Malaga and Stockholm pilot sites were key issues addressed since the MEISTER tools and business models are being tested there, enabling in all cases the cross-site evaluation of impacts. The three MEISTER pilots will involve 51,500 users, 1,000 electric vehicles and 660 charging points.
