On October 24, 2013, the interim results of the EU project e‑DASH - Electricity Demand and Supply Harmonization for EVs which is being supported as part of the 7th Framework Programme has been successfully presented at the Volkswagen Arena in Wolfsburg. In the e-DASH Project, a total of 14 international partners are investigating the implementation of electric vehicle fleets into future European energy grids under the direction of Volkswagen AG.


In the project, the CNI is responsible for the design, evaluation and optimization of a new telematics interface between the electric vehicle and the OEM backend system. This telematics interface is intended to provide valuable information on charging processes in electric vehicles. Aside from an electric vehicle fleet, the provision of balancing energy is to be controlled with the aid of the interface taking into account the requirements of energy grids. For demonstration purposes, a prototype, which had been developed by the CNI, was presented during the 24 months review. This prototype aligns the linkage to such a backend system with standards for charging communication, such as IEC 61851-1 and ISO/IEC 15118.
