Me2| past projects

The project me² represents a new market place for urban actors in which a local community of electric vehicle (EV) users and local smart meter (SM) owners are brought together through means of a local urban online community. The combination of these technologies in a community allows to integrate mobility with electricity, to balance the grid, to reduce electricity costs, and to enable a feeling of local belonging. me2 enables urban demand-side management, i.e. aims to modify consumer demand for energy such as using less energy during peak hours in an urban community. The project is validated and optimized in two pilots in urban communities in Amsterdam and Lisbon.

The project was created due to the high consumption of energy produced from non-renewable sources, not enough grid capacity and the high demand of electricity in the peak hours.

The project ended in May 2018 and the Digital+Sustainable Innovation Lab contributed on business models, policy-strategy interplay and consumer behavior in the fields of mobility and energy.
