Eesti Energia will be participating in a major Europe-wide electric
car project aiming to develop user-centric and innovative next-generation charging
solutions. The project will begin in 2020 under the leadership of Renault and will end at
the end of 2023. The budget of the development project is EUR 19 million, of which the
European Union will cover EUR 15 million. The project will have 33 partners across Europe
(France, Netherlands, Italy, Estonia, Germany, etc.). Funded by Horizon 2020, the project
aims to test and identify the best possible charging solutions for electric cars.
During the project, Eesti Energia will install ultra-rapid chargers
for electric cars in the vicinity of Tallinn, with the capacity to stabilize the power
network. Eesti Energia will be developing charging solutions for private and commercial
users of electric cars to provide simple, convenient and useful charging services that will
also support the highest possible quality of electrical connection anywhere in the network.
The project has received funding from the European Union
's Research and Innovation Program, Horizon 2020, under Grant Agreement 875683.
