To help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as well as air and noise pollution, the ECOSWAP project is promoting the uptake of e-motorbikes by offering a battery swapping system to existing and new motorbike riders. Instead of having to pay for the cost of the battery, the customer can choose to participate in the scheme to share the motorbike battery. This will reduce the overall vehicle price tag and incentivise sales.
The project will also test the user-friendliness and accessibility of battery swapping stations, specifically their durabilty, optimal number of battery slots and locations. Different business models testing scaling capabilities in urban areas will be tested and validated in three pilots including Barcelona, Spain, in 2022.
