  • €895,125

The Micromobility Grid Solutions ,MiGriS, consists of a system of a set of different light electric vehicles (LEVs), a swappable battery system and a battery charging station. Within MiGris, the consortium members test sustainable and efficient urban mobility solutions through integrable battery and vehicle stations, as well as modular and circular battery systems. It combines microgrid charging stations with a set of LEVs, circular and modular swappable batteries, and bidirectional charging capabilities to provide environmentally friendly commerce and transportation options, improve quality of life, and promote social and economic participation. The project is run by the Technical University of Berlin and their commercial partner Constin GmbH. Together with all partners, the Nexus Institute also supports the pilot planning, increasing social acceptance and its market potential. The initial testing of the system will take place in Berlin to ensure operational feasibility, while the pilots with the municipality of Antalya, Turkey and the city of Dugopolje, Split aim to demonstrate scalability and commercial feasibility with different test scenarios and user groups. Additionally, crash courses on battery repair and vehicle maintenance and an artificial reality tool are being developed. Microgrid charging stations with LEV vehicles equipped with the circular and standardised xPack 100 battery systems offer practical urban mobility solutions. The modularity of the batteries increases efficiency, and bidirectional charging allows for vehicle-grid interaction.

Challenge


Existing smart hubs' shipment redistribution delivery and management cause delays. Additionally, storing pre-filled containers becomes challenging since existing micro-hubs are located in valuable residential/commercial space.

Main Objective


MiGriS demonstrates solution scalability, commercial feasibility, and social acceptance analysis, contributing significantly to long-term reductions in carbon emissions, congestion, and air pollution.

Output


MiGriS aims to enhance mobility options for underserved communities, like those in semi-rural and rural regions, by reducing transportation barriers and improving connectivity, enhancing safety.
