By 2030, 33 million electrical vehicle owners in Europe will need efficient charging. UMC is creating an on-demand electric vehicle charging service called NIMBEE which will operate in Žilina, Slovakia; Riga, Latvia, and Braunschweig, Germany. Instead of drivers needing to locate a charging station, an autonomous battery-operated charging robot will go to them. Drivers will have access to charging as needed, thus optimising a city’s space and infrastructure. The project will help cities to better plan and streamline deployment of the availability of electrical charging infrastructure such as mobile charging stations and provide valuable on-demand services for electric vehicle owners.
The most valuable output will be an autonomous charging unit and robotic arm (in 2023), and demand-side flexibility.
