Smart Solar Charging one of five innovative best practices of European sustainable policy

Smart Solar Charging was selected as one of five most innovative best practices in Europe of sustainable policy according to the Regiostars Awards organized by the European Commission. Smart Solar Charging is a bidirectional charging system for electric cars where car batteries can either charge or deliver energy back to the electricity grid. This way sustainable energy can be used when there is a high demand for energy in the local district. Starting from the Utrecht Region in The Netherlands, Smart Solar Charging develops and expands this sustainable energy system of tomorrow.

Regiostars Awards

Each year the European Commission honours projects that deliver exceptional achievements and novel approaches in regional development with the Regiostars Awards. This year, the Directorate General of Regional and Urban Policy of the European Commission selected 25 finalists in five categories from 206 submissions. Smart Solar Charging competed with four other projects in the category Industrial Transition for a Smart Europe. The film Smart Solar Charging: sustainable energy system of tomorrow shows how this unique project is developed and scaled up in the Utrecht Region in The Netherlands.
