IZIVIA IS INVOLVED IN THE AMBITIOUS EUROPEAN EXPERIMENT OSLO2ROME AND IS TRIALLING THE NEW BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY ON ITS CORRI-DOOR NETWORK.

A pioneer in the electric mobility market and an ambassador for interoperability across charging networks for several years, IZIVIA is now keen to take things one step further and anticipate future uses in terms of electric mobility by trialling increasingly innovative solutions, with one ultimate goal: simple, flexible access to charging for all electric vehicle drivers.

It is within this context that IZIVIA is taking part in the European Oslo2Rome project in partnership with EDF’s Research and Development Department, Electricité de Strasbourg, the Germany company MotionWerk as well as a number of European charging operators. The purpose of this initiative is to demonstrate that long-distance and cross-border travel in an electric car can be simplified thanks to the new “blockchain” technology used to help customers pay for charging.

When applied to electric mobility, “blockchain” technology involves a trusted digital third party who, thanks to its open data infrastructure, authenticates and manages financial transactions between service providers and end users. This virtual wallet will mean that drivers of electric vehicles can charge up at any charging point, without having to worry about the service provider and payment methods applied on the network in question.

The Oslo2Rome experiment is designed to demonstrate that a Pan European network based on blockchain technology is possible in the near future. From 27 to 30 November, drivers provided by each partner went on a test drive and crossed borders with their e-mobility wallet.

On this occasion, the 3 electric vehicles provided by the EDF team charged their batteries on the Corri-Door charging point at the Intermarché in Pfastatt provided by IZIVIA for the experiment.

The test was successful! IZIVIA and its 7 partners have taken a big leap forward for simplified, transparent, user-friendly electric mobility!
