What we do in the project

Agire will continue to improve the VPS installed during the Alpenergy project in Suzzara, supporting the Province of Mantova. The VPS will be completed integrating the local sustainable mobility, considering it both as user and storage, and of course the benefits of the service itself.

The possible applications that will be analized are:

  • EV (cars, scooters and bikes) charching stations connected to the VPS and managed in order to respect the VPS energy forecast.
  • Biogas service station for connected to the VPS to increase the options for control, regulation and storage.
  • New smart services for the sustainable mobility implemented by Euroimpresa.

The most feasible application will be implemented and connected to the existing VPS. The result could be a model for many new applications in the public lighting management project under development by the Agire partner TEA.
