iZEUS – Smart Grid and Smart Traffic Services for Electric Mobility

Partners of research and industry have joined the intelligent Zero Emission Urban System – iZEUS - project with a view to enhance research, development, and practical demonstration in the fields of smart traffic and smart grid. The project is being funded with about EUR 20 million by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology under the initiative Information and Communication Technologies for Electric Mobility II. The project was launched in January 2012 and will be completed in mid-2014. It directly succeeds the successfully completed electric mobility project MeRegioMobil.

Work at KIT focuses on two main activities: Further development of the Energy Smart Home Lab and support of the fleet test.
