It feels great to be able to combine our interest for cars with our project. This time we had the opportunity to have the Volvo XC40 Twin engine to test drive and charge. We have used the newly integrated charger that will ensure that the cars battery is charged during none peak hours. #optimization #salusfin #evcharging #iot #go-e #mySMARTLife #horizon2020 #helsinki
As part of the Horizon2020 project where we work on EV charging, we got the opportunity to test-drive the new ID.3 1ST from Volkswagen.
ID.3 runs smoothly through the city, and the range is an impressive 425km (wltp), – which is enough even for getting to the more long-distance places, before it is time to re-charge.
In order to save money I will re-charge the battery, using charging optimization provided by Salusfin. Here we are testing the charger by go-e.
Thanks for letting me take this opportunity to test drive the new EV from Volkswagen in the beautiful warm autumn weather!

Cities globally produce 70% of all greenhouse gas emissions. Helsinki is taking great steps with its people and businesses to make the city carbon neutral.
This goal is supported by the mySMARTLife project, which includes an experiment with autonomous electric bus and encourages and provides advice to housing associations in Merihaka to become more energy efficient.
The project is implemented by City of Helsinki, Helen Oy, Forum Virium Helsinki Oy, Metropolia Polytechnic, VTT Technical Research Center and Fourdeg Oy and Salusfin Oy. The European Commission has granted a € 18 million funding for a joint project in 2017-2022. The budget for the Helsinki measures is € 5.6 million. The project also includes the cities of Hamburg and Nantes.
Salusfin proudly presents the agreement with E.ON. The Agreement covers licencing, localization service, development and services. Agreement between the parties was signed in September 2016 and parties agreed to publish the co-operation in March 2017.
The service is currently being piloted in Romania.
