Description : The holistic EV-CHAIN solution will play a central role in all the transactions taking place in the electric vehicles charging stations, aiming mainly at personalizing and automating the process. The development of the central EV-CHAIN platform using Blockchain technology, and the complementary P2P application “EV-CHAIN Wallet” aims at facilitating the process for both the end users and the charging station operators. The charging station operators will be able to register to the platform and determine the debit method, while the end users will be able to choose from a map a charging station according to their preferences and secure their payment.
The optimal charging points will be brought forward according to the analysis of the passages along with proposals with the optimal charging stations in buildings located alongside the highway. The simulation, evaluation and finalization of the proposed technological solution EV-CHAIN in highways and urban centers will take place with the involvement of Egnatia Odos SA. and the Public Power Corporation. Development of new business models, based on a sharing economy for promoting the usage of electric vehicles.
