Volkswagen delivers 24/7 renewable energy charging solution for electric vehicles

Completed

Energy Web, Volkswagen Group Innovation and Elli developed a new smart charging solution enabling EV owners to charge their vehicles with renewable electricity that is matched directly with the vehicle’s real-time electricity consumption. The solution relies on “24/7” matching algorithm which optimizes charging to maximize the use of clean, locally sourced electricity and provides users with an unprecedented level of control and granularity over EV charging. Through the solution, users can dictate the date and time of charging, the desired level of charge by the end of their session, what and the renewable energy facility the electricity is drawn from. Several VW ID4s were successfully charged with local clean energy consumption, over the span of 3 months.

Traceability platform for Sustainable Aviation Fuel by Shell and Accenture, powered by EW-stack

Completed

Avelia is one of the world’s first blockchain-powered digital sustainable aviation fuel (SAF)* book-and-claim solutions for business travel. The pilot phase of the programme aims to demonstrate the credibility of the book-and-claim model, using Energy Web blockchain technology to ensure secured allocation of SAF’s environmental attributes to companies and airlines after the fuel has been delivered into the fuel network. With Avelia, airlines and business customers could simultaneously reduce emissions in their respective scopes, while ensuring transparency and accountability by avoiding issues such as double-counting. Developed by Shell and Accenture, with the support of the Energy Web Foundation (EWF), Avelia includes Amex GBT’s world-leading travel management services to aggregate global business demand for SAF, which will increase SAF supply and use and help accelerate the aviation industry’s pathway towards net-zero emissions.
