WP1 mainly provides the coordination of scientific and administrative activities. Project management, budget allocation, and reporting activities will be all be coordinated as part of this work package. This work package will be led by UMA who has extensive experience in project management.
WP2 will develop high-level requirements and specifications for the proposed project. The WP will also identify existing toolsets and how partner capabilities can be combined to develop the envisioned framework. WP2 will be led by AL who are well experienced in the identification of requirements, use-cases, and test-cases for multidisciplinary projects.
WP3 will be led by UNN and will contribute towards the development of the overall architecture. The WP will explore i. architectural choices and will carry out their comparative evaluation; ii. selection of appropriate tools and models for simulation and emulation of proposed framework; iii. new business models for the proposed architecture in general and specifically EVOLVE’s proposed framework.
WP4 will be led by GU and is geared toward the integration of data streams across the grid, EVs, and charging infrastructure through 5G and beyond connectivity. The WP also focuses on developing new ML capabilities, as well as demand-side management algorithms for the power grid.
WP5 will be led by UOU and is geared towards the development of analytics and real-time monitoring capabilities for EV charging infrastructure. Fusion of data streams generated by LPWAN deployments will also be investigated in this WP.
WP6 will be led by VT and serves as a focal point for the activities of all other WPs. It integrates research outputs into five proof-of-concept demonstrations of the proposed system and additionally tackles implementation-related challenges.
WP7 focuses on dissemination, standardization, and exploitation activities. The following image presents a summary of the WPs and corresponding tasks.
