Integrated mobility service launched in Rome as part of sustainability plan

The charging infrastructure from Siemens provides the basis for a new electric vehicle sharing service in Rome developed by Italian start-up On.

To help support Rome’s transition to cleaner and better urban transport, the Italian capital is implementing a Sustainable Urban Mobility plan.

 

The goal is to promote accessibility for all and increase quality of life, as well as public health and environmental sustainability. An important component of realising this goal for the city is installing shared mobility services.

 

Charging infrastructure

 

To facilitate this, Siemens Smart Infrastructure is delivering the charging infrastructure for the project as well as cloud-based software for charger management to Italian start-up On.

 

The solutions provide the basis for a new electric vehicle sharing service in Rome developed by On. The first 23 charging stations have already been installed in the city centre; the rest will follow during the year.

 

“We are convinced that with our new zero-emission mobility project, which we just started with Siemens, we can make a meaningful contribution to Rome’s future plans,” said Alessandro Di Meo, managing director at On.

 

“With this new sharing service, citizens and visitors can experience an integrated mobility environment that enables the sharing use of e-bikes, e-scooters and e-cars.” Our goal is to transform the mobility of the Italian capital with an innovative, efficient and sustainable approach.”

 

In total, Siemens is providing 120 compact Sicharge AC22 charging stations. At these stations, two electric vehicles can be charged simultaneously via two outlets with a capacity of 22 kW. At two 230 Volt AC power sockets also e-bikes, electric scooter and other new small e-vehicles can be recharged.

“With this new sharing service, citizens and visitors can experience an integrated mobility environment that enables the sharing use of e-bikes, e-scooters and e-cars”

The stations are connected to E-Car Operating Center (E-Car OC), Siemens’ cloud-based charging infrastructure software. Via E-Car OC the charging infrastructure as well as charging events can be managed. It also allows the export of processed data to adjacent systems for use in further processes, like billing.

 

This data is used by the On app to show users where all Siemens’ charging points are located on a map, as well as their availability and operational status in real-time. The drivers can start the charging process and access related payment services on the smartphone app that is provided along with the web-based backend software.

 

“Switching to electric vehicles is only one part of the transformation to future urban mobility," added Jean-Christoph Heyne, head of future grids at Siemens Smart Infrastructure.

 

“It is also about providing flexibility and availability, for example by sharing e-cars or other alternative means of transportation, such as e-bikes. A connected charging infrastructure, comprising hardware and software, creates the basis for such services.”
