CARDHIN – Dinamic Inductive and Hydrogen Charging of electric vehicles based on renewable sources

Misiones Ciencia e Innovación CDTI Project- MIG-20201042

 The objective of the project is to research and develop an Inductive Dynamic Charging System on the road, which allows the recharging on the move of vehicles, particularly heavy vehicles.

CARDHIN is fully aligned with the "Smart and Sustainable Mobility" mission. In particular, CARDHIN will focus on electro-mobility through the development of charging systems and infrastructures embedded in the road, which will allow on-the-go charging of electric vehicles, thus promoting viable and feasible mobility models for users that contribute to the reduction of vehicle emissions through the mass deployment of electric vehicles, mainly in long distance transport vehicles, both for passengers and goods, but with the expectation that this same technology can be extended to all types of vehicles that need to travel many kilometers without time or opportunity for static recharging, in peri-urban and urban environments.

The project also studies the energy support that H2 obtained directly from renewable sources can provide in the road environment, which will reduce the future environmental impact of electrifying all highways and freeways.

The project aims to generate knowledge and place Spain at the forefront of these technologies, developing a holistic vision that considers the totality of the required infrastructures, the costs of their total life, the recyclability of their components, the impacts of all types and the resilience of the solution.

SICE participates in the project leading the research on energy management systems for electric vehicles and aims to consolidate its position in a strategic sector for SICE such as mobility in the field of Smart Cities, contributing to meet the objectives set by the EU Green Deal, which are in line with the new climate change law that includes the gradual decarbonization of transport until 2050, pursuing the concept of zero emissions.
