On the 10th– 11st of April, the third partner meeting of the OSCD project was hosted by Driivz in Hod Hasharon, Israel. The OSCD project was a year on its way so it was the perfect moment to discuss the in between results.
The third meeting’s goal was to present each other’s work and to plan the steps ahead. Various deliverables have been finalised. For example, the University of Delft presented the state-of-the-art of smart charging and ElaadNL the protocol assessment report, the preferred architectural report and the DSO services report. Variable capacity is the proposed flexibility method for of this project. EBG elaborated on the development of the interface for the charging station and Driivz presented their system update to support large scale energy control via smart charging.
Driivz showed the OSCD project partners their back-end system. It was an impressive to see how they manage the back-end systems of charging stations and how they can communicate with the charging stations. Furthermore, the Israeli Innovation Authority presented their policies on Cleantech Innovation and how they stimulate it and explained how OSCD perfectly fits within this framework.
The positive collaborative atmosphere was still very much present amongst all the partners. Driivz showed the other partners their hospitality and appeared to be impressive tour guides when they showed us the old city of Jaffa and Jerusalem.
