OSLO2ROME-INITIATIVE WAS A COLLABORATION WITH SEVEN STRONG EUROPEAN PARTNERS, ACCESSING A ROAMING CHARGING NETWORK BEYOND EUROPEAN BORDERS VIA THE “E-MOBILITY WALLET”
In the context of the Oslo2Rome initiative, e-mobilists travelled around Europe with the so-called “e-mobility wallet” in order to test for the first time a cross-border charging network based on blockchain technology, aided by the combined efforts of MotionWerk, Fortum, Enexis, Elaad, Sodetrel, VKW, innogy and enviaM.
The Oslo2Rome Tour involved partners crossing borders over six countries across Europe in a collaborative effort. The tour was a success across all parties, with each participating partner successfully charging via the pan-European Blockchain network and arriving at their intended destination. The Oslo2Rome initiative proved that a blockchain implementation could solve the roaming problems for a charging network across Europe.
THE DECENTRAL MOBILITY NETWORK BASED ON BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY OFFERS CLEAR BENEFITS FOR E-DRIVERS AND CPOS
Real-time transactions and settlement without middlemen through blockchain smart contracts.
Access and payment without contracts or roaming through blockchain wallets with Euro-tokens.
Easy and cost-efficient asset integration and operation based on interopeable, decentralized blockchain network.
THE OSLO2ROME TOUR BASED ON BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY
In the context of the Oslo2Rome initiative, e-mobilists are travelling around Europe with the so-called “e-mobility wallet” in order to test a cross-border charging network based on blockchain technology, aided by the combined efforts of MotionWerk, Fortum, Enexis, Elaad, Sodetrel, Vkw, innogy and enviaM.
The Oslo2Rome initiative is running based on the decentral Blockchain technology. During the Oslo2Rome Tour from the 27.11.2017 – 30.11.2017 you can click on the charging stations in the map and thus learn more on the usage of the Blockchain technoloy within the project. Learn about information such as the gasprice, the number of blocks involved as well as the time until the transaction was processed by the Blockchain.
The map shows all the charging transactions by the partners that happen within the Oslo2Rome test network and displays the information for every charging pole. In addition the routes that the drivers will be taking are highlighted in the map.
When clicking on one of the charging stations, a box shows information about the operator of this specific charging point. Furthermore it lists the last transactions that took place at the pole including the duration of the charging transaction, it’s cost, as well as who charged at this charging station.
Besides this information also blockchain specific information regarding the transactions can be looked into. Through the link to etherscan for each transaction withtin the Oslo2Rome network it can transparently be checked on etherscan. Etherscan holds information for each transaction such as the gas price for this specific transaction, the block height, as well as the time stamp for the transaction.
The user (here: e-car driver) wants to use the Share&Charge app to charge at B‘s charging station.
The app sends a “start” command to the Blockchain network.
The „start“ command is added to a new block on the Blockchain. The block is shared between all parties connected with the decentralized Ethereum Blockchain. These parties validate the block and render it as valid.
04. Add block
The block is then added to the Blockchain, creating a transparent and unaltarable record for the charging process.
The charging station listens to all new transactions in the Blockchain and finds its „start“ command.
