BienVEnu: what future for electric mobility?

Mar 27, 2019

On March 26, 2018, the BienVEnu project was celebrating its achievements at the closing event , three years after the project’s launch. Coordinated by Enedis, BienVEnu was an experimental programme led by 8 partner companies: CentraleSupélec, Clem', Enedis, G2Mobility, Nexans, Park'N Plug, Tetragora and Trialog. Its goals included:

  • Addressing the challenges of the energy transition and facilitate the implementation, 
  • Working towards an energy "shift" that respects the environment and is capable of addressing the challenges of emerging technologies and new "intelligent" uses,
  • Responding to the problem of recharging in collective housing and meeting the needs of tomorrow's users, and finally
  • Actively participating in the electric mobility roll-out.

What takeaways?

BienVEnu was both a showcase and the real-life implementation. On the one hand, the project provided a viable and affordable commercial offer for an operational eco-mobility service, and at the same time it was meeting technical, economic, environmental and social challenges.
And the results of this experiment are highly positive: 

  • 10 buildings equipped with 84 charging stations (including 16 dedicated to car-sharing), 
  • a commercial offer adapted to use cases, 
  • positive feedback regarding innovations, with key word: "scalability".  

As concluded Chloé Pfeiffer, Regional Director of Enedis Paris: "The strength of this project was to offer innovative solutions adapted to each use case".

Nexans' role

For Nexans, this project represents half of the installed base of terminals and the implementation of an innovative cabling system. A cable (NEOBUS™) and connectors (NEOCLICK®) specifically designed for the distribution of energy for electric vehicles charging infrastructures (EVCI) in indoor parkings, allowing the distribution of energy in "arteries" connecting the terminals as they are deployed. Unanimously recognized by the profession as a facilitator of the rollout of electric mobility in buildings, the NEOBUS system™ is a key element of Nexans' EVCI solutions, which extends to the supervision of charging points.
