To make HIT the main and integrated Research Pole in the fields of Transport, Sustainable Mobility and Tourism in Greece and among the top 10 relevant nodes of technology and expertise in Europe.

Acronym: ECOSWAP 

Project Title: Swappable battery ecosystems to accelerate fast-charging and sustainable e-mobility

Duration: 12 months (01/01/2022 – 31/12/2023)


Description & Objectives:

E-motorbikes have emerged as agile, easy to park and sustainable means of transport in cities. Nevertheless, their higher price and lack of fast charging compared to ICE motorbikes, continuously pose large barriers that still need to be overcome. ECOSWAP aims to foster the adoption of e-motorbikes through the deployment of a battery swapping ecosystem which enables new commercialisation models. These models remove the cost of the battery from the purchase and offer to the customer a convenient battery swapping service, with enough capillarity. The interoperability for different brands, the use of the infrastructure by motosharing companies, the recyclability of the ecosystem and the involvement of third parties as scalability enabler and economic opportunity for small local commerce will be developed. The project will test and validate different business models in three pilots: Barcelona in 2022 and Sant Boi (Metropolitan Area of Barcelona) and Verona in 2023. The project is co-funded by EIT Urban Mobility.


HIT key role and responsibilities: CERTH/HIT will have a role of project observer.
