eCoSini is a new research project in the field of electric mobility. The project is a continuum for the earlier successful activities of SIMBe, eSINi and Electric Mobility Roadmap, which have been recognized as stepping-stone projects in the growth of Finnish electric mobility, especially in the development of its business models and value chains. Based on this legacy, eCoSini further deepens this knowledge and also focuses on new areas of interest.
eCoSini is funded by the Finnish electric vehicle programme EVE at Tekes. The project is part of the Smart electric traffic pilot test environment of the capital area. The project started in the beginning of 2014 and will last until June 2016. The project will be carried out together with the National Consumer Research Centre. On the whole there are 15 stakeholders funding and participating the project, including cities, utilities and several firms from small to international companies from the field of electric mobility.
Participants: Smart electric traffic consortium
