Welcome to SEEV4-City's webspace! SEEV4-City is an Interreg project co-funded by the North Sea Region Programme 2014 - 2020.

Core mission:

The core of the SEEV4-City project is making a huge step forward in green city development by a smart combination of electric vehicles, renewable energy sources and ICT solutions.





It contains 7 operational, long term pilots in 6 cities in 5 European countries aiming for:
  • An increase in energy autonomy
  • An increase of ultra-low emission kilometres
  • Avoiding extra investments to make existing electrical grids compatible with an increase in electro mobility and local energy production


Latest news:

  • The 11th of January, our project manager Hugo Niesing co-hosted a V2G webinar about "V2X" & "The introduction of new businesses for renewable energy and ultra-low emission mobility services". You can access the webinar recordings here.
