The Arctic University in Narvik will play host to a project workshop on e-mobility and charging. The project, Flexible Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (FlexChEV), supported by EU’s ERA-Net program, will host a workshop on the topic.
FlexChEV explores the possibility of using a dedicated energy storage system (ESS) within the charging station (SC) to alleviate grid and market conditions but not compromise the electric vehicles’s (EV) battery charging algorithms or change daily routine of the EV owner.
The project’s mission is to develop a new concept for flexible electric vehicles charging stations using:
o emerging technologies and control methods
o distributed generation systems
The project will highlight issues, findings and applications. Relation to practical industrial work is important. People representing utilities, e-mobility services, transportation companies are particularly welcomed.
More information on FlexChEV can be found here.

How to get there
Unless you reside in the North plane is the best option for travel. People coming from Sweden or travelling via Stockholm might find the train trip to Narvik both entertaining and relaxing. Harstad/Narvik –Evenes airport is served by Norwegian, SAS and Widerøe. Framnes is served by Widerø only, but have connections to Tromsø, Bodø and Evenes.
Combine with outdoor activities
Ample skiing possibilities are available. Narvik can boast superb cross country facilities as well as off-piste/slalom.
