Nokia Siemens Networks announced that the company has joined the Smart Wheels project consortium working toward boosting electric mobility in Germany. The company will contribute its expertise in roaming to support field trials in the Aachen region. It will enable convenient recharging of electric vehicles at multiple locations, irrespective of the electricity grid service provider.

The Smart Wheels project is one of the seven ‘ICT for Electric Mobility’ model projects funded by Germany’s Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi). The project is focused on integrating electric vehicles into smart grids and public utility infrastructure to be able to offer new sources of energy and balance potential load fluctuations. “Nokia Siemens Networks extends the activities within our consortium and we can now include systems that are roaming ready,” said Peter Wolters, head of the Smart Wheels project consortium. “We appreciate Nokia Siemens Networks’ participation that enriches the project.”

“With large similarities between telecom networks and energy infrastructure, we are committed to using our technology to help develop smart energy solutions,” said Lydia Sommer, country director, Nokia Siemens Networks Germany. “Just like subscribers roaming in mobile networks, electric vehicle owners require the convenience of recharging their vehicle batteries at multiple locations operated by different service providers. Nokia Siemens Networks’ user-friendly approach to authentication, billing and roaming can help address this need.”

There are eight members in the Smart Wheels consortium that cooperate in an ‘ICT for Electric Mobility’ model projects funded by Germany’s Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi). More information is available at
