Abstract

This paper presents results of the H2020 European E-LOBSTER project which is to propose an innovative Railway to Grid (R +G) Management system, combined with advanced power electronics and storage technologies (the smart Soft Open Point and the electric storage developed in the framework of the project). In particular, the R + G management system will be able to make the best use of the available energy on both grids by increasing their mutual synergies and increasing the energy efficiency of two networks through electric energy storages and at the same time by creating synergy with charging stations for Electric Vehicles (EV). This paper demonstrates an overview of the state of the art of the proposed smart R+G energy management with simulation results of the main case studies as well as an overview smart mobility through Electric Vehicles, charging stations for EVs, e-mobility in general and its synergies with railways.
