Siemens and On pave the way for future urban mobility in Rome’s historic city center

  • Italian startup On introduces new integrated e-mobility service
  • Installation of 120 Sicharge AC22 charging stations to charge various electric vehicles in the city
  • Siemens delivers a cloud-based platform for managing the charging infrastructure

Siemens Smart Infrastructure supplies charging stations and cloud-based software for charging infrastructure management for the Italian startup company On. The solutions form the basis for a new sharing service for electric vehicles in Rome developed by On. The first 23 charging stations have already been installed in the center of Rome, with the rest to follow in the course of the year.

Rome is in the process of implementing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan to support the transition to greener and better urban transport. The aim is to promote accessibility for all citizens and to improve the quality of life, public health and environmental sustainability. An important element in achieving this goal is the introduction of shared mobility offers, for example for car and bike sharing.

“We are convinced that we can make a significant contribution to Rome’s future plans with our new zero-emission mobility project that we have just started with Siemens,” said Alessandro Di Meo, Managing Director of On. “This new sharing service gives citizens and tourists an integrated mobility environment in which they can use electric bicycles, scooters and cars together. We want to fundamentally change mobility in the Italian capital with an innovative, efficient and sustainable approach. ”

Siemens is supplying the charging infrastructure for this project, which consists of 120 compact Sicharge AC22 charging stations. There, two electric vehicles can be charged at the same time via two outputs with an output of 22 kW. Electric bicycles, electric scooters and other small electric vehicles can also be charged at two 230 volt AC sockets. The charging stations are connected to the E-Car Operation Center (E-Car OC), the cloud-based software for charging infrastructure management from Siemens. This application can be used to manage both the charging infrastructure and the charging processes. E-Car OC also allows the processed data to be exported to neighboring systems for use in other processes such as invoicing.

Based on this data, the on-app shows all Siemens charging points on a map. In addition, the availability and the operational status are indicated in real time. The driver can start the charging process in a smartphone app, which is provided together with the backend software, and use the desired payment service.

“The switch to electric vehicles is just one aspect of the transformation to urban mobility of the future,” said Jean-Christoph Heyne, Head of Future Grids at Siemens Smart Infrastructure. “It’s also about ensuring flexibility and availability, for example by sharing electric cars or other means of transport such as electric bicycles. The basis for such services is a networked charging infrastructure made up of hardware and software. ”
