Let´s have a look at Beginner´s Guide to EU funding


As is said by Kristalina Georgieva: “Our goal is clear – to boost jobs and growth and create a better quality of life in Europe”. It introduces beginner´s (SMEs, Large companies, R&D entities, and Public bodies) to the wide range of EU funding opportunities available, offering basic information on the application procedures, and others general rules, as well as tells where to find more details (enough for scared beginner´s!).
Moreover, contains the most recent information about the current EU programmes for the period 2014-2020. More details on the Beginner´s Guide to EU funding is available on http://ec.europa.eu/budget/funding/

So, after reading some parts of this document – this should be enough to involve some entity to participate in project proposal as a partner, or in ongoing project as a third part/advisory board, but … the real life is that noone from “Beginner´s” is reading this type of “Guide´s”, or almost never attend EU/National Info-day´s!

What happens, if only electrical vehicles will exists?


As is said by Janssens “You can see whether there is a risk of energy shortages in certain zones when a given number of vehicles are being charged. For example, if too many EVs are charged at the same time, is there a risk that the street lighting will go out?” in the news of EU: https://ec.europa.eu/digital-agenda/en/news/data-sim-what-happens-if-we-all-drive-electrical-vehicles

In continuation of these article “These answers will provide useful information for policy-makers, to reinforce the network in those specific locations or to re-design the charging point locations”

So, for the Shopping centers (like demo-site in EcoShopping project) it could be next asset to perform holistic retrofitting solutions, in order to approach the market of electric-vehicle, receiving more customers every day for charging EVs!
