Future trends in eMobility: from innovative solutions to the largest worldwide V2G project

The seminar is held by ing. Driss Madouch, Engineer at Free2Move e-solutions, as part of the Master's Degree courses "Power Electronic Converters" and "Power Electronic Circuits".

  • Date: 06 JUNE 2022  from 10:00 to 11:00

  • Event location: Room 1.3 - Department of Electrical, Electronic, and Information Engineering "Guglielmo Marconi" DEI - Viale Risorgimento, 2 - Bologna - In presence and online event

  • Type: Seminar


The seminar will provide an overview of the product roadmap and innovative projects of Free2Move eSolutions, a joint venture between Stellantis (4th largest carmaker worldwide) and NHOA (worldwide leader in microgrids). From the iconic easyWallbox to DC fast charging solutions to be connected to city tramway, it will be possible to have a full picture of the variety of opportunities and solutions that, leveraging on power electronics knowledge, will be pivotal in the future eMobility era. Then, a tech focus will be made on what is currently the largest worldwide V2G project inaugurated in Mirafiori last September 2020. The V2G plant is able to connect up to 64 vehicles and provide up to 2 MW of power for the provision of ancillary services. The project will be upgraded in 2023 to allow the connection of around 600 electric vehicles that will guarantee over 25 MW of power coming from ev batteries for the provision of frequency regulation services to the Italian TSO as Fast Reserve Unit.



Since the end of the master’s degree in Electrical Engineering, I have held various roles for both Start-ups and large companies. A career that began as an energy consultant for energy-intensive companies has continued to evolve as an R&D engineer for the development of power electronic devices, a Project engineer Manager and Validation manager for a railway company, an innovation engineer for integration of batteries, hydrogen and renewable energy for naval applications. A great experience that changed my mind was the period as Technical Consultant for the Ministry of Transport, where I developed the ability to have an overall vision and to define effective strategies even in particularly complex environments, where the technical aspects are only a starting point. Along the way I understood and cultivated my passion for the technical innovation process integrating it with the ability to understand and coordinate the needs of each stakeholder for both private and public applications. At this moment in time, I’m Innovation manager for F2M eSolutions where with a spirit of innovation and in the role of a pioneer, I have the lead of projects to develop technologies that allow the global transition to clean energy and sustainable mobility, to contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions.
