Control Centre for the Electric Vehicle (Cecovel)

Electric mobility represents an opportunity to improve the efficiency of the electricity system as a whole, since it allows the incorporation of electricity as an energy vector of the power transmission sector.

The electric vehicle is a reality in our society. Its implementation contributes to the reduction of greenhouse gases associated with transportation and facilitates greater integration of renewable energys, in line with the energy policy targets set by the European Union.

Control Centre for the Electric Vehicle (Cecovel)is Red Eléctrica’s control center which, since January 2017, allows the monitoring and control of electricity demand for the recharging of electric vehicles, ensuring that in scenarios of massive implementation of electric vehicles, their integration can be carried out safely and efficiently.

Cecovel is the solution designed and put in place by Red Eléctrica to make it possible to recharge electric vehicles (EV) at any time and, to do so, efficiently. It is a collaborative project in which the main mangers of EV charging facilities in Spain take part. In addition, it currently monitors the measurements of more than 900 EV charging points.

This project has received recognition in the Smart Vehicle category of the 2017 enerTIC Awards.
