Groupe PSA, Direct Energie, Enel, Nuvve, Proxiserve and the Technical University of Denmark have launched the GridMotion project with the aim of evaluating possible savings achieved by real-life electric vehicle (EV) users through the implementation of smart charging and discharging strategies for EVs.
An electric driver’s electricity bill could be reduced, with no impact on transportation use, by shifting charging times from periods when electricity prices are higher to periods when electricity prices are lower. Even further savings could be achieved by providing grid balancing services through a Vehicle to Grid (V2G) system.

GridMotion partners have just combined their complementary expertise to launch a 2-year demo project. The project is intended to evaluate the savings EV users could achieve under real-life conditions with the implementation of smart charging and discharging1

The project will be carried out with two complementary types of users:
- 50 Peugeot iOn, Partner Electric, Citroën C-ZERO or Berlingo owners will test “smart” unidirectional charging, in line with their mobility needs, when electricity prices are generally lower, such as night-time in France;
- a fleet of 15 B2B EV Peugeot iOn or Citroën C-ZERO vehicles with Enel bidirectional charging stations testing “smart” charging and discharging (V2G services). This fleet will provide grid balancing services through short charging and discharging  cycles, again carried out in line with mobility needs. Charging is expected to be carried out when there is surplus electricity supply on the grid, while discharging is expected to be carried out when there is surplus electricity demand on the grid.

Project partners are looking for volunteers to start the experiment. Participants should be based in France and own a Peugeot or Citroën electric vehicle produced from January 2015 onwards.
The role of each partner is detailed below:
• Groupe PSA  is in charge of recruiting customers and managing the project;
• Direct Energie will act as an aggregator towards RTE2  and will make bids in the electricity and reserve markets by taking advantage of EV battery flexibility;
• Nuvve will be in charge of controlling the charging/discharging patterns of electric vehicles;
• Enel will provide the bidirectional charging stations and its expertise in smart grids;
• Proxiserve will install the B2C and B2B charging stations;
• DTU will provide academic support and testing systems.

Plug-in vehicle (PEV) sales grew by 42% between 2015 and 2016 worldwide3 . This growth, fostered by technological improvements, falling prices and increasing pressure on air pollution, is expected to accelerate in the coming years. The GridMotion project is seeking to demonstrate how PEVs harness demand response and ancillary services to have a beneficial impact on grid stability and user income.

PSA Group and BNP Paribas announce a long-term strategic partnership in automotive finance around the joint acquisition of Opel / Vauxhall’s financing activities

As part of the broader alliance announced today between PSA Group and GM’s Opel subsidiary, PSA and BNP Paribas have agreed to jointly acquire Opel / Vauxhall’s captive financing activities and have entered into a long-term strategic partnership around the Opel and Vauxhall brands.

Banque PSA Finance and BNP Paribas Personal Finance will each acquire 50% of the share capital of Opel / Vauxhall’s financing activities for a total of €0.9 Bn, representing a multiple of 0.8x the combined pro-forma Book Value of €1.2 Bn at year-end 2016. As per this partnership agreement, BNP Paribas will fully consolidate the entity.
Opel / Vauxhall’s financing operations cover 11 European countries, serving nearly 1,800 dealers and have outstanding earning assets of ca. €9.6 Bn at year-end 2016, of which ca. €5.8 Bn are financed by deposits or securitizations. Opel / Vauxhall’s financing operations offer a full range of automotive financing products, including consumer loans, leases, dealer financing and insurance products, with a constant focus on optimizing customer experience.
The operations will benefit from combined Banque PSA Finance’s and BNP Paribas Personal Finance’s expertise in automotive financing to better serve Opel and Vauxhall’s dealers and customers and support Opel and Vauxhall development. The transaction will be financed from existing resources of PSA and BNP Paribas and will have an impact of close to 10 bps on BNP Paribas Common Equity Tier 1 Ratio.
Both Boards of Directors unanimously approved this partnership agreement.

The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2017 and is subject to customary anti-trust and other regulatory approvals.

“Opel / Vauxhall’s financing operations are critical to the development of the Opel and Vauxhall brands. We are proud to join our forces with BNP Paribas, a leading European banking partner, and are confident our complementary expertise will make this new partnership a success.” Carlos Tavares, Chairman of the Managing Board, said.
“This partnership represents a great opportunity to further grow BNP Paribas Personal Finance’s footprint on the attractive automotive financing business and is fully in line with our strategic goals for 2020. We have been a longstanding banking partner of PSA Group and are delighted with this value-enhancing partnership around Opel / Vauxhall. We will capitalize on our highly complementary capabilities to best serve Opel and Vauxhall’s dealers and customers and support the Opel and Vauxhall brands.” stated Jean-Laurent Bonnafé, Chief Executive Officer of BNP Paribas.

“We are very pleased with this new venture and warmly welcome the employees of Opel / Vauxhall’s financing activities within our partnership,” declared Laurent David, CEO of BNP Paribas Personal Finance together with Remy Bayle, CEO of Banque PSA Finance.
