projecte verde

VERDE project

VERDE was a Spanish project which brought together SEAT and Spain’s two largest energy utilities, Endesa and Iberdrola.

The main objectives of VERDE were to address the efficient use of energy transport, design control and safety strategies for charging electric vehicles, conduct research on batteries for smart infrastructures and electric motors, and connect everything through smart grids.

EURECAT coordinated the VERDE project. During four years of research, over 800 professionals from 16 companies and 14 public agencies from a range of fields teamed up to develop sustainable alternatives in the automotive, infrastructure and energy industries. IREC was also one of the project partners.


TORROT, a Spanish collaborative spin-off firm in which Eurecat has a stake, has developed and is currently producing state-of-the-art electric motorbikes for urban and suburban mobility. These vehicles are equipped with innovative removable modular batteries developed with Eurecat.
