This paper presents the advances of the EPV Project, which searches the analysis and design of specifications of a new energy efficient urban transport system.In these days where Information and Communication technologies (ICT) play a key role in our constantly evolving society, and the environmental concern is increasing, opportunities of linking both issues are arising, which will help to make a profitable use of clean, renewable energy resources. The EPV (Electrically Powered Vehicle) Project is aimed to identify the possible integration of renewable energies in the electric vehicle charge, modeling and analysis of the distribution network for electric vehicles penetration. In the other hand, the technological goal of the project is to obtain a complete development of the hardware and software to optimize infrastructures and to develop new communication architectures. Assuring the scalability, security and efficiency in the charge of electrical vehicles, and at the same time the driver's comfort.
