An increasing number of European cities are actively supporting Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) in order to make the personal transportation system more efficient and to increase the liveability of the cities. MaaS provides an opportunity to expand the market for electric vehicles to everyday users. It also helps to create a more seamless connection between electric vehicles and the power system from the technical, as well as from the economic viewpoint. This will help to exploit the potential of electric vehicles in order to increase flexibility in the power system and to avoid technical occurrences, such as overloads. However, there are still some obstacles in harnessing the best symbiosis between MaaS electric vehicle fleets and smart grid solutions. While some of these obstacles are linked to the markets that are not yet fully generated, there are also obstacles linked to different policies that are yet not supporting these new methods of mobility.
