The importance of a paradigm shift in individual mobility towards electric drives is evident due to global and local problems (greenhouse gases, pollutants, dependences, etc.).
The use and system integration of renewable and sustainable energies involve central challenges for electric power supply - already today, but especially in future. Efficient and intelligent overall systems and also storage systems can be the solution.
The aim of this project is focussing to these two topics to develop solutions for renewable driven electric mobility that can contribute to energy system stability by applying vehicles´ battery storages. Three columns are central in this project:
• Development of innovative system integration concepts of electric mobility and renewable energy. (Vehicle-To-Grid, Grid-For-Vehicle)
• Analysis of vehicle related demands of battery storages for both purposes, mobility and energy storage
• Inclusion of user needs and user behaviours for precisely definition of demands and interfaces
At first stage of project the three columns are covered. Simulation of different personal cars (diverse plug-in-hybrids, pure electric vehicles) leads to certain amounts of storage capacity adaptive for system integration concepts. These capacities influence the possibilities of control interval of fluctuating renewable energies. Combined with user needs, the results are applied for second phase to create electricity and individual mobility scenarios that can consider different general conditions in field of energy and mobility.
In phase three, calculations are made for dimensioning the needed energy and charging infrastructure. Two ways are taken into account for charging concepts: Normal charging (with low power range) and fast charging (high power range, similar to “filling stations”). Optimisation is done for determining the infrastructure density and charging strategies. Especially for fast charging infrastructure plenty of questions are unsettled and have to be solved before. Simultaneously, survey methods are used to find out acceptance and user potential of electric mobility for evaluation of the chosen scenarios acquiring environmental and traffic relative consequences.
The final stage discusses the technical and economical results in an overall system consideration leading to the development of recommendations for action of decision makers in industry, research and policy.
