DEFINE - Development of an Evaluation Framework for the Introduction of Electromobility


The aim is to develop an analysing framework for Austria and Germany that can be extended to the entire European Union at later stages. Poland is chosen as an application example where this process of extension is demonstrated generically.

Project purposes

The consortium plans to develop two economic models, with substantial inputs from partners from three countries in Europe (Austria, Germany, Poland) allowing the assessment of economic, behavioural and environmental impacts of a shift towards electromobility. Our purposes are:

  • Generation of EV load profiles
  • Developing of charging strategies
  • Analyzing the effects on the low voltage grid

Project consortium
