SEM - Smart-Electric-Mobility


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 could be the solution. The aim of this project is to focus on these two topics to develop solutions for renewably driven electricmobility that can contribute to energy system stability by applying vehicles with battery supply. Three areas are central to this project:

• Development of innovative system integration concepts of electricmobility and renewable

energy. (Vehicle-To-Grid, Grid-For-Vehicle).

• Analysis of vehicle related demands of batteries for the purposes of mobility

and energy storage.

• Inclusion of user needs and user behaviour for precise definition of demands and


In the first stage of the project the three areas will be covered. Simulation of different personal cars (diverse plug-in-hybrids, pure electric vehicles) will lead to certain amounts of storage capacity which is adaptive for system integration concepts. These capacities influence the possibilities of control interval of fluctuating renewable energies. Combined with user needs, the results will be applied in a second phase to create electricity and individual mobility scenarios that will consider different general conditions in the field of energy and mobility.

In phase three, calculations will be made for dimensioning the needed energy and charging infrastructure. Two ways will be taken into account for charging concepts: Normal charging (with low power range) and fast charging (high power range, similar to “filling stations”). Optimisation is carried out to determine the infrastructure density and charging strategies. Especially for fast charging infrastructures there are plenty of unanswered questions which have to be solved in advance. Simultaneously, survey methods will be used to find out the acceptance and user potential of electric mobility for evaluation of the chosen scenarios whilst acquiring environmental and traffic related consequences.

The final stage will discuss the technical and economical results with the consideration of an overall system which will lead to the development of recommendations for decision makers in industry, research and policy making.
