The electrification of road traffic is considered a key element of the traffic transition. Achieving Germany’s climate goals necessitates an ambitious upscaling of electric mobility to substitute internal combustion engines. A target for the development of e-mobility is the government’s initiative to reach 15 million electric vehicles by 2030.

This shift will lead to a significant increase in electricity consumption, particularly in terms of power load. Therefore, smart solutions and additional flexibilities are essential in the future energy system, with electric mobility playing a crucial role as a sector-coupling technology. Through intelligent shifting of charging processes and bidirectional charging, electric vehicles can contribute efficiently to the integration of renewable energies into the power system.

Key Questions of the Traffic Transition

  1. What energy-economic challenges arise from the market ramp-up of electric mobility?
  2. How can the potential of electric mobility as a sector-coupling technology be best realized?
  3. What regulatory framework is necessary for this purpose?
  4. What new business models emerge at the intersection of electric mobility and the energy system?

Electric Mobility in the Energy System of the Future

What impact does the market upswing of electric mobility have on the energy system of the future? It is clear that electric mobility requires green energy and must be successfully integrated into the power grids. But how?

To address this pivotal question, we intricately incorporate the development of electric mobility into our energy system modelling. This is based on representative mobility data and consistently updated technical parameters. This allows us to analyze various issues, such as the effect of smart charging processes on the distribution grid load caused by electric mobility.

E-Mobility as Part of the Decarbonization Strategy

In addition to systemic considerations, the topic of electric mobility is increasingly relevant from a corporate perspective as well.

Market-Oriented Charging of Electric Vehicles – Curse or Blessing for Distribution Grids?

The advancing electrification of the transportation sector poses significant challenges to distribution grids. Intelligent charging solutions, such as market-oriented charging, can facilitate the grid integration of electric mobility but also entail risks for the power grid. In collaboration with ARGE FNB OST, a consortium of distribution grid operators from eastern and northern Germany, r2b energy consulting has examined the impact of market-oriented charging of electric vehicles on the grid load.
