Analysis of a coordinated infrastructure development for the supply of battery and fuel cell passenger cars in Germany (only in German)
A research project of LBST for the Ludwig Boelkow Foundation and ADAC Foundation on the energy supply of battery and fuel cell vehicles.
The familiar picture on our roads is changing as more and more electric cars and vehicles with hybrid drives are on the road. Even if their share is still relatively small at the moment, we already have to think about what is necessary to supply these cars with renewable energy. How efficient do the electricity distribution grids have to be? Can our current grids bear this load at all and how must they be expanded?
We wanted to find out more. LBST’s 18-month project for the Ludwig Boelkow Foundation and the ADAC Foundation examined the infrastructure requirements for supplying energy to these vehicles in a practical and technology-neutral manner. Based on two example regions – a large city in northern Germany with a lot of wind energy and industry and a rural conurbation in southern Germany – the need for the expansion of the electricity distribution networks was simulated. The aim of the research project was to provide concrete recommendations for economically viable and sustainable infrastructure development so that the energy supply for e-mobility can be ensured nationwide.
The results were presented at the ADAC office in Berlin on 27 June 2019. In addition to the study, an abridged version of the study is also available for download below:
