From Bike to Electric Bike Level-of-Service

2022

Author(s): Kazemzadeh K, Ronchi E

In this paper, the authors use bike LOS (BLOS) studies as a foundation to identify the knowledge gap for ELOS. Along with BLOS, e-bike riding comfort and the distinction between bikes and e-bikes characteristics were scrutinised.

E-Mobility in Positive Energy Districts

2022

Author(s): Castillo-Calzadilla T, Alonso-Vicario A, Borges CE, Martin C

This paper offers a comprehensive analysis of the impact of e-mobility in a PED, simulated using MATLAB-Simulink software. The PED, a small district in northern Spain, is assessed in five scenarios representing varying requirements in terms of energy efficiency of buildings, type of street lighting, and number of EVs.

Coming Back to Reality

2022

Author(s): Dornoff J, Zacharof N

The European Commission plans to use real-world data from on-board fuel and energy consumption monitoring (OBFCM) devices to monitor the gap between official fuel consumption values and those observed during real-world driving. For obtaining reliable real-world data, it is necessary that OBFCM data be accurate.
