Widespread electric vehicle (EV) adoption is a key priority to facilitate the transition to a more sustainable urban mobility. Electric vehicles and multimodal mobility are key challenges towards greater sustainability in urban transport. In this paper the authors describe a simulation tool developed to study city wide scenarios of e-mobility. The tool is intended to support e-mobility stakeholders in finding effective solutions to facilitate a widespread and sustainable EV adoption in urban areas. The tool includes a suite of integrated models designed to reproduce e-mobility pattern, charging behaviour and resulting impact on electricity demand at a high spatiotemporal resolution. The platform provides simulation capabilities to support the analysis of multimodal approaches, smart charging strategies including the use of renewable energy and V2G technologies.
