The Impact of E-Mobility in a Future Energy System Dominated by Renewable Electricity

Publication Year: 2018

Author(s): Bünger U, Michalski J


Battery and fuel cell electric cars have been described as a solution to achieve the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80 to 95 percent by 2050, but they would also impact the increasingly renewable electricity-based energy system. A numerical case study is conducted for a prototypical station consisting of hydrogen refueling equipment for fuel cell electric vehicles and charging points for battery electric vehicles located in Northern Germany with rather good wind but limited photovoltaics conditions. Major conclusions for the impact of both e-mobility concepts on the energy system are drawn.
