Electrifying city logistics in the European Union: Optimising charging saves cost

By Julia Hildermeier, Andreas Jahn, Felipe Rodríguez

The use of electric trucks in urban and regional logistics has great potential to cut emissions in the freight sector and accelerate decarbonisation of transport. A key question for logistics operators is how to optimise truck charging in order to take advantage of lower electricity prices and excess renewable energy on the grid. To avoid the significant costs th...

Electrifying EU city logistics: An analysis of energy demand and charging cost

By Julia Hildermeier, Andreas Jahn, Felipe Rodríguez

Heavy-duty trucks are the main source of pollution and noise from urban freight. Electrifying these fleets brings substantial benefits to cities and the freight companies while advancing the transition to clean transport. Moving to electric fleets at an affordable price is possible today, if logistics operators understand the associated costs. This study by th...

Equity in the energy transition: Who pays and who benefits?

By Louise Sunderland, Andreas Jahn, Michael Hogan, Jan Rosenow, Richard Cowart

With its pending Green Deal, the European Commission is striving to make Europe the first climate-neutral region by 2050. A lot is at stake with this goal. The transition to clean energy can help mitigate climate change and bring extensive social, health and well-being benefits to all Europeans. This process, however, is not without costs, particularly in the sho...

Netzentgelte und Flexibilitätsanreize: Status Quo und Herausforderungen (Webinar)

Die Entgelte für die Nutzung der Stromnetze sind reguliert. Wie genau diese sich zusammensetzen, ist für Stromkundinnen und -kunden allerdings kaum nachvollziehbar. Gleichzeitig machen die Netzentgelte einen großen Posten auf der Haushaltsstromrechnung aus: gut ein Viertel der Zahlungen geht an die Netzbetreiber. Bei einem Verbrauch von 3.500 Kilowattstunden – was etwa dem Jahresverbrauch in einem...

Distribution grid planning for a successful energy transition – Focus on electromobility

By Urs Maier, Frank Peter, Andreas Jahn, Julia Hildermeier

The energy transition in Germany poses challenges, but two main issues are emerging with regard to power distribution. First, peaks occur on the system on days when high levels of wind and solar generation are injected. Second, increases in the use of electric heat pumps and electric transport are driving peak demand higher. Viewed through the lens of conventiona...

Elektrofahrzeuge, Ladeinfrastruktur und das Stromsystem in Kalifornien

By Julia Hildermeier, Jessica Shipley, Andreas Jahn

Die USA und insbesondere Kalifornien haben bei der Integration von Elektrofahrzeugen einen Vorsprung gegenüber Deutschland. Zum einen beruht dieser auf der größeren Anzahl von Elektrofahrzeugen, zum anderen auf den unterschiedlichen Regulierungsansätze. In dieser Kurzstudie wird diskutiert, welche Erfahrungen hiervon auf Deutschland übertragbar sind, beziehu...
