The special focus of this pilot is on combining the promotion of e-cars with car sharing, and the use of stationary batteries to balance peak demand from charging stations. It includes new housing projects built to avoid privately owned cars, charging facilities at intermodal hubs, and the use of second life car batteries as stationary storage.
The focus in the pilot is on both home charging, charging in public spaces, and charging in intermodal hubs.
EV type and purpose
In Bremen both privately owned and shared person cars are part of the pilot. Besides, public transportation buses will be integrated in the experiments.
Renewable Energy Source
• How to combine and operate stationary energy storage facilities (batteries) and on-site volatile (PV) energy supply with the needs of charging electric vehicles in a car-sharing situation as a major contribution to the “Energiewende”
• How to integrate and operate a low-cost battery-based charging solution in existing buildings by using second-life (used) EV-batteries
• How a fleet management platform for EVs can be combined with booking of charging facilities in a user-friendly way to:
a) enhance the reliability of recharging options and
b) optimize the charging process with respect to cost and use of green energy
• How to promote public-owned intermodal EV-car-sharing stations with recharging options in such a way that people are encouraged to use car-sharing thus relieving the city dramatically from parked cars (SUMP element). An example of such a EV-car-sharing station is “mobilpunkt” (= mobility point). This station is a specialty in Bremen pilot.
• How to integrate e-car sharing in new housing developments – as core element of a wider mobility management – to reduce the number of private cars (SUMP element)
