Demand-based charging infrastructure planning for electromobility and hydrogen applications in the federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern
What will generally change in mobility and what are the challenges for creating a public charging infrastructure for electromobility?
The implementation of the energy transition and the turnaround of resulting climate relevant mobility in Germany should be actively designed and promoted in exchange with all target groups and actors in the country. For this purpose, the necessary conditions and framework conditions for a sustainable and climate-friendly mobility based on electric and hydrogen-powered vehicles in the federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern must be concretely created and guaranteed. According to the Integrated State Transport Plan Mecklenburg-Vorpommern of February 16, 2016, three specific challenges will be in the foreground:
- demographic change in a sparsely populated area,
- declining financial resources for transport infrastructure and
- the requirements for a resource-efficient transport system.
On this basis, the Ministry of Energy Mecklenburg- Vorpommern commissioned the State Energy and Climate Protection Agency Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (LEKA MV GmbH) with the preparation of a specific study. Particular attention will be paid to a complementary interaction of electric mobility with the regionally produced renewable energy from wind, solar and biomass in the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The main content should be about:
- current inventory of public charging infrastructure, their operators (CPO) and the applied technical standards,
- the basic relationship between the number of electric vehicles and the required number of public charging points for normal and fast charging as well as the required hydrogen filling stations for electrically vehicles in the federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern
- forecasts on ramp-up figures for electromobility in the country by the year 2030 and their additional demands for electricity and hydrogen.
The principle results of the study should be:
- drawing up a guide to the construction of public charging points,
- drawing up a specific action plan for the country,
- documentation and publication for all target groups, actors and stakeholders.
The results should provide the basis for planning of a demand-oriented public charging infrastructure for electromobility. This means a strategic and needs-based localization of public charging stations in the usual locations, a guaranteed provision of the required charging power through appropriate offers for normal and fast charging and the number of charging points corresponding to the requirements and the efficient use of stand and dwell times of electric vehicles.
