The year 2017 was a good year for the electromobility. Several governments, manufacturers and suppliers have tried to oversee commitments for promotions, announcements of new electric cars and technologies and sales records. And electric cars have come closer to the status of a future technology to a technology of the here and now a big step closer.
The coming years will be crucial for electromobility. Because there are several doubters and critics who are not convinced of the new automobile technology. It is clear, however, that the accelerated introduction of electric cars will have a significant impact on infrastructure systems and markets.
Therefore, the doubters and critics also paid a lot of attention to worst-case scenarios, from the collapse of the electricity grid is happy to be the speech or that electric cars are not so clean because of the carbon power supply in power generation. Both prejudices have already been refuted in a number of studies.
Intelligent loading technology means that electric cars can even serve for the benefit of the electricity system, which accelerate our transition to a sustainable energy conversion and can reduce CO2 emissions. This creates a new analysis of the British Energy Company Open Energi, which could provide electric cars to the British energy system by 2030 more than eleven gigawatts of flexible capacity. At this time, the study could already be admitted to nine million electric cars in the United Kingdom.
Although the high number of electric cars will cause the entire electric energy requirement to rise. But with intelligent, flexible control of the charges, it is no problem to avoid load tips. On the contrary, electric cars can even serve to smooth the load tips in the morning and in the evening. The electric cars could help to accommodate an oversupply of energy as a buffer and to return in times of undersupply.
This can be ensured, for example, that electric cars are loaded during the night. Since the power consumption is lowest at this time, the local network infrastructure would not be impaired, according to the study. In addition, the daily electricity requirement of an electric car at just under seven kilowatt hours – the charging process for this amount of electricity takes even at a slow house socket just under three hours.
Of course, intelligent loading can only be implemented with the driver’s consent. And drivers should only agree if their electric car is always charged when they need it. This can also be used artificial intelligence to automate the loading without impairing user experience: the technology could learn from changing patterns of consumer behavior and react accordingly accordingly accordingly.
