Site Planning for the EUREF-Campus

The project Mobility2Grid (M2G) at the EUREF Research Campus tests sustainable and integrated mobility and energy solutions in an urban context. Central is the integration of renewables, micro-smart grids and electric mobility.

Challenge

In the forthcoming decades, both - the mobility and the energy sector - will be subjects of radical changes. It is likely that future societies will bring both aspects closer to each other. Apart from any technical challenge and economic feasibility, another main question has to be addressed. How can user demands for electric mobility be satisfied while staying in tune with renewable production and energy consumption? ICT solutions play a vital role in addressing those needs.

Approach

Specific tasks are defined in the project, being the formulation of an integrated mobility concept, the organisation of labs for the development of digital services, and finally the trial in a realistic setting. Various forms of information are brought together and analyses. Booking data, records from energy producers and consumers, charging infrastructure data, and in-depth surveys of a large number of local users create a unique frame for applied research and development.

Results

Origins, destinations, time of arrival, duration of stay, and choice of mode. Areas of transition like the EUREF-Campus are work locations of people with various backgrounds. The results show this variety and the pluralisation of every-day activity decisions, trips and mode choices and their complementary services in modern, flexible urban mobility.
