EXPERTISE IN ELECTRIC MOBILITY - page 92

For electric mobility to become reality, the en-
ergy infrastructure must be adapted to the
new requirements. For several years now, the
Mannheim-based utility company MVV Energie
has worked on projects designing intelligent fu-
ture-proof energy systems, always keeping the
integration of electric vehicles in mind.
Vehicles of tomorrow will not only consume en-
ergy but will also be used as storage units in
the long run. Thus, they potentially offer a more
efficient use of energy from renewable energy
sources like wind or solar energy. These ener-
gy sources are subject to strong fluctuations.
Hence, grid-controlled power consumption is
essential. This is the goal of the Smart Grid Inte-
gration research project headed by MVV Energie
and embedded into the ‘Leading-edge cluster
Electric Mobility South-West’. It aims at devel-
oping concepts for an effective and efficient en-
ergy management system for e-vehicle charging
stations, using the perspective of a grid service
operator.
In the ‘Future Fleet’ project, MVV Energie and its
partners explored the role of e-vehicles in future
companies’ car fleets. For this, the company
designed, built and operated intelligent infra-
structures at five different locations. A fleet of
approximately 30 electric vehicles was reliably
supplied with power solely from renewable en-
ergy sources.
