• Sourcebook Electromobility

    Baden-Württemberg and the Stuttgart Region play a leading role in the field of electromobility in Germany and Europe. The Sourcebook Elektromobility gives a detail-rich overview of the various activities in this area in southwest-Germany and allows for search functions by full-text, organization type or category.

where does the electricity come from?

The IIP (Institute for Industrial Production) was established in 1982. It emanated from the then Institute for Manufacturing and Industrial Science and Technical Economics group of the University of Karlsruhe (TH). The DFIU (German-French Institute for Environmental Research) was founded in 1991 and has cooperated closely with the IIP ever since. The chair of energy economics (headed by Prof Dr. W. Fichtner) at the IIP analyses techno-economic issues along the entire energy value chain, from primary energy production to energy conservation, energy transport, energy distribution and use. The transport and energy research group at the chair of energy economics examines the effects of electric vehicles on energy systems and mass flows as well as user acceptance in this fi eld. These multifaceted research issues are examined taking an interdisciplinary approach. It contains the analysis of effects on low-voltage systems or changes in power plant dispatch and extensions, the estimation of load-shifting potentials through demandside management activities, for example through delayed charging processes of electric vehicles, as well as further issues in the context of electric mobility.
