Participants of this course will gain basic technical expertise in the field of vehicle technologies, charging infrastructure, batteries, policy issues and application areas for electromobility. The course provides an overview of challenges and solutions for the integration of renewable energy and electric vehicles. Participants understand and apply methods and examples to assess the environmental and climate impact of e-mobility in different circumstances, and they develop methods to transfer advisory approaches and best practices to their local context.
This course is suitable for policy-makers, practitioners, researchers, and civil society groups from the transport, energy, urban development, or climate sector.
The course will include presentations with handouts as well as group exercises with guided discussions. It makes extensive use of case studies, giving the opportunity to identify and discuss local issues, challenges and transferable solutions.
The integration of e-mobility in urban transport systems is as much of an issue as technical standardisation requirements and life-cycle analysis as of the integration of renewable energy. This training provides an introduction to various fields connected to electromobility. Provided that the topic of e-mobility is largely driven by industrial countries and few emerging economies, the participants will jointly work on the transferability of various approaches in the context of international cooperation. By that, the course aims at broadening and enhancing the capacity of local, regional and national players to plan, implement and monitor sustainable e-mobility solutions.
Seven sessions of about half a day (3 days for all modules):
• Principles of electro-mobility
• Batteries and charging infrastructure
• Policy and regulation
• Environment and climate impact
• Integrated energy networks
• Urban transport
• Electric buses
