Abstract


The bold aim of Germany’s “National Electromobility Devel-

opment Plan” is to have one million electric vehicles on the

road by 2020 and up to six millions by 2030. The idea be-

hind the electrification of the transport sector is the reduction

of carbon dioxide (CO2 ) emissions. However, the electric-

ity consumed by electric vehicles have to be generated by re-

newable energy sources or if they are not available by conven-

tionalpowerplants. Hence, ahighnumberofelectricvehicles

means a paradigm shift for the transport and energy sector.

The electrification of road transport has an impact on the en-

ergy system with regard to the electricity generation and CO 2

emissions. In this paper, we show a first approach how the use

of different types (battery, plug-in hybrid, fuel cell) of electric

vehicles can be modeled and integrated in a simulation model

for the German energy system. Moreover, we discuss the im-

pact of electric vehicles on the energy system of Germany.

Our results show that electric vehicles provide high poten-

tial for the reduction of CO2 emissions in the transport sector

compared to vehicles with combustion engines, but they also

cause additional CO2 emissions in the energy sector.
