Electric mobility will change the energy and automation market, contributing to significant investment in smart cities. These changes coincide with the evolution toward a cleaner, more decentralized, and digitized environment. Electric vehicle (EV) charging could create local constraints and stability problems on electricity grids and reduce the environmental benefits of electrification. Investment and infrastructure to support electric mobility will change significantly from one place to another.
The infrastructure will have the objective of distributing energy — in combination with grid edge technologies, such as microgrid and intelligent buildings — and integrating it into smart grids, in order to fully exploit the flexibility of electric mobility while allowing the stability of the energy system.
