Metropol-E: Electromobility Rhine-Ruhr

Development of a settlement-oriented model for sustainable e-charging infrastructure.

Within the framework of the project Metropol-E funded by the Federal Ministry for Transport and Digital Infrastructure, PTV developed the concept of ​​a "settlement-oriented model for the sustainable development and promotion of e-charging infrastructure" proposed by the National Platform for Electromobility (NPE).

A project brief can be viewed here.


Settlement-oriented model for sustainable development and promotion of e-charging infrastructure (SIMONE)

The settlement-oriented model for sustainable development and the promotion of the e-charging infrastructure (SIMONE) enables needs-oriented planning and distribution of the publicly accessible charging infrastructure. Because of the different use of the area and the associated user volume and behavior in different urban areas, a specific demand for loading infrastructure arises.

SIMONE - planning instrument

The Microsoft Excel-based SIMONE planning tool allows to estimate the loading infrastructure requirements as well as their needs-based distribution for several installation stages.

SIMONE - guide

Citizen participation and stakeholder involvement will be stimulated on the topic of automated and connected driving in the city of Aachen.

The SIMONE planning tool and SIMONE guide can be downloaded here.
