Electric vehicles

The need for charge points for electric vehicles will rise dramatically in the future

If Denmark is to reach the goal of one million electric vehicles on the roads in 2030, the number of charging stations will have to keep up. DTU has created a calculation tool that enables cities and municipalities to analyze how many charge points they will need in the future.

FUSE has been funded through EUDP (The Energytechnological Development and Demonstration Program) and is a collaboration between DTU, Frederiksberg Municipality, COWI, Spirii, Dansk e-Mobilitet, Elbilforeningen, Electricity Maps, and Radius Elnet.

The project takes place in Frederiksberg Kommune from 2020 through early 2024 and will look into how the charging infrastructure can support a massive transition to electric transportation while also analyzing the need for investments in expanding the infrastructure.

The charge point calculator is created by DTU, Hybrid Greentech, Dansk e-Mobility, and COWI and can be used by cities and municipalities free of charge. The calculation method has been developed by Hybrid Greentech and data has been supplied by Transportvaneundersøgelsen, Danmarks Statistik, a Danish charging operator, and Energistyrelsen.

The tool can be found here.

Europe is in an energy crisis. Gas and electricity shortages have put the spotlight on how we can reduce our energy consumption and develop new technologies that can help to provide us with safe, effective energy supplies in future.
