    Excess heat from energy-intensive industries is often suitable for use in district heating systems but is usually unutilized. A detailed overview of the potentials available in the EU is now provided by a database of the sEEnergies project. In Germany, 29 petajoules of excess heat from industrial sites could be used, which corresponds to the demand of more than half a million households. The information is available as maps and downloadable datasets.

LamA: analysis of impacts of electric vehicles on the electricity system

17.05.2019

In the project, charging infrastructure for electric vehicles will be installed at 38 Fraunhofer institutes. Fraunhofer ISI evaluates effects of the infrastructure build-up.

The project LamA - Charging at Work aims at improving air quality in cities by installing charging infrastructure for electric vehicles. It is part of the Clean Air 2017 - 2020 Program launched by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. Using the models FORECAST, eLOAD and FlexGOLD, Fraunhofer ISI analyses the market diffusion of electric vehicles in Germany, the resulting regional effects on GHG emissions and effects on the energy system. This is done taking into account the load management of electric vehicles and other regional flexibilities. In addition, the development of the perception and acceptance of electric mobility in the local surroundings of charging infrastructure is investigated with a focus on employees and residents.
