The aim of the project is to increase the share of electricity used to power cars as a substitute for fossil fuels. The project proposal meets several needs of the state in the field of sustainable energy and reducing the energy intensity of the economy.
The project also supports the fulfillment of the political goals of the gradual decarbonisation of road transport. It covers an area related to long-term strategic decisions arising from the objectives of improving environmental quality and energy security.
Based on the forecast of the expected development of mobility in individual urban agglomerations and regions of the Czech Republic, segments of road vehicles will be determined, which are suitable for a possible conversion from burning fossil fuels to electricity. Energy efficiency models will be created in the individual centers. Subsequent analysis of the possibilities of the energy network in the area of resource capacities and its own transmission network will compile value criteria to support the decision-making process.
Models will be created and possible development in the time horizon will be assumed, taking into account the regional specifics of the Czech Republic and especially the possibilities of the energy network of the Czech Republic, excluding the impact on its security. The model will also take into account the expected use of other alternative fuels in road transport and technological developments in the field of car batteries. The model will be processed alternatively. The established principles for the application of electromobility will be subsequently verified in the Brno agglomeration.
Software for electric vehicles will be developed so that, at least with the support of Android and iOS operating systems, the software of the vehicle unit can be used on mobile phones with virtually no significant differences in terms of ease of use. The basic modules of the electric vehicle software include navigation software, which will use current online operating data and an updated database of charging stations with data on the amount and price of available electricity available near the planned route when calculating the route.
A further description of the functions of the navigation software is also given on the example of using the system.
The design and development of an expert system that will optimize processes both on the electricity supply side (producers, electricity providers) and on the demand side (electric car drivers) will also be very important for the efficient operation of the entire system.
