Abstract

This chapter presents a concept for the environmental assessment of LEVs. First, the objective of and the requirements on the concept are described. Then, an overall description of the concept consisting of four main parts is given. These four main parts are then described in detail. They are (1) the system description, (2) the modelling, (3) the visualization and (4) the implementation.

Footnotes
1
Some countries rely on very few or only a single energy source for their electricity. Therefore, the environmental impact of their electricity is very stable. Examples are Norway which is powered mainly with hydropower or Poland which mainly uses coal (The World Bank 2012).
 
2
Daylight saving time was levelled out.
 
3
For conventional vehicles the value is referred to as fuel reduction value. Transferred to (L)EVs the term energy reduction value is appropriate and therefore substituted in the following.
 
4
The approach is based on Rohde-Brandenburger and Obernolte (2002) and Rohde-Brandenburger and Obernolte (2008).
