Über diese Zeitschrift

This journal offers a discipline-spanning forum for investigating shortages of natural resources, impacts on ecosystems and deterioration of the natural environment. Its coverage is focused on approaches that integrate considerations of energy, ecology and environment and that utilize its cross disciplinary integration to function as a needed counterbalance to the dominant economic approach. The journal fosters close links among these interrelated areas of investigation, to set up systems science based on knowledge from other sciences and to promote multidisciplinary solutions for tackling complex socio-economic and environmental problems. Topics covered include energy economics; life cycle assessment; carbon capture, storage and sequestration; sustainable energy production and consumption and more. A publication of the Joint Center on Global Change and Earth System Science of the University of Maryland and Beijing Normal University.

Herausforderung Elektromobilität für die Niederspannungsnetze – ein Bericht

Die stark zunehmende Zahl der Elektrofahrzeuge in Vorarlberg, Österreich, stellt die Niederspannungsnetze vor große Herausforderungen. Bereits bei geringen Durchdringungsraten kann es zu Grenzwertverletzungen bezüglich der Spannungen und Kabelauslastungen kommen. Besonders die steigenden Leistungsspitzen werden zukünftig hohe Netzinvestitionen mit sich bringen. Erste weitreichende Untersuchungen zeigen, dass eine hohe Durchdringungsrate nur integriert werden kann, wenn Ladestrategien weiterentwickelt und schrittweise in die Niederspannungsnetze etabliert werden. Um die Elektromobilität volkswirtschaftlich einbinden zu können, müssen dazu alle Interessensvertreter ihren Beitrag leisten.  Jetzt gratis downloaden!
