Article
Full-text available
This paper analyses the environmental impacts of electric automated minibuses operated in public transportation systems. The results are based on an environmental life cycle assessment study, which uses data from a minibus producer and field data from several European cities. It is shown that electric automated minibuses promise a reduction in envi...

This document presents the final deliverable of the Avenue stakeholder analysis. We conducted a series of 30 qualitative interviews to assess the stakeholder environment in Europe. In a second step we defined the Avenue stakholder and mobility services map.
Article
Full-text available
The arrival of new technologies and innovations on mobility, such as automated vehicles, creates opportunities to tackle urban challenges. The evaluation of the impacts of these innovations on the mobility system requires a comprehensive set of criteria and parameters. This article proposes a method to measure the impacts of Shared Automated Electr...
Conference Paper
Battery storage systems (BESS) are considered as an option to enable a decarbonized electricity system, allowing to integrate higher shares of renewable energy sources (RES). There are several technologies available, and the choice of the best option is based on the requirements of a given application field. At the same time, stakeholder expectatio...

Our current mobility paradigm has reached a tipping point. Individual mobility, based on cheap fossil fuel and high CO2 emissions no longer meet the needs posed by a globally increasing demand for passenger mobility, neither corresponds to the climate agenda. In this regard, innovations and technologies play an important role to shape the future mo...

Article
Our current mobility paradigm increasingly faces economic, ecological, and social limits in urban areas. The aim of this paper is to analyse if a fleet of shared autonomous electric vehicles (AEVs) can meet these challenges while satisfying the current requirements of privately-owned internal combustion engine vehicles (ICEVs). Therefore, analytica...

Article
Rural areas in Germany have a lack of well-structured local public transport systems and are still facing exodus. Furthermore, the German energy transition aims to bring inter alia 1 million EVs (Electric Vehicles) onto German roads by 2020. The aim of this paper is to analyse if innovative forms of EV based mobility concepts can better meet the ne...
Chapter
Meeting the need for transportation when the population will reach nine billion people in 2050 will be challenging for our societies: Driven by external costs like global warming, noise or congestions and supported by new policies and growing customer awareness, the current mobility paradigm based on cheap fossil fuel energy and high CO2 exhausts c...
Article
Full-text available
The Tunisian capital Tunis faces major traffic challenges. Traffic jams and pollution affect the environment, mobility, life quality and health of its inhabitants negatively. As a developing country, Tunisia is expected to grow economically in the next decades. Conventionally, economic growth is accompanied by an increase in pollution. This article...
Chapter
Full-text available
The automotive industry faces a paradigm shift. The demands are not solely directed towards the purchase of a particular automobile product any more but towards new forms of mobility. These forms of mobility are planned to be cheaper, 2.0, low-carbon, intermodal, and collaborative.

Conference Paper
Die Beitragsautoren des Tagungsbandes zum 6. Wissenschaftsforums Mobilität, abgehalten im Mai 2014 an der Universität Duisburg-Essen, diskutieren, welche Entscheidungen im Rahmen des Automobilmanagements, der Automobiltechnik, der Wertschöpfungskette und neuen Technologien sowie urbanen Mobilitätskonzepten notwendig sind, um den Übergang in die Ele...
Article
Full-text available
The traditional automotive industry is under a triple pressure due to the geographical evolution of different world markets and the consumers sociocultural changes as well as the public policies which are supporting sustainable development. The demands are not solely directed towards the purchase of a particular automobile product any more but towa...
Article
The Energy Transition requires sustainable energy storage systems and a paradigm shift in our mobility towards more sustainability. Vehicle-to-Grid and Power-to-gas are approaches which can offer potential solutions for both storage and for mobility. This paper compares the two concepts and evaluates them in terms of their advantages and disadvanta...
Conference Paper
The current mobility paradigm, based on individual and fossil fueled mobility, is challenged by a variety of drivers. An important economic and ecological driver is crude oil. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), oil demand will increase and exceed production by 2035 which leads to major impacts on the availability and cost of this s...
Article
Full-text available
Four categories of innovations have been identified by Freeman and Perez: incremental innovations, radical innovations, new technological systems (systemic innovations), and technological revolutions or new techno-economic paradigms. New techno-economic paradigms represent changes in technological systems that are so far-reaching in their effects t...
Conference Paper
Die Automobilindustrie sowie die Energiewirtschaft unterliegen derzeit einem Paradigmenwechsel hin zu mehr Nachhaltigkeit, welcher durch knappe Energieressourcen, neue Umweltanforderungen und einem gesellschaftlichen Wandel getrieben wird. Obwohl die Integration von Elektrofahrzeugen (Battery Electric Vehicles Abk. BEV) in das Stromnetz und möglich...
Chapter
Ökonomische, ökologische und gesellschaftliche Veränderungen werden in den nächsten Jahren tief greifende Änderungen in der weltweiten Arbeitsteilung zur Folge haben. Auch der Individualverkehr und die damit verbundene Wertschöpfungskette werden davon betroffen sein.
Article
Die Netzintegration von Elektrofahrzeugen könnte zukünftig einen Beitrag zur weitergehenden Nutzung erneuerbarer Energien leisten. Doch wie wirken sich Elektrofahrzeuge auf die Stromversorgung aus und wie lassen sie sich in die Netzinfrastruktur integrieren, wenn der Anteil der fluktuierenden regenerativen Stromeinspeisungen stetig zunimmt? Der Bei...

em>Mobility is essential to life, human needs, and economic development. Diminishing oil reserves, a growing dependency on oil and global warming will all strongly impact on mobility. However, innovative solutions exist. To keep mobility affordable it is likely that fossil-oil-based mobility will not be substituted by just one technology. Secondand...

Full-text available
The demand for vehicles in industrialised countries is dropping and the growth rate in developing countries is slowing down rapidly. Driver of this evolution is evidently the current crisis but also the expectation that in the long run oil will not be sufficient and finally. Paper discus about that situation.

In this project, we assess the environmental, economic, social and sustainability impacts of deploying automated minibuses in the public transport systems of European cities. This research is conducted for the H2020 AVENUE project: https://h2020-avenue.eu/
Project
Meeting transportation needs, with a predicted global population of nine billion in 2050, will be challenging for our societies. Driven by external costs like global warming, noise or congestions and supported by new policies and growing consumer awareness, the current mobility paradigm based on cheap fossil fuel energy and high CO2 emissions comes to its social, economic and environmental limits. Innovation in products and services and jugaad innovation can provide value propositions to meet the mobility needs of future generations and propose an answer to the current systemic challenges and externalities our societies are facing.
