Schneider Electric reviewed the steps needed to integrate modern electric transport into smart city projects as cities develop and their geographical reach expands. An additional 2.5 billion people will seek to live in cities by 2050. Cities and suburbs will undergo major transformations to provide living conditions Sustainable development of its inhabitants.

Transport and energy are one of the pillars of this transformation and require radical adaptation to the needs of population and economic growth, without high congestion and pollution.

With the availability and affordability of electric cars, these cars are expected to have a third of new car sales by the end of the next decade, and soon the introduction of self-propelled vehicles and commercial fleets of electric vehicles will come into play as part of everyday life.

Electric transport will contribute to improving air quality and purity and achieving climate change goals, but it is rare to incorporate these tools into the overall vision of smart cities. The report, “Electrical Vehicles for Clever Cities: The Future of Transportation and Energy” Which was formulated in collaboration with Brin & Company, applied the following three principles to achieve the required integration:

A market-oriented multilateral approach

The size of the investments and the infrastructure necessary to support electric transport vary greatly from place to place, but any road map for electric transport needs to have three main characteristics to achieve the specific market penetration: local infrastructure and planning, energy system, culture and patterns Transportation.

Give priority to electric vehicles with heavy uses

Public transport and electric taxis will significantly affect carbon emissions. Schneider Electric and BMW are members of a global consortium of companies based in Bangkok, whose members are making joint efforts in cooperation with King Mongut University of Technology to spread and promote awareness about The importance of using electric vehicles throughout Thailand, by sharing the use of cars and electric buses available on campus.

The deployment of infrastructure related to the important shipping operations of our time, taking into account the potential transformation and upgrading processes that will affect future transport

The infrastructure for the shipment of electric vehicles should be developed along highways, within major destinations and near public transport stations. For example, the local government of Hong Kong encourages and encourages local real estate developers specializing in electric vehicle infrastructure by merging their operations With Octopus.

When these three general principles are applied, transportation assets and power systems will be able to help each other. Electric vehicles can be used as a decentralized energy source, providing controllable storage capacity and new and sophisticated power supply, which will contribute to the stability of the energy system Public.

The campus of the University of Uruff in Berlin saw the integration of electric vehicle chargers into the small local electrical grid, artificial intelligence techniques and machine learning capabilities, which would improve the performance of high-power vehicle chargers.

“The energy sector will have to accelerate and pave the way towards adopting and adopting a cleaner, more digital and decentralized system that is more network-based and more customer-centric, and will be available to the automotive sector,” said Jean-Pascal Tricoag, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Schneider Electric. Transport the opportunity to introduce new business models based on service models and participation, and provide new uses and services associated with electric vehicles as a decentralized energy resources.

Urban planning companies will need to support stakeholders in the transport and energy sectors to determine the optimal locations for the distribution of public transport infrastructure. All stakeholders will play an important and vital role in ensuring that customers enjoy a smooth and seamless experience. While providing support for deployments and distribution of flexible, open and multi-service infrastructure.
