Open Standards and Community Driven Supply Networks[edit | edit source]
The community of developers can define collaboratively standards in 3 major steps:
- communicate specifications of different options of energy supply for electric mobility
- evaluated user preferences,
- define open standards for the energy supply network.
- Create a crowd based supply network where the general public can generate income from the electricity supply for the electric mobility.
A participatory approach for a community driven supply network allows that the community uses the network for their supply of electric mobility and the community can get an economic benefit from being a part of the supply network (e.g. charge a parked car with their solar panels).
Low-Cost Technology in comparison high investment costs (e.g. coal-fired power station) can provide and income for the general public. Depending on political decision making in the country and policy strategies, the priority may be support more centralized or more distributed energy supply networks. The open community driven approach is more appropriate for distributed approach of small units. A distributed approach requires a strong IT connection of the distributed units, to cover changing demands and availability of electricity.
Learning Task[edit | edit source]
- Create a mathematical graph than shows in percents how many vehicles are moving (e.g. rush hour). Can you find evidence for that for your country?
- What is the role of Informations Systems in the context of energy supply networks, routing of vehicles and the availability of green energy?
