01: Assessing flexibility potential based on real-world e-mobility data
Discovering the flexibility / peak shaving potential in residential EV charging.
Residential e-mobility charging is expected to support the energy transition for increasing the share of renewable energy. However, the potential is often estimated based only on simulations and without any real-world data. In this challenge, you can assess the flexibility potential with unidirectional and bidirectional charging of residential e-mobility charging based on real-world data. For this purpose, we bring lots of real-world load- and charging data from over 500 charging stations and cars. What is the flexibility potential of this fleet of chargers and cars? How could this flexibility be utilized and how big are potential monetary benefits? How can flexibility and monetary benefits be increased by bidirectional charging compared to only unidirectional charging?

An exploratory analysis of the data quickly revealed patterns that we were expecting: household power usage peaks in the evening were correlating with the peaks of ev charging power usage.
The switch to EV usage and residential charging is bound to increasingly become a challenge for the electricity grid. Our team set out to discover the flexibility potential for residential EV charging.
