Charging Infrastructure Need Along the Swedish Roads, Thesis

About the thesis

One of the largest transformations we will experience in the coming years will be the electrification of transportation and industry sectors. The transportation sector and especially road traffic, will undergo rapid decarbonisation via clean and efficient electrical drive trains. Already we see electric vehicles coming at speed. To enable the transition, it is imperative that the necessary infrastructure is implemented. However, that is not always the case.
Along the Swedish roads, predominantly in the northern parts, the coverage and availability of charging infrastructure is often poor thus making it hard to travel with a full electric vehicle. The area also sees significant seasonal variation in traffic, which produces occasionally very high demands on the infrastructure. We at Vattenfall R&D are interested in learning more about the potential gap between the charging infrastructure and the customer demand with the scope until 2030 and how this gap can be eased. This proposal has a closely related Master thesis ‘Opportunities for Batteries at Fast Charging Nodes in Sweden’.
Scope: What to do

• Map the way ahead to meet Sweden’s climate objectives regarding current traffic models, by involving selected stakeholder perspectives.

• Develop a heatmap of nodes where utilisation of charging-hubs could be of interest through combination of electric vehicle forecasts, socio-economic data, traffic data and models until 2030 (Inventory of structure & analyse geospatial & temporal data supporting the resolution of transport flows & related transport infrastructure).

• Forecast power and energy demand at the identified nodes until 2030.

• Map existing charging infrastructure capacity including public fast charging network and expected network development against above identified transport flows (including seasonality) to highlight any deficiencies in charging capacity/ throughput.

• Pursue the collected insights in this assignment with the perspective of delivering a whitepaper.

• It is recommended that the study focuses on Norrland and Svealand (electrical price areas SE1 + SE2).
