The project “ElectroDrive Salzburg” is a co-financed electric mobility model region of the Climate and Energy Fund in Austria. The project’s purposes are to offer electric mobility for companies as well as individuals through a selection of packages, to build up necessary charging stations for users and to implement new renewable energy sources, especially biomass. The research is divided into following parts: 1) Single measurements of specific car values and charging effects, 2) Repeated single measurements of specific car consumptions, 3) Series of measurements in practical use and 4) Continuous measurements of charging stations. The conclusion of this scientific accompanying research is that standby losses of Li-Ion battery systems are lower than ZEBRA batteries, but the overall driving consumptions (15-25 kWh/100km) are in the same range. The driving behaviors (distances and parking locations) of the model region drivers are different to the Austrian individuals. Most of the depths of discharges are between 30 and 60 % of battery capacity. The peak of the charging profile is about 0.33 kW/car and at 11pm if the charges of the electric vehicles are not controlled. Therefore in future intelligent charging controls are necessary to guarantee a stable grid and more renewable energy for battery charging.
