Abstract

This paper presents the results of a conceptual design study regarding photovoltaic applications in electric mobility systems while considering technical, user, regulatory and aesthetic aspects. A total of eleven different design projects were developed, mostly encompassing innovative applications for EV charging infrastructure, vehicle-integrated PV systems, or a combination of both. Four of these conceptual designs are presented and evaluated in detail in this paper, showing the potential advantages that PV technology could bring to electric mobility systems not just in terms of CO2 emissions reduction but also regarding product aesthetics and user experience.
