Abstract

It is highly likely that electric vehicles and electric heat pumps will be introduced in new residential areas. The electricity demand of these devices is significant, causing them to have a high impact on low voltage networks. This paper focuses on low voltage networks of new residential areas and analyses investment strategies to increase the capacities of the networks needed for the new technologies. Two different strategies are compared: (1) investing now or (2) postponing the investments. It appears that investing in the capacity of the networks now is cheaper if the investments would be needed over 10 years, but postponing the investments will become a inancially better choice if the investments would be needed over 20 or 30 years.
