Achievable revenues for electric vehicles according to current and future energy market conditions
Electric vehicles (EV) play a crucial role within the changing global and national energy policies. Thereby the market integration creates more difficulties than the technical feasibility. The controlled charging of EVs offers a possibility to trade at the energy as well as the reserve power market. A few business cases exist by which new actors like i.e. aggregators can obtain revenue. But exact figures of revenues are lacking. Thus general statements of the cost efficiency of EV market integration are missing. This paper analyses the latest development in German energy policy concerning its influence on current and future market conditions. A business model is developed to fit these market conditions. Using a holistic simulation model the revenues of EV integration are calculated depending on the market conditions, the business model as well as the regarded market. The result is the evaluation of the energy markets and shows which market is best suited to forward the electric vehicle integration.
