Metropol-E: Electromobility Rhine-Ruhr

  • Development of a settlement-oriented model for sustainable e-charging infrastructure.

  • Within the framework of the project Metropol-E funded by the Federal Ministry for Transport and Digital Infrastructure, PTV developed the concept of ​​a "settlement-oriented model for the sustainable development and promotion of e-charging infrastructure" proposed by the National Platform for Electromobility (NPE).


  • Settlement-oriented model for sustainable development and promotion of e-charging infrastructure (SIMONE)

    The settlement-oriented model for sustainable development and the promotion of the e-charging infrastructure (SIMONE) enables needs-oriented planning and distribution of the publicly accessible charging infrastructure. Because of the different use of the area and the associated user volume and behavior in different urban areas, a specific demand for loading infrastructure arises.

    SIMONE - planning instrument

    The Microsoft Excel-based SIMONE planning tool allows to estimate the loading infrastructure requirements as well as their needs-based distribution for several installation stages.

    SIMONE guide

    The SIMONE guide supports the application of the planning tool, provides background information and describes the development of the SIMONE planning approach.
