The decarbonisation of our transport system has been one of AustriaTech's core topics for many years. E-mobility makes a decisive contribution to this. With numerous measures, such as the promotion of charging infrastructure in residential construction, the electrification of motor vehicles in Austria is being further promoted.
Experiences show that the majority of charging processes for electric cars take place at home. While the charging infrastructure in single-family homes can usually be installed quite easily, this is hardly feasible, or only at great cost, especially in large-volume residential construction. However, a lack of charging facilities at home represents a major hurdle in the purchase of an electric car. Therefore, an adequate charging infrastructure in residential complexes is an important prerequisite for increasing the number of new registrations of electric vehicles.
The supply of charging stations in urban housing and garage complexes poses technical, legal, economic and organisational challenges for all parties involved. Thomas Eberhard and Christian Steger-Vonmetz from AustriaTech gave a presentation at the ÖVG Forum on "Housing & E-Mobility" to draw attention to the tasks that the real estate industry has to face and how they can be met. It is important to start building up know-how now, as the demand for e-vehicles will rise sharply in the coming years.
AustriaTech accompanies the development of e-mobility through numerous activities to promote the decarbonisation of our transport and mobility system. With the guide "How do I charge my car?" (German) and the highlight report "Electric mobility in Austria", our team is working together with various stakeholders to present the latest developments and create good framework conditions for decarbonised mobility.
