Project description

A pilot project on electromobility will be carried out in a large-volume existing residential building in the 23rd district of Vienna between February and April 2019. The project is being implemented on behalf of the Climate and Energy Fund as part of the "Electromobility in Practice" programme.

From February 2019, charging stations for electric vehicles will be installed in the underground car park of the building. For tenants participating in the project, electric vehicles will be made available free of charge for a period of six weeks. Wien Energie will build the charging infrastructure as part of the project.

The core of the pilot project is a detailed measurement of the power supply and a test of the condition according to the 2030 forecast to show that retrofitting and operation of e-charging stations is also possible on a larger scale in existing residential complexes. In addition, the satisfaction of vehicle users is surveyed. The results will be disseminated to the target groups housing developers, building owners and property managers, private interested parties (tenants and apartment owners), network operators and energy suppliers, public administration and vehicle providers.
