Abstract
The compliance of air pollution standards in crowed city centers is a crucial objective for the local administration in the following years and the electrification of the road transport sector will be an essential part of the solution. In this paper, a feasibility study of an electric shuttle service to be used at the 6th International Conference on Sustainable Energy Information Technology -SEIT 2016 is presented. Assuming an initial assistants demand rate, the minimum number of electric minivans required for the service is calculated. With this information, the total energy required to transport these assistants from the nearest Metro station to the Conference Venue using these electric vehicles is evaluated. Finally, we analyze the possibility of charging all these vehicles using grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) electricity generated at the Conference Venue. It is observed that it is completely feasible to design a zeroemission shuttle service using PV generation, minimizing the CO2 emissions.
