Abstract [en]

In the quest for lowering Carbon dioxide emissions and creating a more sustainable future living environment, personal transportation and its cost on both economy and environment is a key part and problem to be solved.

We can witness more and more electrical vehicles on our roads world-wide, and further more and more households are investing in solar energy in the form of Solar Photovoltaic (PV) cells. The arrays combined with the electrical vehicles could possibly cut down carbon dioxide emissions and monthly gas/fuel costs on households.

This report is a Bachelor thesis work at ABB, Corporate research, Västerås, Sweden. For Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan (KTH).

The report will present a prototype software-solution implementation for scheduling the start of electrical vehicle charging, based on parameters such as the current supply of PV Generated energy, price, CO2 emission and user preferences. A key functionality is to give the household in question the power of choice, to choose when and how their electrical vehicle should be charged, be it with the environment or the wallet in mind.
