STORM final event – IEEE Smart Cities Symposium 2023 and European Transport Congress 2023

STORM project final session on Freight and Logistics developments

The final project event will be held over the traditional participation of STORM project on the IEEE Smart Cities Symposium 2023, this year organized as co-hosted event with European Transport Congress and hosted by Czech Technical University in Prague. Over the final session the project will bring insights from its latest developments over various freight and logistics use cases, as well as on future directions for research and innovation.

We invite all STORM partners and partnering projects come and meet us for one last time!

STORM session Agenda, 26 May, 2023:

10.00-10.30New needs and knowledge gaps in freight and logistics Jonathan Köhler, Fraunhofer ISI, Germany  

It will be presented a study on trends, knowledge needs, and policy analysis needs possibilities for new modelling for freight transport in the EU. In terms of the outputs and insight of freight transport modelling, the study has found some important areas where information and insights are lacking, and future developments need to be prioritized.  

20 min presentation and introduction on the case and 10 min Q&A
10.30-11.00Battery Electric Long-Haul Trucks in Europe: Public Charging, Energy, and Power Requirements

Wasim Shoman, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden

In this study case, we use a trip-chain-based model to derive charging requirements for BETs in long-haul operation for Europe in 2030: We estimate that about 40,000 overnight charging points (50-100 kW, combined charging system, CCS) and about 9,000 megawatt charging system (MCS, 0.7- 1.2 MW) points are required to support a BET share of long-haul operations at 15%. We will present more details for our methodology and insights into our results during the webinar.  

20 min presentation and introduction on the case and 10 min Q&A
11.00-11.30Innovative zero-emission logistics, insights from Finland and Czech Republic

Tomas Horak, Czech Technical University in Prague, Czechia

We will show the results of our last-mile delivery modelling effort within the area of Prague 6 and Laajasalo. The aim is to include in the modeling some of the emerging logistics technologies. Several scenarios were tested, starting from the scenario based on synthetic data. We hope that the simulation and the TCO calculation based on it can offer a valuable insight into the decarbonization of last mile delivery in urban environment.

20 min presentation and introduction on the case and 10 min Q&A
11.30-12.00EU logistics policies assessment tool and use case

Jonathan Köhler, Fraunhofer ISI, Germany

We will present ideas for new digitalised logistics systems in the future. These may include logistics control towers, blockchain applications, synchromodality. What are the critical dimensions of these systems and what will their effect be on GHG emissions? We will discuss how EU policy can promote competitive, green logistics and contribute to the objectives of the EU Green deal and the ‘Fit for 55’ program.
