Integrated Renewable Urban Mobility

Updated: Feb 12, 2021

The transport sector contributes a large share to global greenhouse gas emissions – about 14% of GHG – through gasoline and diesel vehicles. Fine dust and nitrogen oxides also pollute the air in cities. The potential to reduce emissions with alternative drive systems is enormous, provided that the basic energy supply comes from renewable sources, such as the ones depicted below.

A critical determinant of the success of these strategies is the consistent support of local authorities. Across the globe, governments have been tackling the concerning problem of air-polluting emissions by committing significant resources to improving air quality. Achieving the goal of air purification will require that both the private and public sectors invest in clean energy technology.

In addition, there are opportunities for decarbonisation within the transportation sector itself. The transformation of vehicles from carbon fuel to electric power is visible all around us, and many governments and big companies – including most of the largest automotive manufacturers and some of the big oil – have already committed to carbon neutrality over the long term.

Road transportation generates about one-fifth of overall emissions of CO2, the principal GHG. Trucks and buses are accountable for 25% of CO2 emissions from road transport and for approximately 6% of total emissions. In spite of some amelioration in fuel consumption efficiency in recent years, these emissions are continually growing, essentially owing to increasing movement of road cargo.

Electric vehicles represent one of the best promising technologies for green and sustainable transportation systems, as they have a three times higher efficiency than internal combustion engine vehicles. The high penetration of EVs will have positive effects and benefits such as lesser fossil fuel reliance, significant reduction of GHG and toxic pollutant emissions, as well as the capability to contribute in the integration of renewable energy into existing electric grids.

However, EVs aren’t 100% clean unless they are powered fully by renewable energy resources.

Ainira Industries develops renewable mobility concepts for governments as well as for private and municipal companies such as public transport, municipal utilities, housing commission, and waste and water management. Under the Integrated Renewable Urban Mobility, IRUM, umbrella, we develop the concepts, strategies and technical solutions for urban mobility in both battery and hydrogen-electric drives from a holistic energy system perspective.

Additionally, IRUM is implementing concepts for fleets of battery and hydrogen vehicles, and designing and planning charging infrastructure – smart grids, fast and high-power charging stations, and hydrogen fuelling stations with on-site electrolysis from renewable energy. Our proprietary simulation tools and comprehensive, global expertise make it possible to optimally design such systems. Ainira’s partners are major infrastructure operators, federal authorities, cities, economic zones, and industrial companies.

Our far-reaching AI-powered Asset Management and Monitoring Platform, AMMP, facilitates the operation of the power system using communication, control and power electronics technologies, as well as storage technologies to balance production and consumption at all levels, ensuring minimum impact on the grid loading due to the EV or the entire fleet charging. Asset and equipment security, and O&M management are also enabled within the platform.
