To address the emerging threat of climate change, consumers must transition to sustainable transportation. The electrification of the transport sector through e-mobility poses new challenges and uncertainties for grid operators as shown in Figure 1. Without efficient prior measures, grid development problems will inevitably arise, causing a need for costly grid expansions. To ensure a technically and economically successful transition to electric vehicles, grid operators need modern, digital tools that enable the investigation of a variety of future scenarios. At present, these tools only exist in a simulation environment, where multiple assumptions are made to obtain feasible results. This poses a high risk, as operators must design and maintain distribution grids in advance and based on clear-cut scenarios.
