The aim of this thesis is to discuss the different sections of electric mobility in general. After a brief review of some substantial basics concering electric vehicles, the thesis provides a deeper insight into specific areas of the Austrian law pertaining electric vehicles, battery charging stations and smart metering. International valid engineering standards regarding those topics will be reviewed as well. Furthermore, different charging standards within the European Union, Japan and the United States of America will be discussed. One of the bottle necks of electric vehicles, the battery pack, needs to overcome a few technological challenges in the future. Some of these issues and all important characteristics of a battery pack will be explored in a section of this thesis. The European Union forces a pan-European standard concerning charging plugs and communication between the vehicle, the charging station and the electricity producing corporation. The establishment of such a pan-European charging standard will be necessary, to realize an international (European) charging point network as cost effective as possible. Taking these issues into account and considering other factors like a customer-friendly handling of charging stations, several necessary charging concepts to establish such a charging point network in Austria will be provided. A detailed cost analysis based on these concepts will be presented and discussed in depth. The final section of this thesis deals with the additional power requirement due to the charging processes of electric vehicles. To avoid additional peak load periods caused by such charging processes, a mix of technical possibilities and adequate electricity tariffs to shift additional peak loads into off-peak periods will be presented.
