The transportation sector is one of the major energy consumers in most energy systems and a large portion of the energy demand is linked to road transport and personal vehicles. Because of their higher efficiency, a modal switch from conventional internal combustion engines (ICE) to electric vehicles (EVs) has the potential to greatly reduce the overall energy demand of the transport sector. Our previous work has shown that a transition to EVs in a combination with a modal split from air and road to rail transport can reduce the energy consumption in Croatia by 99 PJ, which is approximately 59%, by the year 2050 when compared to the business as usual scenario. A potential issue regarding a high penetration of EVs is their impact on the electricity demand, especially peak demand. In order to properly analyse this impact it is crucial to model the hourly distribution of energy demand of EVs, and with this data analyse their impact on the electricity grid. The goal of this paper is to model the hourly distribution of the energy consumption of EVs and use the calculated electricity load curves to test their impact on the Croatian energy system. The hourly demand for the transport sector has been calculated using the agent- based modelling tool MATSim on a simplified geographic layout. The impact EVs have on the energy system has been modelled using the EnergyPLAN advanced energy system analyses tool.
