PV-Powered Shared Electric Micro-Mobility Hub with Shared Power Bank Yingyue Li, Hongjun Li, Yan Li, Yuming Zhao, Yi Zhang



The rapid adoption of shared electric micro-mobility solutions, such as e-scooters and e-mopeds, has addressed the need for low-carbon transportation and efficient last-mile travel. However, challenges persist due to insufficient parking and charging infrastructure. This study introduces an innovative shared electric micro-mobility hub prototype, incorporating PV panels to provide energy and shared power bank stations for battery storage. Through a comprehensive case study, the economic and environmental benefits of different micro-mobility configurations and energy management strategies are evaluated. The results demonstrate that the micro-mobility with appropriately configured PV and shared power bank station can reduce carbon emissions by 99% and achieve a net income within one year. This research not only advances sustainable urban transportation but also provides a model for integrating various shared services, contributing to a more environmentally friendly and versatile urban lifestyle.
