Abstract

The valley of the Temples in Agrigento is one the most known wonders of the ancient Greek time to be still standing is South Italy. Chosen as an emblematic location in the center of the island, it is the exemplary site used to assess the potential for electric mobility in terms of energy and environmental benefits of electricity over standard fuels. Such an assessment is performed by means of a life-cycle approach, including the use of the Life Cycle Assessment methodology, the use of the standard ILCD-PEF indicators and the development of a parametric analysis investigating the impact of different electricity penetration levels in the local transports system. The results identify relevant energy savings in the electricity mobility scenarios (5-6%) as well a mixed trend for the environmental impacts: some indicators would show some relevant reductions (e.g. -70% for GWP) but others would grow as relevantly (e.g. +50% resource consumption for PV generated electricity). The research is developed in the context of the project Innovation for greeN Energy and eXchange in Transportation (i- NEXT).
