Project EVer & BEniVer

This study examines the use of vehicles and the refuelling behaviour of cars registered in Germany. 

With this knowledge, the future use of regenerative fuels in the context of the transport system is to be estimated. This represents a contribution to the estimation of the market potential of regenerative fuels


The test persons use the MovingLab GPS logger for everyday trips. Only stops and their duration at filling stations are saved. The test persons are then questioned about this refuelling process i.e. the stop at the filling station.
The following questions are answered with the help of MovingLab:

  • What was the purpose of this trip?
  • What was the purpose of this stop at the filling station?
  • Were other activities carried out in addition to refuelling?
