Abstract: Energy is the basic need for any development programme. Growing energy demands are putting the non renewable energy sources at risk of extinction. One of the major energy consuming sector is automobiles, traffic in urban settlements. Now a days battery operated vehicles are on road for public and private transportation which are an alternative to conventional fuel vehicle systems of petrol, diesel, gas oil. But the issue of fuel or we can say charging the battery operated vehicles remains constant and a challenge for urban transportation systems. This paper is focused to design approach of such parking lots and road side parking slots which are not only space for vehicle parking but also charges the vehicle while it is parked. This kind of refueling system will use the idle time of the vehicle and will reduce the requirement of refueling stations. Such system will save the time of the car owner for waiting at refueling or charging station. The methodology of this approach consists of using the renewable sources of energy such as solar, wind energy and distributed energy generation systems so that such systems can be used in designing energy plus human settlements. The distributed energy generation system will reduce the need of major electric substations to handle the generated electricity..
