The green transformation of transportation calls for de-carbonization of the mobility sector. Future cars will have electric and other powertrains. New infrastructures have to be developed and widely deployed, e.g., charging networks and hydrogen distribution networks with filling stations. With new infrastructures, new stakeholders and actors emerge, e.g., charging/fueling infrastructure providers. The ultimate goal is to end up with climate neutral transportation and closed loop material flows.
Evolving Battery Solutions
Cross-Border Interoperable Fueling/Charging Infrastructure
Electric charging stations ideally are connected to the Smart Grid so that BEVs are charged with renewable electric energy from wind turbines or solar panels. Vehicle2Grid solutions allow a two-way flow of electric energy. Many BEVs collectively may be used as a source of electric power depending on overall demand for electric energy in the Smart Grid.
Charging an electric vehicle with limited reach is inconvenient. Enabling interoperable, trusted, secured, and widely deployed xEV charging networks will allow subscribers to roam between providers and across borders with one subscription.
The Fuel Cell Mobility Solution
The fuel cell-electric drive system is an economical and attractive technology for mobility with zero local emissions. It enables longer distance driving (in comparison with battery-only vehicles) and short refilling times and is therefore primarily planned for truck usage.
Fuel cell systems are characterized by relatively low materials cost but high manufacturing costs due to high technological requirements.
IEEE SA—Power Line Communication (PLC) in India
This IC program will engage with various stakeholders such as industry, academia, and utility companies, to establish a series of test beds for PLC. The test beds will provide an ecosystem for various stakeholders, ranging from established industries to enterprising startups, to develop and test their solutions that have PLC as the core technology.
