    In Focus - Voltage from the Energy Storage Systems on Wheels

    Intelligent load management is a cornerstone of the German ‘Energiewende’, or energy transition. Storage systems take up surplus power from wind, sun and co., and feed it back into the grid when needed. Besides the familiar pumped storage power plants and new methods, such as storage in the form of hydrogen, electric vehicles play a key part in the options being considered – because their batteries can be used as (...).

    In Focus - Automation and E-Mobility: the Perfect Combination

    The future will be driven by electricity – and more and more autonomously. This will not only make driving more convenient: The cruising range of electric vehicles can also be increased by optimizing drive-away, acceleration or braking cycles. Although automated driving and electromobility are not prerequisites for one another, they complement each other wonderfully. Among other events, IAV has demonstrated in the WAVE TROPHY (...). More
