IEEE-DAY; "Electro-Mobility: challenges & opportunities?" GBS VTS WEEK, Webinar #1 of 3
October 5 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
The transportation sector has to face a historical challenge to significantly reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to limit global warming. This lecture will present the recent developments in electric, hybrid, and hydrogen vehicles, and also the challenges and opportunities of electro-mobility. The different types of electrified vehicles will be firstly introduced and their advantages and limitations will be discussed. The new technologies to be integrated into the vehicles of the future will then be presented. Some key European projects on the topic will also be briefly presented. Finally, the works of the International Lab eCAMPUS (e-mobility for CAMPUs of Sustainable Universities) will provide a broader view of the e-mobility, including economics and social aspects.
