Similarities, differences, sustainability, cost-effectiveness
Electric mobility contributes significantly to climate protection in the transport sector. However, a detailed examination of the characteristics of the various vehicle systems is not enough in the ongoing political, media and public debate. In addition to the frequently discussed applications of battery electric vehicles (BEVs), fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) also reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Both vehicle systems should therefore be considered equally in the discussion. This applies to all aspects: User interests, system technology, available resources, as well as the technical and economic investments required in the manufacture and operation of infrastructures.
An evaluation of the current development status of FCEVs and BEVs was carried out by an interdisciplinary body of experts from the VDI and VDE, which has published the results in a study. The main findings will be presented and discussed in this workshop.
The event is aimed at professionals from the energy sector, petroleum industry, automotive sector, public administration as well as planning bureaus dealing with mobility. The conference will be organised by the ETG Energietechnische Gesellschaft of the VDE in cooperation with NOW GmbH, the VDI Association for Energy and Environment (Gesellschaft Energie und Umwelt) and the VDI Association for Vehicle and Transport Technology (Gesellschaft Fahrzeug- und Verkehrstechnik).
