Electro trucks: Is the electricity network at its limit?

Lecture series “Pausenbrot mit Grips”

11/21/19, 1:00 p.m. – 1:45 p.m.

In pursuit of climate protection targets, electromobility is increasingly important in Germany. But such transformation is not only taking place in the automobile industry. A third of vehicle emissions in Germany are caused by road vehicles, although they count for only a tenth of vehicles.  More and more manufacturers are announcing new electric truck models. However, the electricity network is not yet capable of dealing with the increasing demand, caused by electric vehicles. We need to investigate the impact of this change, to ensure that the network can cope with electromobility in the future. Until now, investigations into network capacity have focused mainly on electric cars, but Kathrin Walz from the Institute of Power Transmission and High Voltage Technology is investigating the new charging infrastructure requirements for electric battery-powered trucks.

Registration is not required.

Lecture series “Pausenbrot mit Grips”:
Doctoral researchers/young academics will be presenting their research projects in a relaxed and humorous atmosphere. The event is aimed at non-experts with little or no knowledge of the subject matter and will take place in the lunch break from 1.00 p.m. – 1.45 p.m. After a period of max. 20 minutes, the presentation will open up for questions, discussion and lunch time, so bring your sandwiches with you! We will provide the seating, drinks and dessert.
This lecture series is organized in collaboration with the International Center for Culture and Technological Research (IZKT) and the Evang. Bildungszentrum Hospitalhof
