What is E-mobility?

Climate change, volatile oil prices and government regulations to reduce carbon emissions are driving the need for alternative fuel vehicles. Electric drive trains – powered by batteries, fuel cells or complementing internal combustion engines – offer the most promising technologies to increase overall efficiency in the transport sector. The term e-Mobility hereby represents the shift from traditional fossil fuel combustion engines to electric-powered drive trains.

Why are E-mobility services important?

A rapid pace of innovation has brought electric vehicles to the brink of mass market availability. With no sign of slowing down, these advances will continue to deliver crucial improvements in range, infrastructure and economy. To ensure effective adoption of e-mobility solution in global markets, services for new energy vehicles are important for vehicle and component manufacturers to

  • Ensure your new technologies, products and infrastructures are safe, reliable and meet the stringent specification of e.g. OEM’s and environmental Standards
  • Develop safe and sustainable solutions to ensure your long-term growth
  • Optimise the designs and minimise risks already in the development process while complying to regulatory Standards
  • Meet relevant market requirements to enter new markets with your e-mobility Solutions
