21 Oct Electric Mobility – Potentials and Challenges for Science and Technology
National Academy of Science and Engineering (acatech) 2010
The scarcity of oil as a fossil fuel and the continuous tightening up of the CO2 emission goals in conjunction with a sharp increase of individual mobility in Asia and many other regions of the world call into question the internal combustion engine as the dominant drive technology. The necessity of the reduction of greenhouse gases, connected to the rising level of urbanization, will make the technological switchover from the internal combustion engine to the electrical drive more attractive in the future.
The volume documents the contributions to the acatech Academy Event in April 2010. They investigate the potentials of electric mobility and the challenges for science and technology that have to be mastered on the way to an electro-mobile future.
