Energy transition and mobility transition are two sides of the same coin. If electric cars are to become more environmentally friendly and sustainable than typical combustion engines, they will need to harness energy from renewable sources. But currently, the necessary power grids and comprehensive infrastructures for charging e-cars are not in place.
How can renewable energy and storage work hand-in-hand with e-mobility? What do the power industry and public utilities companies think electric grids will look like in the future? The Energy trade fair at HANNOVER MESSE makes clear that the key elements to future mobility are digitization and connectivity. Smart technologies will make power systems more flexible, electric cars more intelligent, and will link relevant industries more comprehensively.
