In both research and teaching, elenia deals with the technological and economic challenges of electrical power supply in the 21st century.
In the three focus groups of smart grid, electric mobility and components for power supply, many different current research questions are being addressed. The integration of renewable resources into the future energy supply system, the charging behavior of electric vehicles and the analysis of switchgear are examples of the broad spectrum of research at elenia.
The competencies of the electromobility research focus are in the areas of charging infrastructure and charging management with the aim of system and grid integration of electric vehicles, as well as in battery technology from the cell to the system level. The research activities deal with the entire life cycle of a battery from production to mobility application to second-life applications.
