Electric Mobility – Opportunities and Risks


On Wednesday, November 15, 2017, 6pm, the Institute for High-Voltage Technology at RWTH Aachen University will host a panel discussion titled "Electric Mobility: Benefit or Harm to the Energy Transition?"


The panelists will discuss the question of whether the recent “breakthough” in electric mobility is likely to result in an overload of electricity grids, or whether electric mobility can provide sufficient flexibility to integrate renewable energy. Furthermore, the discussion will revolve around novel battery charging technologies and their implementation.

The discussion is moderated by Professor Armin Schnettler, head of the RWTH Institute for High-Voltage Technology.

The audience is invited to pose questions to the panel; after the event, attendees have the opportunity to talk to the panelists individually.
