Seminar goals

The seminar basics of electromobility teaches the basics of the functioning and construction of an electric vehicle. The webinar participants learn about the individual, typical components of an electric vehicle and how these must be coordinated with each other.

One focus of the seminar is the introduction to battery technology, as this component is crucial for the dimensioning and design of an electric vehicle. A second focus will be on the charging infrastructure and charging standards. Based on this, typical questions of e-mobility will be clarified: How „clean“ are e-cars really, what about recycling and what happens if an electric vehicle burns? The seminar is rounded off with an overview of the current state of the art and an outlook on future trends in electromobility.

Target group

The event is intended for all professionals, engineers, project managers, specialists and executives who want to get started in electromobility and acquire basic technical knowledge in order to better understand, comprehend and, if necessary, make decisions about electromobility.
