Electro-mobility is picking up speed - not only the driving range is increasing but also the acceptance by the population. Following the launch of the first electric and hybrid vehicles it is now important to gather practical experience to adjust new developments.
Will energy efficiency targets be met? Will technological approaches prove their efficiency in the real world? What system will carry the day? Comprehensive research is undertaken to provide answers for many questions as yet unresolved. OEMs, suppliers and research institutions are working full steam ahead to develop new mobility concepts for the future.
Energy storage systems, power electronics and energy management are of vital importance for hybrid and electric powertrain concepts. Many existing approaches are being challenged; solutions that have proved their efficiency will see the light of the real world. It's all a matter of perspective. In order to achieve the global CO2 emission reduction targets we do not only need more all-electric and hybrid vehicles but also more plug-in hybrids and micro-hybrids with 48V on-board electrical systems.
Thanks to their larger production numbers enhanced micro hybrids will make an important contribution to CO2 reductions in the short term. Only in the longer distant future, with the availability of more efficient energy storage systems, will all-electric vehicles appear in greater numbers. However, new drive system concepts and components are being developed now. This is the time for OEMs and suppliers to position themselves in an exciting market.
With EEHE, the conference on Electric & Electronic Systems in Hybrid and Electric Vehicles and Electrical Energy Management, Haus der Technik provides an opportunity for developers, users and researchers to speak with their peers and network effectively. We have expanded the programme to cover aspects of energy management and on-board power supply, electric and electronic systems in hybrid and electric vehicles and also engine start/stop systems. This is the place to meet all the important international players in the industry. Having screened a great number of submissions following the Call for Paper, the programme committee has put together an interesting array of conference papers, poster presentations and exhibition of vehicles.
The topics that will take centre state at our conference are: electric and electronic systems as well as E/E architectures for hybrid, plug-in-hybrid and electric vehicles, electric charging, electric energy management, power electronics, low-volt storage systems and battery management for electric energy storage systems, market development, highly-automated driving and model-based development.
The conference exhibition is the platform for well-known OEMs to present their electric and hybrid vehicles and to provide test vehicles for driving events.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).
Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.
The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...
