International Conference "How Efficient is Electro mobility?"

08.05.2015

Das Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg (HWK), die Universität Oldenburg und NEXT ENERGY, EWE-Forschungszentrum für Energietechnologie e.V. veranstalten gemeinsam eine Konferenz vom 04. bis 05. Juni 2015, bei der es um die Frage nach der tatsächlichen Effizienz von Elektromobilität geht.

Erwartet werden internationale Forscher aus den unterschiedlichsten Bereichen von Wissenschaft und Industrie. Sie werden sich mit dem Einsatz von kritischen Materialien und deren Rückgewinnung auseinandersetzen.

An der Organisation beteiligt sind auch Wissenschaftler von der Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China und der University of Waterloo (Kanada).

Im Folgenden die englische Ankündigung der Tagung:

What do we really know about the efficiency of electro mobility? Automobiles for example are becoming lighter, smarter, safer and steadily more electric. Each of these trends will demand new types and new combinations of materials – materials and systems that will be increasingly complex.

The Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg (Institute for Advanced Study, HWK) in Delmenhorst together with the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg, the EWE Research Centre NEXT ENERGY, and international partners in the P.R. China and Canada organizes an international conference “How Efficient is Electro Mobility”. The conference will be held on June 4 and 5 at the HWK; preceding the conference an excursion to two industrial sites in Bremen will take place (June 3).

This conference explores the future of electro mobility and searches for answers to the “efficiency question”. The future challenges for developers and manufacturers of vehicles may no longer be issues of energy efficiency and fuels.

Instead, new questions will arise regarding the use of new, sometimes scarce and environmentally problematic materials and their role in new drive trains as well as questions about systems integration, especially with the increasing importance of renewable energy and decentralized energy systems. These questions will result in new challenges for the life cycle management of vehicles, materials and systems.

The conference will bring together international researchers from academia and industry in different domains. They shall discuss across disciplinary borders crucial questions related to the energy and material shift in vehicles caused by new drive trains and power sources, such as batteries and fuel cells.

The envisioned integration of vehicles and their batteries into the electricity system further contributes to the mentioned shift as use phases overlap and are becoming indistinct.

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...

Im Focus: Autonomous 3D scanner supports individual manufacturing processes

Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).

Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
