Faster EV Charging with SiC Marcel Consée
Electromobility has challenges to overcome. Global environmental issues such as battery production, recycling, and power generation intertwine with individual and practical aspects. Learn how state-of-the-art semiconductor technology helps to solve at least some of the problems.

Emission-free Utility and Special-purpose Vehicles Julia Krüger
New environmental regulations and the need to balance CO2 emissions make the change from combustion engines to battery-electric drive systems inevitable. This is where the universal vehicle charging inlets from Phoenix Contact can help.

Going Off-Grid Efficiently With MicroGrids Paul Lee
Microgrids are becoming popular for environmental and dollar cost savings. However, adoption is dependent on efficient power conversion electronics enabled by the increasing use of wide bandgap semiconductors.

Power Storage Caroline Storm Westenhover
There have been some really interesting innovations in electrochemical storage devices (e.g. batteries and supercapacitors) in my area of focus. These days, bigger products demanding more energy are moving towards battery power.

The Rebel in the Electric Car Lynnette Reese
I had a very interesting conversation with a power electronics specialist regarding charging for electric vehicles. Let me elaborate: Charging for road taxes for electric vehicles. Those rich guys who can afford the Tesla are not paying road taxes like the rest of us. (I will call “us” The Combustibles Group.) And neither are the Leaf folks, either. The incentive in the U.S. is still a $7,500 tax credit for buying an electric vehicle. A tax credit here means that you figure up your bill to Uncle Sam on April 15 and then subtract $7,500 from what you owe.
