The Road To Change: Electric Vehicles Power the Future for Everyone

New battery technologies coupled with innovations in the electric motor will drive this growth from inside the EV sector. Pressure from environmental groups, along with pricing, supply and demand of petroleum,will drive that growth from the traditional vehicle sector. The EV will prevail because it is alreadymore efficient, cleaner and more durable than traditional transportation. Most importantly, within the next five years, the EV will likely reach a point where it is cheaper than the internal combustion engine.EVs operate for one-quarter the cost of gasoline cars, especially on clean energy created by commercial solar energy fields, deep ocean currents, new wind mills and in stream augur turbines.

Integrated Power Electronics: The Road Merges

whitePaper | December 14, 2022

As electric vehicles have rapidly matured, certain features that were never necessary for internal combustion engines have become critical to EVs’ operation: a power distribution unit; a battery disconnect unit; an electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) controller; a battery management system; an onboard charger; a DC-to-DC converter. The trend is reminiscent of the growth in internal combustion engines’ electrical/ electronic architectures, where each feature required an electronic control unit — a separate box that took up precious space within a vehicle chassis. Every box needed its own software, its own connectors and its own housings, all of which resulted in added complexity and cost.

Utilities must focus on key energy transitiontechnology gaps to support grid stability

whitePaper | August 30, 2022

New renewable generation capacity is important as utilities retire existing coal plants. But often these new solar and wind resources are far from urban or industrial centers where the energy is needed, presenting transmission and distribution challenges. Utilities must find reliable methods to incorporate the energy mix from these green energy sources and maintain grid flexibility, while balancing supply and demand.

Offshore wind business feasibility in a flexible and electrified Dutch energy market by 2030

whitePaper | November 15, 2022

Offshore wind is the primary supplier of CO2-free electricity moving towards decarbonising the Dutch power system. The installed capacity aims to increase sevenfold to 21.5 GW by 2030. However, the current market trends of increasing renewable capacity, industrial electrification, gas and CO2 prices, the expansion of interconnection, and the need for grid reinforcements are making the power market more volatile. These trends, together with the phasing out of subsidies, result in increasing the risks for offshore wind business.

Resilience for Sustainable, Inclusive Growth

whitePaper | May 4, 2022

Economies and societies are enduring several crises simultaneously, all of which have a major humanitarian impact and potentially long-lasting second- and third-order effects. Climate change, the COVID-19 pandemic, a very weak recovery and the danger of stagflation and now Russia’s invasion of Ukraine pose urgent questions of organizational resilience that cannot be addressed in isolation. These world-shaping events overlap in time, magnifying their impact. The current era is increasingly defined by the interplay of complex disruptions, with their disparate origins and longterm consequences. Institutions are not fully prepared for the new reality. Many react separately to each disruption in all-consuming responses. Before they can recover, the next crisis is at the door.
