The Swiss Competence Center for Energy Research - Efficient Technologies and Systems for Mobility (SCCER Mobility) aims at developing the knowledge and technologies essential for the transition of the current fossil fuel based transportation system to a sustainable one, featuring minimal CO2 output and Primary Energy Demand as well as virtually zero-pollutant emissions.
Innovation Field A deals with components and devices: Capacity Area CA A1 aims at new battery technologies, CA A2 at optimal use of renewable chemical energy carriers for fuel cells and combustion engines and CA A3 at the minimization of vehicular energy demand (lightweighting and thermal management). Innovation Field B composes of CA B1 targeting infrastructure, logistics and ICT-systems and CA B2 covers the assessment of the transportation system.
The program aims at creating synergies at the interfaces of these five Capacity Areas serving as virtual research teams, composed of new and rededicated key research positions from ETH-Domain and the Universities of Applied Sciences. Many relevant Swiss and foreign companies are actively involved in various SCCER Mobility research projects.
