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 from the current fossil fuel based transportation system to a sustainable one, featuring minimal CO2 output, primary energy demand as well as virtually zero-pollutant emissions.

Research carried out within SCCER Mobility is organized into five different Capacity Areas, focusing on battery systems, fuel cells and increasing the efficiency of internal combustion engines, minimization of vehicular energy demand, energy infrastructure for future mobility as well as the assessment of entire mobility systems.

The first funding period (2014-2016) concentrated on developing and testing new technological concepts. While this will continue in Phase II (2017-2020), a strong focus is also set on integrating competencies across the Capacity Areas along with transferring generated knowledge and technologies to other sectors. This will be promoted through cross-capacity projects as well as through close interaction with stakeholders from industry, transportation service providers and public authorities.
