Welcome to the
International Conference EEHE 2023
June 13-14, 2023 in Essen, Germany

The conference language is English

The permanent increase in electromobility, reinforced by successful market launches of highly electrified vehicles and the call for a significant reduction in global CO2 emissions resulting from the Paris climate summit, require a rethink of the entire automotive and supplier industry.

At the same time, new trends are developing through progressive digitalisation and the application of highly automated technologies, such as autonomous driving. Electromobility is developing beyond normal driving into a digital means of transport and requires new competences, alliances and concepts.

What does EEHE 2023 offer?

electric systems
in hybrid & electric vehicles

electronic systems
in hybrid & electric vehicles

electrical energy management
in hybrid & electric vehicles

The concepts for electric vehicles or electric cars, plug-in hybrids, full hybrids up to micro hybrids and vehicles with start-stop functionalities are on the one hand taking on more and more concrete forms, but on the other hand are confronted with ever higher demands in terms of costs and efficiency. Protagonists from research and science are facing up to the complex challenge and exchanging views on the important topics of the future together over two days at the EEHE – electrical + electronic systems in hybrid and electric vehicles, electrical energy management.

Who should take advantage of the conference?

The attractive agenda of the EEHE conference – electrical + electronic systems in hybrid and electric vehicles, electrical energy management – is aimed at experts, managers and scientists as well as students working on the electrification of vehicles. A must-attend event for manufacturers, suppliers, development partners and employees of universities and research institutions. Experts who deal with
  • architectures and components for electrification, on-board energy networks, on-board systems and components
  • electric charging with infrastructure
  • electrical energy management
  • low-voltage storage
  • battery management
  • power electronics
  • E/E systems in the field of motor vehicles and commercial vehicles

Why should you definitely not miss the event?

The world has moved on – despite Corona, Lockdown, delivery problems, … – and a lot has changed, especially in the fields of electromobility, autonomous driving and digitalisation. In addition, rising energy costs and the effects of the war in Ukraine are forcing the entire vehicle industry to become even more sustainable and optimise energy consumption and conserve resources.

At the EEHE conference on June 13/14, 2023 in Essen, there will be the opportunity to discuss these topics and much more in a personal exchange on site and to get the latest technical information. An attractive agenda with many interesting lectures and an extremely exciting plenary discussion on “Hybrid quo vadis?” await all participants.

To what extent will future voltage levels (48V/400V/800V) play a role within vehicle technology and safety?

All three voltage levels have their specific raison d’être. 48V is a cost-effective solution to make vehicles with combustion engines more efficient and to enable new comfort high-performance consumers such as active roll stabilisation. 400V has established itself as the quasi-standard for the powertrain in electrically driven vehicles and the 800V is used where more performance is needed for charging or in the powertrain. The special thing about the EEHE is that all topics are addressed there in a bundle.

Continuing electrification demands ever new developments within high-voltage and fail-safe onboard networks. What topics will the focus be on in the future?

In the past, progressive electrification was driven by additional comfort consumers and reductions in emissions from combustion engines. With the step towards an electric powertrain, high-voltage systems became necessary in order to realise the higher outputs. Currently and in the future, the on-board network will be strongly influenced by new assistance systems and the ever-advancing automation of driving. Fail-safe on-board networks are thus becoming increasingly important. This topic is another focus of the EEHE.

Why should you definitely not miss the event?

We have put together an attractive agenda for the conference with cutting-edge presentations from vehicle manufacturers, suppliers and research institutions with the familiar two parallel sessions and will return to the excellently equipped conference venue at the HDT e.V. headquarters in Essen in 2023. There is the opportunity to discuss questions together interactively and to use the times between the sessions for networking.

What current developments are important in relation to the event?

The next steps in power electronics (SIC – >GaN) especially for use in vehicle onboard chargers, but also in the area of drives (in electric vehicles) and associated increases in efficiency and reductions in installation space.

The further usable handling of the battery systems after the intended use (end of service life in the vehicle) – >the topic “Battery Second Life”.

Why should you definitely not miss the event?

Because you can keep up with the technical discussions with the experts on site and exchange ideas about future trends.
