Webinar - Power Electronics

14th mai 2020

CARA, a competitiveness cluster for mobility solutions in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, in partnership with the 3 other French automotive cluster – MOVEO, ID4CAR, PVF – and under the aegis of the PFA Automotive and Mobility sector, offers you a webinar on the innovation needs of the automotive industry: POWER ELECTRONICS

This webinar will take place on Wednesday May 13 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.

With the interventions of:

  • Rémi BASTIEN, VP Prospective Automobile of the Renault Group and President of Mov’eo,
  • Dr Jochen LANGHEIM, VP Advanced Systems R&D Programs at ST Microelectronics, and VP Europe & International of Mov’eo 

Reducing the environmental footprint of vehicles requires massive electrification of powertrains. Indeed, the market share of electrified vehicles (hybrid and electric) will increase from less than 10% in 2019 to 100% in 2027 in Europe.

The consequence on on-board power electronics will be major and this will impact all electrified vehicles regardless of the architecture. The volume of turnover in Europe will thus go from 1.5 billion € to more than 10 billion € in less than 10 years.

The challenge is to constitute a French industrial sector of power electronics capable of being a leader in Europe and very quickly taking the largest share of this buoyant market and why not, initiating an “Airbus” from France power electronics.

It is now necessary to organize this ramp-up. The PFA therefore decided to launch an action plan to mobilize the French industrial fabric with the support of the public authorities. A first information webinar is offered to you on the context, challenges and opportunities of power electronics for the French automotive industry.

Other webinars will then be organized to deepen the subject with the actors who wish to contribute to the process. Access to the webinar is free – Registration required before 12/05 noon To register click here.
