Energized for the mobility revolution

With effect from January 1, 2022, EDAG, the world's largest independent engineering partner in the mobility industry, has merged its skills from various fields including electrification, fuel cells and batteries into a single business unit "Energy Systems and Drive Train". With this move, EDAG is positioning itself as a strong engineering expert and provider of innovative solutions for new drive concepts for the mobility revolution. Embedded in EDAG's own 360° degree approach to the development of complete vehicles and production facilities, existing and new customers will from now on be able to rely on a competent partner for sustainable mobility projects. Roberto Diesel is to head the new business unit.

In order to meet growing demands for more sustainable, fossil-free and intelligently networked mobility today and in the future, mobility service providers and manufacturers are increasingly going to have to take the entire value chain into account. In this context, the energy infrastructure will play a key role in ensuring a sustainable future for our industrial society and the lifestyles and mobility habits we enjoy as a result. Starting with the largely sustainable generation of energy, its storage and availability, an efficient infrastructure and distribution structure, through to the supply of all essential energy consumers. With the Energy Systems and Drive Train division, EDAG is now redefining its position in this field.

EDAG also takes an all-round engineering approach to energy management. The focus here is not only on energy generation and consumption, but also on sustainability aspects. In the new business unit, developments and solutions are assessed with a view to their reuse and the underlying recycling processes.

Roberto Diesel, Vice President for Energy Systems and Drive Train at EDAG, reports: "In mobility and logistics, our focus is on all means of transport, from passenger cars and two-wheelers, commercial vehicles and work machines to buses, ships, trains and aircraft. Throughout the process, we consider all aspects of energy use, be this in the further development of battery-electric eMobility, fuel cell or hydrogen powertrains, in the industrial utilization, and in ensuring sustainable supplies to buildings. By using and building on EDAG's strengths from now on, we will be able to make a real contribution towards further advancing decisions and systems that are right for the future of mobility. Together, we can make a really enormous difference. And that is something I look forward to."
