Level 1 Header Mobilität
The third edition of the study series deals with the electrification of the powertrain and its impact on the industry.
From 2030 on, the fuel cell will be represented with a significant share in passenger cars, commercial vehicles and mobile machines. Sales of 11 billion euros for fuel cell components in passenger cars alone are possible in Europe in 2040.
The change in mobility can no longer be halted. The variety of requirements in the respective markets also requires a variety of available technologies. Hybridization and electrification are gaining momentum, as is the development of decarbonized synthetic fuels known as eFuels. Tomorrow's mobility is based on mechanical engineering - and requires open technology.
Cooperations with startups are also gaining importance in mechanical engineering. With the Startup-Machine, the VDMA offers its members a versatile tool box for matchmaking and networking.
How do Europe's transport and logistics companies feel about new technologies, such as drones? A new study by Panasonic reveals the answer.
Around half of global energy consumption can be supplied by green electricity in the future - alternatives will be needed for the other half. Hydrogen will play a very decisive role in this - for example as the basis for synthetic fuels.
A climate-neutral future needs energy from renewable sources - and hydrogen. H2 will play a crucial role in meeting global energy needs in a climate-friendly way, for example as the basis for synthetic fuels.
Climate protection requires the worldwide introduction of new technologies for the conversion and storage of energy. P2X is the key technology and offers great opportunities for mechanical and plant engineering.
New categories bring a breath of fresh air to the competition and call for entries with forward-looking technology for the construction industry to compete for one of the first places.

A "Call for Action" was signed by more than 150 organisations and companies at the end of September to accelerate the pace of the Maritime Energy Transition.
Virtually all countries that are committed to reducing CO2 and greenhouse gas emissions in order to meet the 1.5 degree target of the Paris Agreement cannot avoid the topic of hydrogen. Therefore, hardly a month has passed since 2020 without some country presenting its own hydrogen strategy to the public.
"Hello, new EMO Hannover" was the welcome message at the EMO Hannover Relaunch Conference in the H'Up on the Hannover Exhibition Grounds. On 14 September this year, the VDW (German Machine Tool Builders' Association), organiser of the EMO Hannover, invited international media representatives and EMO Hannover exhibitors to the digital presentation of the new trade fair concept. The concept and the topics were presented with exciting keynotes and stimulating discussions.
With exciting insights into onboard chargers, simultaneous engineering and vehicle-2-x communication.
The digital business report reflects the variety of products and services offered by the association as well as its work results of the last four years.

New PtX potential atlas on energy sources from solar and wind energy.
Federal Environment Minister Svenja Schulze, Federal Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer and the President of the German Air Transport Association BDL, Peter Gerber, signed the "PtL Roadmap" together with representatives of other federal and state ministries as well as the aviation industry, mineral oil industry and plant manufacturers and operators.
It is not the engine that is the problem, but the fossil fuel, which must therefore be replaced by CO2-free alternatives as soon as possible.
News from the department
The "Fit for 55" climate package will permanently shape and change society and the economy in Europe. But the change can only succeed with courageous political decisions - for example if planning procedures are drastically shortened. Europe must also develop the competence for new production technologies such as fuel cells or eFuels.
With the 'Fit for 55' concept, the European Union is finally focusing on concrete measures to achieve the climate targets. The strengthening of emissions trading and the inclusion of a CO2 price component in the energy taxation directive are steps in the right direction.
OPC UA is an open interface standard that can ensure the interoperability of machines and systems. Platform-independent and manufacturer-independent, drones in the industrial environment could also operate with OPC UA.
With the revision of the CO2 fleet regulation for cars, the European Commission now has a great opportunity to send a signal for technology openness in the field of mobility. It would be a gross mistake if it were now to block the way for other CO2-neutral drive options, such as the use of eFuels.
The VDMA, together with the Swiss mechanical engineering association Swissmem and the China consulting company Sinolytics, has drawn up an interim assessment of the "Made in China 2025" strategy, which is also relevant for materials handling and intralogistics.
