DRIVE-E Program

Electromobility for students – DRIVE-E Academy and Student Award

As is well known, enthusiasm and interest are aroused when you experience something yourself. The DRIVE-E Academy, a project of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, provides the perfect platform for this.

Within the framework of this outstanding event tomorrow’s creative talents meet first-class experts in the field of electromobility: The former group will not only be informed and inspired but at the same time will make important contacts. Lectures accompanied by workshops and also stimulating excursions to renowned automobile manufacturers are the trademark of this exclusive event. In total the DRIVE-E Academy not only provides an excellent entry to the complex group of themes of electromobility but it is also a special experience.

The climax each year is the award of the DRIVE-E students prize at which the motivation of talented young people and their outstanding work are honored.

EnergieCampus Nuremberg

High-class Research for a Sustainable Energy Supply System

Energie Campus Nürnberg (EnCN) is a R&D platform for the development and demonstration of a complete energy supply chain based on renewable energy sources.


In the EnCN, IISB is working within the project “NET – electrical nets”, engaging in efficient solutions for power electronic systems for energy flow control and for interfaces and electrical storage in the power grid of the future. The goal is a supply and demand compatible conversion, distribution, provision, and use of electrical energy.

This is related to the accelerated extension of energy generation from renewable sources, the advancing de-centralization of energy supply, and the increasing necessity of the transport of large amounts of energy over long distances.

Another important issue is the future integration of electric vehicles into the energy supply and storage network. Typical demands on power electronics in these fields of application are robustness, reliability, increase of efficiency, system integration, and cost optimization.
