The international EEHE Conference (Electrics / Electronics in Hybrid and Electric Vehicles and Electrical Energy Management) was being held on 8 and 9 June 2016 for the fifth time.
Haus der Technik brought together developers, users and researchers at EEHE, which combines the themes of three HDT conferences: „Energy Management and On-Board Networks“, „Electrics / Electronics in Hybrid and Electric Vehicles“ and „Engine Start / Stop Systems“.
Conference participants met all important players in the industry at a single conference. From the large number of submissions received, a particularly attractive programme had been put together with poster presentations and vehicle displays.
EEHE 2016 in Wiesloch was a great success with around 200 participants, 50 speakers, an attractive exhibition, numerous electric, hybrid and test vehicles as well as countless meetings, discussions and the opportunity to forge interesting contacts.
The Best Western Plus Palatin Congress Hotel and Cultural Center is located only 12 km south of Heidelberg, right in the centre of Wiesloch.

Ottmar Sirch und Carsten Hoff with co-operation of 106 co-authors 2014, 502 pages., 376 pictures, 34 charts, ISBN: 978-3-8169-3264-2 Preface Hybrid, Plug-In Hybrid and Electric Vehicles are entering the worldwide automotive market and the expectations are that by the middle of this decade there will be a wide range of established OEMs as well as […]
This week 200 experts discussed the implementation of alternative engine concepts in motor vehicles. The introduction of the Porsche 918 Spyder raised the bar even higher. Leading OEMs and suppliers then concentrated on detailed solutions in the areas of electrics/electronics for hybrid, plug-in-hybrid and electric vehicles, electric charging, management of electric energy, performance electronics, low […]
Modular Electrification in Vehicle Engineering
Compromise is required when developing electric or partly electric vehicles today. Engineers are confronted with various challenges when fine-tuning the interaction between engine, transmission gearbox, battery and auxiliaries to provide a perfect balance of performance, emissions, development costs and sales price. But one thing is for sure: there won’t be any automobiles without at least some degree of electrification.
Hybrid and pure electric vehicles, 48 Volt technology, plug-in concepts
When it comes to fully-electric vehicles, battery range and costs are the main problem to be tackled. Even plug-in concepts are still too expensive, making potential buyers hesitant. Thanks to the higher purchasing power of the target customer, these obstacles are not quite so significant in the premium segment. It is a fact, however, that the average car fleet comprises more cars of the lower price segment. Therefore, and because the internal combustion engine is still less costly, other options need to be developed alongside the concept of full electrification and plug-in technology. The 48 Volt approach might provide solutions. The cost/benefit analysis of energy and thermal management in the context of electrified auxiliaries is an important aspect to be considered. Mild and full hybrid solutions in combination with 48 Volt technology appear very promising indeed. If we manage to replace ICE-driven loads with sophisticated electric drive concepts, prices will come down, thus strengthening the competitiveness of electrified vehicles. Eventually, it is the customers’ acceptance and their readiness to buy that will determine the success of electrically driven vehicles. Both are predicated on a price comparable to that of the Diesel engine. Modular approaches to automobile electrification are the way to offer not only high-end technology but also interesting and affordable combinations for first-time buyers and for the masses.
