The Electric Drive Systems Section is the platform for economic and technical topics of electric drive technology. Around 80 leading manufacturers are organised in this specialist field.
In the White Paper Drive System 2030, twelve future-oriented theses are put forward in the field of electric drive systems for a time frame of ten years.
The experts do not expect disruptive but rather incremental further developments in power electronics and motor technology, such as miniaturisation and increased efficiency. Accordingly, the focus of the white paper is primarily on digitalisation and associated business models, such as interaction of business partners in the horizontal but also in the vertical value chain.
The drive system in 2030 will develop further, especially in its sensor technology and connectivity in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) environment and embed itself in the user's value chain. Thus, future business models will be addressed that appear to be economically feasible due to the advancement of technological possibilities.
