For a sustainable and yet affordable energy supply, it is essential to use available resources more economically, to increase energy efficiency, and to reduce the cost of generating and using renewable energies. The focus of the “Energy Efficient Systems” business area is on the development of electronics for efficient energy conversion and energy management.
Particularly in the case of mobile applications, constantly increased power and energy densities are required while design sizes and weight must be reduced. The energy supply is relevant to all areas of application as a subsystem. It affects issues such as the smart grid and energy harvesting, power electronics, energy storage, and energy management.
