Workshop: Power Electronics for Green Applications – Technology and Product Roadmap

Which are the most relevant markets and possibilities for Power Electronics in the Baltic Sea Region ? Where are the impediments for commercialisation of new products? Don’t miss the discussions. Get access to our technology and product roadmaps for the region and the world!

The Green Power Electronics (Green PE) project is an effort made to enhance the capacity of Baltic Sea Region companies within renewable energies, e-mobility, smart buildings and further market sectors, to take up advanced power electronics into their R&D strategies and investment planning. Challenges regarding the reliability under harsh conditions, economic viability of the transition towards advanced power electronics as well as general agreement on the technology and quality standards need to be overcome.

Green PE provides a collaboration platform in the Baltic Sea Region for research institutions, established companies, and innovative start-ups. It offers training workshops, pilot demonstrators, consulting and matchmaking events.

A big effort within the project is to develop a roadmap to identify specific possibilities and barriers for the market uptake in the Baltic Sea Region. We consider your organization an important actor and invite you to contribute to the identification of main issues related to the market uptake of power electronics for green applications.
