The Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI analyzes the origins and impacts of innovations. We research the short- and long-term developments of innovation processes and the impacts of new technologies and services on society. On this basis, we are able to provide our clients from industry, politics and science with recommendations for action and perspectives for key decisions. Our expertise is founded on our scientific competence as well as an interdisciplinary and systemic research approach.
In the eWayBW project, the German Federal Ministry for the Environment is funding construction of a test route in the Murgtal near Karlsruhe from September 2017. There are still many unresolved questions concerning the operation of such trucks. A consortium coordinated by Fraunhofer ISI is studying research questions as part of the scientific accompanying research.
While plug-in electric vehicles are regarded as a sustainable solution for passenger cars, alternative fuel vehicles for heavy duty trucks are still out of sight. A consortium of Fraunhofer ISI, Fraunhofer IML and PTV Transport Consult GmbH has determined the current research needs for fuel cell technology as a drive train for heavy duty trucks in the context of the scientific support of the German Government‘s Mobility and Fuels Strategy.
The Fraunhofer ISI publishes a new analysis of possible economic impacts of the change towards electric mobility. While recent studies point out the potential negative economic consequences of the ban of cars with a combustion engine, the experts of Fraunhofer ISI underline the potential for positive impacts on jobs and value added for the business location Germany trough electriv mobility.
