Shaping the Energy Systems of the Future

Making the best engineering methods and tools available to solve the task of the century: An Energy System based on Renewables

Energy Ecosystem

The sustainable future in all sectors and industries is driven by the shift from fossil fuel sources to renewables. In a global energy trade system based on them, electricity as well as hydrogen-based chemical energy carriers contribute with various use cases to the efficient utilization, conversion, storage and distribution of renewable resources, at the right place and the right time.

We combine advanced engineering tools and digital development methods with our unique interdisciplinary solution competency to find pragmatic and efficient solutions, and so shape the energy system of the future.

With the deep understanding of both the energy and the mobility sector, AVL interlinks them with solutions for a sustainable future.

We have always dedicated all efforts to an efficient energy conversion. Whether it is in the power generation, fuel production or the whole life cycle. Caring about economic use of energy has been our priority ever since.

Efficient energy conversion for decades

The future of automotive engineering is green and CO2-lean - at the same time economical feasibility remains a priority. This creates the need to develop a cross-sectoral mindset outside the core areas of powertrain and vehicle.

We provide independent studies and strategic advice on future energy and fuel pathways in the mobility sector as well as CO2 analysis and scenario simulations throughout the life cycle.

Hard-to-electrify sectors and industries as well as existing mobility fleets around the globe will need renewable hydrocarbon in the mid- and long-term. Using CO2 inputs from various sources like biomass or direct-air-capture synthetic fuels can be seen as CO2 neutral in the whole life cycle.

Our solutions start with analyzing the current status, evaluating the options for improvements up to real-life energy measurements and demo system set-up. Depending on the complexity of the task, simulations are based on AVL’s proven toolchain including dedicated and specific digital twin models.

In the long term, avoiding CO2 emissions in a vehicle's life cycle will become the new target. The transport sector will increasingly compete for the limited renewable energy sources.

Mobility of Tomorrow: Are Affordability and CO₂ Reduction in Conflict?

As a global society, we are pushing hard to achieve a transformation to net-zero-CO₂ but without loosing energy security and our current living standards. The transformation in the mobility will come at cost, which endangers affordable individual mobility in the future. Doing nothing, however, will generate even higher costs.
