Transportation Electrification Becomes Reality: Momentum and Change through Breakthrough Technologies, the promise of GaN base power devices
Dynamic forces are combining to produce a momentum away from fossil fuel based transportation to the use of electricity. Political, environmental, demand and supply pressures on fossil fuels all are combining with breakthrough advancements in Electric Drive Train technologies to produce an environment where electrical vehicles will become dominant players in transportation.
This half-day seminar will look at the powerful forces at play in the change to electric vehicles and the role of one specific family of breakthrough technologies, GaN based power devices.
