Course content and evaluation

Energy Systems Integration: the future of transport is a fully online course that consists of eight self-paced online lessons. Lessons will both be about the history of electric trans­por­tation as well as the future and path towards large-scale electric vehicle use:

  • History of electric trans­por­tation: from Edison to the new Tesla
  • Electrical drives in trans­por­tation: overview of technologies
  • How does the integration of electro­mo­bility affect the energy system?
  • Business models and regulations behind charging stations
  • Integrating other forms of electric trans­por­tation into the energy system
  • The path towards large-scale electric vehicle use
  • Case study: How to roll out a reliable network of fast chargers?
  • Case study: Urban trans­for­mation: the impact of electri­fying public transport

To succeed in the course and receive a Certificate of Complesion, you will need to complete at least 80% of the courses content.

European colla­bo­ra­tions for innovation in sustainable energy

The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) is an EU body created by the European Union to strengthen Europe’s ability to innovate. EIT is active in different industries, such as manufacturing, health and culture. EIT InnoEnergy is responsible for accele­rating sustainable energy innovations and one of its tools for doing this is the European Battery Alliance for battery storage (EBA), that amongst other things produces training material for battery technology and electromobility. 

EIT InnoEnergy and EBA work with training providers all across Europe to adjust the training to local needs. Göteborgs Tekniska College are proud to be the first Swedish college to provide the online training from EIT InnoEnergy and EBA to the Swedish market.
