What we do - and why!

Mobility connects people. People shape mobility. With over 6,600 employees around the globe, we develop revolutionary and efficient drive systems, we cross-link vehicles with each other and their surroundings, and we strive to make our lives safer using intelligent systems. We need the right people at the right place to do so. People who turn visions into reality – who think outside the box and promote innovation. People who are ready to push the envelope. Are you ready?


Hydrogen is becoming a crucial part of the mobility transition. To bring hydrogen-based propulsion to competitiveness hydrogen production needs to be expanded, prices need to decrease and supply chains need to be established internationally. This master thesis targets the evaluation of technical and economical potential of high voltage direct current infrastructure combined with local hydrogen production in the EU (and North Africa).

Your tasks:

  • Demand-side and supply-side market evaluation
  • Technical design and economical calculation of an initial HVDC grid to link relevant supply and demand sites
  • calculation of average hydrogen production costs


  • Study of Electrical Engineering or a related field of study, ideally with focus on HV technologies and/or infrastructure operation
  • Interest in sector coupling
