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?


Electrification and hydrogen have gained a central position in decarbonization of on-road transport, but there is no clear answer yet on how to decarbonize other applications such as ships, airplanes and off-road machinery. Among others, a big challenge for such applications is constituted by the need for local energy supply at scale, for example at harbors and airports.

Microgrids can offer opportunities not only to decentralize energy generation but also to optimize the overall eco-system, reducing carbon footprint and TCOs

Within this master thesis you will have the chance to analyze both the technical and economic aspects of selected microgrid concepts.
