Ports must prioritize OT cybersecurity and manage cyber risk

Ports’ increased digitalization and interconnectedness can contribute to cybersecurity risks Ports have accelerated their pace of digitalization. They are leveraging technology to improve efficiency and logistics, achieve port sustainability goals, and streamline processes. For instance, ports are adopting connected technology, automating equipment and processes, enabling remote access and control, and connecting OT and IT networks. These changes have intensified the need to prioritize cybers...

How buildings will solve the puzzle of electric cars

We all saw images this summer of climate change in action. Hurricanes and wildfires in the U.S., flooding in China and Germany, and crop-destroying droughts in Kenya composed a grim tableau. We can count on even more extreme and frequent weather events until we get serious about cutting carbon emissions. One unmistakable remedy at hand is eMobility—the mass-scale electrification of road transportation, a sector that accounts for 24% of global CO2. A full transition to electric vehicles...

eBus for Zero-Emission Public Transport

Transportation Diesel bus emissions pose environmental and health risks The transportation industry is one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions. That’s predicted to get even worse over the 30 years. Diesel buses, the most widely used form of public transportation, are a major offender. These heavy polluters are responsible for 25 percent of the black carbon emitted by the transportation sector, which is harmful to both people...

Charging into the future with Electric Vehicles

Automotive and Mobility In my interview with TotallyEV, I shared my thoughts on how electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructures enable digital transformation and drive sustainable outcomes. Let’s consider these global EV trends: This is what the future of net-zero transportation looks like Today, it is already a reality in Norway, with roughly 98% of its electricity being renewable, with the share of plug-in cars reaching 84.6% – something...

Why do EV charging stations need to be ready for IEC 61851-1 Edition 3?

Automotive and Mobility The new edition of the international standard for Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment (EVCE), IEC 61851-1, has finally arrived in Europe. Starting from February 3rd, 2022, all the EV chargers sold in Europe (28 EU countries, plus Iceland, Norway, Switzerland, Macedonia, Serbia, Turkey) must be compliant with this standard. So, the answer to the question on the title of this blog is simple: it is mandatory for everyone in Eu...

EV Battery Manufacturing Plants Charge Up

Power Distribution and Management The electric vehicles (EVs) market is going mainstream. Globally, almost 9% of all car sales were electric in 2021, up from just 2.5% in 2019. China and Europe are leading sales, but EV sales doubled, year-over-year, in 2021, to roll past 500,000 vehicles even in the United States. And that number is set to multiply, moving forward. Ford recently announced it had advance orders for more than 200,000 of its F-150 L...

5 Reasons Why Your Customers Are Ready for Smart Home Technology

Imagine being an electrician in the early 20th century and having a customer ask for the very latest in modern conveniences. Back then your options were extremely limited. Maybe you’d install some of the early electrical household appliances. Maybe a dimmer here and there. But automation? Or advanced lighting options? That would have required monumental effort. Imagine the wiring required to connect each and every function to an individual button! Lots of work, for little payoff. Luckil...

How can digital twins accelerate EV battery plants’ design and build?

Automotive and Mobility EV battery demand is predicted to increase nearly 15-fold from 2020 to 2030 The EV market is skyrocketing. There’s a major EV production bottleneck, though — there aren’t enough batteries to meet current demand. The problem will likely be even more challenging in the future because BNEF predicts battery demand will rise 15-fold from 2020 to 2030 in the Economic Transition Scenario. To meet this growing need, EV batter...
