IZES gGmbH SWOT Analysis Between Battery Electric and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles
A major problem facing the world today is global warming. There are many contributing factors to global warming but one of the largest is carbon dioxide emissions (CO2), which is the most abundant greenhouse gas in the atmosphere. Regarding this problem there is a debate currently in the scientific community concerning the transition from fossil to renewable energy powered alternative mobility concepts in order to reduce carbon emissions caused by the transportation sector. Our planned paper presents two alternate drive and supply or powertrain concepts of the transportation sector of the future: Battery Electric Vehicles and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles. A detailed analysis is used to examine the strengths; weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) of different parts of each vehicle and respective refuelling or recharging stations.
