Clean mobility
Clean mobility is a key element on our path to decarbonization. How we make it happen – from e-bikes and cars to trucks and buses.

On the path to clean mobility

Supporting customers and communities to meet decarbonization targets

Today, 4.2 billion people live in cities around the globe. Ongoing urbanization is creating new challenges and requires sustainable mobility transformation. Zero-emission electromobility is the central pillar in providing the decarbonized transportation of people and goods.  Infineon's extensive range of power semiconductors and control ICs is accelerating the mass-market deployment of electrified vehicles of all types. Infineon is also working continuously on technical solutions for advanced charging infrastructure, the efficient generation and use of renewable energies and the potential of green hydrogen to make clean mobility work.

CO2 emissions from light vehicles, trucks, planes, ships, trains and their supporting infrastructure are emerging as one of the fastest growing sources of global emissions and will be in the number three position by 2030. They already account for almost a fourth of all global emissions. Nearly 75% of global transport emissions come from road vehicles with almost half attributed to passenger cars and buses. That is why rigorous decarbonization is the answer, with electromobility as its central pillar, powered by green energy from renewable sources.

Powering clean mobility

Whether battery-electric or fuel cell hydrogen: The drivetrains in zero-emission vehicles rely on power semiconductors to convert, manage and use energy efficiently. As the world’s leading supplier of automotive and power semiconductors, Infineon uses its expertise and a fully developed ecosystem of partners to help accelerate the mobility transition.

Sustainable success comes with expansion of the charging infrastructure

In addition to the range of electric vehicles, the corresponding charging infrastructure has a huge impact on the advancement of electric mobility. Today, a typical electric vehicle can charge to about 80% battery capacity in less than 10 minutes. This is comparable to refueling a conventional car with an internal combustion engine. These days, industries and communities are working hard to establish a dense network of charging stations worldwide.

It is Infineon’s ambition to help companies realize their designs for energy-efficient Direct Current Voltage (DC) fast charging points. Customers benefit from the most comprehensive portfolios for ready-to-install products and designs: And the entire product range - from power conversion, microcontrollers, safety and auxiliary power supply to communication - are available from a single source.

At the same time, the increasing integration of electric vehicles in the power grid is opening up another opportunity: By implementing bi-directional On-Board chargers (OBCs), at the end of the day all electric vehicles might be integrated in smart grids. This will turn vehicles into a power source, providing clean energy when needed.

From well to wheel: Leveraging the infinite potential of renewable energy sources

Mobility will only be clean when powered by energy generated from renewable sources. Electric vehicles powered by electricity generated from wind and sun are necessary in order to contribute to a net zero economy. Infineon plays an essential role at this point. Our semiconductors serve the whole energy chain from power generation, storage and distribution to energy-efficient consumption in electric cars and other vehicles such as e-bikes, e-scooters and e-vans for last-mile deliveries.

Fuel cell electric systems and green hydrogen technologies

Another lever for emission-free mobility is the use of fuel cell electric systems and green hydrogen technologies. These are suitable for long haul trucks, for example, and trains serving routes outside the main tracks that are now mostly run on diesel and not equipped with overhead electric lines. This also applies to urban traffic, where public transport vehicles cover a lot of miles. That is why in urban areas fuel cell electric systems and green hydrogen technologies are also a viable option for reducing CO2 emissions in urban transport.
