E-mobility – a challenge for IT as well!
The market launch of electric mobility (eMobility) coincides with the megatrends energy transition and digitization. Therefore the launch takes place in a dynamically changing energy market and increasing automation of processes and digital networking systems. This transformation occurs on timescale of the energy industry very fast. But also for the information technology, the pace of innovation is very high. As a consequence of this IT infrastructure and applications should be designed modular and scalable, and future requirements have to be already anticipated. A further challenge is the need of cost efficiency, which arises for example in the conflict between IT security / safety and the resulting costs. The German Bundestag has adopted the draft law to increase the security of IT systems. It is expected that the strict requirements, which are already known in the field of energy grid control, has to be extended to the entire energy operational infrastructure. Concerning the possible development paths, economically viable intermediate milestones as well as the resulting scaling costs are important aspects. In order to be successful at the impending rollout and in order to be able to concentrate on the core business, the main decisions for a sustainable infrastructure should be made today.
