5 ways in which studying Energy Storage can land you a career in electric mobility

You can’t discuss clean energy generation without the mention of energy storage. It’s a part of almost every technology in use and development – making energy storage not only the most crucial element of energy sustainability but also the hottest topic of today.


We spoke with Silvia Bodoardo, a prominent professor on this topic at Politecnico di Torino to hear her thoughts on how learning this technology – and studying at EIT InnoEnergy Master’s in Energy Storage in particular – can land you your dream career in the cutting-edge field of electric mobility.

Energy storage is a key topic for electric mobility

When we talk about the main goals of the transportation industry; such as reducing dependency on oil, a more efficient energy transformation, significant CO2 reductions and lowering local emissions – it’s all enabled by batteries. Silvia adds, “To facilitate the energy transition and to use renewable energy sources, storing that energy is dramatically important.” Auto industry leaders such as Tesla are using new battery technology to grow the industry from the current <1% of the total global passenger car market, to make it possible for battery electric vehicles (BEVs) to be in everyone’s garage. For example, they have just announced a $25K electric car to hit the market within the next three years, and they can offer it at this low price due to its new battery cell (and manufacturing strategy).
