Keynote

Zero Emission Becomes Real in Next-Generation Mobility

The European Union intends to cut greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 and has the goal be climate-neutral by 2050. Passenger cars and vans are collectively responsible for around 15% of total EU emissions of CO2. To meet the 2050 climate goal, road transport CO2 emissions would then have to decline more than three times as quickly (5.5% per year) from 2035 to 2050. Can such ambitious vehicle CO2 targets of the European Union and also those of other countries be achieved?

CS Chua will discuss the contribution of semiconductor companies to enable next-generation zero-emission mobility. Using electric vehicles, he explains how it is technically feasible to meet CO2 targets for vehicles while also meeting other crucial factors, such as extension of vehicle range, improvement of charging speed and the availability of a reliable charging infrastructure – with electricity from renewable energy sources. He discusses the market prospects for electric vehicles from 2023 to 2030 and the mix of semiconductor materials such as silicon, silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) used during this period.

Global Vehicle Electrification Trends and BEV Opportunities in the Developing World

Vehicle electrification is a set trend, led by developed countries and China, for the coming decades. Globally, Yole forecast (Q1 2023) a combined growth of ~1.2% in the period between 2022 to 2028, which the total light duty vehicle drops ~3% meanwhile. BEV definitely leads the growth with ~16% increase, far advancing the total market.

This change of powertrain landscape is reshaping the supply chain with several ongoing features highly relevant to the power electronics community, which are to be full explained in the presentation: Auto OEMs are turning more to in-house development and production: high voltage system integration is growing in various directions; power electronics demonstrate strong resilience towards current Si cycles; wide band gap materials are going through incubation to mainstream.

Opposite to common understanding, Yole is seeing huge opportunities of BEV development in developing countries, although the current penetration is low. Strategies, including financial promotion in both BEV supply chain and charging infrastructure, leveraging existing BEV supply chain, right positioning BEV models for local needs, and 2-wheeler early adoption, etc. can be applied by official and private investment in some developing countries, like India, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Turkey, etc.
