Electrification and Innovation – The Opportunity for Solid-State Circuit Breakers

In an effort to reduce carbon emissions, the world is looking to move towards electrification and away from burning fossil fuels for heating, energy, and transportation. We are near an inflection point in EV adoption that will require a proportional investment in EV charging infrastructure. In this presentation, we will explore the opportunity for Solid-State Circuit Breakers (SSCB) to be the enabling technology for EV charging infrastructure. We will also review key characteristics of WBG devices and how these characteristics play an important role in the adoption of SSCBs.
