Parallel Impact Research

In order to make the overall knowledge and experience gained generally known, the federal government commissioned a parallel impact research. The main responsibility of the parallel impact research was to organise an effective knowledge transfer between projects and the professional public, to contribute to an ongoing improvement in the showcase project and further development of Germany’s expertise in e-mobility.

In close cooperation with the showcase projects the parallel impact research has

• identified examples of best practice and encouraged their distribution

• evaluated their cost efficiency and economic leverage

• developed courses of action on how to effectively overcome current innovation hurdles

• prepared the results from the showcase projects and the parallel impact research for communication to the national and international public.

Central data monitoring (CDM)

Partner for the parallel impact research

The engineering company Ingenieurgruppe IVV GmbH & Co.KG, Aachen was charged with developing a data collection concept and implementing central data monitoring of regional demonstration projects aiming at introducing and establishing electromobility in Germany. The central data monitoring organisation (ZDM) was responsible for collecting the information acquired from the regional demonstration projects (electromobility showcase and model regions for electromobility) to make it available for public exchange and for storing it in a structured form to support the respective parallel research and for later access. For this purpose a inter-project data platform has been designed, implemented, and operated.

Network for Electromobility Qualifications (NQuE)

Partner for the parallel impact research

In the area of education and training, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has commissioned a parallel impact research named “Network for Electromobility Qualifications (NQuE)” which was designed to supplement the showcase projects, but also went beyond their scope. The Federal Institute for Vocational Training in cooperation with IKA/RWTH Aachen and Ingolstadt Technical College carried out the project. The first stage involved an analysis of the current status of the initial eMob-related qualifications, including training, vocational and academic education in Germany. Based on the appropriate criteria, examples of best practice have been identified and documented on the NQuE internet platform. This enabled to set standards for good training programmes related to the new technology and to stimulate networking between the participants involved including across industries.

The second stage included analyzing demand for training programmes in the various fields of electromobility and determining to what extent existing programmes on education and training fulfil the demand defined by the parties involved. Workshops on specific topics have been conducted in order to determine what actions are needed for eMob-related training. Based on their findings, recommendations for action have been derived that show how to prepare the way for the quick spread and establishment of the best practices.
