Competence and Expertise for Sustainable Energy and Mobility Solutions
The business areas for a sustainable energy environment are wide-ranging and interact with the entire energy value chain. Starting with ecological power generation, through storage and transport, with the most efficient conversion to apply in environmentally friendly devices, products and systems. There are numerous approaches on our way to a sustainable world. Equally diverse are the individual issues and requirements that occur during the development, planning and implementation of specific projects. FEV Energy develops and executes tailor-made solutions and concepts to meet these challenges on the way to a sustainable future.
Our knowledge and experience cover everything from research and consulting to engineering and implementation of sustainable projects for and with our clients and investors. Examples of these would be, the development of sustainable fuel production plants, the system design of photovoltaic power plants, the optimal dimensioning and control of battery storage facilities, heat generator systems of fuel cell co-generation plants, stationary and mobile energy storage and loading systems.
In the area of consulting, our experts make an important contribution to clarify and investigate energy consumption. For example, as part of the preparation and implementation of energy audits and sustainability reports. This research is a fundamental basis to make sustainable decisions to reduce Green House Gas (GHG) emissions. In the automotive sector our engineers develop and design solutions for the integration of bidirectional charging management, like V2G. Specifically, this involves smart control strategies for energy management in domestic and industrial environments and for intelligent charging and discharging of connected vehicle batteries. We believe that modern and optimized internal combustion engines will continue to play an important role in the medium- and long-term future. We are therefor also focusing our research activities on the development of sustainable fuels. Important liquid energy carriers are e-methanol e-ammonia and e-kerosene.
Based on the extraordinary combination of experienced top management consulting and extensive technical engineering know-how of FEV we can support clients in all kinds of sustainability issues and several project phases. Starting from project planning and strategy development up to realization and installation. Roles we might engage in, spread from consulting, assistance, improvement, development, controlling, interim management, turnkey delivery.
We are likewise convinced that internal combustion engines will be important players in tomorrow's energy availability and mobility mix, for example, in shipping and aviation.
Another major player in the Power-2-X energy supply for tomorrow will be hydrogen. Therefor we are involved in electrolyser as well as fuel cell projects, initiated with cell-related investigations up to entire engineering for production systems in MW range.
Therefore, we offer specific development and testing services in these areas as well. Another important component in climate-friendly supply security is smart grids. Also in this area, we are conducting research of energy management systems in order to make our contribution to the smart grids and power supplies of the future.

Adapting existing expertise
For the previously named applications, FEV Energy takes the role of a system integrator. Component benchmarking as FEV's core competence is the key here: even if new markets and customers result in new requirements for the components used, their technical functionality remains more or less unchanged. In the first step, FEV focuses on business models that can be developed quickly with its existing development and testing expertise. In addition to energy audits, these include testing and development of fuel cell co-generation plants and electrolyzers, development of mobile charging and refueling infrastructures, and simulation and project planning of power-to-X applications. These technologies include the conversion and storage of renewable electricity into green gases such as hydrogen or methane (power-to-gas), into liquid energy carriers such as fuels for sustainable mobility and buildings (power-to-liquids), or for the synthesis of chemical feedstocks for industry (power-to-chemicals). The target group includes industrial customers in the business-to-business environment.
FEV is a globally leading engineering service provider and innovation leader in various industries and markets. 7,200 experts from a wide range of disciplines at more than 40 locations worldwide develop pioneering solutions that don’t just meet today’s needs but tomorrow’s. Ultimately, FEV keeps evolving – to a better, cleaner future built on sustainable mobility, energy, and intelligent software. For the companies’ partners, its people, and the world.
