About This Topic

Mobility is undergoing an extraordinary and exciting period of change. Closely linked to abundant and relatively cheap oil, reciprocating engines especially, are regarded as at least partially, responsible for climate change, and as a consequence, receive much of the blame. However, after the undisputed reign of the internal combustion engines lasting more than a century, many things are changing in the field of mobility.

Not only is climate change driving these changes, but also atmospheric pollution, the depletion of fossil fuels, the emergence of new modes of mobility, among others. Other, not necessarily new, propulsion systems may occupy the place of reciprocating combustion engines, and new clean fuels (e-fuels, hydrogen, electricity) will be needed.

However, there is increasing concern about the environmental impact of the mining activities required to provide the chemical elements necessary for batteries or the latest generation electric motors or the consequences of the production of vast quantities of biofuels and renewable electricity in order to satisfy the increasing demands of society.

Topics in this Special Issue cover:

  • - Electric cars, buses and trucks
  • - Electric micromobility
  • - Air, maritime and rail transportation
  • - Electric motors for mobility applications
  • - Fuel cells
  • - Hybrid and new thermal engines
  • - Hydrogen, biofuels and e-fuels for mobility applications
  • - Technology of electric batteries
  • - Battery charge facilities and car autonomy
  • - Car batteries as a mean of energy storage
  • - Dangers and fears associated with the new mobility
  • - Public vs. private mobility
  • - Logistic and traffic management
  • - Safety and security of transport
  • - New transport regulations
  • - Mobility policies

An 800V End to End SiC Powertrain to Accommodate Extremely Fast Charging

Received: 15 November 2022;  Published: 08 February 2023;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2301007


Widespread adoption of electric vehicles has presented the challenges of short range and prolonged charging time. Going forward, extremely fast charging is the only solution to these problems. However, the typical Silicon power electronics supported 400 V electric vehicle powertrain cannot live up to this challenge. Limitations include the [...]

From Food to Foot: The Energy and Carbon Flows of the Human Body at Walking and Cycling

Received: 10 March 2022;  Published: 18 July 2022;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2203025


The carbon footprint of motorized transport modes per unit length traveled encompasses the unit share of the vehicle lifetime emissions, that of the transport infrastructure, and those of the motor energy, considered both from “well to tank” and from “tank to wheel”. In the active modes of transport, i.e., walking and cycling, the [...]
