There are no insurmountable challenges associated with the electrification of motoring, says Jarmo Partanen, Professor Emeritus of Electrical Engineering.
Traffic Electrification has raised concerns about the sustainability of the Finnish electricity network. When internal combustion engine cars go down in history in the future, the electricity distribution in Finland and many other countries will be subjected to an unprecedented test.
Jarmo Partanen is a professor of electrical engineering who retired from the University of Lappeenranta last spring, specializing in electrical network reliability. We asked Partanen where the weak links in the electricity network are when traffic becomes electrified.
