Sparking change: Speed up the electrification of transport with VTT

Electrification of transport is happening at an accelerating pace. We work with companies throughout the value chain to speed up market entry.

VTT has extensive know-how regarding the whole charging ecosystem, light- and heavy-duty vehicles, batteries, and capabilities to help in every step.

How we can help

Battery manufacturers

Managing the whole battery lifecycle:

  • Use more sustainable and efficient raw materials.
  • Create a second-life strategy to battery components.
  • Accelerate growth and implementation of new technology.

Vehicle manufacturers

Faster market entry with proven technology:

  • Get support from early stage measurements to final testing.
  • Model the efficiency and show accurate costs before big investments.
  • Calculate the total expenses of the whole product lifecycle.

Charging ecosystems

Know-how regarding the whole charging system:

  • Create a wide, secure and profitable network of charging parks and farms.
  • Define the most productive locations.
  • Develop charging units that are easier to manufacture and assemble.

Case: Electric bus revolution in Santiago de Chile

Santiago wanted to improve air quality by electrifying the city's bus fleet. Demanding conditions and lack of reliable data made it hard to predict costs and benefits, and to choose which routes to electrify and the vehicle types to buy.

VTT's holistic approach and collaboration to simulate and plan the electrification project have resulted in a huge success, which drives change both in Santiago and more broadly in Chile.
