Quo Vadis 2022?

A Happy New Year from all the team at Bodo’s Power Systems. We hope that during the holiday period you had the opportunity to review the past year, rest and recharge your battery. We are entering the 16th year of the magazine full of energy and will once again continue to provide you with an issue every month, as we have done for the past 15 years. Our thanks go to all our advertisers who enable us to deal with the current situation. You’ve all heard about the chip shortage, but did you know that paper is also a rare material at times? Quo vadis paper books and magazines?

Quo Vadis 2022?

A Happy New Year from all the team at Bodo’s Power Systems. We hope that during the holiday period you had the opportunity to review the past year, rest and recharge your battery. We are entering the 16th year of the magazine full of energy and will once again continue to provide you with an issue every month, as we have done for the past 15 years. Our thanks go to all our advertisers who enable us to deal with the current situation. You’ve all heard about the chip shortage, but did you know that paper is also a rare material at times? Quo vadis paper books and magazines?

Of all the myriad of power electronics information that we receive each month, e-mobility is certainly the topic that I am most interested in personally. I'm a boy, boys like cars. Having spent the first half of my professional life in the automotive after-sales sector, I like to listen to the news surrounding German car brands. When I read the news that the Tesla Model 3 had outsold the VW Golf in Germany in November, my ears perked up. It will be very interesting to see where this goes once Elon's German Gigafactory is in full swing. Quo vadis German auto industry?

Bodo's virtual WBG event in early December was a great success. Over 2,000 registrations represented an increase of almost 70% over the 2020 event. This is an amazing number and evidence of the interest and importance of Wide Bandgap and the potential that lies in these materials, both technically and for us as a publication. And, I have to admit that Bodo was right when he suggested that we make the event virtual again. In hindsight the event would not have been possible in person at that time because of COVID. We both very much hope to return to Munich at the end of this year, because no doubt there will be a WBG event, one way or another. Quo vadis Pandemic?

Bodo’s magazine is delivered by postal service to all places in the world. It is the only magazine that spreads technical information on power electronics globally. We have EETech as a partner serving our clients in North America. If you speak the language, or just want to have a look, don’t miss our Chinese version at bodospowerchina.com. An archive of my magazine with every single issue is available for free at my website bodospower.com.

My Green Power Tip for the Month:
Do you like cold beverages and have a shed, patio, or balcony? If you live in a region where you can cool down your drinks outside, use this to save the space and energy in your fridge.

Kind regards
Holger
