About

Electric cars are more than a novel means of mobility. They have been recognized as an essential building block of the energy transition. Fulfilling their promise will imply a significant change in the technical, digital and social dimensions of transport and energy infrastructure. If you want to explore the business opportunities this new market offers, then this is the course for you!

The Electric Cars - Business Certificate from EdX in partnership with Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) - DelftX explains how electric mobility can work for various businesses, including fleet managers, automobile manufacturers and charging infrastructure providers. The experts of TU Delft, together with other knowledge institutes and companies in the Netherlands, will provide insights into and examples of how innovations have disrupted conventional businesses and created new businesses altogether.
