Info

Alexander Windt has been a researcher in the RLI Research Unit Mobility with Renewable Energy since January 2019. He has already been part of the team as a student assistant since 2017. After completing his master's degree in Automotive Systems at TU Berlin, he worked at RLI on the modeling, optimization and technical implementation of municipal e-mobility concepts with renewable energy. Alexander gained experience through several years of testing hydrogen vehicles in everyday operation.

In his master’s thesis, Alexander analyzed alternative drive concepts in German local rail passenger transport with regard to economic and technical criteria. He modeled battery and hydrogen trains, carried out a travel simulation on the German rail network, and simulated a catenary extension optimized for lowest costs.

Alexander holds a bachelor's degree in automotive engineering from the TU Berlin, where he conducted a user behavior study to evaluate the energy consumption of the auxiliary units of delivery vehicles.
