Ireshika Muhandiram presented results from E-MOB project on the topic of EV/PV/grid-interaction to students from the B.Sc. study course Mechatronics and the B.Sc. study course Business Engineering. It was a great opportunity to transfer knowledge from the project to the "stakeholders of the future" and at the same time get valuable feedback for our future work.

Subodha Tharangi Ireshika Muhandiram Arachchige from Sri Lanka studied at the University of Adger and finished her Masters degree in Renewable Energy in 2014. After a short time back in Sri Lanka she decided to make her PhD in Austria. Supervised by the University of Adger she is now working on her PhD thesis at the Research Center Energy of the University of Applied Sciences since 2018. Ireshika is one of the international staff members of RC Energy who enrich our team not only scientifically but also culturally.

With this interdisciplinary lecture, the RC Energy took the opportunity for the 2nd time to inform students of the bachelor courses at the FH Vorarlberg about the activities at the RC Energy. This year the focus was on e-mobility and grid interaction within the Interreg project E-MOB. The E-MOB project is an EU-funded research project on the topic of e-mobility. Nine project partners from eight European countries are working together to learn from each other. The aim is to develop measures for improved integration of e-mobility. The close cooperation of RC Energy with the state of Vorarlberg and illwerke vkw has a significant role in this project.
