Enablement via Generative AI: Bridging the talent gap in the Emobility transition
Munich, March 2024


here is a lack of employees for the transformation towards e-mobility. Generative AI has the potential to close this gap and reduce costs at the same time.

  • E-mobility requires talented specialists with new skills from OEMs and suppliers, but the labor market is largely empty. Berylls has investigated how AI can help to offset the consequences of this shortage.

  • The Berylls analysis shows that the use of AI can speed up work processes. The experts believe it is possible to reduce working hours by up to 25 percent.

  • As production efficiency increases, the need for personnel decreases and the shortage of skilled workers in the relevant sectors loses its terror.

  • Berylls calculations show that the global top 10 OEMs can significantly reduce the need to hire new specialists through the use of AI and thus leverage a personnel cost savings potential of almost 550 million euros.
