Building on the 2021 event, the conference will provide a key forum for all vehicle, engine and powertrain development engineers and researchers to share their work and learn about the latest development and technological trends taking place.
Attend to get a detailed technical overview of the latest developments for internal combustion engines, as well as covering developments in the wide range of powertrain systems available (electric, fuel cell, sustainable fuels etc) and their associated powertrains. In order to achieve the net-zero transport across the globe, the life-cycle analysis of future powertrains and energy will also be included.
Join the conference to benefit from thought-provoking technical presentations from engineers around the world and be a part of ongoing discussions to tackle common issues concerning performance, efficiency, emissions reduction and more across a variety of vehicle applications.
Take back insights and findings from recent research projects and case studies from industry, together with lessons learned and best practice approaches to enhance your organisation's approaches to powertrain development.
CONFERENCE TOPICS INCLUDE:
- Emission Compliance and Reduction Strategies
- Alternative Combustion Engine Development
- Life Cycle Analysis and Sustainable Solutions
- The Application of Alternative Fuels including Biofuels, E-Fuels, and Ammonia
- Hydrogen IC Engine Technology and Applications
And much more, including dedicated networking breaks and Q&A panels!
