The transport sector continues to shift towards alternative powertrains, particularly with the UK Government’s announcement to end the sale of petrol and diesel passenger cars by 2030 and increasing support for alternatives. Despite this announcement, the internal combustion continues to play a significant role both in the passenger car market through the use of hybrids and sustainable low carbon fuels, as well as a key role in other sectors such as heavy duty vehicles and off-highway applications across the globe.
Building on the industry-leading IC Engines conference, the Powertrain Systems for Net-Zero Transport conference will focus on the internal combustion engine’s role in Net-Zero transport as well as covering developments in the wide range of propulsion 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 powertrain and energy will also be included.
The 2021 conference will provide a forum for engine, fuels, e-machine, fuel cell and powertrain experts to look closely at developments in powertrain technology required to meet the demands of the net-zero future and global competition in all sectors of the road transportation, off-highway and stationary power industries.
