London to host first dedicated hybrid powertrain forum in Europe

24 June 2013

Delays in mass-market adoption of pure electric vehicles means hybrid vehicle development has become a key priority for the automotive industry.

The Hybrid Powertrain 2013: Component & System Level Technological Development Summit (17-18 July, London) is the first dedicated technical forum to be held in Europe providing engineering focused briefings on achieving the optimal balance between cost, performance and commercial viability.

Combining increasingly efficient internal combustion engines with the emission reducing affect of electrification offers a significant opportunity to obtain CO2 reduction across vehicle fleets, but critically also deliver the right level of performance for customers. However, technological advances, efficiency gains and cost reductions must be secured from batteries, engines and motors, to innovation with control architectures and packaging. 

The forum will deliver 70 percent technical and 30 percent strategic briefings, scrutinising technological component developments, including battery, motor, engine, transmission, inverter and supercapacitors analysis, plus systems level issues, including integration, packaging, control systems and thermal management.

The OEM-led speaker faculty includes: Ford, Jaguar Land Rover, Peugeot Citroen, Daimler, Tata Motors, Ferrari, Lotus Engineering, Porsche Engineering, GM, McLaren Automotive, SAIC, Vauxhall, Alexander Dennis and more.
