2nd International VDI Conference Electrified Off-Highway Machines
- Learn more about the impact and challenges of Electrification within the Off-Highway Industry
- Meet experts from the agricultural, mining and construction industry and discuss latest trends and developments
- Register for the “Electrified Off-Highway Machines” conference and visit our parallel conferences “Connected Off-Highway Machines” and “Smart Farming” free of extra charge
GET READY – On March 3rd- 4th, 2020 our international conference on “Electrified Off-Highway Machines” will return to Düsseldorf for its 2nd edition.
The future is electric
Powertrain developments and electrification in mobility and machinery have been breaking new grounds in the last several years. Yet the headlines have mostly been concerned with the increased proliferation of electric and hybrid cars. The changes to the off-highway sector have been just as revolutionary. This conference will discuss the challenges and opportunities electrification brings: From the latest developments in battery and engine technology and functional safety to operational issues, such as life-cycles, maintenance and regulatory factors, you will gain insight into how electric power can transform the industry and move forward into a lower-emission future, with new emission standards paving the road for these developments. These standards benefit electrified off-highway machines used in cities with strict guidelines, for example, or in situations where automation and robotics can lead to greater accuracy, or where fuel or operating costs can be lowered.
Key topics in 2020 to look forward to:
- New Electrification Solutions for increased Efficiency and lower Emissions
- Hybridization of Off-Highway Machines
- Developments in Battery Technology
- Well-to-Wheel: Alternative Fuels and Powertrain Solutions
- Practical Experiences and Use Cases
- Panel Discussion on „Net Zero - Carbon-free Economy“
- Interactive World Café Sessions
