Alternative Powertrains for Commercial Vehicles
- Hear about what leading OEMs and innovative start-ups from around the world are saying about their newest developments.
- Learn about the technical details of various electric powertrains and how to convert your production for electric motors in high quality presentations.
- Use the common interactive sessions and evening get together to expand your professional network and make new contacts among international colleagues and experts.
The international VDI Conference Alternative Powertrains for Commercial Vehicles will engage with alternative powertrains for heavy and medium sized trucks as well as city buses and coaches. The discussion will involve fully electric powertrain systems that are powered by batteries or fuel cells, as well as new forms of hybrid systems that combine electric and combustion engines. In the presentations, you will learn about the technical details of the newest developments from leading OEMs, suppliers and research institutes. This will help you to assess the benefits and disadvantages of these different systems in various application scenarios. This VDI conference will be held in English.
New legal limits: 15% lower CO2 emissions for trucks from 2025
The electricification of the powertrain is becoming increasingly relevant for the commercial vehicles industry. Not least because of the new legal limits for fleet CO2 emissions adopted by the EU in 2019. These stipulate that emissions from trucks in 2025 must be 15% lower than in the 2019/2020 reference period. By 2030, CO2 emissions must even be reduced by 30%. Manufacturers will be liable for substantial financial penalties to the EU if these limits are not adhered to.
The VDI Conference Alternative Powertrains for Commercial Vehicles will show the characteristic features that need to be considered in the development and manufacture of fully electric commercial vehicles. There will be a high level of practical relevance, thanks to application examples from the postal service and logistics and transport companies. The discussion will consider the refitting of production lines to produce electric motors and powertrains and the question of which energy source – the battery or fuel cell – is suitable for which application. The challenges of building a suitable (charging) infrastructure for the efficient use of electrified busses and trucks will also be covered.
Free access to the VDI Future of Buses Conference
Your ticket for the VDI Conference Alternative Powertrains for Commercial Vehicles is also valid for the VDI Conference Future of Buses taking place at the same time. (Link:https://www.vdi-wissensforum.de/weiterbildung-automobil/future-of-buses). You can access the presentations and workshops at this parallel conference completely free of charge. Use this opportunity to engage in an exchange with leading specialists in the bus industry, which is faced with similar challenges to the truck industry.
