Our task is to keep the future open | The FVV creates science-based insights into forward technologies for climate neutrality and zero-impact emissions from sustainable energy conversion systems. We have a clear fact-based compass and we are always open to the best solution from a technical, economic and environmental point of view. In doing so, we organise open-topic research along the value chains, bringing together companies with the same interests regardless of size and economic power. We network bright minds and benefit from their knowledge and experience. We think ahead and open up paths to the world of tomorrow for young talents. This is how inner drive and passion give rise to science for a moving society.
We are the power behind all drives | In our innovation network, globally operating manufacturers of power systems, energy carriers, fuel cells, vehicle / aircraft / industrial engines and turbomachines, as well as their suppliers and development service providers, conduct together with universities and other research institutions pre-competitive, collective research on future technologies. The goal is to operate energy converters – engines, hybrid powertrains, turbines, compressors, turbochargers and fuel cells - with renewable energy sources in new, (partially) electrified, integrated and digitalised energy conversion systems in a more efficient, cleaner and sustainable way - to the benefit of society, climate, environment and industry. The FVV has invested almost 1 billion euros in 1,500 research projects since it was founded in 1956.
Since the two conferences “Ignition Systems” and “Knocking” complement each other very well, they will be held together for the first time in 2022.
In addition to the increasing electrification of vehicles, forecasts show a worldwide increase in the number of combustion engines being produced. With hybridization growing apace, at least 75 % of the 120 million new registrations expected in 2030 will be for vehicles based on combustion engines, most of them gasoline engines. At the same time increasingly stringent emissions legislation and the use of alternative fuels such as hydrogen present new challenges for ignition systems and combustion processes. The conference will therefore include new development approaches for gasoline engines in motorbike and passenger car use, hybrid concepts, on-off-highway and stationary energy applications.Further information
More stringent emission legislation and an increasing public interest for environmentally friendly propulsion concepts are dominating the research and development activities of engine manufacturers and suppliers. With the introduction of IMO TIER III emission limits for marine diesel engines must be drastically reduced. At the same time, substential regulations on the fuel sector are to be respected. To meet these challanges new technological concepts and control strategies are required.
The conference focusses on recent research and development results to comply with future emission limits as well as the discussion of current and prospective boundary conditions. In this context, researchers and engineers from engine manufacturers and suppliers as well as representatives from shipping companies, ship building industry, power plant operators and legislation are addressed by the symposium.Further information
Real-life challenges along the complete value chain of hydrogen and its downstream products will be the focus of the From Production to Application: The #P2X Conference. Key topics: electrolysis and other production processes for hydrogen, synthesis for e-fuels and power-to-liquid products such as ammonia and methanol, the application in heavy-duty transport, shipping and aviation or in the process industries steel & chemicals, safety-related issues, transport and logistics as well as the technical-economic evaluation of entire supply chains and their business cases in a national and international context.Further information
Industry and research are already working diligently on the mobility of tomorrow. Powertrains will have an increasing amount of electric and electronic components, and the technology requirements are rising quickly. Exchange ideas with international experts from leading companies and institutes – and catch up on the latest research results and gain insights into industrial practice. Take advantage of this opportunity to be a part of the E-MOTIVE Expert Forum with your presentation: 21-22 September 2022 | WolfsburgFurther information
Sustainability - a topic that we encounter more and more frequently and that is also gaining relevance in the development of mobility solutions of the future. More than ever, international cooperation is needed to meet all these challenges. The Aachen Colloquium Sustainable Mobility, which continues the long tradition of the Aachen Colloquium Automotive and Engine Technology, offers international experts from research and industry the opportunity for an intensive and exciting exchange. 31st Aachen Colloquium Sustainable Mobility | 10 to 12 October 2022Further information
The electrified journey: Developing sustainable products // Electrification of powertrains is the key to CO2-neutral mobility. The automotive industry is developing electrified powertrain systems and components at full speed. Product development processes must be adapted to customer expectations and legal requirements. With the state of the art of current development methods, we would like to show how the increasing complexity can be mastered and where there are still gaps. The congress offers you an in-depth insight into the subject matter through expert lectures, discussions and exhibition, as well as the opportunity for networking. Main topics: Energy storage and converters / electrical system components / transmissions and bearings / materials, coatings and lubricants / simulation / integrative development methodsFurther information
POWERTRAINS FOR RENEWABLE FUELS - ON THE PATH TO CO2-NEUTRAL MOBILITY
CO2-neutral eFuels and also CO2-free fuels such as H2 and NH3 have great potential for new powertrain developments. For the rapid reduction of CO2 emissions of the existing vehicle fleet, eFuels offer an impressive solution.
The conference Powertrains for Renewable Fuels is aimed at participants from industry, science and politics who are interested in challenges and solutions for CO2-neutral mobility using renewable fuels.
