Our task is to keep the future open | The FVV creates knowledge-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 technological progress.
We are prime movers | 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.
The technological transformation in individual mobility on the basis of regenerative primary energy requires an intensified technical exchange of ideas between leading representatives of the automotive and energy industry on the one hand and science and politics on the other. For that reason, this congress will focus on topics that not only describe the change in vehicle powertrains, but also present technological solutions in the associated infrastructure, including the provision of primary energy. Discussions will concentrate on political framework conditions as well as on systemic innovations for the future and digital solutions.16th International MTZ Congress on Future Powertrains | Shaping the future open to all technologiesFurther 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.

Europe is the largest factory of knowledge, ideas and innovation in the world: Around one-third of the global production of know-how and innovative products comes from EU engineers and researchers. Cross-border cooperation unites the best minds and ideas. It makes the difference: globalisation - climate-neutral economy - energy transition in transport - mobility of tomorrow. These are just a few examples of the tasks of the future that need to be adressed - together with our members and partners in Europe and the world.
