The awareness that the electrification of automotive powertrains can only develop in an evolutionary manner has ensured that internal combustion engines continue to hold the pole position in the context of low-emissions mobility // The "International Engine Congress" focuses not only on approaching the internal combustion engine comprehensively and systematically, but also on powertrain electrification // By closely integrating passenger-car and commercial-vehicle engine technologies, the congress promotes the exchange of best practices // A dedicated series of talks addressing alternative fuels round out the content.
Are you an expert in one of the fields mentioned under the main topics "passenger car / commercial vehicle engine technology" and "new / alternative fuels"? Then please submit a paper and help us to make this congress a successful event.
Climate protection targets and air quality regulations are changing our mobility. Europe has agreed on a further reduction in CO2 limits by 2030. Within the existing system of CO2 targets, these limits can only be achieved by having a high proportion of electric vehicles. Powertrain electrifi cation is an approach that can cover only part of our transportation and mobility needs. National and international markets require a multi-track approach. The International Engine Congress in Baden-Baden demonstrated once again in 2019 that carbon-neutral fuels will be an indispensable component of our future mobility. The core of this complementary solution is the consistent consideration of the complete system of internal combustion engines and synthetic fuels.
The 7th International Engine Congress on 18 and 19 February 2020 in Baden-Baden will focus on this approach. The framework will again consist of three proven strands of presentations in passenger car and commercial vehicle engine technology as well as innovative fuels. This will not only ensure the necessary technical depth. By crosslinking all three thematic strands, we will also continue to further advance a systemic perspective of internal combustion engines and fuels and to fi nd additional potentials. This combination is unique worldwide and differentiates the Engine Congress in Baden-Baden from other such events in the industry.
The organisers – ATZlive und VDI Wissensforum – look forward to hearing your proposals and discussing your ideas!
