How to transform the energy and transport system in the long term while protecting the climate and environment effectively? FVV looks back at the 2020 Autumn Conference

The Research Association for Internal Combustion Engines (FVV) holds its first completely digital conference // Dr. David Bothe, Frontier Economics, talked about the latest orientation study of the FVV // Alternative fuels and new combustion technologies: FVV strengthens hydrogen research

The FVV information sessions are important meetings for the industry to get briefed on the latest results of Industrial Collective Research (IGF) on combustion engines (internal combustion engines, hybrids, turbomachinery) and fuel cells. Due to the current pandemic, the FVV had invited to a completely digital conference:

  • FVV Information Sessions | Interim and final reports on FVV research projects (21 to 24 September 2020)
  • Presentation of the FVV orientation study on life-cycle analyses in the mobility sector (25 September 2020)
  • FVV Planing Groups Sessions | Discussion of the new research programme (28 September to 01 October 2020)

We have summarised the main points in a brief conference report:

How to transform the energy and transport system in the long term while protecting the climate and environment effectively?

The transformation of global energy and transport systems in the direction of renewable energy sources requires a reliable scientific basis, accepted by all, for a complete ›cradle-to-grave‹ assessment of all climate target compliant technologies. In doing so, the complete life-cycle balance of energy carriers, energy storage systems and energy converters must always be considered, and a holistic comparison of the energy efficiency of different powertrain alternatives along the entire value chain is also important. Because protecting both the climate as well as the environment requires a wide range of options.
