The place to be for the powertrain community: 9th International Engine Congress

The next season of international congresses kicks off in Baden-Baden // The International Engine Congress as a knowledge forum and industry meeting place for engine development focuses on the entire system of engine technology: from energy generation to energy storage to energy conversion. With its unique concept, it brings together the current technological state of knowledge of the entire system of non-fossil fuels and internal combustion engines and their holistic evaluation with regard to climate protection // FVV will host a session on its new fuels study (IV/IVb)

Not only battery-electric but also thermodynamic powertrains are essential for the implementation of the mobility transition and the global reduction of CO2 emissions. Largely hybridised and powered by hydrogen and synthetic fuels from renewable sources, they make an important contribution both to the huge global fleet of over 1.3 billion vehicles and to new vehicles. The powertrains of new vehicle generations will also have to rely on this proven technology for decades to come in order to be able to meet the steadily increasing global mobility needs in a climate-friendly way.

The International Engine Congress as a knowledge forum and industry meeting place for engine development focuses on the entire system of engine technology: from energy generation to energy storage to energy conversion. With its unique concept, it brings together the current technological state of knowledge of the entire system of non-fossil fuels and internal combustion engines and their holistic evaluation with regard to climate protection. It is thus the central, practice-oriented platform for the exchange of knowledge and suitable systemic strategies for meeting the Paris and Glasgow climate targets.

Main topics

More than ever before, climate protection is at the center of the social, political, and industrial discussion in our economies. A major contribution must be made by abandoning fossil fuels, which are currently the world’s dominant source of energy, as quickly as possible. Hydrogen and synthetic fuels based on biomass and electricity offer excellent potential for quickly transferring the existing infrastructure, together with the billions of vehicles and machines that use internal combustion engines, to a defossilized world. In the mobility sector, the internal combustion engine running on non-fossil fuels is not in competition with all-electric drive systems.

FVV managing director Dietmar Goericke will host a session on the defossilisation of the transport sector in Europe - LCA (FVV Fuel Study IV/IVb).

The Advisory Board and all partners are looking forward to your participation.
