Broadening The E-Mobility Knowledge Base

  • Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Conference returns to Novi, MI, September 12-14, 2017
  • Leading OEMs and Tier 1s confirmed, including Ford, Mercedes-Benz, General Motors, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Hyundai and Toyota.
  • New for 2017: Pre-Conference Workshops delve further into complex H/EV technology

Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Conference announced a brand-new addition for 2017; the pre-conference workshops taking place on Monday 11 September. The morning workshop will cover ‘Examining the Evolution of EV Fast Charging and the Impact on EV Design’, while workshop two in the afternoon will cover ‘Testing and Simulation for Hybrid and EV Vehicles’. Plenty of hands-on experience is brought to bear during this great new contribution and it’s an ideal prelude to the week’s H/EV events and discussions.

The  Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Conference taking place September 12-14, 2017 in Novi Michigan will be an unmissable chance for all those involved in e-mobility materials, markets, systems, vehicles and strategies to come together as natural partners in what is looking like a record-breaking event in this industry’s North American home and annual showcase. This is a series of presentations that draws in, and always impresses, top names in the H/EV community. Nissan North America Director Bradley Smith, who remarked right after the previous edition, “The conference is fantastic, a great forum for exchange of ideas, understanding viewpoints from others and meeting new people”.

This world-renowned forum continues to enlighten and advance thinking in every critical aspect of the business. Some of the lead topics this year will be H/EV future market trends; implications of autonomous vehicles for the EV automotive supply chain; next-generation powertrain technologies; 48V systems and components for mild hybrids; and the crucial area of thermal management in EVs.

As one delegate neatly summed it up last year, “you have panels with really qualified, really strong people bringing thought leadership, bringing that discussion and interacting and sharing opinions.” Well, 2017 will be no exception and, in addition to CEOs, CTOs and leading researchers and academics, sessions will be led by those responsible for developing advanced vehicular systems, vehicle fleet executives, powertrain innovators, e-mobility strategists, and power and propulsion architecture designers. This year’s conference features more than 150 speakers from global leaders including Ford Motor Company, Volvo, Delphi, Airbus Group Innovations, General Motors, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Proterra, Valeo, Volkswagen Research Group, Toyota, and Karma Automotive.

This is an exceptional opportunity to take on board the latest developments in electric vehicle technology and hear up-to-the-minute views on ground-breaking, commercially viable technologies. Delegates from every sector and every part of the supply chain will benefit from being part of North America’s premier networking event in this industry, and at each turn will gain invaluable insights from leading professionals that will boost business performance and improve every company’s ROI.

With an expected 750+ delegates, the conference brings together people from all sides of the industry, this conference offers everyone far more than simply presentation sessions. Delegates participate fully in the whole experience, with on-stage interviews with global directors, the much-anticipated Leaders Debate, panel discussions, morning and afternoon networking refreshment break-outs, networking lunches, and post-session receptions in the early evenings. This really is the complete conference package.
