International Congress : SIA POWERTRAIN & ENERGY // Rouen 2020

  • 3 & 4 June 2020
  • Parc des Expositions, Rouen - France

 

Dear Colleagues,

The requirement to address issues of global warming and oil independence is leading the automotive industry to explore simultaneously a wide range of competitive clean powertrain technologies in close connection with fuel and energy scenario development.

To evaluate the potential of each solution on GHG emissions, the scientific community and policy maker are pursuing a global system approach following a well-to-wheel basis and life cycle assessment. In this approach, energy production, distribution and usage in the vehicle all contribute to the overall CO2 emissions reduction potential. As a consequence, the powertrain development should take a comprehensive system approach including combustion, electrification and fuels to ensure sustainable energy and emissions. Low carbon technologies for long range vehicles open up new opportunities but there are still important challenges. Their cost remains a major challenge in order to achieve customer acceptance and ensure a successful transition towards low and zero emissions vehicles.

In this context, the organizing committee decided to enlarge the scope of the 32nd SIA Powertrain congress, to consider the complete propulsion solution within its energy framework with a specific focus on long range passenger cars and commercial vehicles. Therefore, this new edition is called SIA POWERTRAIN & ENERGY // Rouen 2020 and it will cover all the ongoing developments of highly efficient combustion engines, hybridization and battery & fuel cell electric propulsion. It will also address the energy framework and roadmap concerning renewable energy use in transportation. With the support of PFA - French Association of the Car Industry and the support of EVOLEN - French Association of Oil & Gas industry.

The last edition of SIA POWERTRAIN & ELECTRONICS conference in Paris on June 2019 was again a great success, with 770 participants from 17 countries, 63 scientific and technical presentations, a panel session on energy and a Round Table with the top-level representatives of OEMs and Tier1 companies.

Finally, on behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to invite all the powertrain engineering and scientific communities to submit abstracts on any of the related conference topics by the 4th of November 2019.

We look forward to welcoming  in Rouen on June 2020.
