Energy & Propulsion Conference & Exhibition

November 12-14, 2024 | Columbus, Ohio

Connect with Key Players in Propulsion and Powertrain

Join us at the Energy & Propulsion Conference & Exhibition in November

The 2024 Energy & Propulsion Conference & Exhibition (formerly known as Powertrains, Fuels & Lubricants) is where the most promising new mobility technologies and pathways to electric propulsion and fuel efficiency will be revealed. From November 12-14, 2024, join leading scientists and design engineers from OEMs, academia, supplier companies and beyond to connect, collaborate and explore how to move powertrain performance forward as investment in electrical vehicles (EVs) grows around the world.

No one-size-fits-all solution will work across applications. That's why Energy & Propulsion offers content for light-, medium-, and heavy-duty vehicles, as well as on-road mobile machinery. A broad scope of topics will be covered, with a focus on new and developing technologies designed to meet clean and sustainable powertrain performance standards and regulations. No stone will be left unturned: We’ll cover hybrids, fuel cells, synthetic fuels, innovative ICEs and other avant-garde powertrain systems, as well as their components.
