Powertrains, Fuels and Lubricants Digital Summit

September 28-30, 2021│ Online & On-Demand

Bridging the Future Mix of Internal Combustion Engines and EVs


With existing investments in internal combustion engine (ICE) development and infrastructure for petroleum-based fuels distribution already in place, when will the same be valid for a sustainable, all-electric transportation replacement system?  Several questions abound that the SAE 2021 Powertrains, Fuels & Lubricants (PF&L) Digital Summit will tackle, including consumer acceptance of electric vehicles (EV), the powertrain mix of the future between combustion engines and EVs, and energy storage systems.

The 2021 PF&L Digital Summit will provide a valuable opportunity for business and scientific professionals such as OEMs, researchers, engineers, academicians, and others worldwide to respond to these questions for various mobility scenarios.

As an attendee, you will hear about new and emerging technologies implemented to meet regulations to reducing emissions and boosting fuel economy while delivering the best powertrain performance. Our roster of keynotes, speakers, and panelists will also share the outlook on batteries and the industrialization capabilities of chemical storage media, such as hydrogen, synthetic gases, and liquid fuels.

Adding to the prodigious technical program, virtual networking opportunities for professionals associated with combustion technology, injection, fuels, exhaust & emissions control, engine downsizing, pressure boosting, hybrid powertrains, and several other developing technologies bring added and unique value to the program lineup.
 

Organizers are in the process of reviewing submitted manuscripts and presentations with the goal of providing you the most comprehensive look at the critical challenges and  solutions, as technology evolves.

Below is a tentative listing of topics under consideration. Final presentation selections will be complete by August 23, 2021.
