Small Powertrains and Energy Systems Technology Conference

October 31 - November 2, 2023 | Minneapolis, MN

Discover New and Emerging Small Powertrain Technologies

The same requirements for emission controls and fuel efficiency, and the push towards all electric propulsion seen in the light- and heavy-duty sectors, also holds true for the small engine industry. SAE’s Small Powertrains and Energy Systems Technology Conference (SETC) provides a much-needed forum to discuss these requirements and learn how small engine makers are applying emerging technologies, along with the results that have been achieved to date.

Join OEMs, suppliers, researchers, and engineers from around the world at SETC to discover and examine the most promising new technologies related to engine design, fuels, lubricants, combustion, and emissions control for the small engine segment.

Unlike competitive events, SETC addresses the common challenges/solutions to small powertrain development for a variety of applications:

  • ATVs
  • Outboard motors
  • Assisted bicycles
  • Agricultural machinery
  • Motorcycles
  • Snowmobiles
  • Unmanned vehicles
  • Lawn and garden equipment
  • Scooters
  • Recreational vehicles
  • Snowplows/blowers
  • Hand tools
  • Personal mobility vehicles
  • Utility vehicles
  • Portable power generators
  • And more
  • Watercraft
  • Power assist devices
  • Small and micro-combined heat and power systems
