BEYOND CONVENTIONAL POWERTRAIN: SVT 2015

Overview

Sustainable Vehicle Technologies (SVT) 2015 will examine the latest advances in propulsion and vehicle efficiency technologies with a view to understanding the latest developments of systems for carbon dioxide reduction over the entire vehicle lifecycle.

The conference develops the themes studied at the 2009 Low Carbon Vehicle conference and SVT 2012, which considered all areas of environmental pollution in addition to the goals for delivering low-carbon vehicles. SVT 2015 will build on these themes and consider the developments in vehicle technology that are shaping the latest propulsion systems.


As powertrain technologies and fuel sources diversify, measures of vehicle emissions taken at the tailpipe will not account for CO2 emissions and wider environmental impacts arising from raw material extraction, transportation, manufacture, power generation, use, maintenance and disposal. 

SVT 2015 will answer the burning questions:

- What are the appropriate techniques to assess these impacts? 

- How can we make sure we are measuring the right things and aiming at the right targets? 

- What influence will improved data in this area have on future powertrain architectures?


SVT 2015 will build on these themes and consider the developments in vehicle technology and innovative propulsion systems for the delivery of low-carbon vehicles.

Technologies that will be included in the conference cover conventional, hybridised and electric powertrains as well as alternative approaches and fuels, driver information systems.

Beyond Conventional Powertrain: SVT 2015 will cover three main topics:

Technologies:

The conference will have a powertrain focus, inviting contributions from a range of sectors including two-wheelers, passenger cars, light duty commercial, PSV, HGV, and non-road mobile machinery. Technologies to discuss include conventional, hybridised and electric powertrains, as well as alternative approaches and driver information systems.

We would love to hear contributions that document the interactions between vehicle and driver behaviour in the real world operating environment.

Development Methods:

We are looking for contributions detailing the effect of regulation changes on test and development methods, test equipment and instrumentation including Portable Emission Measurement Systems (PEMS) and laboratory representations of real world behaviour, for example the experiences of/tools used by OEMs to respond to EU6.2 in the vehicle development process. 

Future developments:

Widening the scope of emissions-type approval to consider full life-cycle assessment, life-cycle assessment of EVs and hybrids, this section will consider the recent research and future prospects of sustainable vehicle technology.

As powertrain technologies and fuel sources diversify, measures of vehicle emissions taken at the tailpipe will not account for CO2 emissions and wider environmental impacts arising from raw material extraction, transportation, manufacture, power generation, use, maintenance and disposal. We ask what are the appropriate techniques to assess these impacts, how can we make sure we are measuring the right things and aiming at the right targets and what influence will improved data in this area have on future powertrain architectures?
