Our 4th and final keynote lecture of the day is from Dr. Chang Soo Kim (Head of Fuel Cell Research – Korean Institute of Energy).
Dr Kim is guiding us through the latest research on hydrogen fuel cells from Korea, including FCHEVs from Hyundai, infrastructure developments and static applications.
Our third keynote lecture is from Prof. Dr. techn. Christian Beidl, Head of Institute for Internal Combustion Engines and Powertrain Systems at Darmstadt University of Technology.
Prof. Beidl is discussing the challenges the automotive industry faces in the next 10-12 years.
Policy is an important topic for reducing emissions in the automotive industry. Our second keynote is from Dr. Dimitrios Savvidis (Directorate General of Climate Action – European Commission).
Dr Savvidis is introducing VECTO, a simulation tool for assessing emissions from heavy duty vehicles (HDVs).
Fuel cells are a big topic at this year’s conference. Our first keynote session is from Dr. Chris Dudfield – (CTO – Intelligent Energy).
Dr Dudfield is currently guiding us through Intelligent Energy’s experience developing hydrogen fuel cells over the past 17 years, their acheivements, and plans for the future.
Please note that timing and running order are still provisional and subject to change.
