COMPETITION OF ENERGY CARRIERS

IMPACT ON THE PROPULSION SYSTEM

In the future, it will be increasingly important to include a comprehensive view of energy production and delivery in both portfolio planning and powertrain development. The choice of energy carrier and the interactions between the areas well-to-tank (production, storage, transport and distribution) and tank-to-wheel (storage and energy conversion in the vehicle) result in decisive impulses for development with respect to a sustainable reduction of CO2 and pollutant emission. The complex competition between energy carriers thus has a significant influence on the competition of powertrain concepts. The variety of combustion engine based powertrain concepts, BEV and FCEV will presumably remain for some time to come. In this respect, renewable energies are faced with the particular challenge of continuous availability. This means that we increasingly find ourselves in a transition from a scarcity of energy resources to a limitation in energy storage capacities.

The conference will focus on three thematic blocks:

  • Production, storage, transport/distribution of energy carriers
  • Energy storage media in the vehicle
  • The main focus will be laid on the consequences for the powertrain portfolio

Welcome Reception

WELCOME RECEPTION IN THE GARDEN OF ENCOUNTER AT AVL HEADQUARTERS
 

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 5th, 2019

As part of the 31st International AVL Conference “Engine & Environment”, the welcome reception  on the eve of the conference will once again be one of the highlights. In 2019, you will have the  opportunity to make your first contacts in the Garden of Encounter at AVL Headquarters. In addition to a culinary and musical accompaniment, you can take a look behind the scenes here. On guided tours through AVL, you will learn more about important technological developments. So, look  forward to a fascinating, exciting and innovative start of the conference.


17:00 Welcome Reception

 


Social Evening

THURSDAY, JUNE 6th, 2019

Orangerie
The classicist building, built in 1842 in the middle of Graz Castle Garden, originally served to overwinter tropical plants. Already in the 19th century the Orangerie, supplemented with temporary event tents, was also used for parties and balls.


Alte Universität Graz
The Graz University was founded in the time when the  Jesuits shaped the spiritual, religious and cultural life in Graz. With the adaptation of the Alte Universität Graz, a model example for the revitalization of a historically valuable building fabric has emerged, which is of outstanding importance precisely because of its location in the ensemble of the city crown of Graz.


19:30 Aperitifs at the Orangerie followed by an evening walk to the AVL Social Evening at the Alte Universität Graz

Partner's Program

THURSDAY, JUNE 6th, 2019

In the rolling hills of western Styria is the idyllic place Piber. Surrounded by lush meadows and green forests opens up  the home of Europe’s oldest  cultural horse breed in front  of a fantastic backdrop. As  the only state stud in Austria  Piber has the task to breed those Lipizzaner stallions,  which appear in the world- famous Spanish Riding School  in Vienna. After the guided tour and a lunch in the Café Caballero, the St. Barbara Church designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser will be visited.

Meeting point: 09:00 Helmut-List-Halle Expected End: 17:00

With sufficient demand: June 7th, 2019, 3-hour Graz sightseeing tour
