10th AVL International Commercial Powertrain Conference
Roadmap to drive the future
The powertrain diversification
The 10th AVL ICPC will tackle the challenges that the commercial vehicle industry is facing globally. How will emission legislation, trend for electrification and digitalization affect the powertrains of the future?
We invite you to join us at the 10th AVL International Commercial Powertrain Conference – ICPC – a platform to discuss common challenges and opportunities of truck, agricultural and construction equipment OEMs, organized by AVL in cooperation with SAE International.
The conference will address the powertrain diversification the industry needs for meeting ever stringent environmental, legislative and economic targets in a fast-changing competitive environment.
The keynote session, with the roadmap to drive the future and the implications on logistics, environment, and economics sets the scene for the conference. Experts from the three powertrain industries will tell us what lies ahead in powertrain development, what can still be achieved with combustion engines and transmissions to reduce CO2, and what is the potential of vehicle and machine electrification to achieve zero emissions. Digitalization is the game changer, both on-road and off-road. The closing round table discussion will try to find answers if the commercial powertrain industry will continue with steady evolution or be threatened by disruption with severe implications on the companies’ success, job security and the economy.
We are once again looking forward to an exciting event, an opportunity to meet and network with many representatives of the leading companies of the three powertrain industries including their strong supplier base. ICPC is known for interesting discussions both in the conference and the social events.
