Monday, April 3, 2017, 10:00 am

Presenter: Dr. Bargende serves as Managing Director of the IVK, Universität Stuttgart, and Chairman of the Board of the FKFS, Research Institute for Automotive Engineering and Vehicle Engines, Stuttgart (FKFS) an Independent Non-Profit Research Foundation, founded in 1930.  Between Oct. 2007 - Mar. 2008, Dr. Bargende was on sabbatical at the Center for Automotive Research, OSU.

Dr. Bargende, Fellow of the Society of Automotive Engineers, has authored or co-authored more than 200 scientific publications on the subjects of Combustion, Thermodynamics, Gas Exchange, NVH, Mechanics, Modeling, Simulation and Control of Internal Combustion Engines and Hybridized Powertrains.  He has edited or co-authored several professional books (reference books, volumes, conference proceedings) as on the subject of Gasoline and Diesel Engines, and is an internationally recognized expert in these subjects.



What kind of powertrain technology will drive us

in Europe in 2030?

The main drivers:

Legal framework (CO2 emissions, pollutants, Test cycles, real driving emissions (RDE), driving restrictions in cities “blue sticker”) and infrastructure (fueling and charging)

Technical Impact
Potential for the further development of conventional and alternative power trains (Gasoline, Natural Gas and Diesel engines, HEV, BEV and FCELL)

Customer Impact
Global vs. national/regional/local customer demands
(emotional and rational buyers, demographic change, urban vs. rural areas)

The scope of technologies available in 2030 is known quite well, but not the "share” at which each of them will be in demand
