Virtual Summit. Ten Webinars. Two Days.

Can’t attend a session live? No problem. Register anyway, and we’ll send you a link to the slides and a video of each webinar after it has finished.

The global market for fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) is currently in its infancy, with fewer than 15,000 units sold each year. However, FCEVs have the potential to outperform BEVs and traditional ICE vehicles in some applications, so hydrogen and fuel cell technology look set to play a significant part in shaping the future of mobility.

This virtual summit will bring together the world’s leading experts to help you understand the technologies and trends that are shaping the evolution of FCEVs.

By registering, you’ll gain free access to all ten webinars, each of which will feature a presentation followed by a question and answer session. We’ll keep you informed of the webinar topics and presenters as and when they are confirmed, and you’ll also receive the slides and a video recording after each webinar has finished.

A MULTI-FACETED APPROACH TO ACCELERATING FUEL CELL DEVELOPMENT TIMES
Time: 4am Detroit | 10am Stuttgart | 1.30pm Mumbai | 5pm Tokyo

Fuel cells look set to play a critical part in the global effort to reduce CO2 emissions, and stakeholders are working hard to bring the technology to market in the shortest possible time.

In this session, AVL’s Emre Kural, Leo Xenakis, and Tomas Dehne outline a multi-faceted approach to fuel cell development, which increases efficiency by enabling an optimal balance of physical and virtualized testing and validation.

Key topics and takeaways:

  • How to reduce physical testing time by up to 80% with the latest fuel cell testing methodologies
  • Understand how system modelling can reduce the number of expensive prototypes
  • How to combine physical testing with virtualized components to optimize the whole system, even when the latter are not available
  • How to optimize overall workflow to make the best use of physical and virtualized resources

THE MARKET PRODUCT APPROACH: COST-EFFICIENT, STANDARDIZED BOP COMPONENTS FOR PEM FUEL CELL SYSTEMS
Time: 11am Detroit | 5pm Stuttgart | 8.30pm Mumbai | 12am Tokyo (+1 day)

PEM fuel cell systems require significant cost reduction for wide-spread market penetration.

In this 60-minute session, Dr. Michael Harenbrock of MANN+HUMMEL demonstrates a market product approach for BoP components in the cathode air path and cooling loop. In this approach, functional core elements are tailored for the operating requirements in defined power classes, with flexibility in connection and fixation.

Key topics and takeaways:

  • Defining power classes leads to a specific set of operating conditions as a basis for product standardization
  • Examples are products for the cathode air path, e.g. air filters, water separators, and silencers, and in the cooling loop, e.g. ion exchange filters and coolant particle filters
  • This approach reduces project-specific tooling cost and development time
  • The products can be ordered off-the-shelf for fast supply and testing
