Powertrains and Energy Systems of Tomorrow 2022

10-05-2022 – 11-05-2022 – Berlin or virtually via live stream

Call for Papers

Climate protection plays a prominent role in the context of the UN sustainability goals. The focus in particular is on the defossilization of energy systems and transportation, with a move towards solutions that are based on regenerative electricity. There is a need to redefine the generation, processing, and distribution of energy, as well as its use and conversion. We have to act quickly, sustainably, and across different systems, with an approach that is open to all technologies. This technological exchange of ideas among leading representatives of the automotive industry, energy companies, and power grid operators is consistently emphasized in this joint congress.

The aim is to find a global powertrain mix that can systemically address the challenge of a sustainable and secure supply and distribution of energy. I would like to invite you to play an active role in the 16th International MTZ Congress “Powertrains and Energy Systems of Tomorrow” by presenting a paper. Details on submitting your paper can be found below in this Call for Papers.

After the congress, your paper will be published as part of the congress proceedings at Springer Vieweg and on the online platforms Springer Link and Springer Professional.
