ONE-DAY EVENT for R&D, Industry & End Users –
Increasing the range of electric vehicles remains one of the biggest challenges in the automotive industry. So 38 partners from 3 EU-funded projects organised a one-day event to share their insights on the latest trends and technologies to improve energy efficiency in electric vehicles.
One hundred participants got together during this informative day, on November 24, 2016, in Bologna, Italy. They learned what the European Commission is doing for electric mobility; they got a unique insight into the latest research and development on energy management in electric vehicles thanks to a great mix of top-notch speakers; they grew their network and established new contacts for collaborations thanks to a session of bilateral meetings.

Info about the organisers:
The EU-funded XERIC project took the lead and received support from 2 other EU-funded projects:
XERIC – Innovative climate-control system to extend the range of electric vehicles and improve comfort
JOSPEL – Low energy passenger comfort systems based on the joule and peltier effects
OPTEMUS – Optimised energy management and use (holistic vehicle-occupant-centred approach)
All 3 projects receive funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and are taking up the challenge of improving the operating range of electric vehicles.
