First Future Powertrain Conference to be held at National Motorcycle Museum

The National Motorcycle Museum is hosting the inaugural thought leader event for powertrains on 19th and 20th February. AVL Powertrain UK, the world’s largest privately owned powertrain company, and the Energy Storage Research Network (ESRN), managed by Imperial College London, have joined forces to launch the Future Powertrain Conference 2014 at the award-winning conference centre.

Three hundred delegates from both the engineering industry and relevant academia are expected to visit the Birmingham venue to discuss challenges and solutions facing the sector in the UK and internationally over the next 10 years.

Keynote speakers confirmed for the event include Michael Hurwitz from the department of transport and Bob Joyce from Jaguar Land Rover. There will also be sessions covering topics such as future power sources, hosted by representatives from organisations including Oxford University and Ford.

Lynda Grice, from LMG Events, who is organising the event on behalf of Future Powertrain Conference 2014, said, “The location and great transport connections of the National Motorcycle Museum make it the perfect venue for hosting the Future Powertrain Conference.”

Nick Hartland, director of the National Motorcycle Museum, said: “We are very excited to have such an innovative, new event being held at the museum. Powertrains are a current topic, particularly in Birmingham with the ongoing discussions regarding HS2. We look forward to hearing from industry leaders and learning more about the sector.”
