As the majority of world governments escalate their initiatives to decarbonize environments and economies, many OEM’s are making fuel technology breakthroughs with their new machinery and, in many cases, switching their focus from diesel to alternative fuels with the ultimate goal of reaching net zero-emissions.

The ‘Design and Development of Zero-Emission Off-Highway Machinery Hybrid Conference’ was established to give enterprises a platform to cement their presence in the industry, by exchanging opinions and networking with market leaders, and discussing current trends and upcoming challenges, in order to reduce their collective carbon footprints.

This cutting-edge hybrid conference will bring 150+ attendees from some of the leading global OEM’s, regulatory bodies, research institutes, investors and solution/service providing companies. The conference will focus on the latest developments and trends in electrification of Off-Highway Machinery, Regulations, Innovations in Li-ion battery packs, thermal management solutions, hydraulic systems, Electric Drivetrains, Fuel cell technology, and many more exciting and innovative topics.

Become a part of this unique event with great opportunities for both live and virtual meetings. It is our goal to provide a platform that reaches the largest possible audience and promotes effective networking for our attendees. We understand that companies have different travel policies and potential travel restrictions, so in order to prevent limitations on attendance, we will be holding this conference in a hybrid format.

We will be waiting for you in the beautiful city of Berlin on 19th – 20th May, 2022!
