Electric-powered off-highway machines are now being deployed in increasing numbers around the world in the construction, mining, agricultural, forestry, and defence industries. With social and regulatory pressures to reduce emissions starting to be felt heavily and fewer concerns about costs and battery technologies, most OEMs are steadily moving towards electrification.

After the success of our event for the 2022 edition, we are extremely excited to announce the ‘2nd Design and Development of Zero-Emission Off-Highway Machinery Hybrid Conference’ #DZOM2023.

This conference was established to give enterprises a platform to cement their presence in the industry by exchanging their experience and opinions and by providing a space for solution providers to network with the OEMs and discuss the current trends and challenges to reduce their collective carbon footprint.

The focus will be on the latest developments and trends in the development of electric Off-Highway Machinery. Topics concerning innovations in batteries and charging infrastructure, emission regulations, implementation of sophisticated electric machines, thermal management solutions, hydraulic systems, electric drive-trains, E-drive components, hydrogen technologies and alternative fuel solutions, in addition to many more pertinent topics.

The target audience of our conference is senior engineers, R&D professionals, and top management from off-highway machinery-producing companies, research institutes, construction/mining companies, and regulatory bodies. The event will take place in Berlin, Germany, but it is our goal to provide a platform that reaches the largest possible audience and promotes effective networking for all our attendees. So, in order to prevent limitations on attendance, we will be holding this conference in a hybrid format.

Stay on top of your game by joining this platform. We welcome you to the beautiful city of Berlin on 11th-12th May 2023!
