The final speaker joining the presentation lineup is Julie Marshaus, engineering manager in the eMobility segment of Eaton Corp., who will discuss transmission technologies for medium- and heavy-duty electric vehicles. Marshaus has more than 18 years of experience working in hybrid and electrical vehicle technology and had led Eaton’s efforts in designing multi-speed transmissions for medium-duty and heavy-duty electric vehicles.

The other confirmed speakers are:

The New Power Progress Summit builds on the outstanding success of the first two Diesel Progress Summits which attracted hundreds of visitors from around the world.

The first Diesel Progress Summit attracted more than 300 delegates and was held in 2019 in Louisville, Kentucky. In 2020, the virtual Diesel Progress Summit attracted more than 1400 registrations from 77 countries. Currently, the New Power Progress Summit has more than 700 registrants.

“The New Power Progress Summit is a logical extension to the Diesel Progress Summit which has been a huge success and is now a fixture in the diaries of anyone working in the sectors which we cover,” said New Power Progress Editor Ian Cameron. “The New Power Progress Summit is an unmissable opportunity to hear the news and views of key industry leaders in this exciting and fast developing area.”

The third “in person” Diesel Progress Summit is scheduled for Oct. 26 in Chicago.
