Registration is now open for the inaugural New Power Progress Summit, which will be held May 26. The summit will be devoted to the fast-growing world of electrification, hybrids and new power technology for the global vehicle and equipment markets.

A top-level speaker line-up is being assembled by the editors of Diesel Progress for the event, which is aimed at anyone who wants the latest news, views and technology updates in the sectors of electrification, alternative technologies and power sources.

The free, two-hour virtual event will be held on Wednesday, May 26 at 3 p.m. U.K. time, 4 p.m. Central European time and 9 a.m. U.S. Central time.

A number of speakers have already been confirmed. They include:

Kimmo Rauma, vice president, Danfoss Power Solutions, who will speak on developments in electric and hybrid powertrain systems.

Tilo Huber, head of Product Line Construction Machinery Systems at ZF, who will cover eMobility solutions for compact equipment and the roadmap to electrification.

The Summit will also examine:

- The challenges of reaching zero emissions transport systems in an inner-city environment

- The latest developments in fuel cell technology.

- New developments in batteries and energy storage.

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.

“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.
