The last 8 months have bought unprecedented change, which has caused the SAE 2020 Powertrains, Fuel & Lubricants meeting to adopt a virtual format (Powertrains, Fuels and Lubricants Digital Summit). It is a final reminder that this event will take place next week (Tuesday 22 – Wednesday 23 September) and to encourage you to attend, especially in view of the fact that attendance is free.
The virtual event will consist of live events and pre-recorded material. The live events comprise three keynote presentations and three panel discussions. A large number of pre-recorded presentations will be available to view, both during the event and for some months afterwards.
The three keynotes are:
- Future Perspective of the Internal Combustion Engine
Speaker: Stefan Pischinger, FEV
- Heavy Duty Powertrains Towards 2040
Speaker: Staffan Lundgren, Volvo
- The Future of Road Transport: Implications of an Automated, Connected, Low-Carbon and Shared Mobility

And the three panel discussions are:
- Fuels & Lubricants
- General Powertrains
- Electrified Powertrains
