About the conference

As hybrid and electric passenger vehicles are becoming increasingly more mainstream, such fast-paced consumer adoption brings about operational challenges in meeting the needs of a very wide demographic of drivers. The architecture of the vehicles, components and infrastructure are just a few of the key issues faced by the industry.

HEVC 2018 will highlight the current solutions being sought to support the design and development of electric vehicles, and the infrastructure that is needed to keep the momentum going.

Practical application and innovative trends in theoretical research will be shared at this popular technical knowledge exchange forum.

This 2 day conference will show how the latest explorations and resolutions, in various stages of commercial use or phases of research, can:
  • Give insights into how new technologies could provide practical applications for industry
  • Discuss how using new innovative methods could solve business issues

Why attend?

  • HEVC is one of the only UK-based technical conferences specialising in electric vehicles
  • Benefit from content derived from a technical scope written by leading academia and industry responding to real world activity, and focusing on key trends and issues
  • Fantastic learning opportunities with a technically focused programme delivered by experts
  • Share real world experience and current practice including thought leadership keynote presentations
  • Delegates have the opportunity to receive the IET EV Code of Practice for Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment Installation included as part of their registration fee

"In just over 10 years since the first Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Conference in 2006, we really have moved from early adopters to the mainstream market and consumers can now choose plug-in models from virtually every major manufacturer.

"In the UK, Government has played an important role, with a range of incentives to encourage uptake, and there are now around 100,000 plug-in vehicles on the UK’s roads, supported by 75,000 home chargers and over 11,000 public charge points.

"The situation is changing at an unprecedented rate, and it’s a similar picture around the globe. Politicians recognise that plug-in vehicles offer a viable alternative to conventional powertrains to address pollution and air quality concerns and so growth rates will continue to rise.

"After a relatively slow start, uptake is now almost exponential and this is starting to create problems as we struggle to accommodate demand for both the vehicles and the necessary charging infrastructure.

"For the 7th Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Conference, the focus will be on the design and development of plug-in vehicles for mass market needs. We need to plan ahead and learn from shared experience, across a wide range of topics, to anticipate and counter problems before they occur. As a community, we’ve worked hard to stimulate interest, and now need to ensure that we’re not ‘a victim of our own success’.

"I look forward to meeting you at HEVC 2018 in London!"

What people say about HEVC

‘Excellent technical content of papers and variety. All current information and relevant to both academics and industry alike.’

‘The cross-disciplinary nature of the event made a refreshing change from events that are more commonly focussed on a narrow technical scope.’

‘The scope of presentations was excellent covering both technical, market and policy considerations.’

‘I highly recommend this event. The programme was well structured taking into account the inter-relevance from one session to another. The size of the conference was optimal in allowing speakers and delegates to be exposed to all the material which often is a downside in larger conferences running parallel sessions.’
Coventry University

‘The interaction with the authors was perfect during the breaks between the sessions. This can be useful to create new collaborations with universities and industrial experts.’
Politecnico Di Torino

Previous highlights

HEVC 2016 featured 35 technical peer-reviewed papers and 2 industry keynote presentations on the challenges of reducing design and operating costs of hybrid and electric vehicles.

Sessions ranged from management of batteries and thermal elements to power electronics and infrastructure design.

The conference was a great success with more than 80 hybrid and electric vehicle specialists and experts in attendance from 10 different countries.
