About HEVC08                            

Following the success of HEVC 06, this event is your opportunity to shape the future of Hybrid and Ecofriendly vehicles.
The key objective of the event is to raise awareness and stimulate debate on Hybrid and Eco-friendly vehicles, and through a combination of presentations and workshops, formulate future strategy.
Government, industry and academia must act together to develop a cohesive, long-term future strategy that effectively reduces vehicle emissions, and this is your chance to influence the debate.

Conference Themes

Papers are invited within the general area of Hybrid, Electric and Eco-friendly Vehicles. The event will be broad-ranging, and contributions on technology, strategy or policy are equally welcome. Successful authors, determined by peer review, will be invited to present.
