IDTechEx is staging the world’s first conference and exhibition on “Energy Independent Electric Vehicles” 27-28 September at the Technical University of Delft, Netherlands, where the most advanced solar racing cars and boats are made and key research is carried out.

Toyota is a keynote speaker and there are six masterclasses on the vehicles and key enabling technologies on 26 and 29 September. Sono Motors Germany presents on, “Sion: a Solar Car for Everyone”.

iat Central Research former Director Professor Pietro Perlo, now president of I-FEVS, presents on, “The Path Towards More And More Energy Independent Fully Electric Vehicles: Examples Of Safe-Secure-Efficient Road, Air And Water Vehicles”. This presentation addresses the developments of fully electric vehicles characterized by their efficiency, ability to recovery kinetic energy and harvest renewable energy.

Naval DC presents its many energy-independent electric boats. KiteNRG, Kitepower, TU Delft and International Windship Association cover proposed zero emission, energy-independent electric ships with solar decks and Airborne Wind Energy (AWE). Kitemill Norway reveals its drone-based AWE, an energy positive 30 kW to 100 kW EIV, capable of providing more consistent, more widely deployable wind power on land and sea.

Professor Farboud Khoshnoud of California State University says, “I shall introduce a new approach to inflated solar aerial vehicles, self-powered dynamic systems, bio-inspired micro air vehicles”. IDTechEx shares its market research on the huge upper-atmosphere EIV drones of Facebook, Airbus, Boeing, Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin.
