In addition to hearing a powerful line up of 24 presenters over two event days, attendees took advantage of the active atmosphere where impactful conversations carried on throughout the entire event. Breakout networking sessions, a full exhibit hall, and a relaxed evening reception promoted the exchange of ideas and helped set the stage for future meetings, discussions and business collaborations.

Planning for future fuel system and energy storage conferences (USA and China) are already underway and we welcome key companies to join us, participate, and lead the conference with discussions and showcases of key technologies and developments shaping our industry.

Additional details for the North American conference will be shared soon.
