Conference - The electrification of land transport: a inevitable trend for what environmental and economical impacts?
31 March 2020  ·  Paris, France

Title The electrification of land transport: a inevitable trend for what environments and economical impacts? 
Dates 31 March 2020
Location Paris, France
Organised by SIA


This cycle of conferences is organized each year, in partnership with the National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts, the IFP School, Sorbonne University, and the Society of Automobile Engineers of Romania.

It is aimed at engineers, technicians, researchers and students interested in the evolution of techniques to reduce energy consumption and polluting emissions from engines.


The land transport sector, a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, aims to drastically reduce its emissions, under the impetus of measures and constraints imposed in particular by the European Commission (target at 95 gCO 2 / km from 2020, then an additional 37.5% reduction by 2030). To achieve these ambitious objectives, this sector therefore turns massively to all electrified solutions (hybrid vehicles, plug-in hybrid vehicles, electric vehicles) with high potential for reducing emissions.

 However, this strong and lasting trend which is engaging the transport sector in a profound transformation is not without raising several complex questions. What will be the real environmental impact of these different solutions in different use cases? What will be the economic impact of these different solutions for use?

 This presentation aims to provide elements of reflection and response to this inevitable trend in the sector, in particular by studying different applications on several concrete cases of use by 2030.

Reception will start at 6 p.m.

The conference will start at 6.30 p.m. sharp .
