Up to the sixtieth, automotive manufacturers didn’t worry about the cost of fuel. They had never heard of air pollution, and they had never thought about life cycle. Ease of operation with reduced cost maintenance costs meant everything back then. 


Times have changed. Nowadays, clean air mandates are driving the market to embrace new propulsion systems to substitute or to assist the internal combustion engine. 


Within the same commitment, the alarming increase of the emissions of greenhouse gases associated with the drain in time of fuel reserves make it vital the investigation and the development of renewable energy systems..


EVER’16 is intended to be a forum of specialists coming from both universities and industries, involved in R&D projects in the area of ecological vehicles or renewable energies or both. 


EVER2016 attendees will have the opportunity to share their scientific, technical, business and social experiences with other attendees coming from all over the world, through the presentation and the discussion of their recent works either at lecture or poster sessions.
