EPE'20 ECCE Europe: Topics

Power electronics is at the heart of the energy transition constituting critical elements for ecology transition which will help to drive our world towards a new economic and social model, a model of sustainable development that renews our ways of consuming, producing, working, and living together to meet the major environmental challenges. Advanced power electronics, with considerations to energy savings, reduced footprint and smart digitalization, will provide a greater boost to renewable energy penetration, to sustainable mobility as well as to energy efficient buildings.

The EPE ECCE Europe conference is the largest in its field, attracting experts from numerous different countries every year to join in the discussions. With the objective to exchange and meet fellow professionals and academics, EPE ECCE Europe conference brings together researchers, engineers, etc. working at the forefront of power electronics technologies. For this type of event, where the future role of power electronics in this ecological revolution will be explored, the EPE ECCE Europe conference is one of the privileged places. There will be the opportunity to discuss a number of subjects during EPE ECCE Europe Lyon 2020, not only during the lecture and dialogue sessions of the conferences but also at the exhibition, industrial forums and tutorials…

On top of the tutorials, lecture and dialogue sessions and technical visits, the organising committees will propose several discussion sessions within the industrial forum as well as special sessions of power electronics related trends. The conference will specifically focus on the following challenging topics:

    • Tuesday, September 8th 2020: DC grid
    • Wednesday, September 9th 2020: E-mobility
    • Thursday, September 10th 2020: Energy digitalization
