MATCOMP

MATCOMP is a biennial congress promoted by AEMAC that aims to promote and encourage research and use of composite materials at a national level. This congress constitutes the most important event for the scientific, academic and business community in the field of composite materials in Spain. In past editions, MATCOMP has managed to bring together about 200 speakers and experts and mobilize more than 300 professionals with a high level of innovation.

Materials Innovation at CTAG

CTAG is a Galician technology centre with international presence, composed by nearly 700 professionals and created in 2002 to offer innovative solutions for the automotive sector. One of its most important research lines are  the advanced materials, in which it has developed more than 50 projects, 25 of them within public research programs such as the European Horizon 2020 Program. This group of researchers, pioneers in Galicia in the approach of materials research results towards companies in the transport sector, was the first group of scientists from a private centre to lead a research project within the 7th European Research Program and is currently very involved in the transfer of knowledge based on material engineering between the automotive sector and aeronautics, two strategic sectors for Galicia.

 

Workshop on improving energy effciency in electric vehicles

Increasing the range of electric vehicles remains one of the biggest challenges in the automotive industry. On October 25th, JOSPEL will host a workshop where partners from three EU-funded projects – XERIC, OPTEMUS and JOSPEL – will present their latest innovations and technologies to improve energy efficiency in electric vehicles.

The workshop will take place at JOSPEL partner CTAG’s facilities in O Porriño, which is located in the Galicia region of Spain, and participation is FREE with online registration. The workshop will feature presentations from all three projects about the innovative technologies being applied to improve energy efficiency in electric vehicles, and it will also be possible to visit the JOSPEL demo lab.

Some of the key learning points of the workshop are:

  • Novel energy efficient EV climate system
  • Novel and innovative heating and cooling systems based on the use of Joule effect and Peltier cells respectively
  • Integrated thermal management system
  • Innovative battery pack with low energy consumption and thermal management elements
  • “Demo lab” with real users for validating the user feeling of heating and cooling.

Working together on energy management

Like JOSPEL, XERIC and OPTEMUS are EU-funded projects that have taken up the challenge of systematic energy management in electric vehicles based on the integration of energy efficient components and sub-systems, and the three projects are working together in sharing experiences and approaches to saving the challenge:

  • JOSPEL – Low energy passenger comfort systems based on the joule and peltier effects
  • XERIC – Innovative climate control system to extend the range of electric vehicles and improve comfort
  • OPTEMUS – Optimised energy management and use through a holistic, vehicle-occupant-centred approach

Who should attend?

The workshop will be particularly interesting to CEOs, Board Members, Department Heads, Project Managers, Engineers, and Scientists dealing with automotive interiors, automotive design, interior materials, R&D, thermal comfort, batteries, and electric vehicles, but it is open to anyone with an interest in innovative new technologies.

Practical information

The workshop will take on October 25th 2018 from 9.30 AM to 3.30 PM CET, and it will include lunch and the possibility of visiting the JOSPEL demo lab.
