Eur. Ing. Neil Beloe, MSc.C.Eng. FIET is a senior researcher in Thermal Comfort at Jaguar Land Rover and will present the issues and research findings
The Low Carbon Vehicle Technology Project is a collaboration between leading automotive companies and research partners, revolutionising the way vehicles are powered and manufactured. The project concentrates on fifteen separate technical R&D workstreams, each working closely with selected SMEs in the West Midlands region.
The multi-million project is funded by Advantage West Midlands, the European Regional Development Fund and contribution from industry partners. The project will safeguard jobs in the region’s supply chain as businesses switch to low carbon opportunities and make the West Midlands a global centre of excellence in low carbon vehicle engineering.
As part of this project , research has been undertaken into the problems of providing a comfortable operating climate for the occupants in high-efficiency electric and hybrid vehicles, which tend to have less spare power available to heat or cool the occupants compared to equivalent internal-combustion engined vehicles.
Time: 18:30 for a 19:00 start. This event is free to attend and no booking is necessary.
