We are pleased to hold “2023 JSAE/SAE Powertrains, Energy and Lubricants International Meeting”.

Many countries and regions have declared their commitment to become carbon neutral (CN) by 2050. In order to realize a CN society, it is necessary to consider energy policy and industrial policy as a set. The automobile industry is one of the most influential industries.

In the automobile industry, the shift to electrification is progressing rapidly. Electrification is an important factor to realize CN, but it seems that various technological innovations are required without narrowing down the options at the present stage. For example, CN fuel, which is under consideration in the energy industry, is one of them. We can see a new world of CO2 reduction by combining Japan's high efficient engine/motor technology and CN fuel.

We hope that many engineers/researchers from all over the world will attend this conference, participate in deeply meaningful discussions and create new global research connections.

Aim

To achieve the goal of the Paris Agreement adopted at COP21 in 2015, namely to contain the average increase in the global temperature below 1.5°C, many countries and regions including developed countries have declared their commitment to become carbon neutral (CN) by 2050 and have taken action toward this goal. However, there is not an easy solution to becoming CN. It is essential to take multifaceted measures; for example, energy supply and use should be safe, stable, environmentally agreeable and economical, negative CO2 emission technologies including CO2 recovery should be spread, and social systems should be reformed to make society more efficient.

Aiming to realize a CN society by 2050, efforts toward the electrification of automobiles are expanding in the automotive industry; however, there are diverse demands on automobiles in terms of intended use of the vehicles, user-friendliness, local characteristics, economic efficiency and so on. It is important for hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and other internal combustion engine-powered vehicles to become CN vehicles, besides spreading zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs), including battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), so that automobiles can continue to contribute greatly to social development. Apart from powertrain technologies, it is also indispensable to accelerate the transition to a CN society by exploring more eco-friendly energy solutions such as CN fuel from a Well-to-Wheel (WtW) perspective, and to promote new synergy between automobiles and social systems as seen in the concepts of CASE (Connected, Autonomous, Shared & Service, and Electric) and MaaS (Mobility as a Service) while maintaining a balance between existing and new technologies with an eye on the future toward the year 2100.

In view of this situation, with the aim of discussing a wide range of trends and the latest technologies for the realization of CN, “Powertrains, Fuels and Lubricants International Meeting” has been renamed “Powertrains, Energy and Lubricants International Meeting”. "Technical Challenges for Carbon Neutral Society by 2050" is set as the theme of "2023 JSAE/SAE Powertrain, Energy and Lubricants International Meeting".

Keynote speeches (KS) and the Executive Panel Session (EPS) will inspire the participants to envision a future carbon neutral society from a broad, comprehensive perspective. The KS will cover topics from various global trends to realize a carbon neutral society by 2050, followed by the EPS where experts will discuss technological development in terms of four key elements needed to meet the demand by society for automobiles: “vehicle electrification”, “internal combustion engines”, “fuels and lubrications” and “zero impact emission“ aimed at 2050.

Specific challenges we currently face will also be intensively discussed from an expert’s point of view at technical workshops (TWS), helping to deepen and broaden participants’ understanding.

Based both on a broad comprehensive perspective as well as detailed estimates, the meeting is intended to serve as a good opportunity for all of us to consider the future reality of automobiles, energy and society in a carbon neutral society.
