Novel Electrification through Advanced Sustainable Technologies

Most people immediately think electric vehicles are green, but sadly that is not always true as they often use materials and designs that are less than sustainable. With over 128 million electric vehicles to be sold annually by 2041 this could create a huge problem, unless there is another way.

Over the past four years, Advanced Electric Machines (AEM) has been working with world-class academics, global vehicle manufacturers and leading industrial partners to deliver the most sustainable and highest performing solutions for electric vehicles, from passenger cars and trucks to tractors and aerospace.

AEM has manufactured a range of electric motors for these sectors that allow our customers to go faster and travel further, whilst remaining much greener than other technologies due to our elimination of environmentally damaging primary rare earth materials. We also remove copper, which means our motors are fully recyclable at end-of-life.

However, we haven’t stopped there.

AEM brings together partners from across the UK to collaborate on government-funded projects to develop this technology even further. From creating high-power, e-axle systems with Bentley Motors for their world-renowned luxury cars, to delivering breakthrough integrated solutions for the next-generation of electrified commercial vehicles with Tevva. AEM is even working alongside Hypromag to extract, recycle and reuse rare earth magnets that have already been disposed of to power our world record-holding aerospace technology.

In our session, AEM and our partners will introduce these exciting projects and the cutting-edge technologies they are creating that will lead the way for the electric vehicle market. We will hear from:

Peter Fleet, AEM, Chairman
Prof. James Widmer, AEM, CEO and Founder
David Thackray, Tevva, Sales and Marketing Director
Prof. Mark Johnson, University of Nottingham, Director of the EPSRC Centre for Power Electronics
Prof. Allan Walton, Hypromag, Founding Director
