Picture this: Ready to scale at JSAE 2013

Last month, Intelligent Energy attended the Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan (JSAE) Annual Spring Congress in Yokohama City, Japan.

The spring congress is the society’s technical paper presentation event where automotive engineers and researchers present the results of their latest researches and developments. The event coincided with the Automotive Engineering Exposition and was attended by 4,500 specialists with as many as 500 technical papers presented.

Established in 1947, the society aims to “promote scientific culture, expand the industrial economy, and improve the quality of people’s lives by furthering the development of automobile science and technology.”

This year’s event witnessed an ever greater focus on electric vehicles (EV), hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHV), with every automotive showcasing their kinetic energy recovery systems.

The team was on hand to discuss recent successes, including those of SMILE FC, the joint venture between Intelligent Energy and Suzuki Motor Corporation, which earlier in the year, established a ready-to-scale production plant for its fuel cell systems in Yokohama, Japan
