About this event

(Following IMechE Shropshire Network AGM at 6:00pm) The presentation will describe the novel vehicle hybrid drive system that uses flywheel technology as an energy store in place of batteries. The system has been proven in motor sport and is now to be fitted to London buses to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Presented By GKN.



Reasons to attend

Learn about the innovative GKN system based on Formula One race technology developed in the UK. It will help increase the efficiency of every bus to which it is fitted by using less fuel and therefore reducing carbon emissions. This same technology helped Audi’s R18 e-tron win recently at Le Mans.
