IEEE-VPPC 2014 was held on October 2014 in Coimbra (UNESCO World Heritage), Portugal. Coimbra is located in the center of Portugal one hour from Oporto and two hours from Lisbon. It was our aim to provide an interesting forum about vehicle power and propulsion developing and promoting technologies to spread e-mobility everywhere

It included keynote papers by respected authors, technical sessions, tutorials, poster presentations and special sessions. Moreover, VPPC 2014 was organized in a carbon care philosophy as we try to reduce the conference ecological footprint. The CO2 emissions associated with the travel of attendees were compensated by funding carbon reduction projects
