Charging Infrastructure for Electric Vehicles
Developing the Future of EV Mobility in Europe
10 – 11 June, 2021
Electrification and e-mobility solutions are key enablers for reducing CO2 emissions. E-mobility will play a key role in solving many of the challenges we face today with regard to energy use and urbanization.
As a clean, zero-emissions mode of transport, EVs are expected to gain popularity in the future. But at present, fully charging them is a time-consuming process that can take several hours using a household power supply, also the widespread belief is that the cars are too expensive. In addition, EVs are only able to drive short distances compared to gasoline-engine vehicles. Easily accessible charging infrastructure is a prerequisite for the transition to electric vehicles. There is still significant uncertainty as to when actual, large-scale adoption of electric vehicles will occur.
That two-day conference discussed today’s technologies and tomorrow’s solutions for smart charging, investment needs and business models for e-mobility, latest trends in e-mobility and charging and update on Charging Infrastructure Market.
The attendees had the opportunity to network with experts in the field while learning and sharing their experience.
Key topics were discussed:
· Charging Infrastructure Market: Update and Transformation
· Future trends and market considerations for EV fleet conversion
· How much chargers will the EU need & how can it bridge the gap?
· The grid market impact of EV charging and Vehicle-to-Grid
· Home charging for electric vehicles
· The need for the fast public infrastructure, economics of this as well as sustainable business model for EV charging
· Charging of commercial / logistic vehicles; and the challenges it has for charging infrastructure
· Electric heavy-duty trucks are here to stay and what that means for the energy sector
· DC Fast Charging, a pre-requisite for the mass transition to electric mobility
· V2G technology to provide stability and flexibility in the electric low voltage grid – use cases and business model
· Electric Ridesharing: Challenges and Opportunities
