Avere E-Mobility Conference 2018
About the Event
If you feel like a trip to the heart of the European Union is long overdue, here’s an idea. On October 17th & 18th, Brussels will host the largest and most influential e-mobility congress – Avere E-Mobility Conference (AEC2018).
AEC2018 is organised by AVERE and AVERE Belgium, who definitely know what they are about having organised several editions of EVS – the most important international Electric Vehicle Conference in the world.
So you see it’s not an event you can miss! In just two short days, you can listen to over 30 speakers from all around Europe, meet the most influential stakeholders in the industry, as well as share your ideas with EU’s key decision-makers. Among them you’ll find Maroš Šefčovič, Vice-President EU Commission; Dorothee Coucharrière, International Public Affairs Director Blue Solutions, Violeta Bulc, European Commissioner for Transport, Cristina Bu Secretary General EV Association or Zachary Shahan, Director at CleanTechnica, President at Important Media and many more!
2018 is especially important for the electrification movement since this year the EU is making some big e-mobility decisions that will shape the next decade. The conference will discuss both the current state of the e-mobility worldwide as well as future perspectives in the field. The speakers will talk about policy-making, business, industrial and scientific developments.
E-mobility is not just the traditional car industry; it extends far beyond. That’s why it’s important that the industry itself, the academia, and the policymakers join forces to make it happen. Day one is all about the big picture for e-mobility. That’s what the four plenary sessions held then will discuss. Researchers and business leaders will present all they know and have learnt about the EV ecosystem so far, including air pollution and impacts on health. During the last session concerns and policies can be discussed with EU Commissioner Violeta Bulc and other representatives of the government and the European Parliament.
Day two is equally busy and exciting! Several sessions will be held throughout the day in different halls. Among them you’ll find: E-mobility, multi-modal transport, and car sharing; The role of batteries in the e-mobility sector; Electrification and the energy sector; Energy efficiency and grid flexibility; The impact of connected solutions on the electromobility sector; New business models for charging infrastructure in cities; Challenges facing the light electric and e-bike sectors. You can also take a virtual Tour d’Europe showing different EV culture and challenges across Europe.
This day is also dedicated to showcasing various EU e-mobility projects, such as H2020, INTERREG and DG MOVE, and discussing how public-private partnerships can help developing mobility solutions in Europe. The last session of the conference will be an overall summary of what the participants have learnt during the two days and a final discussion about what the future holds for e-mobility in Europe.
