2. International VDI Conference - Charging Infrastructure for Electromobility
- Learn how new developments in charging infrastructure affect OEMs, network operators, cities and cars around the world
- Exchange experiences and practices with experts from around the globe, covering a wide variety of fields in and around electromobility, energy production and charging infrastructure
- Profit from extensive networking opportunities during breaks and at the evening reception
- Take advantage of two international conferences with just one ticket and attend the parallel conference "Automotive Drives"
SAVE THE DATE - From November 6th to the 7th, 2019 the international VDI “Charging Infrastructure for Electromobility” conference is returning to Amsterdam! OEMs, operators and energy suppliers are working towards realizing a smart and universal charging infrastructure while facing increasingly complex end users expectations at the same time. The event gives relevant stakeholder groups from the e-mobility and charging infrastructure sector a platform and looks at how a charging network can be built intelligently, giving easy access to power and providing user friendly, interoperable charging solutions. Join intensive and stimulating discussions about the perspectives, challenges and opportunities presented by expanding charging infrastructure networks.
E-Mobility - The Road to the Future?
We are seeing more and more electric vehicles on our roads every day. But as opposed to their fossil fuel-powered cousins, the infrastructure needed to keep them on the road isn’t nearly as well developed. On the one hand, this means that energy providers are under pressure from drivers to expand their networks and adapt their business models to accommodate these new vehicles.
And on the other hand, automobile manufacturers are becoming dependent upon easy and efficient charging infrastructure to be able to sell their vehicles to consumers – or are entering the market themselves. The solutions to the challenges presented by the emergence of electric vehicles are diverse. All around the world, countries, cities, operators and OEMs are developing intelligent infrastructure to equip themselves for the future, while focusing on integrating charging stations with power grids.
At the 2nd VDI “Charging Infrastructure for Electromobility” conference, international experts from OEMs, energy suppliers and operators will share their experiences and discuss the most pressing challenges as well as future opportunities and emerging business models.
Networking is Key
Extra benefit for our participants: Register for the “Charging Infrastructure for Electromobility” conference and visit the parallel conference "Automotive Drives" free of charge. Both events take place at the same venue and participants are invited to listen to presentations from both agendas!
Connect with experts, business partners, specialists and investors from the international automotive energy industry during coffe breaks and discussion rounds. Join us at the evening get-together in a relaxed atmosphere, with food and drinks. Use these various networking opportunities for interesting discussions and do not miss out on this international event in Amsterdam!
