POWER2DRIVE EUROPE CONFERENCE
CHARGING INFRASTRUCTURE, TECHNOLOGICAL TRENDS AND BUSINESS MODELS IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Renewable energies, energy storage and e-mobility are mutually dependent. E-mobility is driving deployment of renewable energies. Without the upswing in electric power from renewable sources, the development of electric transportation concepts would not make environmental sense. Learn how these fields are converging on the market and in technological developments at the Power2Drive Conference, taking place at ICM – Internationales Congress Center München from June 19–20, 2018.
What innovative charging solutions already exist and what payment methods have proven effective? How can business models for e-mobility be implemented successfully? Where are there currently attractive markets for electric vehicles? And finally, how can electric vehicles and renewable energies be integrated into the power grid? The conference answers the most important questions relating to the opportunities and challenges arising from an energy transition in the transportation sector.
More and more entrepreneurs from outside of the industry are exploring business ideas for charging solutions and e-mobility. Housing associations are offering their renters electric cars as part of car sharing programs, and companies are electrifying their fleets and building their own charging infrastructure on their campuses. “Solutions for vehicle fleets and the associated charging infrastructure should become part of the grid,” says Holger Czuday, an industrial engineer, cluster manager for Automotive, Drive Technology/E-Mobility at Bayern Innovativ, Bayerische Gesellschaft für Innovation und Wissenstransfer mbH and the chairman of the conference committee for the Power2Drive Europe Conference. “This will result in additional market opportunities and business models for suppliers and users,” Czuday continues. Such a shift goes hand in hand with new payment options using apps or prepaid, EC or credit cards. These expanded options will feature in the session “Business Models and Billing Models.”
