automotiveEV will be addressing both current and future challenges - split into themed sessions and knowledge hubs tackling the most important aspects of EV development. Each session has three to four speakers, who will deliver short focused keynotes. The speakers will then be guided by a moderator for a panel with Q&A to close the session, allowing both the speakers and the audience to get involved.

And in case that’s not enough, we will also have some new technologies and new EV’s on display, for attendees to take a close look at!

Day One

Future Cities – The Role of Transport
Setting the scene for zero carbon mobility and the role of EV. Market development and adoption analysis. The role of government in developing effective strategies and legislation to support the shift to clean, sustainable transportation. Also, EV myth-busting, sustainable energy and the grid.

Investing in the future
Taking a wider look at investment across the sector. From government funded initiatives -both local and national. Capital sourcing for Start-ups and Scale-ups. Joint industry projects and collaborations from OEM’s and Big Energy - to the role of the finance and banking sector. 

EV Charging and Infrastructure
Just what do we need in regards to supportive EV infrastructure? Addressing the state of play, what is currently and also soon-to-be available. What kind, where and how many chargers do we actually need? How do we best develop and future proof our networks?

Transport & Mobility Solutions
A world of possibilities awaits our future mobility needs. From eScooters, to single and twin seat city EV’s, from ridesharing and MaaS to connected and autonomous – just how will all of these new modes of transport change current unsustainable urban mobility trends? 

EV Fleet, Leasing & Retail
As the primary drivers of new vehicle registrations - both fleet & leasing play a significant role in the widescale adoption of EV’s, not to mention their role in feeding the future used car market. And with regards to EV retail, is it just a case of supply & demand – or is there more at play?

Day Two

State of the Industry
This session will include analysis of both the global and local electric vehicle industry. Addressing investment and market potential, both governmental and industrial development strategies discussed. Going forward, what additional infrastructure will we need?

Battery
All things battery, from the basic building blocks of cells and batteries, to the development of sustainable, reusable and recyclable systems. Looking at both challenges and opportunities within materials sourcing, manufacturing and supply chain - the safe development, storage, transit, lifecycle and disposal of battery systems and materials.

Powertrain
Addressing modern propulsion systems: this session asks - what is being developed, and where are new advances, technologies and efficiencies being found? What changes can we expect to see in the next few years – a future of incremental efficiencies or a revolution in the making? From Lithium-ion, to Hydrogen Fuel Cell, biofuels and more.

Supply Chain
From hazardous materials logistics, including large-scale Lithium-ion battery shipments – to Finished Vehicles, Fleet, retail and after-market, where are the main challenges and opportunities? In regards to sustainability, just what EV solutions are being developed and implemented to the Last-mile delivery sector?

Leaders Insights
Leading lights from across the industry, discuss elements from across the days topics and up-coming developments. Asking what does the future hold for the automotiveEV sector as a whole? What new technologies are being developed and invested in? Are we in a good position with maintaining and developing specialist skills within such a fast-changing industry? and much more…
