EV Charging Infrastructure Forum

Porto, Portugal

In 2020, the 3rd Edition EV Charging Infrastructure Forum will be hosted by Porto, a fascinating and vibrant coastal city in northwest Portugal known not only for its stately bridges and port wine production but also for its advancement on installation of electric car charging stations and infrastructure development. The agenda of the meeting is built around trends and projections for e-mobility and charging infrastructures and services, challenges and developments in advanced car-sharing fleet management, lessons learnt and next steps for public charging, vehicle-to-grid integration, heavy duty e-mobility and smart charging of electric vehicles for fleet operators. This event will also help you understand the regulatory requirements and standards for building EV charge points in the major European countries. It will provide an opportunity to understand the role governments and private investors can play in building a charging infrastructure. Besides, it will provide insights into the expectations of leading EV manufacturers, fleet operators and public transport authorities.

The two-days EV Charging Infrastructure conference is packed with case studies and discussions and a practical site tour to Efacec Electric Mobility Factory.

EV Charging Infrastructure will bring together leading utilities, grid operators, regulators, investors, consultants, OEMs, charging equipment suppliers, and solutions providers to help shape the future of the e-mobility and car-sharing fleet management space in Europe. Join Vice Presidents, Presidents, CEO, Managing Directors, Electrification Directors, Global Business Development Directors, Heads of eMobility/Smart Mobility, Heads of Departments, Team/Project Leaders and other senior- and middle-level decision-makers in the discussion on the development of the robust charging infrastructure for electric vehicles.
