EV Charging Infrastructure Forum

February 21-22, 2023- Berlin, Germany

About The Event

The deployment charging infrastructure is the prerequisite for the spread of electric vehicles. A well-established charging network increases vehicle miles using electricity, relieves range anxiety and reduces inconvenience concerning charging process. EVs are visualized to dominate the future mobility market in the Europe. However, a robust charging infrastructure, necessary to make e-mobility a complete reality, is seen as lagging behind requirements.

The discrepancy in the development of EVs and its charging infrastructure is being recognized across Europe. V2G (vehicle to grid) applications are also evolving at a great pace. The fundamental issues being considered, thus, revolve around where to charge the EVs, who will build the charging infrastructure, and whether electricity grids or fast- or ultra-fast charging network will be ready for the envisioned EV growth.

The growth of the electric vehicle market continues to play a pivotal role in the decarbonisation of the transport sector and in achieving the government's plan to get to nearly 1 million electric vehicles by 2030.

The EV industry is growing rapidly around the world, especially in China and the United States. The EV charging industry is a dynamic industry with a wide range of applications. Government initiatives of several countries around the world play a vital role in the development of electric vehicle charging stations.

In the next decade, the number of electric vehicles (EVs) on our roads will likely rise substantially, and we believe the bulk of the charging of these vehicles will take place at home. But readily accessible charging away from one's home (or one's workplace) will also be key to support EV growth.

According to Markets and Markets, the global electric vehicle charging station market size is projected to grow from 2,115 thousand units in 2020 to 30,758 thousand units by 2027, indicating a paradigm shift from conventional vehicles to electric vehicles. Developing adequate EV Charging infrastructure to cater to the rising demand for EVs on the road is the need of the hour.

Government initiatives to drive the adoption of electric vehicles and associated infrastructure, rising demand for electric vehicle fast-charging infrastructure, increasing prevalence of range anxiety, and increasing deployment of EVs by shared mobility operators are the major factors supporting the growth of the market. Increasing R&D in V2G technology, increasing adoption of electric mobility in emerging economies, and growing deployment of charging stations by retail MNCs provide significant growth opportunities for market players.

While charging technology has been evolving at a faster pace, electrical infrastructure development across cities has remained a challenge. The European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA) recently reported that at least 2.8 million electric charge points will be needed across the EU by 2030, a 20-fold increase needed to support the upcoming tide of electric vehicles over the next decade

This EV Charging Infrastructure 2022 event is set to become the world's leading conference exclusively for the automotive and electrical power industry, to meet and collaborate with a large array of charge point developers and policymakers, to examine new developments in electrical infrastructure and charge point technologies and address how the industry plans to support the growing use of electric vehicles.

This event will bring together industry experts and decision-makers responsible for EV charging infrastructure and all industry stakeholders across the automotive and electrical industries to network and build cross-market relationships, discuss the current state of smart charging and V2G solutions, explore new technologies and innovations addressing the real challenges of charging infrastructure. The programme will focus on what the 2030 challenges will mean for the EV ecosystem and how we could move towards a charging infrastructure that works for the consumer, system and energy transition.

EV Charging Infrastructure 2022 will position itself as the leading premier events for the global electric vehicle sector. With its interactive format of panel discussions, presentations, open discussion allowing for engaging Q&A, and structured business networking opportunities.
