eVision – Accelerating Fleet Electrification

Online

One of the fastest ways to accelerate the transition to an electric mobility future is to scale the electrification of fleet vehicles. Many corporates and public sector entities are now taking advantage of the low total cost of ownership. But how do we raise awareness and unlock this huge opportunity?

This Eurelectric high-level event will strenghten political and industrial momentum for accelerating electric mobility and will explore EV market trends and sustainable growth acceleration strategies.  We will bring together amongst others: charging station operators and service providers, car manufacturers, industry captains, national and EU policy makers, academia and corporates to participate in inspiring and interactive sessions and enjoy a rich exhibition dedicated to the sector.

Main topics will include:

  • Necessary collaborations between sectors & regulators
  • Investment needs and business models for e-mobility
  • Acceleration and upscaling of fleet electrification
  • City planning
  • Role of customers in the transition to decarbonised electric mobility

eVision will mark also the launch of a joint Eurelectric-EY work on fleet electrification.

The project will look at EV fleets across different use-case segments as the catalyst for scaling up e-mobility in Europe, detailing the opportunities for innovators and the needed policies to overcome hurdles.

An event not to be missed, mark your calendars now!
