Theme 2020:

Who’s in Charge?

The latest research & development initiatives in EV charging

Researchers, academics, applied researchers and practitioners are invited to join the Future of Charging Symposium on Tuesday 10 and Wednesday 11 March 2020. The fourth edition of this leading symposium offers a platform to present and discuss research and developments around EV charging. Experts share the latest scientific insights and practical results that support the very ambitious roll-out of charging infrastructure for EV until 2030.

The symposium will take place at HAN University of Applied Sciences in Arnhem. With more than 20 sessions and panels spanning 4 tracks we offer a nicely tuned program, centred around a simple and straightforward question: Who is in charge?

Who's in charge of...

  1. scaling up our charging infrastructure?
    In order to be prepared for the EV supply from 2020, public and private parties move towards more advanced collaborations to assure an efficient mass roll-out. What critical aspects need to be governed?

  2. the charging process and the energy flexibility?
    When it is part of multiple value chains and ‘owned’ by grid operators, car manufacturers, energy flex traders and smart homes?

  3. the data?
    Data is a critical asset for decision making, market predictions and an optimal EV driver experience: who owns the data, who assures the quality?

  4. charging commercial vehicles?
    Which charging infrastructure for electric commercial vehicles is needed to be able to deliver an attractive and economic Zero Emission logistics operation in 2030?
