AVERE organises and hosts webinars on key topics related to the mass deployment of electromobility as the way forward to zero-emissions transports.

To check out our upcoming webinars, please check out our calendar of events, here.

AVERE Webinar – The World Electric Vehicles Journal – 15 July 2020


The World Electric Vehicle Journal (WEVJ) is the first peer-reviewed international scientific journal that covers all studies related to battery, hybrid, and fuel cell electric vehicles comprehensively.

This webinar gave an overview of the latest research in these areas and link it to the EVS33 plans as well as introduce EVS34.

EAFO Webinar – News and Updates – 8 July 2020

This webinar presented the latest developments of the European Alternative Fuels Observatory (EAFO): following an introduction on its consortium, we discussed the latest news, NPF targets, new graphs, as well as the updates to the fuel station maps.

We also delved into the EAFO research and academic papers. The EAFO partner ICCT Europe, represented by Senior Researcher Dr. Sandra Wappelhorst, discussed the electric vehicle uptake and charging infrastructure deployment in Europe in light of the European Green Deal. Her presentation compared electric vehicle uptake and public charging infrastructure deployment.

Philippe Vangeel, Secretary general of AVERE, provided insights from a new study on the market for EV charging prices (presentation available here) , which was followed by an interactive Q&A session.

AVERE Webinar – Inductive charging: The future of the e-mobility sector? – 1 July 2020

Wireless charging holds great potential as it will make electric vehicles more autonomous and efficient, providing consumers with a clear choice when it comes to sustainability, efficiency and comfort.

What are the newest technologies for wireless charging? When are going to see new EV models equipped with these technologies on the market? What are the main barriers to overcome? Our webinar explored these and other questions through the insights of companies specialized in manufacturing these new models.

SEEV4-City Stakeholders Validation Webinar – How to make the charging infrastructure and local electricity grids future-proof? – 24 June 2020

During this webinar, that took place on June 24 2020 from 15.00 to 17.00, the participants had the opportunity to gain insights and have a say on the list of recommendations SEEV4-City partners propose for seamless integration of smart charging and V2X concepts to boost the uptake of the clean vehicles as well as harmonisation of energy and mobility plans.

The partners sought inputs and validation before and during the webinar as they hoped to contribute to making the charging infrastructure and associated aspects in your cities cheaper, more efficient and future-proof.

AVERE Webinar – Did You Know You Can Retrofit Your Car to Electric Today? – 17 June 2020

In this webinar we looked at how it is possible and convenient to retrofit fossil-fuel vehicles so to convert them to electric vehicles. This industry has developed to provide one more solution for consumers to have clean transportation without having to discard their existing car, making access to electric mobility easier and at times more convenient

We have asked to two top level companies working in this area to join us:

– Andreas Hager, CEO of e-troFit GmbH (starts at 00.02.14)/ presentation here
– Jesper Thuno, Managing Director of E-Cap Mobility DK ApS (starts at 00.36.25)

AEC2020 Launch Event – Will the COVID-19 crisis open the door to a more ambitious zero-emission transport agenda? – 3 June 2020

The event addressed how we can ensure the economic recovery is coupled with green solutions that help address climate change – for transport that means zero-emission mobility.

  • Where can we invest to get the greenest solutions available to citizens?
  • What infrastructure can we develop to help the mass uptake of electromobility?
  • How can regulation like AFID help?

The webinar also introduced the key topics of the upcoming AVERE E-mobility Conference 2020 in November, that will take place online (18 November) and in the European Parliament in Brussels (19 November).

SEEV4-City Webinar – What Policies Do We Need for the Future? – 20 May 2020



The last SEEV4-City webinar focused on regulatory and policy recommendations that will enable electromobility to be further boosted in Europe with the support of renewable energy sources and the smart and efficient use of energy infrastructures.

SEEV4-City Webinar – Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) and Smart Charging: the future symbiosis between emission-free transport and sustainable energy infrastructure – 6 May 2020

In recent years new technologies have been developed that can help maximize the synergies between electric vehicles and local renewable energy sources.

SEEV4-City explored these opportunities in practice as part of its approach to A Smarter Electricity Grid for People, Planet & Profit: the electricity grid is used as an energy buffer, on both a daily and a seasonal scale. Across Europe investments in renewable energy production and charging infrastructure for electric vehicles are growing – it is fundamental to see how they can work together.

SEEV4-City Webinar – Insights of the project: 6 pilot projects that pave the way for smart electric mobility solutions – 22 April 2020


The EU-financed project SEEV4-City is now coming to a close. What was the start point 5 years ago and where are we now? The pilot projects are the demonstration point of smart electric mobility solutions. How do we integrate renewable energy sources?

This webinar presents the lessons learned throughout the project’s execution of its six pilot projects.
