Join us for a debate with experts from across the ecosystem to exchange views on whether Europe is doing enough – and, crucially, doing the right things – to enable a flourishing charging market
Please note the event will be only physical in Brussels, with no streaming planned. The event will take place under Chatham House rules.
The one and half hour conference, lasting until 16.30, will be followed by a networking reception until 18.00

The European Parliament’s Transport Committee is set to vote on its final report on the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Regulation (AFIR) in July. The vote will be crucial in determining Europe’s ambition in building up a comprehensive charging infrastructure network across Europe, safeguarding the business case of operators, and improving user experience. Europe needs to put in place the right conditions to charge the expected millions of EVs coming to its streets over the coming decades.

Questions addressed will include:

• Will the AFIR proposal strike the right balance on standardisation, interoperability and payment options?

• Are the targets ambitious enough?

• Is the AFIR fit for digital, data-driven business models?

• How does the AFIR fit into the wider “Fit for 55” package?

Our Speakers:

– Kai Tullius, Policy Officer B4, Sustainable and Intelligent Transport, DG MOVE, European Commission

– Koen Schröder, Policy & Business Development Manager, Benelux & Charging, Tesla

– Michelangelo Aveta, Advisor – Electromobility & Energy Efficiency – Electrification Lead, Eurelectric

– Glenn Cezanne, Head of Governmental Affairs, Brussels, CharIn e.V.

The two hours conference will be followed by a networking reception
