2020 is going to be a key year for the electromobility sector: the sales of electric cars are higher than ever and, in Europe, the charging infrastructure is growing at a steady pace, with 174.000 charging points in the continent and more than 20.000 fast chargers. The public awareness and interest in electromobility is strong and will play a substantial role in the decarbonisation of transport by 2050.
However lots more work needs to be done as both industry and policymakers, in Europe and across the world, need to push further to ensure the mass electrification of transport becomes a reality. In this context, AVERE will focus on communicating these issues, which will be the centre of our two flagship events taking place in 2020: EVS33 and AEC2020.
EVS33 is the thirty-third edition of the Electric Vehicle Symposium that will take place in Portland, Oregon, USA on June 14-17 2020. It will assemble global leaders from industry, government, and academia to explore and discuss the technical, policy, and market achievements—and challenges—in advancing the electrification of transportation.
These four days dedicated to electromobility aim to gather and boost the connections between different actors along the global value chain, including industry, policymakers and academia. It will assemble the largest and most diverse innovative electric drive technologies and products from around the world to promote the development of these technologies and consumer understanding. Therefore, highlighting the global policy leadership and initiatives for e-mobility.
The AVERE E-Mobility Conference 2020 (AEC2020), taking place in Brussels on the November 9-10 2020, is dedicated to our blueprint for the future of electromobility in Europe. The mobility ecosystem is set to evolve and change drastically in the coming five years with the increasing uptake of zero emission vehicles and smarter technologies giving consumers more control over their electricity consumption.
Therefore, putting clean and smart transport at the heart of the European Commission’s policy agenda will bring substantial benefits for European citizens and the economy. Electromobility is the most efficient solution to achieve carbon neutrality in Europe by 2050. AVERE asks European policymakers:
Let’s Support – industries in the transition to sustainable mobility,
Let’s Lead – the transition to zero emission,
Let’s Respond – to the increasing demand for electric vehicles,
Let’s Adapt – our cities to a more sustainable future.
We look forward to meeting you at our events this year and stay tuned for more news in the coming months.
