R&D Symposium 4
Charging & Infrastructure Symposium
Powering the Way to an Electric Future
29 January 2018 | Congress Centrum Mainz | Mainz, Germany
Electric vehicle acceptance will rely heavily on EV charge: time, range, ease and safety. In order for EVs to take over the automotive market, they must be safe and easy to charge. Charging must prove comparable to current gasoline fueling. There are two main hurdles in achieving this goal. The first is improving charging mechanisms and fast charging reliability. The second is providing the vital charging infrastructure that will allow for on-the-go charging ease.
The Charging & Infrastructure symposium will bring together top battery technologists and policy makers to discuss the goals and challenges in creating a stress-free and easy electric vehicle experience.
