EV Infrastructure Summit

Meet the buyers and operators of EV charging networks from around Europe


3 - 4 Jul 2018
London, UK

2019 Event

The only event in Europe designed around cities, local authorities, workplaces and commercial carpark owners and operators

Europe’s goal of 8 million EVs by the end of 2020 needs rapid action and investment if it is going to come to fruition. Transport has overtaken energy generation as the biggest source of emissions in Europe and recent scandals have highlighted the need for a new approach to transport built on low-carbon generation and lower emissions vehicles.

Consumer hope for electric vehicles is high: 37.8% of UK respondents to a recent 2,000-person OVO survey expect electric vehicles to become mainstream before many other new consumer technologies. Responses are similar in Europe with a recent survey conducted by E.On showing almost 50% of 8,000 respondents think that over the next decade, there will be more electric cars then vehicles with combustion engines. The bullishness isn’t just coming from consumers; BNEF forecast 530 million EVs by 2040 and even oil giant, BP forecasts 300 million.

Insurance company, Axa’s UK CEO has been vocal about the benefits of EVs to health, the economy and the efficiencies that autonomous vehicles could bring to economies such as lowered congestion and more convenient transport for less able-bodied consumers.

However, the persistent hurdle that customers cite is (56%) access to public charging points and availability of vehicles at a reasonable cost. This so-called "range anxiety" is not going away and responsibility for providing the needed infrastructure is increasingly being shunted to cash-strapped local authorities and cities. However, this extra responsibility comes with opportunity for public and private sector beneficiaries alike. 

Fundamentally, EVs represent the biggest revolution in transport yet, impacting not just vehicle OEMs but the power sector, cities, local authorities, businesses with parking spaces and housing developments. An effective roll-out of charging infrastructure across the UK will be cruicial to the economy over coming years.

The EV Infrastructure Summit is the first event designed around those crucial hosts and will showcase the opportunities hrough an interactive programme packed with innovative case studies and dialogue.
