2 – 3 October 2024

Forum Karlín

The Seventh Edition of the Conference on the Present and the Future of Battery and Hydrogen Electromobility

electromobility is here

The primary impetus for the development of electromobility in Europe came from the desire to reduce CO2 emissions. While this remains an important issue, economic factors are gradually becoming the main driver for the mass uptake of electric vehicles. They are slowly reaching a level of cost comparability with combustion-powered vehicles. Despite the fact that the Czech Republic is not among the leaders in the adoption of electromobility among EU Member States, it is expected that the number of electric vehicles on Czech streets could reach one million within the next ten years.

The Electromobility Forum promises to provide an up-to-date overview of the latest market trends, technological innovations and legislative changes. This meeting aims not only to provide comprehensive information on the current state of the industry, but also to discuss new opportunities and potential challenges facing it, including the current hot topic of melting competition for Europe from China and the US. The Forum will target a wide range of participants, including businesses, professionals and other stakeholders. There will also be an exploration of the heavy electric vehicle segment and a debate on the potential use of hydrogen propulsion in transport. The conference is an ideal opportunity for anyone interested in the latest developments in road mobility and who wants to play a part in shaping them.

We have prepared two days full of inspiring lectures, discussions and sharing of practical experiences from the Czech and European environment. The forum will be complemented by an exhibition where you will have the opportunity to personally test electric vehicles and learn about the latest technological innovations in this field. During the conference, we will combine professional training with opportunities to establish new business partnerships. The opening evening will be enlivened by a networking cocktail, providing an ideal opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences among the participants.

program

The conference program is structured in thematic blocks, combining lectures and panel discussions on the most topical issues.

The content of the blocks is prepared in such a way as to create a comprehensive picture for the audience, alternating between an overview of the issues and examples of already implemented projects. A moderated discussion will provide ample time to answer your questions.

The conference will also include presentations of vehicles and other products and services for electromobility and the opportunity for test drives.

The conference will be simultaneously interpreted into Czech/English.
