The fourth annual Conference on the present and the future of electromobility and hydrogen mobility

 

 
October 14 - 15 2021
FORUM KARLÍN, SPOJKA KARLÍN

 Electromobility is here

The market may be growing faster than most of us imagine. Electromobility receives political support across Europe and globally. Battery prices are going down rapidly. In some cases e-cars are already competitive without subsidies. 

 

The Electromobility Forum brings you a range of lectures and discussions focused on the key agenda of electromobility, hydrogen mobility and practical topics of fleet electrification.

You can watch the lectures and discussions from ELECTROMOBILITY FORUM 2020 on iHNed.cz (in Czech only).

The Forum is structured into four parts:

1

DAY 1 OF THE CONFERENCE
October 14, Forum Karlín

Electromobility: four sessions focused on the key electromobility agenda, with the participation of foreign experts and sufficient time for questions from the audience

A program will be regularly updated

Electromobility Conference
October 14, Forum Karlin

Registration starts at 8:30, conference starts at 9:00, conference ends at 17:30, followed by cocktail party

At the beginning of the conference, the biggest electromobility players in the Czech Republic will tell us about their visions and plans. This will be followed by presentations and discussions covering 5 key topics of current electromobility: electrification of fleets, infrastructure, comparison of EVs with internal combustion engines, the role of the EU and the state support, and urban electromobility.

The preliminary program below outlines the agenda to be discussed.

1.   VISION OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF ELECTROMOBILITY OF THE BIGGEST PLAYERS

Large Vehicles and Hydrogen Conference
Friday October 15, Spojka Karlín

Registration starts at 8:30, conference starts at 9:00, conference ends at 16:00

The Conference will be simultaneously interpreted
  
Battery buses have been running in several cities and regions in the Czech Republic already for a few years. Battery-powered vans have become available, heavier trucks are just beginning to be sold. "Green hydrogen" is a big topic and the EU is very attached to technologies for its production, distribution and use (involving subsidies). It is a run on a long track, but the first hydrogen bus projects for real operation are already underway also in the Czech Republic. The first heavy-duty hydrogen trucks recently started to travel in large numbers in Switzerland.
 
During the conference we will address the following topics:

1.   PERSPECTIVE OF ELECTRIFICATION OF BUSES AND TRUCKS IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC

 

How does the existing and forthcoming legislation on reducing CO2 emissions for freight and bus
transport look like? Will road freight transport be part of the EU ETS? What will this mean for
operators? What are the feasible technological options? What is the position of the Czech
government? What subsidies are planned
?

   
          Analyst (EU transport industry) *

        State Environmental Fund of the Czech Republic
)
          Vojtěch Hromíř (General Secretary, ČESMAD Bohemia z.s.)

2.   PRODUCTION AND DISTRIBUTION OF GREEN HYDROGEN FOR ROAD TRANSPORT

 

What is the global perspective of hydrogen for transport? What are the technologies involved
in the supply chain? What projects are planned in the Czech Republic? Can the Czech Republic
produce green hydrogen in sufficient volumes? What will its distribution look like? What is
its price? Can it be sufficiently reduced? And how fast
?

   
          Martin Tengel (Senior Consultant, Bloomberg NEF, Tokyo)
          Martin Gajdoš (Director of Strategy, ORLEN Unipetrol a.s.)
          Aleš Laciok (Head of Research and Development, ČEZ a.s.)
          Aleš Doucek (Head of Hydrogen Technology Department, ÚJV Řež a.s.)

3.   LARGE FUEL CELL VEHICLES AND EXAMPLES OF PROJECTS

 

Fuel cell drive technology. How will these vehicles evolve? What kind of vehicles can we expect on the roads and when? How much will they cost? How do global players Bosch and Hyundai see hydrogen in road transport? Case study of hydrogen trucks in Switzerland: what is the motivation there, how does it work, what are the prospects of further development?

   
          Jochen Walther (Director, System Engineering Fuel Cell, Robert Bosch GmbH, Germany)
          Hyundai representative*

4.   BATTERY VEHICLES, CHARGING INFRASTRUCTURE AND EXAMPLES OF PROJECTS
