The Sixth Annual Conference on the Present and the Future of Battery and Hydrogen Electromobility

October 11 - 12 2023
Forum Karlín


 Electromobility Forum is here

The market may grow faster than previously predicted. Electromobility has increasing political and public support. In many cases, electric cars pay off without subsidies today.

The Electromobility Forum brings you a range of lectures and discussions focusing on already "mainstream topics" such as fleet electrification and the development of charging infrastructure, but also on the new, but rapidly growing, agendas of electrification of heavy vehicles and hydrogen use.

During the conference, there will be presentations of vehicles from major automotive companies and other electromobility products and service providers, as well as the opportunity for test drives. 

The Electromobility Forum 2023 will take place on: 


October 11, Forum Karlin

Focused on the key electromobility agenda, the second day of the conference will focus mainly on heavy vehicles and hydrogen. 

A networking cocktail will take place at the end of the day.

Conference Forum Electromobility 2023
11.- 12. October, Forum Karlin

The conference program is structured in blocks, in which lectures and panel discussions will alternate. As in previous editions, managers and experts involved in the development of battery and hydrogen electromobility, whether in technology development, business, infrastructure development or legislation, are invited as speakers.

The content of the sessions is designed to provide the audience with a comprehensive picture of the subject. A moderated discussion will provide ample time to answer questions from the audience.

The first day of the conference will focus on passenger cars and light commercial vehicles and electromobility in general. The second day will be mostly (but not only) about electrification of heavy vehicles and also about hydrogen transport.

There may be some substitution between the first and second day. Speakers who will be contacted or are awaiting confirmation are marked with an asterisk.

The conference will also include presentations of vehicles from major automotive companies and other products and services for electromobility and test drives with electric vehicles.

The conference will be simultaneously interpreted into Czech/English.
