CharIN EUROPE Conference and Networking event

June 28, 2022
Zielona Góra (Poland)
Host: Ekoenergetyka – Polska S.A.

Welcome to the 2nd CharIN EUROPE Conference on June 28, 2022

In cooperation with the Testival host Ekoenergetyka, and the Polish Chamber of E-Mobility Development Association, CharIN has prepared an exciting Conference Day in the framework of the next Testival EUROPE.

Three thematic blocks are on our agenda, each of them consisting of an exciting up-to-date Keynote and a panel discussion that connects to the Keynote.

We will talk about the following topics

  1. Legal framework for electromobility in Europe
  2. The Future of Heavy Duty Transport in Europe
  3. Energy sector transformation and High Power charging infrastructure

We come from High starting the Conference with a Keynote on the "Directions given by the global situation, their impact on the transportation industry, and the implementation of climate policy." Extensive observations will be presented by Mr. Michał Kurtyka, Former Minister of Climate and Environment of Poland and President of COP24.

The first panel will then shed a light on the European regulations as well as on the latest news on AFIR, the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Regulation that shall increase the implementation of Charging infrastructure.

Talking about E-Mobility let´s take a look at the status quo of electric trucks in Europe and the close future of CharIN´s Megawatt Charging System. Daniel Speth from Fraunhofer ISI will share insights of the HoLa project with the audience and the panel discussion will raise the question if Europe is ready for e-trucks.

Keynote number three will focus on the challenges of the energy sector and the grid if more electric charging points are needed.  Let´s discuss potential solutions together.

Take the chance to get an expert update on these hot topics of the EV Charging industry.
Hear from industry and political stakeholders how to best tackle the challenges and connect with other CharIN members for exchange!

We look forward to welcoming you at the 2nd CharIN EUROPE conference.

Preliminary Agenda

09:45 am - 10:25 am: Opening of the Conference

10:25 am - 11:45 am: Block 01 | Legal framework for electromobility in Europe

Panel 1: What AFIR could change in international business and government policy?

The European Commission has presented a solid proposal on the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Regulation (AFIR) ensuring there is sufficient public charging infrastructure to follow the deployment of zero-emission cars. What is the cost of implementing these technologies in the charging infrastructure? How should we act globally?

What is the intention of France which took over the presidency of the European Council with the goal to present a ready directive by June 2022?

01:15 pm - 02:35 pm: Block 02 | The Future of Heavy Duty Transport in Europe

Panel 2: Is Europe ready for e-trucks?

The Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Regulation (AFIR) dictates directions for the development of recharging infrastructure for electric and hydrogen long-haul transport. Manufacturers, when creating new battery trucks, need new charging technologies such as the Megawatt Charging System (MCS).

Is the entire Europe ready for the next big step? Is there any difference between preparing the ecosystem for the e-truck in Western Europe and the rest of the CEE region? Let´s shed a light on opportunities and challenges.

03:20 pm - 04:40 pm: Block 03 | Energy Sector Transformation and High Power Charging Infrastructure

Panel 3: A holistic approach to charging hubs

Electromobility helps achieve climate goals since it reduces the consumption of fossil fuels. The energy sector is changing towards greener energy and the use of RES.

Is the extension of the charging infrastructure the solution for the massive rollout of zero-emission vehicles? Which role ultra-fast DC charging hubs could play to solve existing challenges and to improve the charging experience for the EV drivers? 

04:40 pm - 06:15 pm: Closing remarks, Farewell & Get Together
