The exhibition Power2Drive showcases charging solutions and technologies for electric vehicles and reflects the interaction between electric vehicles and a sustainable and environmentally friendly energy supply. It is an industry hotspot for suppliers, manufacturers, distributors and start-ups in the emerging field of electric mobility and transportation. Our goal is to help companies to develop and distribute technologies and business in the field of traction batteries, charging infrastructure and electric vehicles and to push forward a sustainable future mobility.
Charging the future of mobility!
Launching into a renewable, decentralized and digital energy world offers countless new prospects and potential for innovative formats. As a platform for the new energy world, The smarter E concentrates on sharing information on energy industry topics and providing a networking opportunity for global industry players – now with a number of additional digital formats such as podcasts, webinars, innovation days, etc.
Our regular webinars with industry experts offer a deep understanding of the latest trends in the new energy world and provide an overview of important research results and practical market figures. The smarter E Podcast entertains and informs, giving a voice to the players of the new energy world – anytime and anywhere. Digital conferences, seminars, Innovation Days and many other online events create a space for sharing knowledge, presenting brand new market solutions and forging new contacts using interactive networking tools.
The smarter E Europe and its four energy exhibitions Intersolar Europe, Power2Drive Europe, ees Europe and EM-Power will not take place this year. On account of the increasing spread of the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) worldwide and in response to recommendations from the German federal government as well as the Bavarian state government, the organizers have decided to cancel the exhibitions and the accompanying conferences. The smarter E Europe will take place again from June 9–11, 2021.
The forecasts of the current study "The Energy Transition in the Context of the Nuclear and Coal Phaseout" by EuPD Research in cooperation with The smarter E Europe and the BSW Solar show that in order to avoid a shortfall in electricity generation, photovoltaics and storage must be greatly expanded in Germany.
The positive side effect: by 2030, this would be accompanied by a significant positive effect on employment and revenue. Within the next decade, the employment within the German photovoltaic and storage industry could triple, creating more than 50,000 new jobs. The forecasted industry revenue would grow during this period from five to 12.5 billion euros.
Autonomous, digital, networked - many future technologies are leading to new requirements and visions for fleet management. The focus is currently on the question of alternative powertrains with electromobility as the most important technology for the mobility of the future. Electric motors are today powerful, the ranges and types of vehicles are increasing continuously and the charging times are getting shorter. When it comes to charging instead of refuelling, the right solution is crucial. In our White Paper we provide answers to the most important questions about charging and how to electrify your fleet.
E-mobility and photovoltaics are becoming increasingly attractive options for businesses. The “PV PROSUMER GUIDELINES FOR EIGHT EU MEMBER STATES” advises businesses on how to use their own solar installations to electrify their vehicle fleets. The German Solar Association coordinated the production of the guideline, which was funded by the European Union and enjoys the support of The smarter E Europe and the Association of German Chambers of Commerce and Industry (DIHK).
