E-Mobility as an Energy Resource – Best Practices to Drive Regulatory Changes

Free Webinar

Thursday, February 06, 2020 | 3:00pm–4:00pm CET | Webinar Language: English

Climate neutrality in 2050 is the EU’s man on the moon.

Much remains to be done to achieve this long-term objective, starting with more ambitious climate action in the transport sector in the coming decade as a 90% reduction in transport emissions is needed by 2050.
The clean electrification of vehicles and the deployment of a smart charging infrastructure are no-regret options to transform vehicles from mere transport assets to decentralized energy resources fully integrated in the power system.

This webinar will present a new smartEn publication supported by Power2Drive which collects best practices of innovative business models that should be supported by the regulatory frameworks to be set during the EU legislative cycle 2019-2024.

During the webinar participants can submit their questions to get them answered by the experts in the live Q&A. In addition, both the recording and the speakers' presentations are made available to all registrants after the webinar.
