VISION mobility THINK TANK @Power2Drive

Free Webinar

Tuesday, September 22, 2020 | 11:00am–12.00am MESZ | Webinar Language: German

It is absolutely clear to the protagonists of the VISION mobility THINK TANK that we will only drive electrically in the future. But why this will be the case and how it can work, even over long distances, is what VISION mobility moderator Johannes Reichel discusses in a conversation with people who really know it: Futurists Lars Thomsen and Christoph Gümbel from the think tank future matters, founder of the Swiss charging technology innovators Juice, Christoph R. Erni, and Prof. Thomas R. Koehler, CEO, CE21 - Gesellschaft für Kommunikationberatung mbH, expert for future technologies.

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.

Our Guests

Christoph Erni, Founder and CEO, Juice Technology AG

Christoph Erni is the founder and CEO of Juice Technology AG, the Swiss manufacturer of charging stations and solutions. Around 20 years ago, he set up his own business consultancy, Erni Associates AG. Noticing the lack of decent charging solutions in 2014, he made a snap decision to enter the manufacturing business and founded Juice Technology AG. The company secured pole position in this segment in its very first year of business with the Juice Booster 1 portable 22 kW charging station – and it has stayed there ever since.
