REBOOTING AN AUTOMOTIVE POWERHOUSE
1 MILLION EVs on German roads by 2020
Automotive sector produces 20% of GDP
Germany is the third largest car producing country in the world, sitting behind China and Japan. State Secretary Machnig has stated that to retain this position it must be able to produce its own batteries and the German Federal Government has earmarked 1Bn Euro to realise this.
Germany has been called “the world’s first renewable energy economy” by Renewable Energy World and in Jan 2019 it saw renewables overtake coal for the first time, making up just over 40% of the energy mix for the country. Having committed to decommissioning all 84 of its coal power stations by 2038 it will also need to find an additional 54.7 GW of energy from other sources.
With an additional 45Bn Euro set aside for the transition away from coal and target of 1M EVs on the road by 2020, Everything EV Live: Germany is perfectly poised to bring together stakeholders from energy and automotive to truly decarbonise Germany’s transport.
If you think you have something to add that can help accelerate the decarbonisation of transport in Germany then get in touch about speaking at Everything EV Live: Germany to get your message out and join the fight against the climate emergency.

EVERYTHING EV LIVE ECOSYSTEM
what's on the agenda?
With companies like E.On and Metro AG recognising the financial and PR benefits of moving to a fully electric fleet and the push for more multi modal transport, explore the rise of EV enabled MAAS services and decarbonising public transport.
Battery Technology & Energy Storage
As the third largest automotive manufacturer in the world, Germany has realised that to maintain that position it needs to reboot its economy to build a world beating battery industry. Understand the roles of FCEV, BEVs, PHEV, is there one solution or many and how increasing battery density will reduce range anxiety.
To support the ambition of 1M EVs on the road by 2020 there needs to be the infrastructure there to ensure they can recharge, explore the ideal mix of workplace/home/destination/public charging points. Learn how customer experience can be improved through the adoption of the CCS standard.
Policy & Regulation
With 800,000 staff in automotive dependent roles the training and transition to an EV centric sector will need careful management. Explore the wider EV incentives beyond 2019 and the role that carbon pricing/emission charging will play in the coming years.
evERYTHING EV Live IN PICTURES...
Relieve our London conference to have an idea of what you could experience this year in Berlin!
Don’t miss your chance to be part of the market leading event that brings together local authorities & government, fleet owners & transport authorities, commercial real estate owners, utilities, DNO’s.
Network alongside suppliers, engineers, installers manufacturers, consultants, law firms and many more!
WHAT DOES THE INDUSTRY THINK OF EVERYTHING EV LIVE?
A very insightful look at the current state of play and to understand the level of aspiration required to transform the future. Great to hear from and network with other Local Authorities to understand how progress is being made.
This event was extremely valuable because it brought together leading organisations in these sectors, covered the most important topics in the presentation sessions, and allowed time make new business connections in the comfortable and well-timed networking sessions.
This event was a fantastic mix of participants and signals the growing importance of surrounding markets for low carbon transport. The balance of hardware and software suppliers, infrastructure suppliers, local authorities and academia made for a great networking opportunity for those entering this maturing industry.
Everything EV, was everything it stated on the tin, thoroughly enjoyed the event, meet some interesting contacts and will be attending again in the future.
As we are currently rolling out the Plug In Suffolk project to accelerate EV charging infrastructure in the County, I found this conference an essential insight into this rapidly advancing revolution. This conference was a 'must attend' for anyone involved in the transition to electric transport.
