The 9th edition of the intercharge Network Conference is focused on the topic Mobility 2025 – on the verge of mass adoption, defining an EV Charging roadmap for the next four years.
BERLIN, 05.10.2021 – The 9th edition of the intercharge Network Conference (ICNC) hosted by a global eMobility expert Hubject on September 22nd and 23rd in Berlin, successfully reunited the international EV Charging industry in a hybrid event format. With 3,000 participants who joined onsite and online, 33 speakers from across the world, and 33 sponsors, the ICNC 2021 once again established itself as the global go-to B2B eMobility conference.
Having the experts at the conference, Hubject, the host of the conference used the opportunity to discuss with the participating experts, how the industry can reach the next level and start becoming a mass market. Therefore, five change catalysts were identified, to establish a mature and connected EV charging market by 2025: digital customer experience, smart energy, cities and municipalities, new market entrants, and the value of data. In four years, 54 million passenger EVs will be on the road worldwide. The outlined measures that should be taken by that time in order to have an EV charging ecosystem were discussed and used to generate a comprehensive infographic including all proposals measures and activities.
Top-class industry leaders such as Dr. Andreas Aumann from BMW Group, Luuk van Kuik from Last Mile Solutions, Elias Pöyry from Virta and Constantin Schwaab, from Wirelane presented their vision of eMobility and what actions are needed to reach a mature EV Charging Market by 2025, the year, when a middle-class electric vehicle will cost the same as its internal combustion engine pendant, lifting the industry to new levels of mass adoption.
“We have paid a lot of attention to the electromobility value chain, but we have not paid enough attention to the environment in which electromobility operates,” says Carsten Puhl, CTO of Hubject. “Therefore, we chose the theme of ‘eMobility 2025’ allowing the industry to reveal what action is needed to reach a mature and connected EV Charging Market by 2025.”
As the main goal of the ICNC is to connect all B2B players of the EV Charging ecosystem, Hubject decided to organize the conference as a hybrid event, ensuring accessibility despite changing travel and health regulations for the international audience. With over 3000 digital tickets sold and high engagement of the online audience, the format proved successful and will come back for the ICNC 2022.
CONFERENCE AS A MIRROR OF INDUSTRY GROWTH
“The ICNC is a fantastic representation of our ecosystem-based market and truly unites all players over the common goal of making EV charging fast, simple and accessible for everyone,” says Christian Hahn, CEO of Hubject. “The feedback and size of this year’s conference perfectly mirror the growth we are seeing in the EV Charging Industry over the past year. One thing is clear: The future of eMobility will be a great one.”
The intercharge Network Conference will return in 2022.
