EV Charging Technology and Equipment Show

26-28 OCTOBER 2022 Istanbul Expo Center, Istanbul, Turkey

CONFERENCE SESSIONS & TIMES

Sessions You Should Attend to Deepen Your Knowledge About EV Charging

As electric vehicles usage becomes widespread, EV charging options (at home, work, and on the road) will be available all around. Building an EV charging infrastructure has now become a necessity for Turkey, as in many developed countries of the world. That’s why we need more information about EV charging infrastructure and technology solutions. We need to understand how we have to do it clearly. We will look at the conditions in Turkey from a broader perspective.

We proudly present you the EV Charging Conference that will be concurrently held with the EV Charge Show. Meticulously chosen session topics and the esteemed speakers who are experts in their fields will deepen your knowledge about the technologies offered in the e-mobility ecosystem and the opportunities and threats to be encountered in the transition to e-mobility. The conference is organized in cooperation with the main supporter of the fair, AVERE Turkey Electro Mobility Association. Select the sessions you decide to attend and make sure to register online to attend the sessions.

Attending sessions is free of charge but online registration is required.

Solarbaba Session

Clean Energy Clean Mobility

With the increasing effects of the climate crisis, the demand for electric transportation is increasing rapidly all over the world. It will no longer be possible to enter many city centers with a fossil fuel vehicle. Some countries have already taken steps to ban the sale of gasoline-diesel cars in the coming years and have given a date.

Of course, electric transportation is not limited to single cars, we have started to see electric prototypes of many vehicles such as truck-tractors-freighters-ships-planes.

Such an intense demand must be met from clean energy sources, especially solar energy. So is there such a large renewable energy capacity? Is there the necessary infrastructure for charging stations? What should be the link between the electric transportation sector and the clean energy sector?

In this session, we will bring these details to the agenda and try to find solutions to existing problems.
