Revealing the latest advances and newest roadmaps as the way is paved for more affordable EV models, broader reach and improved infrastructure
October 24 – Croke Park – Dublin
The summit opens in:
About the Electric Vehicle Summit 2018: “Our drive to the future”….
There were less than 4000 EVs on the road at the start of 2018. This is seriously at odds with the government’s target that electric vehicles make up 10% (230,000 units) of all vehicles on the road by 2020. However, the good news is that registrations of new and imported electric vehicles in Ireland are up 40% on this time last year. So, are EVs finally ready to take-off?
Ireland has also set itself the target of ending the sale of cars powered just by fossil fuels by 2030. But, while the popularity of electric cars is growing, there are questions to be answered:
- How can we help EV adoption grow more quickly and as quickly as the government hoped?
- What types of incentive plans could help the Irish public with further adoption?
- What plans do the government have for increasing rapid charging points to help alleviate concerns over inconvenience?
- What types of fee structures will Ireland see for such conveniences?
Building on the success of our previous summits, these and a host of other topics will be addressed at the 3rd National Electric Vehicles Summit.
Widespread electric vehicle adoption requires a supportive ecosystem of stakeholders including utilities, government, vehicle OEMs, charging providers, interest groups and drivers. The 2018 Electric Vehicles Summit brings all of these stakeholders together under one roof to explore, in a highly interactive format, emerging trends, share best practices and map the road ahead. This innovative event is about making the most of the opportunities presented by EVs. It is about aligning objectives, creating partnerships and adopting business models to facilitate further adoption into the Irish market.
