The shift to electric is accelerating at pace, but some key challenges lie ahead before the full adoption of EV for Fleets, Cities, Municipalities and personal mobility.
In one of our 15 tracks at The International Mobility Summit (12-13 October 2022, Bella Center Copenhagen), we will look at the key challenges for Zero Emissions transport.
Are supply chain issues, charging challenges and costs going to slow down the adoption of EV’s going forward? Can battery technology and recycling help to make this transition more sustainable?
Over the course of the two days of the event, we will look at many of these questions and many more. We are continuing to add global thought-leaders and leading voices to these discussions. Reach out to us if you feel your organization has an important message on these topics.
1. ZERO CARBON EMISSIONS IN PUBLIC TRANSPORT- MAKING THIS A REALITY
Electric buses: The solution for reducing zero carbon emissions, noise and local air pollution?
Session curated by Siemens
Speakers coming soon
2. HOW TO BUILD AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE CITY: DEPLOYING CHARGING INFRASTRUCTURE
The deployment of EV charging infrastructure is critical for the growth of the EV market. Cities must build EV charging infrastructure at scale, and encourage investment from other stakeholders.
Maja Sig Vestergaard, eMobility planner, Senior Engineer at Rambøl
More speakers coming soon
3. THE GREEN INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION BEGINS IN NORTHERN EUROPE
Northern Europe have strong civil, political and economic forces dedicated to the green transition, and the technologies that will define our sustainable future are emerging faster and in greater numbers in the STRING megaregion, than anywhere else on the planet. Our ever-increasing focus on sustainable development has created an internal market, which offers fertile ground to prove business models in green industrial solutions. But there is one big challenge; individually, the innovative green growth centres in Northern Europe are too small to act independently on the global scene as main drivers of sustainable development and local and regional investment agencies are competing to attract international investments.

4. THE FUTURE OF ELECTRIC BOATS
In the evolution of an industry that has remained steadfast in its traditions, for better or for worse. With new technology, innovative research, smart design and sustainable materials, XShore embraces the long tradition of maritime craftsmanship while discarding the dirty institution of fossil fuels. They don’t see themselves as disrupters. They are not here to reinvent the wheel, but rather to right the ship. To set a course for long-term sustainability that we can all be proud of.
Helena Fagraeus Lundström, Chief Sustainability and Strategy Officer at Xshore
5. SHIFTING BUS FLEETS TO ZERO EMISSONS
Cities around the world are introducing electric buses, driven by growing concerns over urban air quality, carbon emissions and potential operational cost savings. But what are the challenges for cities, transport operators and how do we overcome them to smooth the transition?
Speakers coming soon
6. ZERO EMMISION MUNICIPAL VEHICLES
An overview of the e-bus market:
· E-bus manufacturers
· Status of current and planned e-bus projects across the globe.
· Business models for e-bus deployment and financing options.
· E-bus charging infrastructure considerations.
· A lithium battery market review: prices, lifespan, recycling and reuse.
· The future of e-buses: cost outlook and ownership models.
· How different types of cities can adapt an e-bus fleet for their infrastructure.
· Examples from cities around the world, including common challenges faced and approaches cities have used to overcome them
About The International Mobility Summit:
The global mobility, transport and smart city ecosystem will gather at the Bella Center Copenhagen on the 12th and 13th October 2022 for The International Mobility Summit. For the seventh year running, the summit will bring together members of the global mobility, transport and smart city ecosystem, thought leaders, disruptors, innovators, investors, and policymakers, to shape and plan mobility for cities of the future.
