11.45-13.00 **Parallel sessions 1**
11.45-13:00 Track 1. Charging policies in cities: preparing for mass adoption of EV
Providing ways to grow public charging infrastructure in cities and regions is one of the key factors for successful adoption of electric vehicles. The speakers will share their latest findings on existing and new public policies for growth of public charging EVs implemented by leading municipalities within Europe.
1. Jaap Burger & Philipp Renard – City of Amsterdam: Demand-driven rollout of public charging infrastructure has resulted in a dense network of charge points in Amsterdam. To cope with the expected growth of EVs, the network must be able to quickly absorb increased need for charging. Amsterdam is using data analysis to improve this demand-driven rollout, including smart charging options to improve charging speed, grid stress and use of renewables.
2. Daniel Stetter – City of Heidelberg and Fraunhofer IAO: Presentation of results on public charging infrastructure utilization, using advanced simulation tools to help strengthen policies for further rollout of EV charging infrastructure in the Baden Wurttemberg area.
3. Matthijs Kok and Harm-Jan Idema – City of Utrecht & APPM: A new strategy for realization of 5.000 public charging points in the City of Utrecht is needed. Therefore, different methods of policy evaluation and planning are used. Using data and advanced simulation tools the new policy gives the city a clear path forward. Matthijs Kok (City of Utrecht) and Harm-Jan Idema (APPM) have developed this model and are both experts in this field.
11:45-13.00 Track 2. Smart Charging Myths Debunked
Smart-charging myths are widespread. As well as debunking these myths, the speakers will provide practical insights into how to implement and use smart charging to establish a future-proof energy infrastructure in cities and regions – one that speeds up the market, offers end-users hassle-free green mobility and grows the market for renewable energy.
1. Lonneke Driessen – Director of Standardization at Open Charge Alliance, ELaadNL foundation Ms Driessen will look back at the results of Plugfest 2.0 and go into details related to the challenges and benefits of using ISO 15118, showing how it can be combined with innovative smart energy (machine2machine) allocation solutions like the Elaad IOTA proof of concept.
2. Lennart Verheijen – Innovation Manager at GreenFlux: Mr Verheijen was involved as technology provider for Electric Nation, by far the largest smart charging project in the world so far. There were 700 chargers/participants involved in this two-year project. This operational experience and the statistical relevance of the queries have yielded new insights that promise to be a very interesting contribution to the current perception of smart charging.
3. Dietrich Sümmermann – Chairman of the Share&Charge foundation: Mr Sümmermann will discuss his experience with the pro’s and cons of applying Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) such as blockchain in service delivery for charging EVs. He will examine how this can benefit users, public authorities, charging service providers and mobility service providers in offering practical and comfortable charging solutions. He will also explore the scientific challenges of establishing next steps for sensible use of DLT in the charging domain.
13.00-14.15 Lunch
14.15-15:15 Plenary afternoon session
14.15-14.45 KEYNOTE 3 – Zero emission city logistics and trucks
To provide charging solutions for trucks for OEMs such as DAF in a logistics operation, new capabilities have to be researched, engineered and put into practice. How to co-develop this market and apply science to provide innovative solutions for logistical operations?
1. Mark Smidt, Heliox power conversion: In the Eindhoven region the development of electric and near-zero emission buses has a long history. Based on a track record with innovative low emission buses in 1998 the Eindhoven region is proofing to become a region which is able to rapidly scale up zero emissions technology for 100% ZE trucks to meet demand.
14.45 -15.15 KEYNOTE 4 – Intelligent data-driven optimization of rollout of charging infrastructure
Dr. Ir. Robert van den Hoed – Lector Energy and Innovation at Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences
Ir. Simone Maase – Project Manager and Research Associate at E-Mobility at Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences: The IDO-Laad research program delivers key insights into helping local governments in the setting and monitoring of public charging policies, including a visual and verbal overview of the provisional main results.
15.15 -15.30 Break
15.30-16.30 **Parallel sessions 2**
15.30-16:30 Track 3. The customer journey when rolling out EV charging networks
Developing a satisfactory charging infrastructure is often a key blocker for massive rollout of EV, so this track puts the focus on the customer experience around the rollout of charging networks: What are the theories, blockers and opportunities for businesses and local governments wanting to provide an optimal user experience and minimize complaints.
Topics for interactive discussion
- The theory of customer experience (CX) in a technical (infrastructure-driven) context
- Customer perspective on the rollout of public charging networks
- The charging experience
In addition, over the course of the day all congress participants will add their insights to the Customer Experience Wall, to collect and present their experiences.
1. Barbara van Duin – Customer Experience Expert: The huge goal of reaching 1.8M EV charge points in 2030 is not only about technology-push, regulation and financial investments – they are all crucial ingredients, but it can only work if users have a positive experience and are willing to adopt EV. Tesla itself is the best example for this.
2. Maarten Hachmang – Director and owner of Mr Hachmang will share his perspective on the Charging Experience as part of the Customer Experience Dialogue, based on practical experiences.
15.30-16:30 Track 4. Zero emission city logistics and trucks
The current worldwide renaissance of electric vehicles started with the Californian Zero Emissions Mandate of 1990. The mandates of cities and regions are now leading the next wave of Zero Emission Mobility in establishing zero emission logistics for commercial vehicles and logistical operations.
Our speakers are experts working for or with state-of-the-art OEMs such as DAF and Daimler, and they will present their visions on market developments and scientific insights into use cases and EV capabilities. Initial results from European pilot projects on city distribution and on heavy duty trucks will also be discussed.
1. [Speaker tba] – Boardmember Greendeal Zero Emissions City Distribution (tbc). More than 75 partners joined this alliance to realise zero emission inner city distribution by 2025. Project update and discussion of how the need for infrastructure will change.
2. Frans Verbruggen – Eindhoven University of Technology Electric trucks: economically and environmentally desirable, but misunderstood. An overview of the trucks coming to market and the use case research into heavy duty trucks.
3. Auke Hoekstra – Eindhoven University of Technology and TNO E-Trucks in Rotterdam. What part of your fleet can you replace with e-trucks, and under which conditions? What is the impact of fast charging infrastructure on grids and the energy market?
16.30-17.00 PANEL DISCUSSION – ‘The impact of data and protocols on real life’
Charging networks play an increasingly important role in the domains of energy, mobility and the urban environment. This creates new possibilities for customer propositions and business models. It also introduces new challenges for regulators and grid operators. The panel will reflect on the disruptive effect that charging networks can have on current ways of working and make a call for future research in these domains. For example:
- EV as part of integrated energy management systems
- Integrating charging networks in urban design
- Facilitating new modes of transport
- Security and ownership of mobility and charging data.
