Advances in European Infrastructure Will Increase Electric Cars Adoption Rates

Two thirds of motorists say they’d be more likely to buy an electric car if charging posts were more readily available at roadsides and in car parks across the UK, revealed a recent consumer survey.

Despite generous tax rebates and consumer incentives, the lack of EV infrastructure is the main reason buyers are hesitant to purchase electric vehicles.

Each stakeholder group such as automakers, utilities, charging station manufacturers and EV suppliers, operating in the infrastructure space will come together on October 11th-12th for Plug-In Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Europe 2011, Frankfurt, Germany. The conference will unite the leaders of the EV space to determine future infrastructure deployments, form beneficial partnerships and create EV specific business models.

Plug-In Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Europe is the only event that will attract senior EV decision makers. They will provide in-depth analysis, unseen case study results and knowledge about this exciting market so put the date in your diary now.

Daimler, Renault, Toyota, Better Place, RWE, Vattenfall , Coulomb Tech, Mitsubishi , Nissan and several other companies join the prestigious speaker line-up.

They will share best practice and knowledge on:

– Which key factors like infrastructure funding, dedicated parking spots, retail vouchers and home energy discounts will boost user adoption

– How to accelerate EV adoption by tackling the standards debate – achieve plug interoperability by customising current technologies to double you product portfolio

– Creating workable and mutually beneficial business models to develop EV infrastructure

– Overcome challenges surrounding the installation of Level 3 chargers into existing service stations by solving technical hurdles such as battery temperature management
