Trade fair to focus on energy system transition in the transport sector
The reason for the organizers to create the new fair is the rising popularity of electromobility. Steadily, the number of electric vehicles is increasing: According to the latest report from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), the global fleet of electric vehicles has broken the two-million mark by 2016. This development was driven mainly by China, the United States, Japan and some European countries. A total of 50 million electric vehicles are expected to be on the roads around the world by 2030. This increasing attractiveness of electric vehicles requires a comprehensive loading infrastructure. The expected market volume in 2025 is over 45 billion US dollars.
This is where the Power2Drive is aiming at: The exhibition will present solutions and technologies for electromobility, reflecting the perfect interplay of electric vehicles with a sustainable and environmentally friendly energy supply. It will be the most-see meeting point for suppliers, manufacturers, dealers and start-ups in the emerging field of electromobility and transport, the organizer hopes. The target group also includes players from the automotive industry and energy supply as well as commercial customers, fleet operators as well as representatives of cities and municipalities. For them, the Power2Drive will offer comprehensive information about trends, developments and business models for future and sustainable mobility. The main focus is on drive batteries for electric vehicles as well as infrastructure solutions and technologies.
The Power2Drive, together with the new EM-Power, which will also launched in 2018, supplements the existing event portfolio of the established leading trade fairs Intersolar and ees Europe. All events will take place from 20 to 22 June 2018 in Munich. In the coming year, the four energy trade fairs will be bundled together for the first time under the new umbrella brand “The smarter E.” A total of 50,000 visitors and 1,200 exhibitors from 165 countries are expected.
