The committee is ensuring the programme features:

  • Cutting-edge technical insights into optimising charger placement, grid stability and electrification of transport.
  • Case studies and lessons learned from EV infrastructure implementation.
  • Techniques for analysing and modelling complex real-world factors to determine charging infrastructure needs.
  • Interactive sessions where engineers can generate and refine solutions together.
