Welcome to the EV World Congress, the premier annual event for industry leaders, innovators, and policymakers in the electric vehicle (EV) sector. With EV sales experiencing a remarkable 60% year-on-year increase in and accounting for 16% of the market, it's crucial that infrastructure deployment stays ahead of the curve. The EV World Congress provides an unparalleled platform to network with industry experts, gain valuable insights, and shape the future of the EV charging landscape.
A staggering nine out of 10 local authorities have yet to implement an electric vehicle charging infrastructure strategy, with time citied as the primary obstacle, and lack of funding following closely behind. EV drivers are also now seeking out more convenient charging options at places they frequently visit, such as supermarkets, shopping centres, hotels, and workplaces. A recent YouGov/CTEK survey showcased a significant shift, with 29% of EV drivers relying on public or destination chargers.
Clearly, there is still hesitancy when it comes to initiating the process of implementing charge point infrastructure. This is where sharing insights with peers, and partnering with investors and experienced charge point installers can expedite the deployment of EV charging infrastructure by businesses and councils. Our goal is to bring together the leading voices from across the UK, alongside experts from around the world to share insights, discuss emerging trends, and explore the future of sustainable mobility.
Join us for a dynamic program of keynote speeches, panel discussions, and networking opportunities, all aimed at accelerating the transition to a cleaner, greener transportation system.
