About AEC2020

17 & 19 November 2020

The European Commission expects such a high uptake of electrified transport in the years to come that they predicted we will need one million EV charging points to match the foreseen thirteen million electric cars they believe to be on the road by 2025.
The AVERE E-Mobility Conference (AEC) 2020 will bring together stakeholders from across the European e-mobility sector including consumers, policymakers, and leading industry representatives to discuss how we will achieve this goal.
The Consumer Perspective
