Nordic EV Summit 2019


Planet Electric

The International Energy Agency predicts the number of electric cars in the world could be as high as 220 million units by 2030. All of them must be charged with renewable energy. Nordic EV Summit 2019 takes on a global perspective along the following four central themes:

Ramping up production

The world needs a wider range of EV models, a higher pace of delivery and a steady expansion of markets. Can the industry deliver without causing harm to people and nature? Are sustainable cars trapped in dirty energy, or will the automobile manufacturers become tomorrow’s changemakers?

Charging from pole to pole

Lack of home charging is a significant barrier that may delay the EV revolution. How can we serve both crowded cities and scattered small towns with the capacity, capability and access they’ll need? How can we supply clean energy when all cars, trucks, buses and boats go electric?

The Norwegian EV policy kit: can it be exported

Norway is aiming for full electrification in sales within 2025, and the rest of the Nordics is joining the race. Can Norwegian EV policies be the recipe for the world? Can the world’s most successful political tools for the EV shift, become Norway’s most important export?

Barriers, carriers and consumer choice

Consumers actions, habits and principles are not easily changed. Still, it is the people’s demands that are the driving force in forming the future.  Who are today’s and tomorrow’s EV owners? What ideas will win their hearts and minds, and what’s in the way of getting them on board?
