As the first bi-national electromobility-themed conference held in the context of an international motor show, this event has recently confirmed speakers from both France and Germany representing business, economics and public policy interests. These stakeholders are working at the local, regional and national levels to debate the issues surrounding electromobility. While state officials are testifying to conditions for the introduction of electromobility in their territories, at the industrial level, the focus appears to be on representing the full extent of the market, namely world-class manufacturers and new companies.

Presentation of the evolution of the electric vehicle market and inventory of charging infrastructures in France and Germany
Comparison of local, regional and national strategies supporting the use of electric vehicles
Subsidies for vehicles and charging stations, priority for electric vehicles, integration of electric vehicles in municipal and regional fleets, public companies
Connecting electromobility with energy policy and the use of intermodal concepts such as car & ride-sharing
Prospects for Franco-German cooperation to create framework conditions for the use of electric vehicles
