The developing market for Electric Vehicles provides a huge new commercial opportunity for utilities and the energy industry alike. Yet the wide spread use of EVS is currently being held back technological and infrastructural issues. A forum is needed for key stakeholders will come together to confront the most pressing issues facing commercial investors in EV technology.

An emphasis will be placed on the formation of a feasible business model and updates on the latest standards and regulations which will affect this. Crucial discussions on the viability of second-life application for EV batteries, and the realities of V2G charging, as well as the uncertainty surrounding the role of the integrator and back-office management of EV programmes will be tackled.
