ChargeUp Europe Webinar: Consumers and Climate – How can AFIR deliver for EV Charging? – 18 November


18 Nov 2021 11:00 to 12:30





Event Description

ChargeUp Europe is inviting you to a webinar on 18 November from 11:00 to 12:30 (CET) to discuss how the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Regulation (AFIR) can deliver EV charging infrastructure across the EU in a way that works for consumers and unlocks the climate and environmental benefits of E-mobility.

Europe has made a clear commitment towards carbon-neutrality by 2050 and to achieve at least 55% emission’s reduction by 2030. But getting there will require ambitious policy for zero emission transport that harnesses the full potential of electromobility.

The revision of the alternative fuels infrastructure rules will play a critical role in this regard and will set the framework for deploying EV charging infrastructure in Europe.

Our event will bring together experts from different sectors to discuss the key opportunities and challenges from the upcoming EU legislation on EV charging infrastructure.

Our agenda includes distinguished speakers such as:

  • Christopher Burghardt, ChargeUp Europe President​ - Introductory Speech:
  • Aaron Fishbone, Director of Public Policy at GreenWay Infrastructure ​- Moderator

Panel 1: From highways to street corners: Getting the charging ambition right.

  • Darko Levicar, Counsellor for Intermodal Transport - Permanent Representation of the Republic of Slovenia to the European Union
  • Alexander Krug, Partner - Arthur D Little
  • Julia Poliscanova, Senior Director, Vehicles & Emobility - Transport and Environment (T&E)

Panel 2: From late adopters to smart consumers: Making it work for drivers today and in the future.

  • MEP Caroline Nagtegaal, Renew Europe Vice-Coordinator for European Parliament Transport Committee & Shadow rapporteur on the AFIR report
  • Roland Ferwerda, Board Member - EVRoaming Foundation
  • Koen Noyens, Director of Public Policy - EVBOX (ChargeUp Europe’s Policy Chair)
  • Dimitri Vergne, Team Leader Sustainability and Acting Team Leader Energy - The European Consumer Organisation (BEUC)
