Third German Electric Vehicle Congress 8-9 June 2011 in Bonn
The 3rd German Electric Vehicle (EV) Congress takes place on 8-9 June 2011 in Bonn in the former Bundestag, indeed a spectacular conference venue. After attending the 2nd EV Congress last year, I was invited to join the programme advisory board by Michael Carus, CEO of the organiser Nova Institute. Nova Institute is a research and consulting firm that is ususally focused on renewable resources, bio feedstock and biodegradable materials. Together with IAV, the automotive engineers that have 4.000 employees, Nova once again put together an exciting programme looking into the future of mobility.
My personal highlight will be Ulrich Kranz presenting the vision and product strategy of BMW i – the new brand focused on sustainable mobility. I look forward to moderate the session Renewable Energy and Electric Mobility on 9 June at 14:30. I hope to learn that the industry has been making good progress during the last year. In fact, I am disappointed that the transition to emobility is a lot slower than it should be if we want to save our planet. As far as I am concerned, our future should be driven by sustainable social mobility.
