MOTUS-E Event, now in its second edition, is the annual MOTUS-E meeting about the future of electric mobility: a day of sharing, co-creation, to talk about technology and sustainability.
MOTUS-E is the first Italian Association to bring together industries, the transport sector, the academia, consumer associations and opinion movements, to favour the transition towards a more sustainable model of mobility, in a context in which technologies and digital transformation play a crucial role.
1. Charging infrastructure
- Innovative high-power charging systems: technologies, impacts, requirements (multimodal charging hub;
- Charging infrastructure needs and related business models.
- New storage systems: new chemicals, reuse and recycling, business model and battery markets.
3. Intelligent transport and mobility management
- Fleet management and charging software: TPL, car-sharing, freight, company cars
- Prospects of electric vehicles in public and freight transport
- The use of electric vehicles in urban freight transport networks and in public transportation system: new strategies and best practices
- Total Cost of Ownership assessment for electric and ICE vehicles
- Electric, connected, autonomous and shared cars: future prospects and business models
- Study of the impact of vehicle sharing mechanisms (including micro-mobility) on consumer mobility habits
4. Vehicle engineering
- Vehicles design (cars, buses, vehicles for freight transport): innovative cooling/heating systems, integration of batteries, platform and frames, new materials
- Design of the electric powertrain
5. Energy Sector
- Impact of transition to electric mobility on the power system
- Smart charging solutions, Vehicle-Grid Integration and their implementation
6. Environmental impact
- Evaluation of environmental benefits (contribution to air quality) of electric mobility in urban areas
- Life Cycle Assessment and energy consumption assessment for electric and ICE vehicles. A comparative analysis.
7. Policies, markets and industry
- Study of the impacts of policy interventions on the electric vehicle market (eg fiscal mechanisms and incentives)
- Incentive schemes to support electric vehicle penetration
- Impact of transition to electric mobility on the automotive industry
- National, regional and local / urban public policies in favour of electric mobility.
