2025 will become a critical year for the Electric Vehicle Charging Industry. It will be the year when a middle-class electric vehicle will cost the same as its internal combustion engine pendant. A great accomplishment that will lift the entire industry to new heights of mass adoption, freeing itself from the shackles of subsidies and embracing healthy and dynamic growth. With this, we will reach an unprecedented state of EV-based mobility all over the world.
But to establish the 2025 vision of the EV Charging Market, the whole EV ecosystem must collaborate! The logic behind such a connected eMobility ecosystem is not only future-oriented but empowering: We must come together to place each step of the EV Charging process in the hands of the EV driver. Because ultimately, people will drive the change.
eMobility 2025 embodies the central theme of the ICNC21: It allows us to reveal what action is needed now to reach our goal of a mature EV Charging Market by 2025, a market on the verge of mass adoption.
We have identified five change catalysts that will enable us, the EV Charging Industry, to deliver on this 2025 vision:

Learning from the past and embracing the future.
Welcome to the 2021 edition of the intercharge Network Conference, an edition dedicated to embracing the next four years of possibilities in eMobility with the common vision of a connected and mature EV Charging Market by 2025.
The ramp-up of electrified mobility is currently at the center of public attention. With more electrified vehicles in the market the whole E-mobility industry is gaining momentum. One of the biggest enablers besides attractive, innovative and ever more sustainable automobile offers is charging. Charging has the potential to develop from a purchase barrier towards a selling proposition for E-mobility and to become a profitable ecosystem. Automobile manufacturers, cities and municipalities but also utilities and oil & gas companies should seize the opportunity and continue to work on fulfilling customer needs by creating integrated and transparent charging offers.
So, what will charging be like in the future and why is it so important for our industry?
Luuk van Kuik will shine a light on the key challenges and opportunities which will impact the evolution of the whole eMobility market in the years to come – from a software infrastructure side of things. Even more important he will outline how we, as human beings, by nature tend to look and act at this evolution and he will test, challenge, and invite you to start thinking differently during and after his keynote.
Smart mobility and digitization are changing our lives - and our mobility. Alternative drive systems are taking over the roads, cities are being redeveloped with new modes of transport or a multimodal mix, and intelligent systems are linking modes of transport with the infrastructure. In the future, mobility will contribute more than ever to improving quality of life, safety, and environmental and climate protection. The future of mobility remains exciting: Rapid technological progress is opening up entirely new possibilities for the future car. Thanks to automated driving, we can be chauffeured from door to door in self-driving vehicles. Traffic jams, accidents, and environmental damage could soon be a thing of the past.
Constantin Schwaab, serial entrepreneur and founder of Wirelane learned to cope with transformation pressure as a skateboarder and graffiti artist in the early 1990s. Today, we’ve entered a post-traumatic Covid-19 phase, characterized by global uncertainty and disorientation in a world that changes at unprecedented speed. But there’s also hope: scientific breakthroughs and technological convergence point the way to the future. Societies and companies are facing a pressing need to rethink existing behavioral patterns and modes of how they do business, collaborate and coexist. This transformation pressure is catalyzed by intervals of natural disasters, causing unpredictable cost for current and future generations. One of the biggest challenges is the reduction of emissions from the consumption of fossil fuels. Emobility is on the verge of mass adoption and will help to unlock the potential of alternative forms of mobility as well as the re-design of urban space.
The EV charging infrastructure needs to accommodate an exponential market growth and a wide range of charging use-cases, which means EV charging providers must be able to up-scale their network while broadening their offerings, and providing a seamless charging experience to drivers.
During the session we will share our experience with large-scale network deployments, and showcase real-world examples of realized business flexibility, operational excellence, proven scalability and more.
We will also shed light on a range of different implementation approaches - from building an inhouse software solution to an out-of-the-box implementation OR a flexible approach that focuses on purchasing a core solution and expanding it with self-development based on APIs – which will enable market players to address their challenges today and future-proof their business for the challenges of tomorrow.
ISO15118 is gaining traction and the first productive Plug&Charge (PnC) Ecosystem and V2G Root PKI for convenient and secure authentication, authorization and billing is the enabler of the future EV charging experience. eMobility pioneers such as leading OEMs, eMobility Service Providers and Charge Point Operators are joining Hubject’s PnC-Ecosystem, the only market-ready solution to date.
During this workshop, we will give insights and lessons learned for a smooth Plug&Charge Quick2Market implementation to position yourself at the forefront of the secure and convenient charging experience.

Let's kick off day 2 at ICNC21!
In the year 2025, data will be the fundament for nearly every mobility service. Mobility data is central to designing relevant offerings and ensuring operational excellence. Connecting different sources of data, matching, and merging to create new services and products is key to accelerate adoption.
Sometimes users have no idea what data is being collected and utilized. All too often, this lack of transparency and ownership is fuelling distrust toward these offerings, decelerating the rate of adoption.
How can we merge the interests of new services with privacy and data protection - is there a scenario where business and users benefits are alike?
The industry is moving more and more towards automation of processes in terms of customer experience to realize scalability and thus implement the mass market. But does this make sense at all, or does the end consumer suffer from a non-customized customer experience? Should companies focus more on customers' individual demands or make scalability the focus, or does one not exclude the other?
Electric car Charging as fast as gasoline is the aim? Soon we will be able to recharge your electric vehicle as quickly and efficiently as a traditional gasoline fill-up.
Solid-state batteries could produce up to 45% more power than those using liquid electrolytes, while non-flammable, solid electrolytes mean the risk of fire threatened by current technology is eliminated. Expect to see these batteries first in upmarket and pricey long-range electric vehicles.
eMobility is on the verge of mass adoption, a different type of market entrant becomes highly relevant – off-industry players. By now, most of the big automotive OEMs, utilities companies and energy service companies have recognized the value in the industry and established themselves with various business models.
But how can off-industry players set foot in this highly dynamic sector and benefit from ongoing governmental incentives?
In our “market entry workshop” at the ICNC21 we will explore various opportunities for new market entrants, focusing on off-industryplayers. In the course of it, we will discuss different integration clusters, best practices and how Hubject can accelerate your journey in becoming a well-established and profitable eMobility player.
CharIN’s work on the improvement of Interoperability between EV & EVSE will be explained. DEKRA and KERI are leading the Qualification Team. Together with the Focus Group experts the required test cases have been validated on 3 different test systems. One of these can be seen in the exhibition. Keysight Technologies will explain how their test system runs the test cases to confirm the conformity of charging products.Register here
