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:
Our speakers are experienced eMobility experts excited to share their vision.
Join our workshop sessions to explore and discuss catalysts that will drive the industry forward.
Connect and exchange with diverse industry players from a global market.

The agenda is continously updated with great panels and interesting keynotes.
The topic of eMobility is currently at the center of public attention and is steadily gaining relevance. Companies are becoming more sustainable, significant investments are being made, the automotive industry is distancing itself from the further development and production of combustion engines, climate measures are initiated, cities and municipalities are working on smart city concepts, end consumers are switching to electric cars, and more and more options are emerging in terms of charging infrastructure.
What will it develop like until 2025 and why is the year so important for the industry. Let's look together into the future of eMobility and identify opportunities and challenges to shape the future together.
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.
More and more cities are ambitiously working to make the urban landscape more sustainable in terms of mobility. Zero emissions zones are being set up, public transport such as buses is being electrified, and urban charging is being expanded. But which cities are in the fast lane here? Can pilot projects be transferred to other cities and regions? Will the experience be passed on?
Let’s welcome Drakes Star Partners to the stage, hosting an exciting panel discussion on sustainable investments within the eMobility market.
Who will conquer the eMobility sector next, and for which sectors does it offer added value? If you look at the retail sector, you can see that eMobility is part of the business. Parking spaces for electric vehicles are being set up, charging infrastructure is being installed to make the shopping experience even more attractive for the customer. But this change also brings challenges for the newcomers: How will charging power be billed? How high are the costs for building and operating the charging stations? Which locations are suitable? Are there subsidies available?
Let's search together for the most innovative eMobility start-up of 2021. Through an elevator pitch, the four finalists have the opportunity to convince the ICNC21 jury and secure the trophy. The stage belongs to the newcomers!
Why is 2025 such an important year in the eMobility world? Battery electric vehicles will remain money losers for the next several years
“OFFLINERS” WILL BE LEFT BEHIND! FUTURE ACCESS TO MOBILITY IS DIGITAL
In the years 2025+, there has been a significant increase in the distribution and prevalence of digital services supporting mobility. Sharing offerings leads to a more economical distribution of means of transportation. The introduction of autonomous driving offers new opportunities for individual mobility. Future mobility services are supported by numerous technological innovations that can be operated by digitally inexperienced users, for instance, via fingerprints or with voice-operated systems.
Between ownership, transparency, and added value – Mobility Data as Currency.
Anonymity is an illusion! Future mobility without the use of personal data won’t work!
Companies already collect a lot of data these days, and they will be collecting even more in the future. Today and in the future, customers will no longer have full control of their data.
In the year 2025, user data will be the foundation for nearly every mobility offering. Many users have no idea what data is being collected and utilized. They are happy to provide their data to get cheaper fares or to be able to make use of services customized to their specific needs. Digital assistants will be used in the future to control and manage personal data.
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.
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?
