Bidirectional charging of Electric Vehicles: challenges and opportunities for a growing decentralised energy resource in the BeNeLux region

21th March 2024  |  11.00 AM – 12.30 PM

This 2nd webinar offers a deep dive into the critical topic of bidirectional charging of electric vehicles in the BeNeLux region. It serves as a platform for stakeholders to explore innovative solutions and collaborate in advancing good practices in the region to alleviate local congestions by making best use of V2X.

Beyond a presentation of the benefits of V2X and an overview of EU legislative provisions encouraging e-mobility, DNV will assess national frameworks in the Netherlands and Belgium, focusing on regulatory challenges and opportunities. Enersafe Capital will present a groundbreaking servitisation model for the replacement of both public and private car fleets, while GOPACS will discuss how V2X can address local congestions.
