Programme Outline

08:30 – 10:00
SESSION 1 – E-mobility through solar energy: a step towards the energy revolution
Speakers: Moira Toress, Dr Heinz Ossenbrink

The energy revolution cannot exist without solar and electric mobility. How do they complement each other, what could be the connection between two sectors so different? From integrated actors acting in both fields to newcomers, the debate is open whether PV will drive the EV development or the other way around. Time for vehicles-to-grid!

10:00 – 10:20 Coffee Break

10:20 – 11:20
SESSION 2 – PV for transports
Speakers: Martin Fischer (chair), Keiichi Komoto, Dr Eduardo Roman, Dr Bonna Newman

Using PV in transport vehicles implies new constraints and new opportunities. How can we integrate PV and how far PV-driven cars could go? Are we ready for PV-powered vehicles? Is this the beginning of a new era for PV and EV development?

11:20 – 12:15
SESSION 3 – Solar fuels for transports
Speakers: Gaetan Masson (chair), Mathieu Baudrit

With PV electricity costs reaching record-low levels in several places in the world, the production of solar fuels from PV – hydrogen, renewable gas and ammonia – becomes a tangible reality which could change the face of the energy world. With hydrogen as an alternative to battery EVs, the road may be bright for solar powering the future of transports.
