E-ready for take-off! Electric Flying and Charging Symposium

Tuesday September 19th 2023 / 13:00 - 17:00

Following the highly successful international V2G Symposium held last March, ElaadNL, in collaboration with the Open Charge Alliance (OCA), is once again organizing an inspiring gathering focused on a current and groundbreaking theme: How do we rapidly, cleanly, and intelligently charge electric aircraft?

Experts, stakeholders, and policy specialists from both domestic and international backgrounds will share their knowledge about the (near) future of electric aviation, what’s already possible, what’s in development, and what we need in terms of charging technology. Speakers and program can be found below this page.

The symposium will be conducted in the English language.
