Please note that the focus of the E-Mobility Power System Integration Symposium is on the integration of large-scale E-Mobility solutions into power systems. Grid integration solutions, charging infrastructure and storage are main topics, not electric vehicle development. Due to this focus, only plug-in vehicle solutions are relevant. That includes the pure plug-in electric vehicle (PEV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) as well as Vehicle-to-Grid solutions.
