Vehicle-to-Grid Conference in Münster on April 10 to 11, 2024

After successful editions of the conference in Münster (2022) and Aachen (2023) with over 130 participants from industry and research, the international conference Vehicle-to-Grid, Vehicle-to-Home, and Smart Charging will take place this year on 10 and 11 April at the MCC in Münster.

The international conference, which takes place as part of the Battery Congress, will provide current insights into Vehicle-to-Grid, Vehicle-to-Home, and Smart Charging. With the help of concrete practical examples, potential analyses, and an outlook on foreseeable developments soon, participants will be able to examine which concrete steps are necessary for their respective companies and organisations in the near future to take on a pioneering role in electromobility. Furthermore, the exchange with professionals and experts from different fields will create a broad knowledge of V2X.

The conference is organised by HDT (Haus der Technik). The Institute for Power Electronics and Electrical Drives (ISEA) of RWTH Aachen University is responsible for the professional management.

Technical and systemic perspectives from industry, business, and academia

Renowened international speakers will shed light on the ecosystems Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G), Vehicle-to-Home (V2H), and Smart Charging (V1G) from various perspectives such as vehicles, charging infrastructure, pilots and demonstrators, system integration and electricity market integration.
Dr. Christopher Hecht, host and initiator of the conference, summarises the importance of the technology and current challenges: “The energy price crisis, increasing shares of renewable energies, and a slow expansion of transmission capacities are already pushing various forms of smart charging into the market. Bidirectional charging is still facing challenges in the regularory and technical domain, but first products were announced for 2024 and the value of flexibility from vehicle batteries is well understood in the market.

In addition to presentations from selected international speakers, there will be an exhibition and numerous opportunities to network with participants from industry, business, and research.

Attendance at the conference also includes free admission to the keynote presentations and all poster presentations at the parallel Advanced Battery Power conference as well as the evening event.

The English-language conference will be held in person. However, online participation is also possible.
