ASSURED workshop: Strategies & needs on EV fast charging infrastructure for urban freight & service trips

The EU-funded ASSURED project aims at boosting the electrification of urban commercial vehicles and their integration with high power fast charging infrastructure.

The aim of this workshop is to discuss strategies and needs of cities and operators for upscaling electric full-size commercial fleets and fast charging infrastructure, with a focus on urban freight and service trips.

The workshop will open with a series of short presentations by city representatives and operators across Europe on strategies, needs and practical solutions in urban areas from different perspectives:

  • Local authorities (confirmed so far): Barcelona, Oslo, Transport for London
  • Operators: BREYTNER Transport, SEUR – DPD Group, GreenWay – VOLTIA

Breakout sessions will address views and needs of public authorities, urban freight private stakeholders and charging infrastructure operators on (super) fast charging of urban commercial vehicles. Topics for discussion:

  • Integration of electrification strategies into local plans
  • Procurement, incentives and support
  • Charging infrastructure

Who shall attend?

Cities and regions, logistics service providers, grid and charging infrastructure operators and other stakeholders are invited to attend the workshop and exchange about own views and experiences.

EEVConvention on Policies and Best Practices

The workshop will take place back-to back with the EEVConvention on Policies and Best Practices (, Oslo, 25th of September), which includes among the speakers Noshin Omar, ASSURED coordinator and Director of the Battery Innovation Center of VUB, and Karen Vancluysen, Secretary General of Polis Network.
