Capacity-Building Breakfast Seminar on e-mobility: OSLO GREEN CAPITAL - HOW TO ELECTRIFY ALL URBAN TRANSPORT BY 2030?


THIS EVENT IS UNFORTUNATELY ALREADY FULLY BOOKED -------------------------- In 2019, Oslo is the European Green Capital, thanks to - among other things - the Norwegian car market being electrified at a record pace. The next ambition for Oslo is to become a zero emission city in 2030 and to electrify all urban transportation: vans, trucks, buses, ferries and heavy contruction machines.

This Event is already fully booked!
No further registrations will be accpeted. We are sorry if you cannot attend, but will provide a summary and information about it shortly on our website about it.

In this breakfast capacity-building seminar we will present inspiring electrification projects, electric vehicle news and outline the next steps towards a completely emission-free transport sector that will help provide healthy, green cities and minimize the urban climate footprint.

Breakfast and coffee will be served from 08:00, program starts at 08:15.
