We will address questions such as: How to maintain the reliability of an electrified transport system? How to ensure an infrastructure that supports the optimal use of the fleet? How to make a smooth transition?

You will hear success stories from Helsinki, Finland and Santiago de Chile – two very different capital cities – and the key findings that the decision-makers in these cities had.
