The LEV Conference will be held in Taipei on 14 and 15 March shortly before the Taipei Cycle Show (16 - 19 March). Industry players with something interesting to share with colleagues can still register to present their papers. Speakers will offer a global view on trends and technologies, as well as the different regulatory frameworks.
Participants will benefit from top quality speakers. The HiTech Energy R+D center at Hsinchu Science Park offers the opportunity to network in a relaxed atmosphere, before the Taipei Cycle Show starts on the 16th of March.

The LEV Conference runs over 2 days. The first is dedicated to the market, marketing and innovation; the second to global regulation, policies and opportunities.
Market, Marketing, Innovation
On day 1 the focus will fall on markets, marketing and innovative energy storage. Among the speakers will be Larry Pizzi of Currie Technology, who wants to interest Americans in e-vehicles. Han Goes of Q Square Consultants will talk about the electric bike as Trojan horse of the bicycle industry. The limits of resilience of the pedelec will be the topic of Susanne Brüsch's presentation. She recently submitted pedelecs to an extreme test in Morocco.
Further discussion will center around batteries and ultra-condensators (their application and application potential in the LEV sector). Speakers of well-known firms such as Panasonic, Samsung, Phylion and testing authority TÜV Rheinland are expected to make appearances. The day will be concluded with the question of how to dispose of batteries. Then participants will get ample opportunity for questions and discussion.
Global Policies and Opportunities
The second day will be dedicated to external influences on the market. Robert Stüssi will look at the influence of big energy suppliers and political decision makers on the development of the LEV sector. Actual themes such as CE, EMV and GS will be discussed by Marco Brust of test laboratory Velotech. Shortly before the lunch break, the main observations flowing from the latest ExtraEnergy test will be discussed. The performances of individual vehicles tested by ExtraEnergy will be put under the magnifying glass.
Finally, a number of manufacturers of motors will present their products. Kaz Suzuki of Panasonic will explain the background to the transfer of motor technologies from PCT to OEM. Ortlinghaus and BionX will present products from their ranges, and so will Polaris. The latter will also field questions in the discussion round.
You may still register as speaker and/or participant in the LEV Conference.
Since 1997 the LEV Conference has been offering manufacturers, traders, specialist staff in the areas of research and development and the specialist media the opportunity to inform themselves extensively about the LEV sector, visions and technological advances.
