LEV Conference 2007 was held in Hsinchu, Taiwan, on March 20-23. Speakers from around the globe presented new trends in light electric vehicle technology and market development. Report and pictures here.
The LEV Conference offered four days of concentrated information on light electric vehicles including hands-on riding experience. Around 150 visitors from Europe, USA and Asia attended the conference and were provided with a high-profile update of the latest tech-
nological developments, standardization, market trends and international legislation. The organizers, Extra-
Energy from Germany and Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) from Taiwan, were pleased with the outcome of the conference, which was met with great positive response despite its late announcement. The head quarter of ITRI in Hsinchu offered an excellent facility for lectures, discussions, display of exhibits and test riding.
ExtraEnergy and ITRI had agreed with show manager TAITRA to hold the conference on separate days from the show and not at the same time as in previous years. This allowed key representatives from the bicycle industry to attend the LEV Conference without missing important business during the show.
For LEV Conference 2008, the dates just after Taipei Cycle Show are currently being discussed. This year’s experience has shown that just before the show many companies are still too busy with last-minute preparations to attend the conference.
