The energy revolution in
Germany is in full swing, including within the field of electromobility. Despite existing challenges, the Federal Government is optimistic that one million electric cars could be driving on German roads by 2020. At the same time,
Germany has the ability to occupy a leading global position in electromobility due to its highly innovative research infrastructure. In order to realize this target, the Federal Government will invest
one billion euros towards this sector in research and development. Germany Trade & Invest will have experts at this year's Battery+Storage event in
October 8 to 10, 2012 to inform visitors about the latest business opportunities in the industry.
Several business collaborations have depicted
Germany as a paramount location for future technologies such as electromobility. "Just recently, Ford and Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, announced working cooperatively in order to offer its customers a European solution for electric vehicle charging," said

Germany a center for innovation, but it also has the potential to become
Europe's largest market for electric cars and the corresponding peripheral equipment. The acceptance of electric cars in
Germany is extremely high. According to a survey by
Germany's largest automobile club, ADAC, 88 percent of respondents favorably viewed the electric car. 74 percent could even imagine purchasing one if the price were affordable.
