The great interest in the 2nd international eCarTec Paris Conference & Exhibition that took place in the Hotel Pullmann Paris Rive Gauche on March 30 and 31, 2011 was proof of the promising future of the market for electric mobility.

The event focused on new business models and new players, projects and regions, energy and infrastructure, storage - energy and fuel cells as well as on research highlights.
