Two years in the past I went deep and broad on the electrical bike market and associated transformations in CleanTechnica. The 20-article sequence included items on the global market, health implications, innovative disruption, urban planning implications, and design. Since then, electrical bikes have proliferated on the streets and pathways of cities globally.
COVID-19 has turned the dial on ebike gross sales as much as 11, with each producer seeing huge upticks. In the meantime, the legacy bike business is going through the aftermath of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally COVID-19 superspreader event, placing extra pressure on an business that’s been challenged in recent times regardless.
And so, this 12 months, the EBike Future Conference is virtual and I’ll be one of many headliners. The checklist of audio system is broad. Kresimir Hlede of Greyp shall be speaking about his firm’s Android connection platform for ebikes. Scott Montgomery of CrankTank shall be speaking about US-centric ebike traits. Thorsten Heckrath-Rose of ROSE Bikes shall be talking concerning the within the ebike enterprise and the way the business is shifting at light-speed from bricks and mortar to clicks and transport. Don DiCostanzo of Pedego shall be speaking about constructing an organization based mostly on values and the way that shapes their market development. Alec Lim of Singapore-based REEVO shall be talking about their hubless electrical bike particularly for city markets. Romain Erny of Select Paris Area shall be speaking concerning the influence of ebikes on the timeless Metropolis of Gentle. Naroa Coretti Sanchéz of MIT Media Lab will discuss how electrical bikes and small autonomous electrical autos are on the middle of their imaginative and prescient of the town of the long run, one thing I explored in a two-part CleanTech Speak with Anthony Townsend earlier this 12 months (part 1, part 2).
There’s extra within the agenda, however the focus is on a handy three-day world convention, with three hours of displays and Q&A per day within the afternoon in Europe, early morning on North America’s west coast, late morning on North America’s east coast, and night in Asia.
Decide your tickets up here and let your city planning, transportation entrepreneur, and biking contacts find out about it.
