Erni, and Prof. Thomas R. Koehler, CEO, CE21 - Gesellschaft für Kommunikationberatung mbH, expert for future technologies.

Christoph Erni is the founder and CEO of Juice Technology AG, the Swiss manufacturer of charging stations and solutions. Around 20 years ago, he set up his own business consultancy, Erni Associates AG. Noticing the lack of decent charging solutions in 2014, he made a snap decision to enter the manufacturing business and founded Juice Technology AG. The company secured pole position in this segment in its very first year of business with the Juice Booster 1 portable 22 kW charging station – and it has stayed there ever since.
Lars Thomsen is one of the world's leading futurologists. The trend and futurologist, born in Hamburg in 1968, is considered one of the most influential experts for the future of energy, mobility and smart networks. He advises entrepreneurs, companies, institutions and government-related agencies in Europe on the development of future strategies and business models of the future.
Lars Thomsen lives with his family on Lake Zurich in Switzerland. He is a sought-after keynote speaker at national and international congresses and conferences. His lectures inspire various auditoriums.
Thomas R. Koehler is CEO of German technology consultancy CE21 and a board member of Swiss charging specialist JUICE TECHNOLOGY. Thomas has a degree in business informatics from Wuerzburg University and was appointed research professor from the Center of International Innovation at Hankou University (CN). He has founded multiple companies (web development, software) and has a background in strategy consulting. He is the author of more than a dozen books on technology topics, including the English language books “Reorganizing Data and Voice Networks” (Artech House), “Understanding Cyber Risk” (Routledge Publishers / Taylor&Francis) and “The Digital Transformation of the Automobile” (Mediamanufaktur).
Johannes Reichel is Head of Test + Technik at the specialist logistics magazine LOGISTRA and the newspaper Transport from Huss Verlag. The trained editor and journalist was one of the first in the industry to spot the future importance of topics such as the combination of cargo bikes and microdepots on the agenda.
