Powering the Next Wave of Electric Vehicles in Asia
Ensuring EV-Ready Infrastructure | Addressing Consumer Concerns | Driving Mass E-Mobility

Due to looming environmental concerns including pollution and traffic congestion in Asia, a large focus is now on the Asian market with 56% of EV sales coming from East Asia and 37% of Southeast Asia open to EV purchase. As a result, governments in the region including Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines and Indonesia, are pushing for EV initiatives as a more energy-efficient, cost-effective and sustainable solution in public and private transport.

However, challenges such as establishing EV-ready infrastructure, low uptake of EVs due to consumer concerns and the slow electrification of mass transport still stand in the way of actualising full-scale EV adoption. How can we resolve consumer adoption concerns and realise returns on infrastructure investments to quicken EV adoption?

Back in its third edition, our Electric Vehicles Asia Summit returns in 2020 to navigate roadblocks and maximize opportunities for Asia's EV market by ensuring EV-ready infrastructure, addressing consumer concerns to increase demand and driving mass e-mobility. The conference will feature the latest insights and generate excellent networking opportunities with leading regulators and associations, vehicle OEMs, power utilities, independent charging station operators, ride-sharing and transport companies, fleet operators and battery and technology solution providers.
