Electric Vehicles Asia Conference

Part of Future Cities Week

Singapore, Singapore

Powering the Next Wave of Electric Vehicles in Asia
Driving Up Demand for EVs| Strategic Infrastructure Planning

Asia is a hotspot for greening our future. Future cities are looking forward to electrifying mobility as the region's key players including Singapore, Thailand, China and South Korea are shifting gears to deploy Electric Vehicles (EV) as a more energy-efficient, cost-effective and sustainable solution in public and private transport. However, challenges such working together with governments to get support, influencing consumer perception and transforming city infrastructure still stand in the way of actualising 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. The conference will feature the latest insights and generate excellent networking opportunities with leading regulators and associations, vehicle OEMs, power and utility companies, independent charging station operators, ride-sharing and transport companies, and battery and technology solution providers.
