Event Details

Electric vehicles and e-Mobility are shaping the future of not just the automotive industry but the transport industry overall, on land, in the air and on water. The country that manages to transition to an electric transport dominated economy powered by clean energy can help fulfil numerous goals including local air quality goals, transportation resiliency and mobility objectives.

As transport moves towards electrification, the interoperability of traditionally siloed electricity, transport, and building sectors to interact in unprecedented ways becomes even more critical, creating technical, institutional, and economic opportunities. But how best can countries ensure that traditional power sectors can transition to meet the long term power needs of future eMobility strategies? And how important is public vs private funding to develop these breakthrough technologies?

Join our panel of experts as we explore the future of eMobility and how the private sector and municipal governments are racing towards a more sustainable future for transport trends.

Please note that this event is limited to senior-level executives and per invitation only. If you are not an existing member of The Economist Intelligence Corporate Network, but would like to learn how you can attend our events, please contact us at eicn_hongkong@economist.com
