Electric Vehicles and Smart Infrastructure

Energy Research Institute @ NTU
DATE 02 November 2018
TIME 10:00 AM - 01:00 PM
Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands Singapore

The theme for SIEW 2018 is Transforming Energy: Invest, Innovate and Integrate. The EV roundtable will address the opportunities and challenges associated with transforming the energy vector for vehicles from hydrocarbon to electrons, the investment required, the innovation this transformation can enable as well as the integration of multiple ecosystems beyond that of transportation. Within the remit of a “Car lite” vision for Singapore, the electric vehicle can further help contribute towards creating a decarbonised “Car Lite” landscape in Singapore.

The roundtable, envisages 6 to 8 speakers addressing the various dimensions of the theme of SIEW 2018 with respect to electric vehicles. With benefits ranging from zero tail pipe emissions and hence lower emission related respiratory complications, lower carbon foot print contributing towards COP 21 obligations, lower sound pollution within a densely populated city to an enabling platform for new business models and consumer engagement and empowerment through the innovative autonomous vehicle; EVs can play their part in realising the Smart Nation vision. Therefore we need to be able to invest in the right infrastructure, innovate the sector and integrate the EV ecosystem into the larger city ecosystem.
