The transport industry is at the cusp of an electric revolution. As the urgent need to decarbonise the sector forces a re-imagination of how to move people and goods across the globe, electrification has emerged as a key strategy in its transformation.
By 2040, more than half of new cars sold globally will be electric vehicles — this disruption will have deep implications and requires thoughtful planning if countries are to reap the benefits of cleaner air, energy security, and more affordable transport modes.
As a major city in Asia, Singapore has recently accelerated its electric ambitions, announcing bold policy steps that will spur EV uptake and ramp up EV charging infrastructure. The city state pledged to install 60,000 EV charging points nationwide by 2030, and have all vehicles — including its 5,400 public buses — run on cleaner energy by 2040.
However, the road ahead is fraught with challenges. The growth of EVs will need to be carefully integrated into Singapore’s energy system, while mobility providers will have to re-evaluate their business models in response to the transition, even as new data-driven technologies such as autonomous vehicles (AVs) start to emerge.
What are the policy gaps that need to be addressed, how can ecosystem players collaborate to accelerate this transition, how will Singapore finance it and which innovations will dominate the future landscape?
The Future of Mobility is a thought leadership forum organised by Eco-Business that convenes high-level decision makers from the mobility sector’s entire value chain to discuss the latest developments in advancing sustainable transport and achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Asia Pacific.
In 2021, Eco-Business will be convening two events for this forum:
Themed ‘The Electric Revolution’, these dialogues will discuss the challenges and opportunities in the electrification of mobility, and pathways for achieving low carbon, equitable and resilient transportation systems.
The Singapore forum will be a hybrid event with in-person and virtual attendees.
