Electric Vehicle & Sustainability Summit
November 19-22, 2019
Join global business leaders at the exclusive resort town and premier sustainability destination of Whistler, B.C., for three days of thought leadership, building partnerships and opportunities in the electric vehicle market.
Electric vehicle sales have taken off, with unprecedented growth predicted over the next decade. Transportation remains one of the largest sources of pollution – a final frontier in the battle against climate change – yet automobile drivers are increasingly going electric and governments across the world have become serious about phasing out gas-fuelled cars.
Huge amounts of investment will be needed to build out EV charging infrastructure networks, which have yet to catch up with vehicle stock trends. While there are many unanswered questions around emerging business models and sources of liquidity, traditional infrastructure and energy investors have already entered the fray.
Still further funding will be needed to satisfy the rising demand for sustainable power that will accompany the mass adoption of EVs. With global renewable energy production already surging, sustainability will be at the heart of the transition.
