Panel 1: The Tipping Point for Electric Vehicles

According to the International Energy Agency, the global fleet of electric vehicles grew 54% in 2017 and will skyrocket from 3 million to 125 million by 2030. From sustainable policy initiatives, to the decreasing price of batteries, to the development of EV charging infrastructure in some areas, various factors may help catalyze this trend. However, many remain skeptical of the long-term affordability and feasibility of EVs. On this panel, three experts with experience in EV charging infrastructure and finance, market analytics and energy efficiency, and oil and gas will discuss the future of electric vehicles and the transportation sector.
