Emirates News Agency – Second EV Innovation Summit kicks off in Abu Dhabi


ABU DHABI, 29th May, 2023 (WAM) — Suhail bin Mohammed Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, today inaugurated the second Electric Vehicle Innovation Summit (EVIS2023) at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC).

The summit spans three days and includes extensive exhibits throughout the event.

The exhibit space has been expanded to accommodate more than 100 products on display, including vehicles and EV service providers. In addition, EVIS2023 includes a two-day conference that attracts a lot of attention with more than 100 speakers and more than 50 sessions covering a wide range of topics related to the current and future field of e-mobility.

The summit aims to promote a shift from reliance on fossil fuels to electric vehicles, thereby freeing the planet from the environmental impact of carbon dioxide and other emissions. According to Statista, transportation accounts for 17 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions, second only to the electricity sector. The global auto industry is under pressure to embrace electric vehicles.

Organized by Abu Dhabi-based Nirvana Holding, the summit succeeded in attracting global interest in the MENA region, a promising market with significant growth and business opportunities in the coming years. The exhibition attracted global household brands such as Geely, Kaiwei, Tesla, BYD, and polyester. More than 50 electric vehicles from around the world were on display at the show. The event also attracts global EV service providers such as charging infrastructure, dealers and more.

The two-day summit will bring together delegates, experts and mobile industry representatives from dozens of countries to discuss the current situation as well as future challenges and opportunities. It will include more than 75 sessions, including keynotes, presentations and panel discussions, covering the complete value chain of the electric vehicle industry. For attendees, it will be an invaluable networking opportunity to share ideas and insights and strike business deals.

The first day of the summit attracted thousands of attendees and visitors, either to attend the summit or simply to learn about the latest developments in the industry. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to test drive the latest EV models on the market in an outdoor EV test drive. This allows them to gain first-hand experience with these cutting-edge vehicles.

A notable new addition this year is the Technology Park, an innovation center showcasing the latest advances in electric vehicles. This dedicated area will focus on cutting-edge electric vehicle technologies developed by universities and technology incubators, shaping the future of the industry.

EVIS2023 runs until May 31 and is expected to attract thousands of visitors eager to explore the vast possibilities of this new form of sustainable transport.
