Electrification of the transport and mobility sectors in the Asia Pacific region has been slow to pick up, except for in countries such as China and Japan. Supportive policies have helped these countries achieve their mandates. Other Asian countries such as India, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines and Indonesia have established or are beginning to draft comprehensive policies to develop the EV ecosystem. Australia and New Zealand have also taken steps to encourage a transition to e-mobility.

Global Transmission’s virtual conference on ‘EV Charging Infrastructure Asia’ (second edition) had speakers from across Asian EV value chain speak about the current status of EVs and EV charging infrastructure, market size and opportunity for EVs, policy and regulatory developments across the key EV markets, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the EV charging industry.

China being the largest EV market, not just in Asia but in the world, the experience of one of its key charging infrastructure providers, Star Charge would be interesting to look at. Zheng Junyi, Senior Vice President, Star Charge spoke about its EVSE delivery experience in China, emerging technology trends, R&D initiatives, partnerships with automakers and charging volume trends among other topics.
