2019 International New Energy Vehicle Forum
The global market for vehicle electrification is expanding. In 2018, more than 1.7 million plug-in and battery electric vehicles were sold worldwide, a nearly 40% increase over 2017. According to McKinsey, the global production of battery electric vehicles is estimated to reach 3.5 million in 2020 and 14.8 million by 2025. Electrification is also considered the prerequisite of other major automotive trends, such as autonomous driving and connected vehicles. Major global automakers have announced aggressive plans for launching electric vehicles by 2022.
The shift away from internal combustion engines to electric vehicles and will have significant consequences for both the automotive assembly and parts manufacturing industries. This trend will disrupt not only existing industries, but also regulatory supervision, infrastructure, energy supply, service providers, consumer behaviour and many others. To embrace this trend, there are major challenges to overcome. This forum has been arranged in order to encourage exchanges, discussions, and cooperation between government agencies and industry players in an attempt to identify feasible solutions to make Taiwan's path to vehicle electrification a smooth one.
Arranged by the ECCT's Mobility committee in partnership with the Ministry of Economic Affairs' Industrial Development Bureau, the Environmental Protection Administration, the Ministry of Transportation and Communication and the European Economic and Trade Office, the forum aims to offer international insights and best practices on two crucial topics of New Energy Vehicle (NEV) development: 1) Policies, and 2) Charging infrastructure & business models. In so doing, the forum aims to promote and synchronise awareness and understanding among Taiwan's government agencies and industries of crucial elements that should be considered during the process of devising NEV development policies, identify action lists for authorities and industries to work on through parallel meetings following discussions at the forum and serve as the beginning of an integrated EU-Taiwan platform on NEV initiatives, which will be followed up with continuous discussions and updates on NEV developments in Europe.
