Technical Webinar: EV Charging Challenges and Opportunities

In this webinar, the speaker will talk about his experience with Hong Kong’s EV charging industry, the challenges associated with the ever-increasing demand for the charging facility as more people start driving EVs, and the role of Cornerstone HK in contributing to this acceleration.

In 2008, Tesla launched its first electrical vehicle (EV) on the market, a year after the first release of the Apple iPhone.

In just 13 years’ time, smartphones have evolved and emerged as ubiquitous and incomparable devices in our daily life, whereas EVs remain a mere fraction of vehicles on the road.

There’re no simple answers to the WHY, as it involves stakeholders which are in relation to economic, technological and utility grid challenges. 

Despite these challenges, innovation and technology is also a commitment to longer-term prosperity.

With EV mobility representing the next generation of innovation and an environmentally viable alternative to the traditional vehicle, together with the multiplying effect brought by the brand recognition, amid the growing popularity of EVs, figures show approximately 31.1 million electric cars will be hitting the road by 2030.
