Recently Volkswagen CEO Herbert Diess pushed VW senior leadership to make urgent reforms saying, “We don’t want to end up like Nokia.” The auto industry is going through a big transformation and electric cars are a major factor driving this change.
Battery technology is advancing fast and the electric grid is becoming cleaner at an accelerating pace, so the shift to electric vehicles (EVs) provides an opportunity to drastically reduce our transportation energy consumption, air pollution, and climate gas emissions.

In this webinar, we will talk about how these markets are developing, explore the market drivers on different continents, and look at how this will affect the automotive and energy industries.
