Green Drinks: Electric Vehicles and What’s Next?

This month, we’re talking Electric Vehicles! David Chou of EV HUB will speak about what they are doing to help build the EV platform in Singapore, while Davide Bonomi of Dufresne talks about the future of batteries in EVs.

In his presentation, Davide addresses the following: “If we want to examine the cost and safety of Electric Cars then we must understand the Battery that powers it. What type of batteries are under the hood of electric cars now and in the future? What are the battery companies behind them? To what extent can we expect them to be cheaper in the next 3 years?”

We are still confirming one more speaker and will update this event page accordingly.

We hope to see you there!
