As a national event bringing together New Zealand’s entire EV industry, EV World aimed to propel the private and public community into the ‘EV future’ and turn conversations into action. With a robust program of EV industry representatives, adjacent industry representatives and EV technology supporters and investors; delegates heard from fleet managers, government agencies, vehicle manufacturers and suppliers, technology providers and energy companies in a series of seminars and workshops.
On the first day of the conference, business owners, fleet managers and decision makers in businesses were encouraged to discover more about EV technology and to experience and evaluate EVs for their own organisations. During the second day, the general public and green-transport enthusiasts were dazzled by the latest EV models, technology and related products. The event was a prime opportunity for ChargePoint to share the latest in EV Charging technology and innovation.
The team were overwhelmed with New Zealand’s passion for green technology and their keenness to adopt EVs on a broad scale. We look forward to watching the New Zealand EV market expand and being an integral part of this industry growth over the coming years.
