What is EVNext 2019 all about?

The EVNext 2019 is India’s only summit dedicated to innovations all along the electric mobility value chain. It comprises a day-long conference that includes showcasing and demonstrations of innovations in the e-mobility sector.

The summit will feature over 30 EV innovations and the innovators/companies behind these innovations.

Who will benefit the most from the EVNext 2019 Summit?

The EVNext 2019 will be invaluable for businesses, entrepreneurs and businesses keen on knowing about the latest innovations in EVs – innovations from both the corporate sector as well as from startups. The Summit will be especially valuable for the following:

  • Top management and strategy professionals from auto, auto ancillary, electrical, power and renewable energy companies
  • Top management from the incumbent EV companies
  • Investors keen on knowing the latest innovations in electric vehicles and e-mobility
  • Entrepreneurs and startups from the EV and cleantech sectors

Why is the EVNext 2019 Summit Unique?

While there are a number of conferences and summits in India for electric vehicles, there is no other summit that focusses solely on the innovations in EVs and E-mobility. This comprehensive platform will bring together, on one stage, all the important innovations and innovators from the Indian EV industry.

While electric mobility and electric vehicles constitute large business opportunities for Indian companies in many sectors (auto, electrical, power & energy, renewables, construction…), it is a challenge to right business opportunity to invest in, for many industry stakeholders. Based on the extensive analyses done by the EVNext team, it is clear that the most attractive opportunities in EV and e-mobility will comprise those that have a significant innovation component. In fact, our interactions with the industry stakeholders reveal that many of them are aware of this as well. As a result, many Indian businesses are actively researching key EV innovations and the innovators behind these.

The EVNext 2019 summit is being organized to satisfy this important need of the industry to identify the key innovations that will drive the Indian e-mobility sector.
