ABB launching World EV Day

ABB, world EV day

The inaugural World EV Day, being launched by ABB and Green.TV, will be a day of global e-mobility appreciation. Current and prospective drivers of electric vehicles, alongside local transport authorities and fleet operators, will be encouraged to recognise the crucial role they play in driving the shift to sustainable road transport and a zero-emission future for all.

The day will become an annual institution and will also recognise the vital role which reliable and fast-charging infrastructure, grid reinforcement and the integration of renewable power generation must play in enabling a truly sustainable transport ecosystem.
