“The establishment of the Philippine Battery Consortium helps to address concerns on battery manufacturing, maintenance and other costs will be discussed during the 11th Philippine Electic Vehicle Summit,” said EVAP President Edmund Araga. “We are engaging in collaboration activities with industry players with assistance from our ASEAN neighbors in coming up with an alternative battery component production utilizing indigenous minerals, considering the significant cost contribution of batteries in the overall acquisition cost of EVs.” he added.

 

The Philippine Electric Vehicle Summit will also run learning sessions and share how the other countries in the Asean region were successful in the development of the supply chain for Electric Vehicles, electric ride-hailing apps, implemented e-bus and e-taxi fleets without diminishing the safety of the riding public and the operations for EVs, with battery manufacturing, servicing and maintenance altogether.
