HALBAN To enhance awareness on electric cars and the electric mobility in the region, the German University of Technology in Oman (GUtech) is proud to be the official Academic Partner of the second annual eMobility Forum Oman to be held on 20 January in Muscat.
When asked about the collaboration with GUtech, Ben Pullen, CEO of Global EVRT, said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with GUtech for our second eMobility Forum Oman. The event is designed to help business and government leaders understand the coming wave of disruptive innovation being unleashed by electric vehicles. The global shift to electric mobility is an inevitability and the forum will help ensure that Oman does not get left behind.”
Dr. Oualid Ali, Director of Training and Smart Solutions Centre (TSSC) at GUtech will give one of the keynote speeches on smart cities entitled “Electric vehicles for future smart and sustainable cities: opportunities and challenges for Oman”. “In my talk I will present the challenges and opportunities of the adoption of electric vehicles in the capital Muscat and overall in Oman. As examples of such challenges, I would like to mention the so-called ‘government buy-in’, in terms of regulation and the ‘citizen buy-in’ and adoption of electric vehicles and the infrastructure upgrade such as charging stations.” Said Dr. Oualid. In addition, students from the Mechanical Engineering Club at GUtech will have the chance to test-drive some of the latest electric car models from Renault, GM, Chevrolet and Tesla.
