Automotive and Mobility Forum 2023 -
Navigating the Intersection of Automotive Innovation, Sustainable Energy and Safety
This event is an excellent opportunity to gain insights from leading experts and to network with fellow professionals who are passionate about sustainable and safe mobility. This year, we welcome back our longstanding partner Gary Silberg, Partner & Global Automotive Sector Leader at KPMG US. He will deliver a keynote on his latest research and market observation and moderate our thought-provoking panel discussion on the future of electric vehicles, autonomous driving, challenges and opportunities in the battery supply chain as well as new technologies and accident prevention.
Part 1: Keynote: “Sexy Realism - Automotive's New Reality”
delivered by Gary Silberg | KPMG | Partner Global Automotive Sector Leader
A new survey from KPMG of 500 global auto executives found they now expect just over one-third of global auto sales to be electric by 2030, down from nearly two-thirds a year earlier. And one-third of automotive leaders don’t see autonomous vehicles being commercially available this decade. With only so much money to spend, auto executives are putting resources into EVs at the expense of AVs. Some 64% of US auto executives said they are very or extremely likely to sell off non-strategic parts of their business over the next few years to help pay for EV investments. “When we asked these same questions last year, it was all rainbows and butterflies,” KPMG’s Silberg said. “But now it’s no longer theoretical and you see this realism.”
Part 2: Panel Discussion "Navigating the Intersection of Automotive Innovation, Sustainable Energy and Safety"
This panel will cover a variety of best case practices around the growth and need of electric vehicles and the importance of accident prevention. It will also showcase a flagship project at the Paradox Basin outside Moab, Utah, where the extraction of lithium in late 2025 is planned to support the rising demand of the US battery manufacturing industry while reducing the dependency of imported products.
