Brisbane, Australia – Dr David Finn, the CEO and co-founder of Tritium, a world leader in electric vehicle (EV) DC fast charging technology, will deliver a plenary presentation at the upcoming Asia-Pacific Cities Summit and Mayor’s Forum 2019 in Brisbane. The plenary session, titled “Sustainability of Cities” will feature Finn who will dive into the topic of High-Power Electric Vehicle Charging.
“Our vision for electric vehicles is not just about how fast you can charge – which many people won’t know is approaching parity with the time it takes to refuel – but how and why you charge it,” said Finn. “We have developed a concept called Energy Freedom™ which will change the very way we think about electric vehicles (EVs) and their interaction with the home and workplace, and it’s a concept that will ultimately enable an e-mobility and zero-emissions driving future.
“We have already cut the time it takes to charge an EV from hours to minutes, and with the rate of development we expect to see further innovation in the near future, leveraging the power of growth in an untapped renewable energy storage asset: the electric vehicle’s battery.”
Finn’s plenary will be followed by Chris Mills, the CEO of Evie Networks, who will explore the role of E-Mobility Hubs as a means for delivering sustainable multi-modal transports in major cities as they deal with growing congestion.

The Asia Pacific Cities Summit (APCS) and Mayors’ Forum, July 7-10, at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre is focused on bringing business, industry and cities from across the world together to enable them to build relationships and effectively contribute to the success and sustainability of cities into the future. The APCS attracts city leaders and key influencers looking to engage with companies who can provide innovative urban solutions to cities.
“Making cities sustainable is one of the great challenges of our time, but with that challenge comes an opportunity: as we are seeing first-hand across the world, businesses and cities are increasingly focused on e-mobility and climate-friendly transport initiatives, and we’re beginning to see the rollout of the necessary infrastructure to drive these initiatives forward,” said Finn. “The ACPS is the perfect event for experts and leaders to start a dialogue on the best way to progress these initiatives and ensure we enable smarter, cleaner and thriving cities.”
