Keynote by Steef Korfker, Chairman DC Global E-Mobility Forum

The Diplomatic Council will be represented at the conference with Steef Korfker, Chairman DC Global E-Mobility Forum, who will deliver a keynote speech on „Sustainable and environmentally friendly transportation infrastructure”. Steef Korfker will introduce the three-tier model for the switch to a globally sustainable energy supply which focuses on electric mobility as the key element. The DC, a global organisation headed by diplomats and business leaders, supports authorities in respect to gradually convert their transportation infastructure to e-mobility. In Sri Lanka, the DC already has successfully completed a pilot project which is considered a flagship project worldwide. The project aims at the conversion of the three-wheelers, which are used by a majority of the population, to electric mobility. “In a large part of Asia, electric tuk tuks can play a major role in reducing smog. Funding programmes of the government can contribute to achieving a turnaround in the energy transition.” says Steef Korfer.
