Zero Emission Becomes Real in Next-Generation Mobility
The European Union intends to cut greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 and has the goal be climate-neutral by 2050. Passenger cars and vans are collectively responsible for around 15% of total EU emissions of CO2. To meet the 2050 climate goal, road transport CO2 emissions would then have to decline more than three times as quickly (5.5% per year) from 2035 to 2050. Can such ambitious vehicle CO2 targets of the European Union and also those of other countries be achieved?
CS Chua will discuss the contribution of semiconductor companies to enable next-generation zero-emission mobility. Using electric vehicles, he explains how it is technically feasible to meet CO2 targets for vehicles while also meeting other crucial factors, such as extension of vehicle range, improvement of charging speed and the availability of a reliable charging infrastructure – with electricity from renewable energy sources. He discusses the market prospects for electric vehicles from 2023 to 2030 and the mix of semiconductor materials such as silicon, silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) used during this period.
CS Chua oversees regional sales, marketing and distribution, supply chain, R&D, and manufacturing. He is also responsible for strategy, quality management, human resources, and communications for the Asia Pacific region with local presence in Australia, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam. He has held the current role since 2017. CS joined Infineon in 2000 and has taken on roles in product marketing for industrial microcontrollers and regional marketing covering Asia Pacific’s automotive electronics segment. Previously as the Vice President of Automotive Regional Centre. CS has a Bachelor of Electrical and Electronics Engineering degree from the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.
