Chairman, Association for the Development of Electric, Self-Driving and Connected Transport and Infrastructure (AETI)

http://www.aeti.su/

The Association for the Development of Electric, Unmanned and Connected Transport and Infrastructure (RUSSIA)  (“AETI”) was established to promote the comprehensive development of these types of transport, as well as charging infrastructure, based on the common interests of amateurs and professionals of the market of electric vehicles, unmanned and connected transport and infrastructure, aimed at generalizing experience, solving problematic issues, protecting the interests and coordinating the activities of all its members.

In the Russian Federation, strategic decisions have been taken at the state level to support the introduction of electric vehicles and the development of charging infrastructure. However, without an active position of market participants, the development of electric transport and infrastructure can be long and difficult. We propose to combine joint efforts for the active integration of electric and unmanned transport in the urban environment.

AETI mission is to promote the development of electric, unmanned and connected transport and charging infrastructure throughout the Russian Federation.
