Blink Charging Exec to Participate in World Economic Forum

Chairman and CEO Michael Farkas will discuss the acceleration of deployment of advanced energy solutions worldwide.

Blink Charging Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Michael D. Farkas, will be participating at the World Economic Forum’s inaugural Advanced Energy Solutions meeting in Geneva, providing business perspectives and sharing input on the acceleration of deployment of advanced energy solutions worldwide.

The newly formed Advanced Energy Solutions Community was created to engage leaders from the frontier, fast-growing segments of the energy industry, established champions and financiers to identify ways to accelerate deployment at scale of advanced energy solutions, the company says.

“I’m looking forward to joining this distinguished group of energy leaders and thinkers and help shape the narrative for global policy and at the World Economic Forum, where business and policy converge to improve the lives of people in an economical and responsible manner,” said Michael D. Farkas, executive chairman and chief executive officer of Blink Charging. “To meet our energy demands today and into the future, governments and industries will need to work together to find common ground and develop policies that are balanced in protecting natural resources, creating sustainable outcomes and allowing for economic growth.”

The Advanced Energy Solutions Community aims to drive global and systemic collaborations on advanced energy solutions and address technology governance by translating global dialogues into local actions on regulation and policy. The community looks to promote leading solutions by engaging established companies across the energy technology industries such as Blink, to speed up deployment of advanced solutions from years to months. It engages leaders who enable an advanced energy system in clean fuels and electricity, storage, demand management, services and carbon management.
