The Electric Vehicle Association of the Philippines (EVAP) was given the prestigious GEAN Award last May 1 by the Global Electric Vehicle Association Network (GEAN) for its outstanding contributions to the advancement of the EV industry in the Asean (Association of Southeast Asian Nations). The award ceremony took place at the 11th EMobility Expo in Jeju, Korea, where EVAP chair Rommel Juan and chair emeritus Ferdi Raquelsantos proudly accepted the accolade from GEAN chair Daewhan Kim.

EVAP has played a pivotal role in driving the growth of the EV sector in Asean, and has been instrumental in spearheading the formation of the Asean Federation of Electric Vehicle Associations (Afeva). This recognition from GEAN underscores EVAP’s commitment to promoting sustainable transportation solutions and fostering innovation in the automotive industry.

“We are extremely proud to receive the GEAN Award, which serves as a testament to the dedication and hard work of the entire EVAP team,” stated Juan. “This prestigious accolade will only further catalyze our resolve to advocate for the widespread adoption of EVs in Asean, thereby contributing to a greener and more sustainable future.”

He also expressed gratitude to GEAN secretary general Bell Park for his invaluable support to EVAP in its endeavors. The collaborative efforts between EVAP and GEAN have been instrumental in driving positive change and accelerating the transition towards cleaner and more environmentally friendly transportation options.

The GEAN Award recognizes EVAP’s leadership, innovation, and commitment to promoting EVs as a viable and sustainable mode of transportation in Asean. EVAP remains steadfast in its mission to drive positive change and shape the future of mobility through its advocacy and initiatives.
