Many states across the US have taken a proactive approach to address climate change despite federal pushback against clean power. California recently joined the growing list of states and regions that are committing to carbon neutrality and becoming 100% green with the recent passing of SB100. Reaching these goals is an ambitious task on many fronts. Regardless, there is a growing positive sentiment and a sense of urgency to embrace electrification of transportation (EoT) coming from the consumer and electric grid sides.

Elevator market growth is mainly attributed to the increasing rate of urbanization, which leads to cities becoming denser with highrise buildings. Due to growing limitations of land space, high-rise residential and commercial buildings are high in demand and boost the adoption of elevators. Maintenance will grow along with the growing elevator installed base, and it is a recurring income stream for market participants. More often than not, elevator companies receive low margins from new equipment sales and balance it with the maintenance contracts offered to customers.
Questions this session will answer:
o How is the elevator market expanding in the fastest growing economies in Southeast Asia?
o Which are the leading elevator companies in Southeast Asia?
o What are the key success factors, and how are they different in each Southeast Asian elevator market?
o Where are the key opportunities and elevator customer segments in these countries?

North America is in a period of transition with new political directions. This includes the drive to constrict the EPA and reduce regulation in the midst of national worries over water quality, the adoption of new technologies and business models, an increased need for partnerships at the local level, and incorporating private partners and practices. Now more now than ever, water utilities must build a framework to adopt policies and directions to improve local efficiencies and management. Data-driven smart water technologies are poised to be at the center of this transition, helping North American water utilities manage current and impending challenges, and form the bridge between today's utility operations and successful navigation of the changing policy landscape.
