9:00 AM Enabling Public-Private Partnerships to Accelerate E-Mobility in Asia: How, When and Why

The ongoing business case for e-mobility in Asia, and more specifically Southeast Asia, has been a matter of huge debate- mainly on who would make the first move or shoulder the burden of such an initiative. Rather than remaining embroiled in a chicken-or-egg dilemma, the last few years have seen encouraging strides in public-private partnerships established to facilitate e-mobility projects for both public and private transportation within the region. Government regulators, infrastructure, utilities, vehicle OEMs and technology providers have started to collaborate effectively to enable the viability of such projects. Yet, questions and challenges remain, before electric mobility can be implemented and adopted on a wider scale. This focus day will examine the conditions and scenarios for successful PPP conceptualisation, implementation and maintenance, drawing on current projects within the countries in the region.

  • Analysing the potential benefits and opportunities that successful PPPs can offer for the overall growth of the EV and electric mobility market in Asia
  • Highlighting the existing conditions and infrastructure required before PPPs can be successful
  • Avoiding pitfalls in PPPs and measuring success
  • Reviewing the current roadmap for successful PPPs in Asia and future opportunities for stakeholders to collaborate across countriesReviewing the current roadmap for successful PPPs in Asia and future opportunities for stakeholders to collaborate across countries
