Emobility

Transport accounts for 23% of global CO2 emissions. It is imperative that we adopt cleaner forms of transport. With this project WBCSD aims to enable an ecosystem that accelerates deployment of electric vehicles by demonstrating economically viable and scalable business cases.​

The challenge

By 2030 there will be a 41% increase in motorised mobility. Carbon dioxide emissions are set to increase 60% by 2050 and 80% of cities are struggling to maintain air quality standards. Companies are facing stricter regulations regarding their emissions and cities are limiting access to vehicles during peak times as well as are introducing low emission zones.

The business case

Adopting Emobility solutions provide emission reduction and revenue opportunities to commercial customers. Many solutions relating to Emobility require a collaborative approach. We will establish partnerships to test, validate, and scale electrification. Companies will gain greater visibility across the electric vehicle (EV) value chain and understand how to maximise the benefits offered by electric mobility.​

The solution

We are developing an engagement platform and together identifying key corporate EV use cases. For these cases we are developing a “how-to-guide” which will support companies in their journey of adopting electric vehicles. We will use pilot projects to demonstrate the replicability and scalability of the identified EV use cases.

The Emobility ecosystem in India is working together to accelerate adoption

REmobility (the India deep-dive for Emobility) has been operational since January 2018. Over 100 decision makers from 31 companies are working together with an objective to accelerate electric vehicles adoption in India. ​

The group represents corporate customers and mobility service providers that travel at least 3.5 billion kilometers per year, vehicle manufacturers with a market share of 17% for passenger vehicles and 75% for commercial vehicles and charging infrastructure providers with a market share of over 60% in India.​

Highlights

Masterclass on corporate EV adoption in India

WBCSD collaborated with NITI Aayog, Government of India, to organize a workshop at the India's first Global Mobility Summit. The workshop was aimed at informing corporate customers about EV use cases and helping them evaluate adoption.

Designing EV finance products in India

WBCSD organized a workshop with India's largest bank, State Bank of India. At this workshop, India's EV value chain provided inputs to the senior management of the bank on creation of EV specific finance products for India.​

EV adoption roadmap for store to home delivery

WBCSD organized a workshop where India's EV value chain supported Ikea's effort to deploy electric vehicles for home delivery of goods for its customers. This is for the first such project in India.​
