Scaling Up E-Mobility as a Platform for Sustainable Urban Transportation
Electrification of transport modes is already a global trend. In this scene-setting presentation, ADB's Ki-Joon Kim makes a case for electric vehicles (EVs) as an immediate solution for reducing GHG and urban pollution. He also outlines the deciding factors for electric vehicle viability, as well as recommended policy actions for consideration by governments. He concludes by highlighting that while EV studies and financing by international institutions are growing fast but needs more cross-sectoral efforts to accelerate EV deployment.
