Although there have been many efforts to promote electrification of transport in India, there are still major anxieties that act as a "speed-breaker” to adoption of this new technology. The most prominent anxiety is related to the high capital costs of electric vehicles, as a result of which many people are still quite reluctant to even think about investing in them. This is not only from the point of view of the consumer, but also that of manufacturers, OEMs, start ups and entrepreneurs. It is time that we look at E-mobility from a larger perspective and have a holistic approach towards the same.
In this webinar, Mr Vibhuj Binani from D'accord Incorporated will throw light on key elements of this topic:
- How should we look at transitioning from vehicle-centric finance to an ecosystem finance?
- How can E-mobility lower credit risk?
- Micro-Project finance and its use in financing electric mobility projects (moving away from archaic asset credit to a cashflow based model)
- The role of the Millennial in dictating new vehicle finance schemes
- Use of E-mobility to finance rapid urbanization
This 1-hour session will include a presentation followed by Q&A. The webinar will be of interest to various groups, including policy-makers, OEMs, EV component manufacturers and operators of all modes, and electricity service providers.
