Future of Clean Mobility in Southeast Asia

Regional Industry Leaders Shared Insights on The Future of Clean Mobility in Southeast Asia at the recent Future Mobility Asia Event.

Asia is moving swiftly into clean mobility (only in terms of emissions right now) and the agenda seems to be only with the automotive sector. Electric vehicles!

What about the use of solar power with factories, farms and homes? What about the reduction of coal power stations? What about the checks on open burning in the rural areas? What about the mining of minerals for the production of electric vehicle batteries?

All just short term thinking where there are huge profits to be made by a small group of people and industry and not the long term issues that will come with mineral mining for electric vehicles and the ‘dumping’ of used petrol and diesel powered vehicles in third world nations.

Clean Mobility

PRESS RELEASE: As the first of its kind in Asia dedicated to clean mobility, industry experts across Southeast Asia converged at the Event Preview to share in-depth insights on the promise of clean mobility, address business challenges in the mobility sector, and to define and refine the FMA 2022 conference program. The Event Preview was preceded with a hybrid media briefing with local Thai media and virtual attendance from international media.

“The switch to clean mobility could potentially extend the region beyond its environmental benefits. The clean mobility revolution is creating an opportunity for Southeast Asia to leapfrog its position in the automotive value chain and subsequently drive economic competitiveness and job creation.

In the post-pandemic juncture, a strong economic impetus is needed and encouragingly, Southeast Asia has risen to the occasion,” said Mel Lanvers-Shah, Vice President Asia, dmg events.

Despite a growth in car sharing and semi-automated car driving, the global car fleet may expand by 60 percent.

Clean Mobility

“At SEA Electric, we understand that electric mobility is not a cheap investment hence, we have to work closely with policy makers. Countries across Southeast Asia are rolling out incentives to support businesses in enhancing the future of clean mobility.

While we face endless barriers and obstacles from end-users, the government will be of great help to address these concerns. Our participation at Future Mobility Asia happening in July is opening up opportunities for us to share experiences with global industry leaders,” said Trung Nguyen, General Manager – South East Asia, SEA Electric.

“A thorough understanding of each city is important because the local environment differs by countries and cities. We have to understand the three main topics; environment, economy and the balance between incentives and infrastructure.

Taking Singapore as an example, the nation knows that 15 percent of its land is used for car transportation, hence rolled out a car-lite program with a goal of moving towards a sustainable environment.
