The reports are shared and available free of charge in our database.

Deloitte Survey on EV Adoption: Will the Transition to EVs Happen Quickly Enough?

Although there is a transition to EVs, certain markets are not seeing it happen quickly enough. Consumer interest in EVs is rising as people hunt for ways to cut their operational expenses in the face of hyperinflationary conditions. However, maintaining forward momentum is different for different markets. The biggest obstacles to adoption continue to be cost, uncertainty over range, and battery safety issues.

Deloitte surveyed 26,000 customers in 24 countries between September and October 2022 to investigate EV adoption, brand impression, and linked technology. The purpose of this yearly research is to provide answers to critical issues that will assist organisations in prioritising and positioning their business plans and investments.

Electric Buses in Jakarta: A Guide to Successful Adoption

Electric buses are a direct solution to lower city GHG emissions and enhance air quality. By 2025, Jakarta, Indonesia, will solely buy zero-emission buses, and by 2030, its TransJakarta fleet will be all electric. It has established targets for the deployment of charging infrastructure as well as a target of 10,047 electric buses in service by 2030. The government pledges to increase public transportation and deploy electric buses in order to cut greenhouse gas emissions by up to 50% by 2030.

This report offers recommendations based on successful foreign experiences to assist the adoption of e-buses in Jakarta’s public transportation and other Indonesian cities. Important takeaways can help other cities make the switch from pilot programmes to fully formed fleets. written with Jakarta as the primary focus.

Achieving the EU’s “Fit for 55” Target Through Electrification and Renewable Fuels

Minimizing pollutant emissions and lowering greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions have been two key European goals for the advancement of road transport technology during the past fifteen years. More than ever, development efforts are shifting toward lowering GHG emissions as a result of recent successes in reducing pollutant emissions, the introduction of “real driving emissions” (RDE), and anticipated new CO2 objectives brought on by the European Green Deal.

This report provides an overview of research gaps in sustainable energy and powertrains for transportation. It maps out prospective solutions to environmental and energy concerns, explains “Fit for 55” EC policy, and emphasizes the need to reduce GHG emissions in road transportation. The conclusion is that simultaneous electrification and renewable fuels development is ideal to reduce GHG emissions and must be monitored throughout their life-cycle.
