To charter on the mission of upskilling a million people. This batch of DIYguru with Twenty Five Students & Professionals (Corporates, MSMEs & Researchers) has supported the E-Mobility ecosystem in Maharashtra and nearby regions enabling others to start Microentrepreneurship in different fields of Electric Vehicle Infrastructure ranging from setting up charging stations, Starting a Retrofitting Business to enabling an Electric Bus fleet on Opex model.
Smart mobility and electrification are reshaping the future of mobility and accelerating the transition to e-mobility. Electric vehicle (EV) sales keep increasing, now more than 1 million units globally, one of the fastest growing segment of the automotive market.1 While geographic discrepancies are high, the trend is accelerating further, and sales are likely to rise in coming years.
The roll out of EV charging infrastructures is critical for EVs to be adopted on a large scale. New infrastructure development, especially charging points, is essential to keep addressing customers’ range-anxiety and further bolster the uptake of EVs. Consequently, the deployment of charging infrastructure coupled to EV penetration are creating new market opportunities and attracting new players.
Assessing who can capture new value generated by this market is critical. Indeed, business models and development scenarios are constantly reshaped, making it uneasy to forecast financial returns and economic benefits for market players.
The development of e-mobility represents a billion-euro opportunity that companies should seize by preparing the future from today. The key is to adopt viable business models that enable them to differentiate themselves from competitors in an increasingly crowded market. As the Achilles heel of the electric vehicles (EVs) market lies in the charging infrastructure, this is a crucial avenue to explore in order to gain a competitive advantag. Enablers like DIYguru will help this ecosystem to offer skilled manpower which is the essence of the market.
