Climate change is a global problem, and every nation will need a route to reducing emissions from transport.
It is important to collaborate, sharing knowledge and expertise, across borders to find equitable solutions that are right for the local communities and the environment.
Here a four such collaborations with Cenex in Asia:
Global&Local BrainPark Inc commissioned Cenex to carry out a study of the activities of UK hydrogen and fuel cell (HFC) companies in the context of the recently-published UK Government Hydrogen Strategy.
The aim of the study was to provide strategic information to the partnership of organisations engaged in developing the Chungnam Hydrogen Economy Action Plan in South Korea.
Cenex conducted extensive desk-based research and interviews with UK-based organisations and delivered the analysis in a report and an informative a workshop.
Cenex were commissioned by UK Government’s Partnering for Accelerated Climate Transitions (UK PACT) programme to provide technical advice via online workshops to the Thai Government’s Energy Policy and Planning Office on the role of electric vehicles and biofuels in the transition to Net Zero.
The key challenge was to enable the Thai Government’s policy makers, from different ministries, to develop policy assessment and decision making tools based on UK experience.
Following the workshops, the Thai Government has revised its policy on biofuels and is now focusing on the electrification of 2, 3 4 wheeled light duty vehicles and the use of biofuels in long distance and heavy duty vehicles.
Cenex is supporting Daerah Khusus Ibukota Jakarta Raya (DKI Jakarta) as they expand their EV ambitions and encourage further uptake of EVs including private use vehicles.
To this end, Cenex is developing a practical toolkit which can be used to project future EV needs and calculate the corresponding carbon and emission reduction potential as well as EV infrastructure requirements.
The toolkit will be translated into Indonesian and training provided to the DKI Jakarta officials.
As part of the zero emission vehicles (ZEV) transition, the UK Government is working with stakeholders across India to support activities that can make the transition faster, more affordable, and available to all.
The UK-India Electric Mobility Accelerator Awareness Campaign is part of this programme, funded by the Foreign Commonwealth Office. The main stakeholder of this Cenex project is NITI Aayog, Government of India and it has been delivered by PricewaterhouseCoopers, India, and Cenex, UK.
This work delivered three outcomes: the e-Amrit EV Web Portal, an e-Mobility Knowledge Exchange Partnership, and a UK Innovation Centres Report.
