This IDC Energy Insights case study explores various drivers, challenges, and the future outlook of PEV pilots in Asia, specifically through an understanding of the Singapore EV test bed project. Led by members from Singapore's Energy Market Authority (EMA) and Land Transport Authority (LTA), with Bosch Software Innovations chosen as the charging service provider, the Singapore EV test bed program is more than just testing the technology viability. One of the key objectives, beyond the technology paradigm, is to attract and nurture high value, knowledge-based manufacturing and research activities in Singapore, as well as to position Singapore in the Asian EV map as a source of innovative business models that can be exported to other countries, thereby expanding the market for the local manufacturers and service providers.
"Singapore is well placed to test emerging technologies. Singapore's technology-savvy consumers, forward-looking government, diverse cross section of industries, and world-class infrastructure provide an excellent test bed for innovative electric vehicle business scenarios and models at a significantly reduced risk," says Cort Isernhagen, vice president, IDC.
