SOLUTIONSplus Asia: Advancing Electric Mobility in Thailand with Key Workshops and Initiatives

We are excited to share an insights on SOLUTIONSplus Asia replication activities, held in Bangkok, Thailand on 20th May 2024.

The National Energy Technology Center (ENTEC) under NSTDA, led by Dr. Lily Eurwilaichitr - Assistant Director, Dr. Nuwong Chollacoop - Director of the Low Carbon Energy Research group, Dr. Pimpa Limthongkul - Director of the Energy Innovation Research Group and the research team, together with representatives from SOLUTIONSplus Project Ms. June Yeonju J. - Head of Sustainable Transport in Asia Pacific, UNEP, and Dr. Shritu Shrestha, Senior Researcher at Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy / Urban Living Lab Center and relevant agencies, organized a workshop on “Mainstreaming Electric Mobility 2- and 3- Wheelers in Thailand, also served as the “Finalisation Workshop for IKI-funded UNEP and EC-funded SOLUTIONSplus Projects in Thailand”.

The event disseminated the outcome of the SOLUTIONSplus replication projects in Bangkok (Battery swapping for e-motorcycle taxis) and Udon Thani (e 3-Wheeler services), including the important progress and achievements in promoting electric 2 and 3-wheelers in Thailand.

The success factors and experiences from the works involved in supporting electric 2 and 3-wheelers were also highlighted by various development partners. The in-depth practical information and plans for accelerating the adoption of electric 2- and 3 -wheelers were delivered, covering the Bangkok metropolitan, major regional cities, and secondary minor economic cities. The event also included the discussion on the Light Electric Vehicles Guidelines for ASEAN, e 2- and 3- wheeler conversion potential, the development of National battery swapping standard for e2W, guidelines for carrying out Monitoring Reporting and Verification (MRV) based on the Thailand Voluntary Emission Reduction Program (T-VER) - an important tool in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

These initiatives align with Thailand’s national goals for sustainable transport and environment conservation.
