PPP models for faster market uptake of EVs

05. November 2014

Why should transportation companies join Public Private Partnerships (PPP)? This question, addressed in a report issued by Danish partner FDT, refers to fostering the implementation of Freight Electric Vehicles (FEVs) in the Copenhagen Municipality. In their report, the authoring team illustrates a PPP model which can support the private sector in receiving information about EVs, purchase prices and changes in laws, thus making FEVs more attractive and easier to use in business. Not only are the transportation companies considered as private sector, other actors involving in the EVs industry (i.e EV manufacturers, charging infrastructure providers etc.) are also important partners within the private sector who play important roles in the PPP programme to create a faster market uptake for FEVs.

This study has looked into the possibility of setting up cooperation between the public and private sector in order to encourage the purchase of freight electric vehicles by urban transportation companies. The focused market is Copenhagen, Denmark, where the Copenhagen Climate Plan 2025 is currently being implemented.
