Influencing Policies at the Governance level:

Dr. Kaustubh recently had the good fortune of explaining his concept of ‘A collaborative business model for reducing the REAL carbon footprint of electric vehicles’ to the honorable Minister for Road Transport and Highways and Shipping, Mr. Nitin Gadkari. Kaustubh had presented this concept at the Smart Cities Expo World Congress at Barcelona last year (to watch the video click here). Mr. Gadkari was impressed by the bold concept. He raised many relevant questions and said that the government would be interested in the details. Dr. Kaustubh has passed on the paper to him and is expecting the best!

The abstract of the concept is as follows:
For Electric Vehicles (EVs) to become a green and clean option, they must draw electricity from renewable sources such as biomass, solar, wind, hydel power, geothermal and tidal.
The EV manufacturer should have a holding company that invests in various satellite companies that generate clean energy from various renewable sources. The energy thus generated should be uploaded on a SMART GRID and the holding company should be granted equivalent energy credits. The EV manufacturer could use these credits to recharge the batteries of EVs sold by them at authorized recharging stations. The excess credits left after recharging the EVs could be traded with other EV manufacturers or other carbon footprint-heavy industries. Thus, a thriving secondary market for 'Green Energy Credits' could be created. Governments should offer tax benefits for income generated from trading of energy credits. This needs smart collaborations between various agencies and the government.
Read Dr. Kaustubh's thoughts on ‘How to get the unbanked into the banking ambit and yet enable the banks to make profits?'
At Deloitte: Potentials and Possibilities conducted an orientation module on ‘Design Thinking & Creative Training Pedagogies’ for the Learning & Development team at Deloitte-USA, India. Most of the participants rediscovered their mojo for training, which they seemed to have lost over the years. The feedback was highly encouraging and the participants were raring to get back to their training modules.
At Daimler India Commercial Vehicles –  We ran an interesting format for Daimler at Chennai Plant on discovering ‘New Products & Services for Daimler in 2025’.

It was an amazing experience for our team and equally for the participants' crystal ball gazing about how the automobile industry would morph over the next eight years.
