COP28: Rajal Upadhyaya

"The biggest motivation for emerging markets, given that the actual operations are more private sector led, is support from the government in creating the right sort of environment."

Rajal Upadhyaya, Head of Finance at Nairobi-based e-mobility start-up Roam, is witnessing the continued success of switching from fossil fuel to electric vehicles, and has enjoyed the opportunity to meet similar companies from larger markets like India, to share insights and experiences and discover potential collaborations

Roam's electric vehicle model is highly scalable, as long as governments create an environment that supports innovation so that companies like theirs, which are key to driving transformative change, can be seen as an attractive investment. With that support in place, companies like Roam have the potential for rapid scale-up.
