In the city of Rosario, a "meeting to analyze the process of change that the world faces towards sustainable mobility in urban areas"
In the city of Rosario, "meeting for to analyze the process of change that the world experiences in sustainable urban mobility", Which provided some definitions for regulation of provincial law 13.781, which not only tries to promote the use of electric vehicles, but also its industrial development in the province.
Governor Miguel Lifshitz, provincial officials, businessmen and specialists attended the event, such as the head of AAVEA Mariano Himena and the provincial deputy Joaquin Blanco, the author of the law.
In an interview with Strategic Energy, the legislator commented on some aspects of the Regulatory Regulation, what are the market and industry perspectives and how do you plan to make progress on the vehicle's loading infrastructure?
How does the Regulatory Regulation work?
Works inter-ministerial. It is a law with many legs where his spirit relates to an industrial strategy in Santa Fe, linked to sustained mobility, and in particular to electrical mobility.
The reference to articulation of the law is the Ministry of Industry, but it is obvious that the Provincial Energy Company (EPE) that the Energy Secretariat, together with the Secretariat for Renewable Energy, the Ministry of Transport and the Ministry of Production as a whole, must contribute to that appearance in the construction of the law.
Also, There is also a fiscal effort, because what we are proposing is a series of incentives, such as the exemption of the payment of patents for 10 years for these vehicles, or for non-payment of gross income for those who sell value-added electric wheels in Santa Fe. This concerns the decision on the budget where the Ministry of Economy is involved.
So, the regulation is being built with all those actors. In addition, there is a crucial axis that is the Provincial Electricity Mobility Impact Plan in Santa Fe, which is trying to materialize in public policy everything that is stated in the law.
As already announced by the Governor (Miguel Lifshitz), we are in the wake of the regulation coming out and there are already companies from Santa Fe looking for processing exceptions because they produce motorcycles, electric buses or electric tricycles, which already require the entourage of the state.
Is there a temporary date for publishing the Decree?
Yes, there is already a proposal and we calculate it before the end of the year will be in full force.
This forum is a presentation, and also a starting point for the law. Because we call on actors from the private sector, the various actors of the educational and academic community and entrepreneurs. There is a large number of highways for small and medium enterprises that are interested in what is coming, so we start, but with great strength.
How will the local industry integrate into the production of electric vehicles?
Everything that has to do with the drive and the battery is the imported technology. But there are many interesting developments regarding the design and production of the chassis, but also other components.
The law it foresees is that it has an escort to everything that is technological transfer and accompanies the industrial converting of auto-patriotism.
What we propose is to create an industrial ecosystem with the support of the state in order to guarantee that this is happening, always in order to reduce assembly and greater local development. That is why the Ministry of Industry is the law enforcement agency.
On the other hand, how is the infrastructure for charging electric vehicles?
The provincial energy company has just announced that the Rosario-Santa Fe motorway will be the country's first electric highway. We will have filling stations that cover the entire route between the two provincial cities. A public offer will be called to buy the loaders.
In addition, there is a EPE design plan for charging stations. In addition, we are convinced that this will be a very important business unit for the provincial energy company in the supply of vehicles.
But, of course, everything that includes charging stations will be a process.
And in relation to the different cities in the province?
Yes, we work with advisers from different locations, like Rosario, to comply with the provincial law. First about the benefits of urban transport, in order to get a differential energy tariff, and on the other hand, yes start looking at the new parking designs that there are full stations.
In short, we plan to have a complete infrastructure for the circulation of electric vehicles to become a reality.
Have you made an estimate of the cost of an electric vehicle purchased in Santa Fe from the tax and tax benefits provided by the law?
The calculation was made on the basis of the dollar's price that no longer exists because of the great devaluation that existed, it is necessary to think that they are practically imported vehicles.
Moreover, what is clear is that the change to the electric vehicle is rocking in the world. Different specialists claim that by 2025, the production of vehicles with technology based on lithium batteries will be cheaper than the internal combustion engine. And this comes at any time because we have six or seven years to be able to see it.
But this is logical, since since 2007, on average, the cost of an electric vehicle fell between 18 and 20% per year, which is thanks to the damping and improvement of the technology of lithium batteries, which is another 50% of the total price of the electric vehicle today.
