A Guidance Document on Accelerating Electric Mobility in India
Electric mobility is grabbing attention globally. Leveraging this trend will bring multiple environmental and economic gains for India. Transitioning to electric mobility will require a carefully planned strategy that is comprehensive and cognisant of the local context. Keeping this in mind, WRI India partnered with the Center for Battery Engineering and Electric Vehicles (CBEEV) of IIT Madras to launch 'A Guidance Document on Accelerating Electric Mobility in India', with support from the Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation.
The document aims to inform state and local level officials who have embryonic knowledge about the basics of EVs and what it entails. It presents the pros and cons of different options of technologies in a neutral manner, and an eco-system wide transition strategy, with a roadmap for operationalising the actual deployment of electric vehicles in a city.
We hope you will benefit from reading this document and reach out to us with your inputs to take this work further.
