The Government of India’s target of 100% Electric Vehicles (EVs) by 2030 is a potential game changer for the Indian economy. Facilitating this revolution at the confluence of information technology, power regulation and E-Mobility is the Internet of Things which could transform how we travel by offering clean energy driven, multimodal transport options across e-vehicles such as two wheelers, cars, buses, trams and rickshaws, metro and long distance trains.
Further, as a strategic move, it could lessen India’s dependence on fossil fuel imports (e.g. 183.5% of crude oil is imported and therefore exposes the economy to oil price volatility and loss of foreign exchange) and help meet India’s climate change commitments.
If India is able to take the lead in development and implementation of these innovative technologies, we will have to work to overcome these challenges and harmonise competing or conflicting interests of different stakeholders to achieve the goal of 100% EVs by 2030.
Global leadership in implementation of E-mobility and Shared Mobility in India can lead to multiple benefits such as an increase in employment generation, improving productivity in the infrastructure sector and create a base for export of systems and services to other countries.
IPPAI proposes to examine what enabling regulatory and policy frameworks may be required across sectors to enable the expeditious roll out of E-Mobility and Shared Mobility in the country as envisaged by the Government at a conference to be organised in New Delhi with the kind support, guidance and participation of the Central Electricity Authority.
