Bharat EV Charging & Battery Swapping Leadership Summit

India is leapfrogging electric mobility adoption with more than 1 million sales in the last year. With the combined efforts of various ministries including the Ministry of Power, Ministry of Road and Transport & Highways, and Ministry of Heavy Industries, the Indian EV infrastructure sector is also growing to support this adoption. India already has more than 10,000 public charging stations, and 100,000 swappable batteries in the ecosystem helping the industries to grow to the next phase. According to IESA’s analysis and Annual EV Market report, the EV charging sector has a potential of 37% annual growth and the battery swapping industry has a growth rate of 45% year-on-year basis. Many global charging infra and battery swapping companies entered the Indian market and Indian conglomerates diversified to the charging infrastructure business in past years. Many startups have entered the CPO business or charging station manufacturing and battery swapping operating business in the past 10 years. With the support from EESL, BEE, and various state governments, charging infra and battery swapping infrastructure has grown significantly. With the support of the Ministry of Commerce & Industry, Government of India, Industry bodies including IESA will be organizing one of the world’s largest Exhibition called Bharat Mobility Global Expo 1st – 3rd February 2024 in the Mobility space at a grand Exhibit Halls of Bharat Mandapam (Pragati Maidan), New Delhi. We invite all Charging Infra and Battery Swapping companies to be part of this global event.

With the Bharat Mobility 2024 exhibition, IESA is organizing leadership conferences that engage all industry players, government bodies, and international stakeholders to discuss, brainstorm, and strategize the growth of the electric mobility sector. We at IESA invite all relevant stakeholders to be part of this Bharat EV Charging & Battery Swapping Leadership Summit, 2nd February 2024, Bharat Mandapam, Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.
