Entrepreneurship Acceleration Program

Energy storage has emerged as a key technology for the transformation of electricity systems and the reduction of carbon emissions around the world. Global energy storage production is expected to increase 20-fold by 2040.

India is moving in the direction of electrifying mobility and aims to achieve 30% EV sales penetration in private cars, 70% in commercial vehicles, and 80% in electric two-wheelers and three-wheelers by 2030. E-mobility services, charging infrastructure, battery recycling, battery swapping, EV equipment manufacturing, and ride-sharing, among others, are some of the business opportunities that have emerged in the EV sector. Additionally, the government is also supporting this sector by easing regulations, reducing battery costs, and encouraging the installation of charging infrastructure for the mass adoption of EVs. A booming electric vehicle market for India preludes economic growth for this sector including the startups working towards it. While India has gained stature as one of the fastest-growing markets for advanced energy storage technology, it is going to need more energy storage than any other country for its ambitious renewable push, to ensure stable, reliable and quality power for all consumers. Given this transition, startups will play a key role in the energy storage and EV sector in India.

To support the steadfast growth in the energy storage and EV space in India, IESA academy has designed the Entrepreneurship Acceleration Program acronym (EAP) which will guide all students, aspiring entrepreneurs, and early-stage startups with all the required knowledge and training for setting up a startup in the EV and ES sector.
