The Evolving Landscape of Urban Air Mobility in India

1.0 Introduction Today, over 4.46 billion people, or more than half the world’s population live in the cities. They are at the epicentre of economic activity, where more than 80% of global GDP is generated. As urban road transport density has grown, it has created several environmental challenges such as poor quality of air and water, improper waste disposal, and high energy usage. In Indian metropolitan cities (like Mumbai, Delhi, and Chennai), an average commute takes a whopping 90 -minutes and air pollution is one of the leading causes of

Public EV Charging Infrastructure in India

The availability of user-friendly public charging infrastructure is one of the key requirements for accelerating the adoption of electric vehicles in India.

Charging of Electric Vehicles

One of the critical success factors for electric vehicle deployment is establishment of a well-designed charging infrastructure. Over time there has been developments taking place in this area in terms of charging protocols, standards, and safety precautions.

Battery Ecosystem: A Global Overview, Gap Analysis in Indian context, and Way Forward for Ecosystem Development

The study is focused on documenting the status quo of battery technologies used in electric vehicles, Indian and global battery standards, and policy frameworks in India vis-à-vis global counterparts.In addition to the external environment, battery value chain elements viz. battery manufacturing, battery swapping, battery disposal, recycling, and reuse are also studied in detail to understand the technological and policy landscape in India. Owing to the nascent nature of the value chain, outputs from primary interactions have been integrated into the study to provide the picture of on ground realities.
