Urban mobility and electric vehicle transition in India

23 Oct 2019   |   0930 - 1300 hrs (IST)

Organised by CEEW and Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation

About the Event

Various facets of the mobility landscape in India are undergoing change. India has to simultaneously juggle the need to meet basic accessibility needs for large swathes of the population while accommodating new paradigms such as electric and shared mobility that are gaining traction globally. Urban transport planning and governance are points of intervention to address these needs.

At the same time, the auto-industry in India is facing a push for electric vehicle manufacturing. The optimal pace of such a transition and the enabling policy and market environment needed for it are yet to be detailed.

The dialogue will bring together policymakers, industry representatives, and researchers to discuss urban mobility and auto industry transitions in tandem. CEEW’s upcoming studies on ‘Perceptions on Clean Transport and Sustainable Mobility in Urban India’ and ‘Electric Vehicle Transition in India: Opportunities, Challenges and the EV Ecosystem’ will help add context to the deliberations.
