Roadmap to India’s 2030 decarbonization target

2022

Author(s): Shankar A, Saxena, A K, Idnani T

The share of renewables in total electricity generation is now over 10%, more than 70% of the country’s electricity was still generated by fossil fuels in 2021.At COP26, India announced the highly ambitious goal of decarbonizing energy to 50% and achieving 500 GW of fossil fuel free generating capacity by 2030. This was a very large increase above its Paris commitments, far more than expected. This study discusses the challenges and feasibility in achieving the ambitious 2030 targets.

Improving Bankability of E-bus Procurement in India

2022

Author(s): World Bank

This report outlines some immediate opportunities for adjustments to reduce cost of contracting under GCC by around 10 to 15 percent. Those include: (i) removal of subsidy bank guarantee; (ii) adequate time for bid preparation; (iii) enhanced termination and Force Majeure clauses; (iv) adequate payment securities; (v) measures to enhance creditworthiness of the contracting authorities; and (vi) capping of penalties.

This report evaluates each vehicle and market segment considering their unique characteristics. Analytical models based on key cost drivers for each segment were used to project market penetration in a range of scenarios (from business-as-usual or “BAU” to comprehensive implementation of recommendations). A deep dive analysis was undertaken for three states (Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, and Madhya Pradesh) across ten of their largest cities, then aggregated at the state and national levels for a comprehensive picture.

Haryana electric vehicle policy-2022

2022

Publisher/Organisation: Government of Haryana

The main objectives of the policy are to promote clean transportation by promotion of use of Electric Vehicles (EVs) in the State. Set up widespread and accessible charging infrastructure to make usage of Electric Vehicles affordable and easy. Facilitate manufacturing of Electric Vehicles, its major components and batteries in the state thereby generate employment opportunities in the State. Promote Research and Development (R&D) on various aspects of electric mobility.

Development of the State of Warranty (SOW) for Electric Vehicles

2022

Author(s): Arrinda M, Sánchez D, Oyarbide M, Macicior H, Zubiria A

An exponential increase in electric vehicles on the road needs a follow-up in terms of the warranty. The proposed state of warranty (SOW) is a meta state that qualitatively describes the warranty fulfillment level of an electric vehicle.
