Greening India’s automotive sector: EV policies, categories and subnational trends
Author(s): Nair M, Minocha A
India's electric vehicle market now make up 6% as of September 2022, with more EVs sold in the first half of FY 2022-23 than in the entire previous year. This growth can be attributed to policies, categories, and subnational factors as the key drivers.
GridShield—Optimizing the Use of Grid Capacity during Increased EV Adoption
Author(s): van Sambeek HL, Zweistra M, Hoogsteen G, Varenhorst IAM, Janssen S.
This paper describes the technical development and demonstrates how GridShield can keep a transformer load below a critical limit using simulations and real-world tests. It optimizes grid capacity while ensuring grid reliability.
Multi-criteria Approach for Identification and Ranking of Key Interventions for Seamless Adoption of Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure
Author(s): Nath A, Rather Z, Mitra I, Sahana L.,
This paper presents a combined ranking of the key interventions. Critical analysis of all the identified interventions has been undertaken, and the learnings have been utilized to frame a multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) process to identify the priority of roll-out of the interventions.
Charging after Lockdown: The Aftermath of COVID-19 Policies on Electric Vehicle Charging Behaviour in The Netherlands
Author(s): van der Koogh M, Wolbertus R, Heller R
