Location is Everything: Approaches to Siting Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure for the Indian Context
Publication Year: 2020
Author(s): Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC)
In India, increasing the fleet of electric vehicles (EV) and charging infrastructure will be key to improving air quality in cities, enhancing energy security (by reduced dependence on imported crude), and fighting climate change. The national government is also moving toward a massive scale-up of renewable energy and sustainable mobility (e-mobility). Several states and cities along with private companies are moving forward with electric mobility plans in India. As per an analysis by Niti Aayog and Rocky Mountain Institute, 30% EV penetration by 2030 will generate an estimated saving of up to 474 million tons of oil equivalent (Mtoe) and 846 million tons of net CO2 emissions over their lifetime.
This issue brief provides decision-makers and stakeholders with information on the principles of charging infrastructure location and siting. It also presents successful EV adoption approaches that have been used by cities in other parts of the world. In addition, based on international practices, this issue brief presents approaches to siting EV charging infrastructure.
