Publication Year: 2021

Author(s): Rather Z, Banerjee R, Nath A, Dahiwale P


This study focuses on EV charging infrastructure, related policy and regulatory measures, grid integration of EVs, and the way forward for smooth EV adaption in the Indian EV ecosystem. The study developed a framework along with the inputs from a detailed critical international review on EV charging infrastructure development and its grid integration from different EV rich countries. The developed framework has been used as a basis for identifying gaps and scope for improvement in EV charging infrastructure adoption at the national level and in the States. 

This specific report is the first in the series of four reports documenting the fundamentals of EV charging technology, standards, communication protocols, and grid integration of EVs with the distribution system. The functional role of EV charging in the EV ecosystem is discussed in detail.
