Author(s): Rather Z, Nath A, Banerjee R (IIT Bombay)


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 fourth and final report of this study, which documents the final outcome of the study. The main focus of this report is on the recommendations for seamless adoption of EV charging infrastructure in India, which includes, technical, regulatory and policy measures for the key stakeholders of Indian EV ecosystem. The methodology adopted in arriving the final set of key recommendations is based on scientific approaches along with the inputs from the key stakeholders and backed by detailed techno-economic analysis of the proposed key interventions. One of the crucial aspects of the recommendations, particularly from the implementation point of view by the implementing agencies, is to adequately identify the order of the key interventions in which they need to be prioritised for effective achievement of the target goal. In this report, the recommended key interventions have been ranked based on multicriteria approach through a robust scientific method while considering realistic factors with the inputs from the field experience obtained through different modes.
