Topic: India’s road to E-Mobility: Obstacles and Opportunities
With the FAME 1 and FAME 2 initiatives, the Government of India has made it a mission to facilitate electrification of vehicles on Indian roads. Various state governments have contributed ambitious plans to this mission. With the COP26 in Glasgow, it is imperative to understand the challenge and the prospects of Electric Mobility in India. Some experts have opined that the current push for the faster adoption of electric mobility would not result in the desired results in the long run. Instead, they want to see pilots and responses from the ground to propose a better public policy framework to deal with the potential challenges that may arise as the present policies are promoted extensively. There are also debates around the electricity pool, capacity, and efficiency of the providers of the electricity, tariffs, etc. It cannot be treated just as a plugin and play approach, the way it is being urged to implement.
