Workshop-cum-training programme: Accelerating the electric mobility transition in India: Understanding the key strategies for quick and sustained transformation

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) is inviting participation in its four-day Workshop-cum-training programme on Accelerating the electric mobility transition in India: Understanding the key strategies for quick and sustained transformation on June 19-22, 2023.

The objective of this workshop-cum-training programme is to sensitise officials and regulators from the implementing agencies in states with regards to the essential scope and design of the key strategies that are needed at the central and at the state level to achieve scale and speed of implementation. Already, the Government of India has implemented the demand incentive programme called FAME to build a market for the electric vehicles and also the production linked incentives to initiate local manufacturing of advanced chemistry batteries in India. Simultaneously, the state governments have notified their respective state level electric vehicle policies to stimulate state level market and manufacturing. This has created enormous opportunities to help India meet the clean air targets as well as transport decarbonisation goals. Already clean air action plans and climate action plans in states have provided for rapid electrification for zero emissions transition and meet the clean air goals. 

This has also created enormous demand in cities to understand the regulations, standards, design of demand incentive, setting of targets and mandate for electrification in different vehicle segments, operations of electric buses, strategies for charging infrastructure, leveraging low emissions zones for rapid electrification, battery recycling and the related issues. Even though this is a nascent development several good practices are also emerging in different cities that need to be understood.

In view of this, a detailed workshop and a training programme has been designed for the state implementing agencies to deepen the understanding.

The entire programme has been divided into two parts. Part 1 is a workshop that will bring a diverse set of well known experts and practitioners to interact with the officials and regulators to provide an insight from the real world and the emerging issues. Part 2 will be a more detailed hands on training on the critical aspects of the key strategies. This will also include field visits in Delhi.

The first part will be organised at Maple Room, India Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road, New Delhi for initial two days and the remaining days will be organised at Anil Agarwal Environment Training Institute (AAETI), Nimli, Tijara, Alwar district, Rajasthan. This programme represents our initiative to promote good regulatory practices on clean air action planning through knowledge sharing and capacity building.

Workshop-cum-training session modules will enable interaction with experts and will focus on the following:

  • Role of setting zero emissions mandate and target at the central and state level to make national and state level policies more effective
  • Understanding the strategies for electrification of two-and three wheelers and cars. Why is a more ambitious target possible in two/three wheelers segments? What is needed for the car segment?
  • Understanding electric bus operations and the role of low emissions zones in cities in accelerating electrification
  • What are the special challenges of electrification of the heavy-duty truck sector?
  • What is needed to build charging infrastructure?
  • Understanding battery recycling and reuse and building requisite infrastructure in cities
