Centre for Science and Environment's Clean air and sustainable mobility team is organising half-day workshop on “Electrification of three-wheeler segment in India: Challenges and emerging good practices” on December 13, 2022, in Casuarina Hall, India Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road, New Delhi.
At the national and state level, policies are evolving rapidly to enable implementation of electric mobility in Indian cities with a very strong ambition to electrify the three-wheeler segment. NITI Aayog has targeted to achieve 80 per cent electrification in the three-wheeler segment by 2030. In most cities in India, three-wheeler autos play a very important role in urban commuting, particularly medium and small cities. Whereas, in big cities, it acts as an important medium to integrate multiple modes like buses and metros. As a result, several state governments have now begun to adopt their respective electric vehicle policy with a strong focus on three-wheeler auto electrification. However, even after several years of effort the segment has failed to make a substantial impact and electrification level is also quite low.
In this context, this workshop has been planned involving all the stakeholders including vehicle, charging and battery technology providers to service providers, city administrations; transport department officials, electric vehicle sector experts etc. to interact, explore and understand the core challenges and emerging solutions to resolve some of those so that adoption strategies are possible. This will address a wide gamut of issues related to implementation of e-auto programme, technical know-how of the upcoming technology and emerging business models etc.
