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 3-day Training programme on Accelerating the electric mobility transition in India: Understanding the key strategies for quick and sustained transformation on February 21-23, 2024. This programme represents our initiative to promote good regulatory practices on clean air action planning through knowledge sharing and capacity building.

The objective of this 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 training programme has been designed for the state implementing agencies and departments to deepen the understanding.

Training session modules 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
