TERI suggests four-pronged approach for E-Mobility

Report by TERI

The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) has suggested a four-pronged approach to accelerate the introduction of electric vehicles in the country. 
 
“TERI’s analysis suggests that the first step should be to shift buses, taxis, and two-wheelers to EVs, as well as short motorised trips to non-motorised transport. This is towards an overall aim to encourage use of public transport and reduce uptake of motorised private vehicles. This will help reduce pollution in cities, decrease growth in petroleum imports, lower consumer fuel costs, and cut carbon emissions and road congestion”, said Mr Shri Prakash, Distinguished Fellow, TERI.
 
TERI has highlighted the following aspects that should be considered while formulating a policy roadmap for EVs:
 
Stakeholder involvement: A stakeholder consultation and participation process needs to be immediately initiated that takes into account the views of all those concerned - users, manufacturers, electricity and oil marketing companies. 
 
Infra preparedness: A public electric charging infrastructure, as well as a marketing infrastructure to provide an alternate business model for providing batteries, is essential for acceptance of a shift to EVs. TERI’s analyses indicates that for many categories of EVs - buses, taxis, two-wheelers - the cost of an EV version (without batteries) is less than that of ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) version, and the lifetime cost of batteries and recharging is less than the lifetime cost of petrol or diesel. This suggests the need for a new business model decoupling the EV cost and the battery cost, as well as of pubic charging facilities to allay range anxiety amongst users.
 
City-specific plans: Over a hundred cities in the country that are not attaining air quality standards are currently preparing and implementing strategies for air quality enhancement: city-specific mobility plans, with a role for EVs, have to be incorporated in these strategies. Given that every city has a unique pattern of mobility, there is a need to focus on comprehensive plans customised to the need for each city, with specific focus on mass transit system, supported by non-motorised transport, such as bicycles. 
 
Battery technology: A robust battery technology within acceptable price is yet to be evolved, and requires impetus from the Government to promote systematic research, development and application, with clear long term policy for technology adoption.
 
TERI has suggested that the four-pronged approach should be put into place immediately, within a national framework. This national framework will need to involve several ministries, including the Ministry of Surface Transport, the Ministry of Heavy Industry, and the Ministry of Environment, Forests & Climate Change, as well as the Niti Aayog.
