E-launch of GIZ's Report-3 on EV Charging Infrastructure and its Grid Integration

GIZ and IIT Bombay in cooperation with NITI Aayog, released the third report from the study “Integration of Electric Vehicles Charging Infrastructure with Distribution Grid: Global Review, India’s Gap Analyses and Way Forward”. This study is carried out by a consortium led by IIT Bombay along with Florence School of Regulation (FSR), Technical University Denmark (DTU), Cardiff University and Universidad Pontificia Comillas. The study  has been carried out under the purview of GIZ’s Nationally Determined Contribution - Transport Initiative for Asia (NDC-TIA) project, in close collaboration and under the guidance of NITI Aayog.

In this event, Mr. Tobias Winter, Head - Indo German Energy Forum - Support Office, GIZ India, delivered the opening remarks. The report was released by Mr. M. Vijay Kumar, Joint Adviser, Infrastructure Connectivity, NITI Aayog, Government of India. Mr. A. K. Rajput, Chief Engineer (R&D), CEA, delivered the guest address and Prof. Zakir Rather, Department of Energy Science and Engineering, IIT Bombay, presented the key insights from the report. This specific report is the third report in the series of four reports of this study. The report is focused on detailed documentation and analysis of EV charging infrastructure and its grid integration in Indian EV ecosystem covering the current status analysis of various aspects including EV charging technology, standards and protocols applicable in India, grid integration status of EVs, stakeholders in Indian EV ecosystem, policy and regulatory matters related to EV charging infrastructure (both at central and state level). Moreover, gap analysis in EV charging infrastructure and its grid integration in Indian EV ecosystem is also presented in this report. Since the Indian EV market currently constitutes of mainly electric 2W, 3W and 4W (e-cars), the main focus of this report is on these passenger vehicle segments.
