Essential Need for Electric Vehicles and Infrastructure Advancement: Challenges in India


  • SRM University, Chennai -600048, Tamil Nadu, India


This paper analyses the essential need for EVs in Indian transport, need for advanced charging infrastructure and technoeconomic comparative analysis of EVs and ICE engine vehicle. India is depending on oil imports largely for the energy needs. The share of oil imported by India was 57% at 1957, and it’ll be 97% for 2020. The escalating price of oil poses a severe problem in Indian energy segment in future. An emission from the transport sector is the key source of air pollution next to power sector in India. 13/ 20 cities in the world with highest air pollution are positioned in India. Transport and power sector have a significant effect in worsening air quality. As for these reasons the exploration of a different kind of transportation is required. Electric Vehicles (EV) are proving to be an absolutely new way to store and consume mass amounts of energy from the power grid. Battery Electric Vehicles (EV) and Plug-in Hybrid-Electric Vehicle (PHEV) offers beneficial rewards compared to the conventional ICE vehicle. Power generation from renewable sources, transmission, distribution, and allocation of energy and energy mix are developed with improved efficiency and consistency. A prearranged analysis is done for the business-related scopes of electric vehicles Indian energy sector. Data aggregator provides supplementary grid services as well as controls the electric vehicles charging.
