India has ambitious plans to become a 100% electric vehicle (EV) nation by 2030, and the government is offering plenty of incentives to accelerate EV uptake.
But the key to decarbonising India’s transport sector will be deploying solar energy-powered EV charging stations across the country.
Solar generation and EVs are a great match for each other
IEEFA’s new podcast explores the potential of combining rooftop solar and EVs.
Vibhuti Garg, Energy Economist and Lead India at IEEFA, talks with distributed energy expert and IEEFA guest contributor Gabrielle Kuiper about why solar generation and EVs (which are essentially ‘batteries on wheels’) are such a great match for each other.
And we also hear from Prateek Saxena, Founder and CEO of Hygge Energy, about his successful proof of concept project to test solar-powered EV charging systems at Indian Oil fuel stations.
