CKIC-DRIIVGreen Mobility

Context and Objectives

As per the Paris agreement (2016), we are bound to reduce emissions. The Nation’s effort to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and increase the adoption of Electric Vehicles (EVs) is a major initiative towards this goal. However, for large scale adoption of EVs, the prime bottleneck is the availability of charging infrastructure. A prime thematic problem that needs to be solved is to have a smart, sustainable and secure EV infrastructure.

Sustainable E-Mobility Team

How it Works

The team is working on the following work packages:

Work Package 1

Feasibility study of smart, sustainable and secure EV infrastructure in the city: Optimization of Fast DC EV charger placement in the city to minimize cost and delay for users.

1
Clinical Efficacy Testing

Work Package 2

Electric Vehicle Charging Management – Battery Charging and Swapping: this will address the ‘range’ anxiety of EV users. E.g. Battery Swapping station adopted by Sun mobility; Uber and Ola’s announcement to bring in battery-swapping auto-rickshaws by 2022.

2
Free Online Testing

Work Package 3

Development and deployment of DC fast chargers across the city.

3
Open Branch Other Country

Work Package 4

Deploying renewable energy sources e.g. Solar power, in charging stations.
