Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure and its Grid Integration in India: Status Quo, Critical Analysis and Way Forward

Report 3

The study “Integration of Electric Vehicles charging infrastructure with distribution grid: Global review, India’s gap analyses and way forward” focuses on EV charging infrastructure, related policy and regulatory measures, grid integration of EVs, and the way forward for smooth EV adaption in the Indian EV ecosystem. This study is carried out by 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.

This specific report is the third report in the series of four reports of this study. This 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. E-buses and heavy-duty trucks that currently have very low penetration in Indian EV market, are not the focus of this report.
