The study “Integration of Electric Vehicles charging infrastructure with distribution grid: Global review, India’s gap analyses and way forward” focused on EV charging infrastructure, related policy and regulatory measures, grid integration of EVs, and way forward for smooth EV adaption in Indian EV ecosystem. The study developed a framework along with the inputs from a detailed critical international review on EV charging infrastructure development and its grid integration from different EV rich countries. The developed framework has been used as a basis for identifying gaps and scope for improvement in EV charging infrastructure adoption at the national level and in the states. The study, based on a combination of desk research, surveys, bilateral consultations with stakeholders, and multi-stakeholder workshops, has been used to identify and recommend national and state specific interventions that can be sandboxed for the use by regulators, policy makers, DISCOMS, and other stakeholders, and later adopted across the country.
The outcome of this study is documented in a series of four technical reports and this Executive Summary is abridged from the key findings of each report. The four reports listed below cover different aspects of EV integration in a structured manner for effective, organised, and easy dissemination of the study outcome.
