AI, Data & India’s Electric Vehicle Policy

By Akhil Aryan
The worldwide energy depletion crisis and the ongoing climate change calls for an immediate global transition to renewable energy alternatives such as the EV technology. The Indian government has recently announced its plan to build an EV charging station after every three km in its bid to realize its dream of ushering an all-electric transition by the year 2030. These are constructive steps undertaken by the government policymakers and the automobile sector in order to steer a nationwide shift to the EV technology.

Since no individual can bring about such a massive change on their own, it is up to the key stakeholders of the EV ecosystem such as the government, the automobile industry and EV mobility fleet owners to bring about such a massive paradigm shift from traditional modes of mobility to the unconventional.

The automobile sector can initiate this transitional process through the following ways:

Presently the latest technological developments such as Data sciences, AI and the internet of things (IoT) are delivering disruptive breakthroughs in the EV sector by building the foundation stone for an all-electric future. These futuristic technologies will aid in determining and improving the battery life and performance. This helps in bringing down the overall cost of usage and decreases the reliance on energy derived from coal gas and petroleum – non-renewable sources.

Startups too, can play an esteemed role in contributing towards the mass adoption of the EV technology by creating an enriched EV ecosystem in the following manner

As discussed previously, such an enormous shift in the way we see and interpret energy usage can only be brought forth through proactive measures on the part of the government; there are a few measures that the government must undertake to ensure nationwide permeation of the EV model. These are listed below:

Therefore it is up to the government and other key stakeholders to draft such EV friendly policies that will help realize India’s vision of becoming an all-electric EV hub by the year 2030 and in the same context, walk shoulder to shoulder with the rest of the progressive and developed world economies.
