To mark a year’s anniversary of Delhi EV policy 2020, DDC Delhi, with RMI India’s support, hosted the second convening of the Delhi EV Forum on August 6, 2021.
More than 140 participants from auto, charging and fleet sectors of the EV ecosystem and ministers attended the virtual meeting. Many think tanks, civil society organizations, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), charging infrastructure providers, fleet-aggregators, first and last-mile service providers, among other mobility service providers, and government agencies participated in the forum.
Considering that the EV ecosystem is relatively new and still in the initial stages of development, consultations and stakeholder discussions have proved even very crucial in informing the early stages of the implementation of the Delhi EV Policy 2020.
After reviewing the suggestions of the participants, the government has devised clear actionable points to make the policy implementation more effective. Delhi government also announced that it will soon sign an MoU with Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) to set up public charging infrastructure on all DTC properties.
