Govt launches forum for successful implementation of EV policy

Saturday, 05 December 2020 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

The Delhi Government on Friday launched the ‘Delhi EV Forum’ as a platform for continuous engagement with stakeholders in the Electric Vehicle ecosystem for the successful implementation of the Delhi electronic vehicle policy.

The Dialogue and Development Commission will host the Delhi electric vehicle (EV) Forum with the support of RMI India on behalf of the Delhi Government.

The Delhi Government notified its landmark EV policy on 7th August, aimed at having an EV market share of 25 per cent across all new vehicle sales in Delhi by 2024.

The policy lays out a comprehensive strategy to enable rapid transition to EVs in the national capital centered on five key pillars – targeted financial incentives, non-financial incentives, enabling charging infrastructure, raising public awareness and building a green economy.

Speaking on the occasion, Jasmine Shah, Vice Chairperson of DDC said “Realizing the vision of chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s vision to make Delhi a EV capital of India requires participation of all stakeholders – OEMs, fleet operators, charging station energy operators, experts and various government agencies. Delhi EV Forum will provide the platform for much needed conversations among all the stakeholders.”

“Since the launch of Delhi’s EV policy, we have received enthusiastic response from several stakeholders – EV manufacturers, fleet operators keen to launch complete EV fleets in Delhi, charging station operators etc. Their concerns and suggestions are important and discussing them transparently at the Delhi EV forum is the best way to chart a joint roadmap for the successful implementation of Delhi EV policy,” he said.

“It also carries forth the legacy of how the Delhi EV policy was drafted after extensive consultations and discussions with all stakeholders. We are glad that the Delhi EV Forum will be the first such forum in India for continuous dialogue and engagement of stakeholders in the implementation of statewide EV policy,” Shah added.
