Fundamentals of electric vehicle charging technology and its grid integration

This study 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. 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 consolation 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 statewide.
