India's domestic electric vehicle (EV) market is predicted to grow 49% between 2022 and 2030, reaching 10 million sales annually by 2030. However, the source of electricity that powers EVs must be decarbonised if they are to truly be zero-emission agents. Is that possible?
Considering the fact that the transport sector contributes to nearly one-fifth of global greenhouse gas emissions, it is natural that responsible governments would go the extra mile to decarbonize the sector. Up to 3-4 times more energy efficient than ICE vehicles, electric vehicles (EV) are laudably gaining traction across the world and from all stakeholders.
