India’s energy transition is underway and it can rise among top countries in the world in manufacturing batteries.
Why It Matters
In support of its commitment to promote renewable energy and electric vehicles in the country, India has the opportunity to assume a global leadership position in battery manufacturing and consider new policy commitments to achieve it.
We aim to facilitate collaboration between electricity-sector stakeholders, through thought leadership, and national learning platforms in areas such as system integration and optimization, renewable energy, smart integration of electric vehicles, and rural electrification.
RMI India is an ongoing advisor and is supporting the execution of NITI Aayog’s flagship EV and energy storage initiative.
We are working with DISCOMs, consumers, and government actors in stakeholder sessions to understand their needs and coordinate on how reform and new business models can best meet electricity demands and improve service through advanced generation strategies.
