INTRODUCTION

India is witnessing rapid urbanization which has led to rapid increase in demand for basic services like housing, water, sanitation and transport.  The total number of registered motor vehicles in India has increased rapidly over the past decade (2001–2015), from 55 million in 2001 to 192 million in 2015. The rapid increase in private vehicle ownership is mainly due to lack of good public transport facility. Currently, there are around 1.6 million registered buses in India, out of which only 170,000 are operated by public bus operators. Only 5,000 buses are operated under PPP model for city bus operation. There is need to increase the supply of buses in Indian cities to develop sustainable public transport.

The cities should have a larger vision to curb dependence on fossil fuel and reduce CO2 emissions. With most metropolitan areas targeting zero-emission environments, an increasing number of cities and transport companies are considering a fully-electric solution for their urban bus network. It is right time that public transport vehicles shift their source of power from diesel to electricity. 

ELECTRIC MOBILITY IN INDIA

The acceptance of electric and hybrid buses is slow in India, mainly due to cost factor and lack of awareness about technology. Government of India unveiled National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP) 2020 to accelerate the growth of the electric and hybrid components of the automotive sector. It focuses primarily on fast-tracking the manufacturing and introduction of EVs in India.

The Department of Heavy Industries (DHI) had launched FAME (Faster Adaptation and Manufacturing of (Hybrid &) Electric Vehicles) in April 2015 to promote manufacturing of electric and hybrid vehicles in India. The department is launching second phase of FAME policy with a key focus on promoting electric buses.

UITP Centre for Training, with support from Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation, has launched a training programme on Electric Buses in India. The course offers a comprehensive overview of the electric solution for urban bus networks, from the setting of a city strategy, the choice of technology, the procurement of buses, all the way to the implementation and operation of the system.

In addition to the interactive plenary sessions, workshops will allow participants to apply their learnings in small groups. Further, training program include site visit to two manufacturers – KPIT Technologies and Tata Motors.

OBJECTIVES

  • Introduce the electric solution, the different types of technologies (Opportunity Charging / Battery Swapping / Long Range) and compare their benefits and drawbacks
  • Understand how to get value from electric buses looking at their economic, environmental and societal feasibility
  • Learn from experience on how to implement and run electric bus lines successfully
  • Understand the implications for operations and infrastructure
  • New organisation chart  and trained manpower to maintain the fleet
