Investing in India's EV Transition

This virtual roundtable will outline the pathways to achieving 30% vehicle electrification in India by 2030 and ways to bridge the investment gap to achieve this target.

Decarbonization of the transport sector will be fundamental to reduce the impacts of global climate change and to achieve India’s ambitious climate targets. The Government of India aims for electric vehicles (EVs) to account for at least 30% of all new automotive sales by 2030. While the target will bring enormous advantages in terms of abating carbon emissions and enhancing India’s energy security, a new report estimates that substantially more foreign direct investment is required in EVs and batteries to achieve the EV transition ambitions.

This webinar will present the findings of a new report, Investor Perspectives on Accelerating Growth in the Indian EV Ecosystem, by Invest India, Columbia University’s Center on Global Energy Policy, the International Institute for Sustainable Development, and the Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations. Speakers will consider pathways to achieving 30% vehicle electrification in India by 2030, including how to bridge India's EV investment gap.
