E-Mobility in Indian Railways today at New Delhi in partnership with NITI Aayog

Transportation and mobility are critical drivers of innovation and economic growth in the 21st century. Rapidly evolving technologies and business models for delivering mobility services have dramatic potential to transform the global transportation sector in the times to come. Mobility that ranges from pedestrian, personal transport, to public transit and freight movement is extremely critical and impacts every aspect of life in urban as well as rural areas. Of late, there has been a paradigm shift which has led to an integral approach that focuses on shared, connected and clean mobility solutions customized to local needs. In addition to this, the solutions to be developed should keep the aspects of affordability, accessibility and inclusiveness in mind.
In the context of the same, MOVE Summit will be held at Vigyan Bhawan on 7th and 8th September 2018 which will include a wide range of stakeholders to be engaged towards building a public interest framework for the global mobility agenda. The summit will include participation from international Industry leaders, Research Organizations, Academia, Government, Civil Society and Media.
Indian Railways is a critical backbone of the transport infrastructure in the country and being the largest consumer of energy in the country has always been conscious about the way energy is utilized. As a part of the International Paris Agreement on climate change, 2015, India has pledged a reduction of 33-35% in emission intensity by 2030 from 2005 level. India has also set a target for transition to non-fossil fuel based energy with 40% of cumulative electricity generation capacity through renewable energy by 2030. One key sector of the Indian economy that could set a strategic example by turning green and meeting 2030 targets of India is the rail transport system.
