Major measures taken towards decarbonization:

  • The emphasis is on adopting Transformative Electric Vehicles (EVS) through the National Mission on Transformative Mobility and Battery Storage.
  • Production-linked Incentive (PLI) scheme has been introduced for the automobile and auto-component industry for manufacturing and development of advanced cell chemicals, battery storage.
  • The Rapid Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric (and Hybrid) Vehicles Scheme (FAME) India scheme has been implemented.
  • A target of 20% ethanol blending in petrol has been set by the year 2025.

Key challenges related to lithium-ion batteries powering EVs:

  • Risk of overheating and damage at high voltage.
  • The capacity of such batteries tends to deplete over time.
  • It takes longer to charge them.
  • Import dependence for lithium, which is limited to the lithium-triangle (Chile, Bolivia and Argentina).
