  • Roadmap for Standards and Labelling programme for tyres in India

    Vehicle fuel efficiency performance can be improved by improving various vehicular features like aerodynamics, tyres, transmission etc. Of these features, tyres offer the maximum potential to improve the overall vehicle fuel efficiency as the rolling resistance of tyres alone is estimated to contribute up to 20 to 30 percent of the total fuel consumed by the vehicle. As such, introduction of efficiency standards for tyres can enable significant fuel savings. Therefore, we commissioned this initiative to evaluate the existing standards for tyres in India and identify the key interventions required for establishing a stringent tyre standards and labelling programme in India.

  • Improving bus fuel efficiency through fleet driver training

    Fuel consumption of a bus depends on both technical and operational parameters such as vehicle design, driver behaviour, maintenance practices, road conditions and traffic patterns. Out of these the quickest and the most cost effective way to achieve better fuel efficiency, particularly in case of existing fleets, is through improved driver behaviour. Improved driver behaviour has the potential of increasing bus fuel economy by 7-10 percent. We commissioned this initiative to conduct training programmes for drivers from State road Transport Undertakings (STUs) on fuel efficient driving practices. A total of 1800 drivers from across the country were trained.

  • Research and Advocacy on Vehicular Emissions

    Undertaken By The Energy and Resource Institute (TERI)

    Undertaken By base All India

    Year 2013

    Deteriorating air quality in Indian cities is a growing and serious concern. A major cause of this is the increasing emissions from the rapidly growing transport sector. To curb this, while stricter emission and fuel efficiency standards are required for new vehicles, there is also a need to have better inspection and maintenance practices for in-use vehicles. In this context, Shakti initiated this project to conduct research on reforming the in-use vehicle testing and compliance mechanism.

  • Fuel efficiency standards for heavy duty vehicles in India

    Heavy Duty Vehicles (HDVs) comprise only 8 percent of the total vehicle fleet in India but consume nearly 38 percent of the total diesel consumed in the country and contribute approximately 60 percent of the total carbon dioxide emissions from the transport sector. Large amount of fuel savings and emission reduction can be achieved with fuel efficiency improvements of HDVs through formulation and implementation of fuel efficiency standards. Towards this, Shakti has supported various projects to address different issues impeding the standards formulation process.

  • Promoting Electric Vehicles in India

    Year 2017

    Emissions from the transport sector contribute significantly to deteriorating air quality and human health in cities. Transport accounts for 20% of global energy use and contributes 25% to 30% of emissions. With the rapid acceleration of the Indian automobile market, Electric Vehicles (EVs) are a promising pathway towards enhancing air-quality, energy security and economic opportunities. India is home to 53 cities with a population of over than a million. These prerogatives compel India to look at electric mobility options to meet its transportation needs in a sustainable manner.
