Shakti Participation in the Official Side-event: An Economy-wide Quantified Goal on Energy Efficiency in India
In an side event, part of the official side event during the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM 14) and Mission Innovation (MI8) Goa, Trupti Deshpande, Senior Programme Manager, Electric mobility, Shakti, participated as a panellist in the session ‘An Economy-wide Quantified Goal on Energy Efficiency in India’ where she focused on the need to make transport sector energy efficient given the 90% emission contribution from road transport. She put forth that increasing efficiency in transport sector can be achieved via stringent fuel efficiency norms, switching to clean transport like electric vehicles. Electric vehicles are ~70% efficient whereas ICE vehicles are only ~30% efficient.
“Working towards efficient transport will also require spreading awareness at the grass-root level, not only for increased adoption but also for good practices that will enhance energy efficiency”, added Trupti Deshpande.
