In the year preceding the pandemic, there was a scarcity in awareness & a little resistance to adoption of renewable energies. In 2020 however we’ve all been shown the mirror on how our lifestyles & personal choices can have a direct effect on someone else.

With the pandemic wreaking havoc around the globe, there is a sudden concentrated focus on sustainable ways of living and transitioning into a cleaner energy future.

With a radical change required to address the current climate change and global warming issues, the only element in renewable energy that has a high potential for easy adoption is electric mobility.

Electric vehicles will have an indispensable role to play in achieving our collective net zero emission targets by 2050.

According to CEEW, In the India ecosystem, the estimate for total EV sales is 14.8B by 2030 alone, the current scenario is promising with a steady increase in sale of EVs even in the pandemic years of 2020 & 2021. The states with the highest adoption rates are Tripura & Delhi with 52 & 28 EVs sold respectively for every 1000 non-EVs.

Covid-19 has not been easy on anyone, especially on businesses, there are many challenges that lie ahead but it has been predicted that the pandemic could have beneficial trends in some EV segments, such as two wheelers. People have been getting used to using their phones for practically every chore and errand, hence last mile delivery & ride hailing segments can see a potential growth amidst the lockdowns.

There is much needed attention & focus required in this space.

At Shell E4, we are accelerating these crucial discussions by bringing together people who are influencers and experts in this field, from within Shell, globally & from the Startup ecosystem in a series of panel discussions, called “Shell E4’s Energy talk”.
