This report examines how the Indian charging infrastructure ecosystem could benefit from lessons learned from a more advanced EV market such as Germany. It highlights the importance of a data-driven approach to facilitate investment decisions and to ramp up the nascent EV charging industry in India. The availability and quality of data in Germany can be understood as a positive benchmark in this regard.
The report was written by Vanchhit Johri, a German Chancellor Fellow. The fellowship, which is funded by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, enabled the Fellow to research on the questions described above.
