  • Indian cities are increasingly looking to deploy cleaner modes of transportation (CNG-fuelled, electric buses and hybrid buses) to improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. While CNG buses are already widely used in the country, electric buses (pure and hybrid) are also gaining popularity.
  • A proactive policy framework has been the driving factor for the adoption of clean buses in India. Incentives offered under the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid & Electric Vehicles (FAME) scheme have motivated states to formulate plans for the adoption of electric vehicles. The state transport undertakings (STUs) of Maharashtra, Himachal Pradesh, Goa, Delhi, Telangana and Kerala have adopted several electric buses, placed new orders, announced major plans and introduced state-level policy changes to facilitate the deployment of such buses.
  • However, transport being a public service, factors like affordability, high upfront cost, and limited local manufacturing capacity can adversely impact the adoption of clean buses. Besides, the high cost of batteries and a non-existent charging infrastructure limit the adoption of hybrid and electric buses
  • The government is taking action to resolve these issues. FAME II, which is expected to be launched in March 2019, will lay emphasis on the development of charging infrastructure and local manufacturing of lithium-ion batteries. In March 2018, the Ministry of Power clarified that charging stations do not require separate licences, clearing the ambiguity around this issue, which was holding back private investments in this space. This development is expected to help speed up the installation of charging stations by private parties across the country. Meanwhile, non-fiscal incentives in the form of tax waivers and GST reductions have been extended and are likely to act as long-term incentives for both STUs and manufacturers.
  • Overall, India is an attractive market for players in the clean bus industry. Several global players such as Goldstone-BYD and Eicher have entered the Indian market while domestic manufacturers such as Tata Motors and Ashok Leyland are making innovations in this area.
  • The mission of this conference is to explore the emerging trends and developments in the clean bus market and discuss the outlook for the future. It will examine the opportunities, issues and challenges in the clean bus segment; assess the electricity needs and requirements; discuss the plans and requirements of key stakeholders; examine charging and other infrastructure requirements; and showcase noteworthy solutions and technologies. It will also provide a platform for the industry to share experiences, and exchange views and opinions.
