We support India’s ambitious renewable energy and clean mobility goals by partnering with leaders in the government and the private sector on projects at the national, state, and city levels.

Why It Matters

India has the opportunity to create equitable access to clean energy and mobility and, in doing so, deliver lasting societal and environmental benefits for generations to come. But decisive and urgent action is required to capture the opportunities at hand. The next five years are crucially important given India’s rate of economic growth and development. The transformational opportunities now on the horizon for mobility, the electricity system, and industry are significant but perishable. The range of outcomes in itself is consequential globally, and it’s likely to influence many other developing countries.

Who’s Involved

RMI India is working closely with India’s premier national policy think tank, the National Institution for Transforming India (NITI Aayog), on thought leadership for clean energy and mobility transformation. We are further working with the Department of Heavy Industry on accelerating the roll out of electric buses in India under the FAME Scheme and the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs on the government’s flagship smart cities initiative. We work with many additional government and industry experts to explore technologies, business models, and policies and to develop actionable steps to help India achieve an advanced mobility and energy future.

Electric Buses

India’s economic growth and the build-out of its urban infrastructure are coinciding with dramatic cost reductions in clean energy technologies. This creates an opportunity for India to leapfrog energy and mobility development pathways that other nations have pursued. As demand for public transport rises in this decade, a significant opportunity exists to electrify this new demand.
