Delhi Solutions Workshop
Cities in India are stepping up to build, pilot, and scale urban mobility solutions that are clean, shared, and people-centric. Delhi has a significant role to play in this transition. Most recently, the Delhi government has developed a draft electric vehicle (EV) policy to accelerate EV adoption in Delhi and complement its efforts to address vehicular pollution.
To translate policy action into progress on the ground, the Delhi government, through the Dialogue and Development Commission of Delhi (DDC-D), RMI India and Rocky Mountain Institute partnered to host the Urban Mobility Lab—a platform that supports Indian cities in identifying, implementing, and scaling pilot projects and solutions that transform how people and goods move.
As part of the Urban Mobility Lab initiative in Delhi, DDC-D, RMI India and Rocky Mountain Institute hosted a Solutions Workshop on 26 and 27 June 2019 to work collaboratively with government and industry leaders to design mobility solutions for implementation.
Although the workshop focused on Delhi, public- and private-sector actors across India’s mobility system can take inspiration from these concepts and build on them to accelerate India’s transition to a clean, shared, and people-centric mobility future.
At the workshop, solution providers shared ambitious goals for deploying clean, shared, and people-centric mobility solutions in Delhi. Over the next year, the participants intend to deploy nearly 35,000 electric and accessible passenger vehicles, at least 1,000 EVs for last-mile deliveries, and several public charging and swapping stations across Delhi. In addition to vehicles and hardware, other goals include getting thousands of users onto digital ride-hailing and data-sharing platforms and ensuring that information related to routes and fares is accessible in multiple formats.
Nine solution providers participated in the passenger segment of the Delhi Urban Mobility Lab: Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), Ezy Mov Solutions, IIIT-Delhi, Lithium Urban Technologies, Ola Electric Mobility, SmartE, Sun Mobility and Piaggio, VA-YU, and Yulu. For the freight segment, DDC and RMI are organizing a first-of-its-kind pilot on the electrification of last-mile deliveries in Delhi, called Deliver Electric Delhi.
