SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORTATION

Transport is fundamental to
development in a large scale, global sense. The transport options available in
a country reflect its level of development. Effective transport systems enable
people to access vital services, such as healthcare and education, to travel
for employment, to transport and sell goods, to access social networks, and to
make their voices heard in the political arena. Ultimately, effective transport
leads to improved social development and economic growth. India is amoung the
leading manufacturers and users of automobiles in the world. It is estimated
that 20 million new vehicles have been registered during the 2016-17 year. All
major Automobile companies have already started their production in full
stretch as they found, the market in central Asia quiet high. New living
conditions in the fast moving society have made people more dependent on
vehicles. This trend made their life easier and faster making travelling more
entertaining.

India is undergoing massive urbanization,
which brings with it social, economic and environmental challenges. The
environmental effects that are caused by the burning of fossil fuels have
created various worse effects in India. The emissions from the combustion of
fossil fuels result in the formation of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide etc.…
which are harmful for human health. 
Recent surveys suggest that Indian cities like Delhi and Agra are amoung
the worlds most polluted cities. The contribution from diesel-powered trucks,
Buses and other vehicles are to be considered as a major contributing factor
towards pollution. The intensity of pollution in Indian cities was clearly
witnessed during the winter months of December. Adding further, fuel efficiency
is now considered by users as the cost of fossil fuels is increasing day by
day. The availability of fossil fuels in the future is another question that
also has to be answered. These factors have paved way for a sustainable
transportation system.

India is about to embark on the most
ambitious electric-car transformation in the world. The government has launched
a National Electric Mobility Mission Plan to switch India to 100% electric
vehicle mobility by 2030. This would reduce Green House Gas (GHG) emissions to
a significant level.

Presently more than 65% of country’s
electricity comes from coal. By pushing electric vehicles in a big way, India’s
electricity needs are going to skyrocket. Along with this Mobility mission
plan, initiatives to harness the solar energy for charging these vehicles have
to be initiated as early as possible to tackle this increment in electricity
usage that may arise in the near future. India needs to develop services and
infrastructure for the mobility of people and goods—advancing economic and
social development to benefit today’s and future generations—in a manner that
is safe, affordable, accessible, efficient, and resilient.

The issues of implementing charging
stations will be a major obstacle in the Electric Mobility Mission Plan.
However, there are few initiatives that can be elaborated to full swing to
combat this issue. One amoung them is the draft initiative put forward by
Kerala State Government and Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB). According to
their plan, KSEB will be providing charged batteries, which can be swapped with
the used batteries. Along with this the government primary focus is on
providing subsidies for EV purchase and to target on giving permits only to E-
auto rickshaws.

The possible solution for combating
the charging issue is to utilize the solar energy by installing a network of
charging stations powered by grid-connected solar photovoltaic systems. These
solar panels can be installed in roof tops, fields, vacant spaces etc.…The
electricity produced from these solar power panels can be used for the home
appliances and the extra charge is supplied to the grid. During night, when
there is no sunlight the energy needed is supplied from the grid. The extra
energy supplied to the grid should be paid by the company who supplies this energy
for charging. Thus, this system will provide an income to the family.

The main question arises on how to
implement this charging network? This can be done by provides training to women
self-help groups in the installation of solar charging stations for electric
vehicles. In collaboration with women self-help groups, residence associations,
companies and institutions the project aims to create a network of charging
stations powered by grid-connected solar photovoltaic systems. The focus is to
reduce the energy demand on the grid due to electric vehicles by locally
producing the charging power in a ‘green’ manner through solar panels. It will
foster an ecosystem for sustainable transport in India and create significant
employment opportunities for women and youth.

India being the 7 the largest
country, receives huge amount of solar energy which remains unharnessed.
Through the National Rural Employment Generation Scheme the government can
provide training to women groups and unskilled youth to participate in this new
programme. Thus it can provide employment to a large number of unemployed
citizens.  In the 21st century, we have
woken up to the fact that there is a need for us to care for the world around
us. I believe, technology advancing sustainable transport is a high priority,
and when considering the scale of the health and climate challenges, it is an
imperative.
