A path breaking approach to sustainable urban and rural transportation
Electric Bikes and Cars – are the Future of Transportation
Solar Power for Mobility is Sustainable, displaces fossil fuels and abates pollution.
Our hypothesis is that India can target more than 100GW solar easily if solar isused for charging electric vehicles.
Displacing petrol with solar is important as India imports 80%of its oil and
uses 50% of the export earnings for oil imports! We should reduce dependency
on imported fossil fuels for transportation and decrease the urban air pollution
by encouraging the use of solar power for mobility (electric cars, bikes and bicylces).
We should plan solar charging stations in ‘smart cities’ to begin with, and in
rural areas and along the highways in due course.
