THE ECONOMIC TIMES SMART MOBILITY SUMMIT 2017

As one of the pillars of economic development for any country, the transportation network is critical to the national infrastructure. With Indian transportation industry growing at a CAGR of 15 percent and a budget outlay of almost Rs. 4 trillion in the next fiscal in creating and upgrading transportation infrastructure, India’s transportation sector is undergoing a boom. However, it has frequently been a source of greenhouse gas emissions and a major cause of concern for the government as they are trying to reduce the carbon footprint to address environmental issues and decrease their dependence on oil as a source of fuel. India is still following BS IV as against EURO 6 implemented in European countries, which is equivalent to BS VI.

The Second Auto Fuel Vision and Policy 2025 notified by Government of India in May 2014 lays the map for fuel emission norms up to 2025. In order to adopt the latest emission standards, Government of India has decided to completely skip BS V norms and has announced to adopt and implement BS VI norms from April 2020.

Therefore, besides vehicular technologies and emission norms, other two important factors to be considered in India for reducing carbon emission are periodic inspection, maintenance of in-use vehicles and better road and traffic management.

All this can only be achieved by discussing the latest technologies, government policies, success stories and facing the current environmental situation with complete seriousness. The summit aims to lay down a blueprint for the future, driven by innovation and the vision to provide cleaner, safer and faster transportation infrastructure.

The summit is a movement to unite the visionaries who believe carbon emission has no place in the future and going ahead the key is to have smart road and traffic management systems. It is also a platform to showcase success stories from across the world that will inspire the key stakeholders to promote the cause and ensure that everything is being done to meet their respective national goals for smart and green transportation.

The Economic Times Smart Mobility Summit will focus on Hybrid vehicles, KERS systems, alternate fuels, smart parking, its (intelligent transportation system ), tolling, telematics, safety & security, mass transportation, road infrastructure & construction. The increasing demand for vehicles, coupled with citizens adopting a healthy lifestyle and growing environmental concerns will likely makes us adopt to this change for smart green mobility.


At the summit, you will hear about:

Smart Transportation

Transportation of the Future

Role of new age technologies such as IoT

Alternative Fuel Vehicles

Public Awareness about Green Transportation

Government Policies Redefining the Transportation Sector

Seamless Scalability Complimenting City Growth

Reducing Carbon Footprint with New Age Technologies

Realizing Lower Dependence on Oil, in Line with National Goals

Electrification of Public Transport – Lessons from European Cities
European Union commissioned various studies to document the pilot of e-buses and supporting infrastructure like ZeEUS (Zero Emission Urban Bus Systems), ELIPTIC (Electrification of Public Transport in Cities) and ASSURED (fASt and Smart charging solutions for full size Urban heavy Duty applications). The purpose of these projects is to introduce e-buses as part of the urban bus network and build multi-purpose electric public transport infrastructure.
Government of India is promoting the use of electric vehicles in public transport, with the launch of FAME Scheme. Further, the government is incentivizing industry to make investment in the electric mobility. India can learn from the experience of European cities for the introduction of e-buses in the cities. This session will include presentation about European experience in e-buses, followed with discussion on key challenges in India.
