South Asia Energy Series on Accelerating Electric Vehicle Charging in South Asia Part II

Decarbonizing how we travel, needs switching from conventional petroleum-based vehicles to electric vehicles. The South Asia Energy Series on Accelerating EV Charging in South Asia (Part II) on May 06, 2021 discussed the economics of electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure and EV charging business models. USAID's regional program South Asia Regional Energy Hub (SAREH) and bilateral assistance program Smart Power for Advancing Reliability and Connectivity (SPARC) utilities collaborated with civil society organization Alliance for an Energy Efficient Economy (AEEE) to co-host this webinar. Private sector players like Magenta Power and Lithion Power added value to the session with industry insights on charging stations, safety and efficiency of battery charging and robust management and real-time governance.

Through our South Asia Energy Series, we promote knowledge exchange and learning on clean energy development and deployment, in South Asia. A central platform under the Asia EDGE initiative for USAID to coordinate and communicate all activities within South Asia, the United States Energy Association (USEA) is our implementing partner.
