The Indian government has started an initiative with 30% electric vehicle sales by 2030 along with its clean energy generation. The integration of small quantities of EVs into the distribution grid will not impact the grid. However, moderate to high penetration of EVs into the distribution grid would most likely create some challenges in grid operation and management. This study suggests various interventions required from policies to technical required to facilitate the EV integration at large scale – for both central authorities and DISCOMs. The study was supported by conducting a simulation study – present and 2030 scenario – for a Delhi area.
