India can reduce 37% of carbon emissions and save 64% of projected land based energy demand by 2030 by the successful implementation of shared, electric and connected mobility future. This in all will reduce close to 150million ton in Diesel and petrol consumption for that year, saving close to Rs.4 lakh crore. The cumulative saving between the period 2017 to 2030 will be 876Million ton of petrol and diesel which accounts for Rs. 22 lakh crore or USD 330 billion but most importantly 1 gigatonne for carbon-dioxide emissions.
In addition to reducing energy demand, other benefits would include lower congestion as shared, public, and non-motorized mode of transportation serve an increased share of mobile demand. With public transportation running on electricity or lower carbon emission fuels, this would indirectly lead to improved public health. This has significant implications for India’s electricity sector and economy, supporting India’s ambitious renewable energy goals while saving money, providing jobs, and strengthening Indian industry.
