Feb 19, Delhi: Gadkari while launching the nationwide campaign said that electric fuel is a major alternative for fossil fuels which have an import bill of Rs. 8 lakh Crore. When compared to conventional fuels the electric fuel has low cost, reduced emissions and is also indigenous, urged the Power Minister R. K. Singh to encourage value addition to Carbon Dioxide which is released from thermal power plants.


Also mentioned the opportunities and potential of electric cooking in India. And observed that the electrification of public transport is not only economical but also eco friendly. While speaking about diversification of agriculture towards the energy and power sector the Transport Minister said that the Ministry of Power should promote the generation of green power from agriculture waste and biomass which can also benefit the farmers across the country.


The Go Electric Campaign is an important initiative that would help in reducing the import dependence of our country in the coming years and would be an important step towards a cleaner and greener future. The campaign is aimed at creating awareness at the PAN-India level and is expected to boost the confidence of Electric Vehicle manufacturers.


Power & NRE Minister Shri R.K. Singh expressed confidence that this campaign would go a long way in fulfilling the main objective of Energy Transition to move ahead on the path of a Low Carbon economy, thereby saving our Country and the Planet from the adverse impact of Climate Change. It will also help in reducing the country's dependence on other countries for energy needs. On the occasion, Minister Shri R K Singh also emphasised the use of Clean and Safe Electric Cooking and urged the citizens to adopt Electric Cooking which is safe and can benefit consumers due to Low Heat Wastage being energy efficient.


The launch event also witnessed the unveiling of the “Go Electric” logo which depicts the evolution of the e-mobility ecosystem. Audio Visual Creatives specifically designed for enhancing consumer awareness were also screened during the launch. An exhibition was organised by the industry players displaying different electric vehicles including e-buses, e-cars, 3-wheelers, and 2-wheelers apart from available charging options such as Fast Chargers and Slow Chargers.


The event was attended by delegates from State Governments, PSUs, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and other industry players from across sectors. The daylong event observed panel discussions on “Scaling up of e-mobility Infrastructure in India and Role of different Stakeholders in e-mobility”. The panel discussions were attended by the industry as well as policy experts as panellists from NTPC, EESL, NITI Aayog, etc.
