Steeply falling technology costs and business – model innovation are driving the world’s transition to renewable energy and electric vehicles. Against this background, NITI Aayog, in collaboration with various ministries and industry partners, is organising ‘MOVE: Global Mobility Summit’ in New Delhi on 7th and 8th September, 2018. This Summit will help drive Government’s goals for vehicle electrification, renewable energy integration and job growth and also speed up India’s transition to a clean energy economy.
What will the Summit include?
MOVE Summit aims to bring together and engage with key stakeholders within the rapidly transforming global mobility landscape and to evolve a public interest framework for a shared, connected, zero emission and inclusive mobility agenda for the future. The Summit will constitute three designated components – The Conclave, the Expo and the Featured Events.
The Summit has been organised along key ‘tracks’ to anchor debate and deliberations on towards preparing a collective mobility agenda. The six tracks or themes for the Summit will focus on:
(i) Asset Utilization and Services;
(ii) Comprehensive Electrification ;
(iii) Alternative Energy;
(iv) Reinventing Public Transit;
(v) Logistics and Goods Transport;
(vi) Data Analytics and Mobility.
‘MOVEMENTUM’, the Expo will feature exciting future technologies and cutting edge innovations which will shape the mobility paradigm, showcasing India’s push towards transformative mobility solutions.
The Global Mobility Summit, 2018 also includes Featured Events such as Breakout sessions, Fireside chats, Innovation spotlights, Hackathons, Mobility Pitch Competitions and Networking Sessions. These are planned in collaboration with industry sponsors and partners offering informal insights into what constitutes transformative mobility.
National Strategy for Transforming Mobility
NITI Aayog has also been working towards evolving a National Strategy for Transforming Mobility, in the spirit of cooperative and competitive federalism, urging all States and Union territories to formulate state-specific comprehensive strategies by constituting respective State Task Forces. Inputs received from the various States will be integrated with global best practices to come up with a National Strategy, which will also be launched.
