PROBLEM STATEMENT 1: ISLANDS OF SUSTAINABILITY: CAN WE CREATE A SUSTAINABLE ECOSYSTEM?
With increasing EV penetration and the Indian Government's push to achieve electrification by 2030, the demand for electricity will steadily rise. This increasing demand will require infrastructure (e.g. charging stations) and in densely populated cities, existing electric grids might not be able to supply the required electricity. However, as the world moves to a community-driven solution approach, propose solutions/models by which the demand-supply needs can be efficiently self-managed or addressed in a cost/time effective way.
