Why this question comes in the mind
On 24 March 2020, the Government of India under Prime Minister Narendra Modi ordered a nationwide lockdown for 21 days, limiting movement of the entire 1.3 billion population of India as a preventive measure against the COVID-19 pandemic in India.
The nation was a total lockdown these Corona Virus Earth started mending.
Everyone was is in their apartments due to the coronavirus lockdown. There are many difficulties of staying inside in a 21-day lockdown, but a certain aspect of this lockdown was connected with environmental sanitation. While the level of pollution in the cities was seen to be very low, it has also cleared the air.
There was a piece of great news has come from Jalandhar. Punjab has seen colossal growth in the air levels. The mountains of the Dhauladhar range of the Himalayan Mountains in Himachal Pradesh are evident from Jalandhar. The Dhauladhar mountain range in Himachal Pradesh extends between Kangra and Mandi district. Himachal Pradesh Tourism tweeted and shared this news with the souls.
Diminish in Green gas and Low Contamination
- According to data from the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), the graph of the factors responsible for pollution in these cities before the lockdown is implemented and after the lockdown has been reported. Of these, the maximum support has been given to the three cities of NCR, Delhi, Noida and Gurugram.
- According to CPCB data on air quality during the lockdown in these cities, the amount of PM2.5 and PM10 in Jaipur has been decreased by up to 55 per cent. Significantly, the administration had declared a lockdown for the first time in the entire nation from March 25 to April 14 in the wake of the Coronavirus change.
- According to the report made by ‘Climate Trends’, an organization working in the field of environmental security, based on analysis of data before and after the lockdown of CPCB, 53.77 per cent of the PM2.5 volume during the lockdown in Jaipur from 25 March to 6 April.
- And PM10 volume has dropped by 55.13 per cent. This report has been developed based on a similar analysis of the quantity found in these cities of particulate particles PM2.5 and PM10, nitrogen dioxide and nitric oxide (NOx) and sulfur dioxide (SO2), which make air quality poisonous.
It is noteworthy that PM 2.5 plays an important role in increasing vehicular air pollution, while the level of PM 10 increases when the number of dust particles in the air increases due to construction work and other activities.
According to the report, the cities where the amount of elements responsible for pollution has fallen by more than 50 per cent, include Delhi, Noida and Gurugram of NCR. Therefore, the normal level of PM2.5 was recorded at 68.80 from 10 March to 23 March at all 35 air quality monitoring centres in Delhi, while it fell by 43.59 per cent to 38.81 from 25 March to 6 April.
What will be the infinity of Electric car In India?
2017 can be a great year for the electric vehicle industry. By 2030 most car firms have turned to electric vehicles to make all the cars in the range electric. In fact, a document linked to the Electric Vehicle Policy of NITI Aayog unveiled the roadmap to electrify all cars in 15 years. After this, the matter of electrification of all the vehicles in the country will start catching up. Mobility provider companies like Ola, Uber and Zoom have also started moving towards Mahindra’s electric cars. India Stage Protocol was created to create a framework for future electric charging stations.
‘Government support for electric vehicles necessary’.
The government did this ‘big’ work…
- The government has also announced a reward for the purchase of buses, taxis and three-wheelers used in public transport in 11 cities as part of efforts to reduce vehicular pollution in cities.
- This subsidy will be published under the Fame India Scheme of the Ministry of Heavy Industries. Delhi, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Jaipur, Mumbai, Lucknow, Hyderabad, Indore, Kolkata, Jammu and Guwahati have been selected in the first round.
- Authorities was believing that the electric vehicles business could be worth one billion dollars in 2018.
Role of the international names
Global companies have also combined hands for electric vehicles in India. Suzuki has joined hands with Toyota, Mahindra with Ford and Renault has joined hands with Nissan. Companies like Honda, Mercedes Benz, BMW, Volvo, JLR etc. are also working on a plan to bring electric vehicles to India. At present, there are about 1% of electric vehicles in comparison to all vehicles worldwide. According to industry experts, by 2030 one-third of the vehicles will be electrified.
Difficulties in INDIA
Power shortage will be a challenge. The vision of electric vehicles is testing due to the lack of horsepower in India. Work can also be done to get full power to run vehicles. Experts claim that 90% of power in India is made of fuel. In such a state, reducing contamination from electric cars is low. Goenka believes that electric vehicles will emit 30 to 40% less carbon dioxide gas than traditional vehicles despite high power output.
Focus on hybrid carriers
According to Vikram Kirloskar, vice-chairman of Toyota Kirloskar Motor, there is a need to focus on hybrid vehicles in India. This will cut oil import tax. He said that a good start has been done, but energy security and increasing pollution are two challenges. These can be dealt with by promoting hybrid cars.
Electric vehicle (EVS) game changer how?
EVs can prove to be game-changers for India.
Actually, EVs are at least 3 to 3.5 times more energy-efficient than traditional internal combustion engine-based vehicles for regular service.
Apart from this, EVs do not cause any discharges, hence there is no local contamination. Thus the selection of EVs will not only prove to be an essential step towards decreasing oil imports, but they can also help develop local air spirit.
Want to be made
Organizations such as the International Solar Alliance (ISA), launched by India and France, can play an important role in facilitating such business.
For example, ISA segment countries such as Australia, Chile, Brazil, Ghana and Tanzania are rich in lithium resources.
Similarly nations like Congo, Madagascar and Cuba can partner for the supply of cobalt while Burundi, Brazil and Australia are rich in nickel stocks. Significantly, we are technically less versed in lithium battery manufacturing.
Significantly, ISRO has expressed a desire to transfer its in-house technology to non-specifically adequate production companies which are a welcome move. In addition, in-house lithium-ion batteries are expected to be made soon by the Central Electro Chemical Research Institute (Karaikudi, Tamil Nadu) and Rasi (RAASI) Solar Energy Pvt.
