Electro Mobility – $Trillion World Tech-Leadership Opportunity
November25, 2017 (C) Ravinder Singh email@example.com
Quest event on Electro Mobility was well organized but was mainly focused on Li-Ion Battery and Charger technologies – both are not the primary mobility technologies.
Electro Mobility for India is $Trillion World Leadership Opportunity
In 2011 at one IPR event I told RIL R&D head ‘Your Company Has So Much Cash that You Can Promote 100,000 Technologies and Could Become first $Trillion Company in the world.’
RIL engaged RA Mashelkar who Misled CSIR for many years, had $10b annual budget couldn’t develop a Single Commercial Technology – in last 6 years is largely a FRAUD.
Rahul Bajaj led Opposition to ‘India joining PCT’ is reduced to 9% of 2-Wheelers Sold from 70% –5% in Value, may be reduced to 1% if it doesn’t Switch to Electro Mobility.
RIL invested heavily on RJIO also – since acquiring 4G license in 2010 money has gone out of RIL Accounts so far – may not be profitable for many more years.
Siting through the event I recalled my ‘Electro Mobility Ideas’ over last 45 years, since introduced to Steam, Diesel & Electric Locos, travelled in Locos during education tour – realized my Mobility Ideas alone could be $Trillion Opportunity for India and exports.
Li-Ion Battery cost in wholesale has reduced to just $40/Kwh and weight reduced to 1kg/Kwh.Last time I purchased a Lead Acid Battery it cost $60/Kwh weigh 20 kg.
Both Li-Ion & Lead Acid Batteries Cost almost Same, Compete with each other and both can improve Performance & Reduce cost. In recent times Price of Lithium metal increased three fold while price of lead has reduced. Recycling of Lead Acid batteries is over 70% – Lithium yet to begin. For stationary ‘Energy Storage’ applications and short distance – Lead Acid batteries shall prevail for a long time.
Opposition from Power Generators & Distributers
Ø Off-grid Solar can charge cars and two wheelers practically free or less than Rs.1 Per kwh or Unit – NTPC & NDPL offered Electricity for Charging at Rs.5 & Rs.5:50/U. Charging stations in Rural-Urban areas may retail energy at Rs.8 to Rs.10/Unit.
Ø NTPC estimated only 7m Electric Vehicles to be on Road in India by 2030 & projected 15 BU demand, when it could be 50-100 times or over 80% Vehicles. Energy required for Electro-Mobility shall exceed 200 BU – mostly cheap SolarPV.
Ø NTPC was right in stating that charging Electric Vehicles at night would come from Coal Fired unit – but most vehicles except public transport operate for 0.5-2 hours a day would be plugged to charging stations in day time as well.
Switch to 100% Electric Railways is Switch to Coal Power
Ø Above valid for Railways – Switch to 100% Electrification to cost Rs.50,000 Cr on new Locos – 25,000 MW of new Connected Load, 10,000 MW of Peaking Power to
cost over Rs.1,00,000 Crores – Rs.1,50,000 Crores on Coal Power Switch.
Ø Diesel Locos can be ‘ENGAGED IN STARTING-EXTRA PULL’ than discarded.
Ø There are OPERATIONAL Improvements opportunities in Railways.
Ø India should promote 200,000 MW Multi-Purpose Hydro Power.
ü Farmers May Put Up 1 MW SolarPV Generators – Charge Batteries FREE for Purchase of Fast Food – Rs.100 for 2-Wheelers and Rs.500 for Cars or Four Wheelers.
