GHG Emission Estimation and Electric Mobility Preparedness Assessment Tools - City Electric Mobility Strategy (CEMS)

GHG Emission Estimation and Electric Mobility Preparedness Assessment Tools - City Electric Mobility Strategy (CEMS)

Project details





Under “Sustainable Urban Mobility – Air quality, Climate Action, Accessibility (SUM-ACA)”, commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and jointly implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA), Government of India, Center of Excellence in Urban Transport (CoE-UT), CRDF has prepared a toolkit on City Electric Mobility Strategy (CEMS) that provides a framework for consideration of electric mobility as an integral part of the Comprehensive Mobility Plan (CMP) process which can be a supplement to the CMP toolkit (2014).

As part of the assessment framework for identifying action areas and potential interventions under those areas for faster adoption of electric mobility, the CEMS GHG Emission Estimation tool and the Electric Mobility Preparedness Assessment tool have been developed to assess the desired outcome. The GHG Emission Tool would help in identifying the level of electrification required for vehicle categories to meet plan targets, and concurrently Preparedness Assessment Tool highlights the focus sectors while strategizing implementation of electric mobility measures.   

‘City GHG Emissions Estimation Tool’ assesses the environmental impacts for future years for various scenarios developed. It enables urban transport researchers, planners, and administrators to estimate GHG emissions from the transport sector at the city level.

‘City Electric Mobility Adoption Preparedness Assessment Model’ calculates the city’s preparedness score across ten different focus areas that cover policy, infrastructure and customer domains in EV adoption response. The tool illustrates the areas of improvement in the city that need to be focused on to improve the area of city’s commitment, electricity generation and supply, preparedness by each mode, institutional coordination, awareness, etc., and also indicates the overall City's Electric Mobility Adoption Preparedness Index (EV-APAI).
