QUESTIONNAIRE FOR THEMATIC AREAS FOR DIGITAL INVESTMENT IN INDIA AND THE EUROPEAN UNION

    

Delegation of the European Union to India and Bhutan (EUDEL) has commissioned a “Study and mapping on Thematic Areas for Digital Investment in India and the European Union”.   

EU-India Summit 2020 has agreed to organize a high-level Digital Investment Forum (DIF) to explore associated opportunities and challenges with stakeholders from both sides. The Digital Investment Forum (DIF) is providing a platform to provide opportunities for achieving some of the goals set forth in the EU- India Roadmap 2025 and the EU-India Connectivity Partnership.

 The study's main goal is to map the EU and India ecosystems' strengths, weaknesses, initiatives, and activities in four thematic areas- cyber security, digital healthcare, smart cities, and microelectronics to identify the potential for EU-India digital investment. This study is being coordinated by Global Business Inroads (GBI).

So, we have designed a questionnaire and request you to kindly share your valuable inputs through the questionnaires. PFB India-EU questionnaire links for you to give your responses: 

Indian stakeholders - https://forms.gle/j5oEwP5jJ9K8bXQ67

EU stakeholders - https://forms.gle/Lcty2WNG7gh1Ltfh6

This would help us to validate our initial findings and collate your inputs that will feed into the proceedings of the Digital Investment Forum (DIF) taking place later this year.

SMART EFLEET AND ELECTRIFICATION OF BUS FLEETS

We are collaborating with VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd (VTT) to plan and deploy optimal zero-emission vehicle fleets through a Smart eFleet simulation solution. VTT is a visionary research, development, and innovation partner for companies and society.

 

The Smart eFleet is a system-level simulation toolbox for optimal dimensioning of electric vehicle fleets (buses, trucks and etc.) and techno-economical evaluation of various deployment scenarios. It can support the zero-emission transition of existing vehicle fleets or help redesign and reoptimize in case of partially implemented solutions. The tool can scale up scenarios in a modular in any city or environment considering various practicalities from the specific operational environment (city’s topology, road infra, weather conditions, stops/delivery points and etc.), applied vehicle technologies (with specific technical characteristics and battery capacity), and location and capacity of the existing or planned charging infrastructure. The tool creates a digital twin of the transport network and allows to study of various deployment scenarios fitting the operational constraints and projecting the cost for any of it by providing Total Cost of Ownership calculations to support the economic viability assessment, thus reducing the risk of costly mistakes in procuring vehicles and deploying charging infrastructure. Please click on this link for a short video about the Smart eFleet platform

 

Please reach out to rchengappa@globalbusinessinroads.com to explore how you could leverage the VTT smart eFleet tool for easy decision making and faster deployment of EVs, based on simulation data evidence.
