Mr Randheer Singh, Director, Electric Mobility and ACC Program, NITI Aayog, along with Ms Gunjan Krishna, IAS, announced the launch of the Policy Report, ‘Catalysing E-Mobility:: Solutions to Support India’s Startups and Innovators’’. The report is created and designed by Micilio Mobility in association with RMI India Foundation & NSRCEL, IIM Bengaluru, with the goal of providing support to clean mobility startups and innovators in India. The report was the outcome of the Catalysing E-Mobility: India Innovators Forum, a forum conducted by Micelio Mobility, NSRCEL, and RMI India Foundation in September 2022 to solicit open dialogue among relevant stakeholders in the clean mobility sector, such as startups, venture funds and representatives from academia. The report goes into extensive detail about the current state of the clean mobility ecosystem, emerging challenges and possible solutions.
Furthermore, Micelio Mobility also announced a collaboration with ARAI and the Ministry of Heavy Industries (MHI) to establish Digital Twin Centres for Emerging Automotive Systems. The Digital Twin Centres will act as a virtual representation of up-to-date, real-life scenarios to facilitate and enhance simulations, testing, monitoring and integration of clean mobility solutions. This will lead to reductions in cost and an increase in efficiency. The Centres will be utilised by startups, MSMEs, researchers and academia for the development of indigenous automotive solutions with reduced costs and increased efficiencies. Micelio will serve as an industry partner for the initiative and help catalyse the clean mobility ecosystem for startups by facilitating the use of high-end, expensive and emerging technologies like AI & ML technologies, HIL system, and an integrated computational materials engineering simulation platform. The Centres have been set up, and customers can begin using them by March 2023; the joint facilities will be available at Pune, Bangalore and IIT Guwahati.
