“Union Budget 2023 looks promising for green growth and developing a sustainable ecosystem in India, keeping circularity in focus. The allocation of INR 35,000 crore to achieve the target of Net Zero by 2030 and energy transition seems to be a positive and a good move by the government in imposing a green credit programme under Environment Protection Act that will benefit companies. Since electric mobility is growing in India at a rapid pace YOY and considerably contribute to sustainability, the national green hydrogen program will develop huge potential in lowering carbon intensity and reducing dependency on fossil fuel imports supported by lithium ion batteries for all kind of NEV’s. With the increase of funding in green hydrogen, battery energy storage systems with a capacity of 4000 MWh will be supported with viability-gap funding and renewables. The relief from custom duties on lithium-ion cells for batteries for another year will further help in strengthening the industry. Still India would need to focus on recycling of batteries and produce materials in India, to create a sustainable Electric mobility ecosystem in India. The government has also continued its efforts to support start-ups by offering tax benefits by extending the advantage through March 31, 2024.”
