India is a country where most of the people relies on public transport buses as a means to travel from
one place to another. Currently more than 1.6 million buses are registered in India, and the public bus
sector operates 170,000 buses carrying roughly 70 million people per day. With the number of public
transport buses increasing day by day, it is seen that the amount of carbon emissions which is taking
place due to burning of fuels from these vehicles have risen up tremendously. So it becomes important
find out possible alternatives to these problems.
One such alternatives is the use of electric buses. The main advantage of using electric buses is that it
has less impact on the environment and also it has a lower cost of energy. Although a lot of development
and progress has been made in this field, but in order to reach the zenith the concept and utilization of
electric buses should be made in such a way that our country becomes a hub of development of electric
This paper will focus mainly on the different ways of development of electric buses in the world and
how these developments can be implemented in India. Different technologies in this field that are
being adopted in different parts of the world will also be discussed. Further insight will be done on
the key challenges that need to be taken into consideration in the development of these
