The case study was developed by the Asia LEDS Partnership (ALP) with guidance from the Transport working group and supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). It presents in detail the framework developed for Electric Mobility Policy in Sri Lanka.
The Government of Sri Lanka has taken several initiatives to promote electric vehicles in the country. Some of those initiatives include the electric vehicle deployment, development of charging infrastructure, subsidy plan for Electric Vehicles, plans, and targets for procurement, etc. but a comprehensive long term vision for Electric Vehicle Policy is not in place. A comprehensive document with legal backing will help to bring all aspects related to Electric Mobility together. The policy at the national level is expected to show the way forward to all the initiatives across the country and it will help to integrate the standalone efforts. The current case study document presents the framework for Electric Mobility and was prepared to guide the Government of Sri Lanka with a set of procedures.
The framework for Electric Mobility Policy has been developed based on the one to one discussions and meetings with the government officials, responses from the consultation meetings held with various stakeholders, and secondary research. It is envisaged that this framework acts as a guiding document for the Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation to promote electric mobility in Sri Lanka.
