Abstract

To combat climate change and promote cleaner transportation, India aims to have at least 30% of new vehicle sales be electric by 2030. Achieving this goal requires a strong network of easily accessible charging stations. This project examines the potential of using renewable energy for these stations in Coimbatore and its surrounding area. It pinpoints the best locations and number of stations needed, providing a practical roadmap for their implementation. Additionally, it assesses green building concepts that meet LEED standards. This study explores green building concepts meeting LEED standards, providing a transferable methodology for sustainable EV infrastructure development in Coimbatore and beyond.
