On Monday, September 9 from noon - 1 p.m., Abhijith Neerkaje — program manager at SanDisk — and Sergey Naumov — MIT System Design and Management alumnus and doctoral student at the MIT Sloan School of Management — will host a webinar on "Systems Dynamics-Based Strategies for Introducing Alternative Fuel Vehicles in India."
The event is free and open to all. (Register here)
In India as in many countries, the internal combustion engine is the dominant vehicle power train. This has resulted in significant tailpipe emissions in congested cities.
In 2013, the Indian government unveiled a plan to promote alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) sales in a coordinated manner. Although many similar programs have been tried previously, the creation of sustainable AFV markets has remained a challenge. This webinar will outline how a multiplatform systems dynamics model can be used to explore the dynamics of adopting AFVs in India.
