IRADe will co-host this session with LAYA.
2. Climate Adaptive Heat Stress Action Plans for Vulnerable Communities, 10 Nov 2022 (14:00-15:00), India Pavilion, Sharm El Sheikh International Convention Centre (SHICC):

The project is supported by IDRC and APN.
3. Electric Vehicles: Charging Patterns and Impacts on DISCOMS, 10-12 Nov 2022, Booth No. 46, Sharm El Sheikh International Convention Centre (SHICC)
IRADe developed an EV load calculator for DISCOMS to understand patterns of electricity load & charging demand until 2030. It also indicates the annual energy needed by EVs matching their charging behaviour with typical hourly load curves for all seasons. The project was supported by Shakti Foundation.
