According to the bank's website, "The proposed knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support promotion of clean energy usage through enhanced adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) and grid integration of battery energy storage systems (BESS)...
This TA will support activities that address the bottlenecks preventing scale up of EVs and BESS in India. By partnering with the government's central planning agency - NITI Aayog, power distribution companies, and other key players in the EV-renewable energy value chain; this Technical Assistance (TA) will undertake activities that can help meet the clean energy targets set by the Government of India. By pursuing BESS and EV development in a coordinated manner, the TA will facilitate identification of new investment opportunities across the value chains such as charging infrastructure, stationary storage (including repurposing of used EV batteries for second-life storage), vehicle-to-grid systems and services, storage-enabled power trading, etc..."

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
