The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) has developed a solar photovoltaic powered electric vehicle (EV) charging station in Bengaluru.
As per an official statement the zero-emission EV charging station powered by solar cells has been designed and developed at the sustainable transportation lab by the UK-based Greenencho Ltd under the Innovating for Clean Air (IfCA) program of the Energy System Catapult, UK.
The project was taken up under the Indo-UK collaboration to fight against climate change. The custom-made off-grid system comprises a solar photovoltaic (PV) module, hybrid inverter, battery storage and an EV charger.
The charging point is located at the JRD Tata Memorial library on the campus, with solar panels on the library’s rooftop. The lab was set up to contribute to research and teaching in transportation systems engineering (TSE).
The areas of interest of the lab includes sustainable transportation planning and policy, integrated public transport and management, quality of life and climate change.
