EESL, a joint venture of PSUs under the Ministry of Power, Government of India, has signed an agreement with the NOIDA (New Okhla Industrial Development Authority) to promote electric vehicles (EV) and install public EV charging stations & related infrastructure.
The partnership will also facilitate the creation of an infrastructural ecosystem to accelerate e-mobility uptake.
EESL will make the entire upfront investment on services pertaining to the MoU along with the operation and maintenance of public charging infrastructure by qualified manpower.
NOIDA would be responsible for provision of space, and requisite power connection for the charging infrastructure. The initiative is estimated to save over 4.04 tonnes of CO2 emissions per e-car per year.
Under EESL’s EV program, it has completed the tender processes to procure 10,000 e-cars.
Till date, 1,510 e-cars have been deployed across the country and are under registration/allocation. For charging e-cars, 295 AC and 161 DC chargers have also been commissioned.
EESL has signed agreements with various PSUs, government departments, and states including Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, and Telangana.
Developing a sustainable landscape with strong supporting EV infrastructure is the key to cultivating consumer confidence in electric vehicles.
