With the increase of Electrical Vehicles in India, there has been a rapid growth of EV Charging Stations as well, especially in New Delhi.
As part of the government's efforts to transform India into an electric vehicle nation by 2030, Federal Minister of Transport Mr. Nitin Gadkari announced the installation of electronic charging kiosk infrastructure at approximately 69,000 gas stations across India.
SETTING UP OF EV CHARGING STATIONS IN INDIA
Many measures have been taken to promote electric vehicles, such as reducing the goods and services tax to 5%. Other measures such as separating the cost of 2-3 rounds of batteries from the cost of the car have also been taken as this is 30% of the cost. To pay tribute to companies such as NTPC, EESL, and REIL, they installed 2,600 EV charging stations. At the meeting, Mr. Gadkari emphasized the importance of developing flexible engines that can use gasoline or ethanol/compressed natural gas as fuel.
After being fully charged, an electric car with a 30kWh battery can easily be used for two to three days in normal use and standby mode. Currently, the charging infrastructure of electric vehicles can be divided into two categories: slow chargers (3-4kW) and fast chargers (50-100 kW). Volttic’s Mr. Varun Chaturvedi addressed this concern by saying: On average, public charging stations require nearly 100kW. If we target 50 EV chargers, we will need nearly 20,000EV charging stations, up to 2,000 MW.
