Under the terms outlined in the Memorandum of Understanding, SDMC and EESL shall jointly work to fast-track the adoption of e-mobility in Delhi by installing around 75 public charging stations in South Delhi Municipal Corporation Area.

Speaking at the ceremony, Minister of Power and New & Renewable Energy, R.K Singh said, “This initiative is part of Government's vision to reduce carbon footprints. We will grow, but responsibly, he added elaborating efforts to achieve the target of 175 GW renewable energy capacity by 2022 and having 40% as RE capacity in total installed energy capacity by 2030. The Minister also said that government has taken a number of steps to promote environment friendly electric vehicles including revision in Electric Vehicle Charging Policy.”

The Government of India has embarked upon a very ambitious e-mobility plan, one in which the government plays a pivotal role in enabling e-mobility. Installation of public charging stations (PCS) would help in taking considerable strides in the creation of a sustainable EV ecosystem in the states across India. It's a great stride by SDMC and EESL to come together for harnessing synergies and opportunities in this broader effort.

The procurement of charging units, procurement of related infrastructure shall be borne by EESL along with the operation & maintenance of public charging infrastructure by qualified manpower, whereas, SDMC would be responsible for provision of space for setting up charging infrastructure in its area.

In the first phase, EV charging station will be installed in 18 locations within 6 months from the effective date, selected through joint survey by both parties. The total number of finalised locations as per the location assessment will be 75 which may increase/decrease and include multi-level parking locations in Delhi as well.

Installation of public charging stations would help these legislative efforts in creating a sustainable EV ecosystem in the states. With installation of public charging stations, the range anxiety among residents is expected to reduce, which would help in increasing the adoption of EVs in the city. This would help meet the state level targets of increasing EV adoption. With increasing penetration of EVs, the local emission of pollutants is also expected to reduce, leading to cleaner air providing several health benefits to the public.

For charging e-cars, till date, 300 AC & 170 DC captive chargers have been commissioned. Apart from this, 65 public charging stations have also been installed in NDMC area. EESL has signed agreements with various PSUs, Government departments, State Governments of Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Telangana.

With the bulk procurement, EESL receives electric vehicles and electric chargers at a significantly discounted rate vis-à-vis the actual market value. Further, with access to low cost funds, the overall cost of project becomes competitive. With this, EESL has established a sustainable business model which is affordable for end consumers.
