RAISE Launch.jpg

New Delhi, 20 July, 2020:
With a focus on enhancing energy efficiency and promoting e-mobility, Shri R.K Singh, the Minister for Power, New & Renewable Energy, today inaugurated India’s first public EV (Electric Vehicle) charging plaza at Chelmsford Club in New Delhi. While speaking at the occasion Shri Singh said, “The EV charging plaza is a new avenue for making e-mobility ubiquitous and convenient in India. Such innovative initiatives are imperative for the creation of a robust e-mobility ecosystem in the country. My congratulations to both EESL and NDMC.”

EESL is spearheading the EV ecosystem development in India by undertaking demand aggregation for procuring EVs and identifying innovative business models for implementation of Public Charging Station (PCS). EESL in collaboration with NDMC has established India’s first of its kind public EV Charging Plaza in Central Delhi. This plaza will host 5 Electric Vehicle Chargers of different specifications.

Speaking on the inauguration of public EV plaza Shri Sanjiv Nandan Sahai, Secretary, Ministry of Power said, “The charging plaza, with its compatibility with a wide range of electric vehicles will greatly spur e-mobility adoption. This would make EV charging hassle free and convenient for the consumers, thereby making e-mobility adoption an attractive proposition.”

Union Power Minister Shri R K Singh also launched today “Retrofit of Air-conditioning to improve Indoor Air Quality for Safety and Efficiency” (RAISE) national programme. At the launch, Shri R.K Singh stated, “I believe the RAISE initiative can potentially alleviate the issue of bad air quality in workspaces across the nation and pioneer ways to make them healthier and greener. I look forward to the success of their programme and wish both EESL and USAID best of luck for their future endeavours.

At the launch of RAISE, Mr Javier Piedra, Deputy Assistant Administrator, Asia Bureau, USAID said, “We just concluded the U.S.-India Strategic Energy Partnership Ministerial last week with a very engaging dialogue and a forward-looking action plan. I’m happy that one of its key deliverables i.e. RAISE is being launched here by the Honorable Minister just two days after the SEP. USAID & EESL have been working together to transform markets for clean energy technologies and have jointly developed this integrated approach that benefits consumers and the industry, while ensuring energy savings and better health. The solutions for indoor air quality, energy efficiency, and healthy workspaces in response to COVID-19 are relevant worldwide and this pioneering initiative has immense potential to be emulated globally."

Poor air quality has been a concern in India for quite some time and has become more important in light of the COVID pandemic. As people return to their offices and public spaces, maintaining good indoor air quality is essential for occupant comfort, well-being, productivity, and the overall public health.

In that context, EESL has undertaken a retrofit of its office air-conditioning and ventilation system. This is a part of the larger initiative to “Retrofit of Air-conditioning to improve Indoor air quality for Safety and Efficiency” developed for healthy and energy efficient buildings, in partnership with U.S. Agency for International Development’s (USAID) MAITREE programme. EESL’s corporate office in Scope Complex has been taken up as a pilot for this initiative. The pilot focuses on improving indoor air quality (IAQ), thermal comfort, and energy efficiency (EE) in EESL office’s air conditioning system.

As per EESL, pilot project has shown very impressive results – about 80% improvement in Air Quality parameters with almost no implementation hassles. Considering employee’s occupational health and safety is paramount in any workplace amidst the COVID-19 scenario, EESL is keen to provide such solutions across the country with standardisation and demand aggregation approach.

Both the initiatives reaffirm the pledge for ecological preservation and building a resilient energy sector, undertaken by EESL and other key stakeholders during the “#iCommit” campaign held on World Environment Day.

Govt allows sale, registration of EVs without pre-fitted batteries

1562085946-0763.jpg

The government on Wednesday said it has allowed the sale and registration of electric vehicles without pre-fitted batteries, a move which will reduce the upfront cost of these vehicles.

The battery, which accounts for about 30-40 per cent of the total cost of EVs, can be provided separately by companies, it added.

"The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has allowed registration of electric vehicles without pre-fitted batteries. In a letter to Transport Secretaries of all the States and UTs, the ministry has clarified that vehicles without batteries can be sold and registered based on the type approval certificate issued by the Test Agency," the ministry said in a statement.

It said there is no need to specify the make/type or any other details of the battery for the purpose of registration.

However, the prototype of the electrical vehicle and the battery (regular or swappable) are required to be type-approved by the test agencies specified under Rule 126 of the Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989.

The advisory to principal secretaries and transport secretaries of states said the government is striving to create an ecosystem to accelerate the uptake of electric mobility in the country.

"It is time to come together to work jointly to achieve the broader national agenda to reduce vehicular pollution and oil import bill. This will not only protect the environment and reduce the oil import bill but also provide opportunities to sunrise industries," it said.

The ministry said for the promotion of electric vehicles, recommendations were brought to its notice to delink the cost of battery from the vehicle cost.

This will make the upfront cost of electric two- and three-wheelers lower than that of internal combustion engine (ICE) variants, it added.

"The battery could be provided separately by the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) or the energy service provider," it said.

We Indians have Toyota Camry, prius, etc., but

Why isn't that any automobile manufacturer is considering a launch of an affordable hybrid vehicle? I think the hybrid vehicles can make the people to get into the electric car segment more easily than compelling the customers to buy an electric vehicle. Still each and every automobile company has not set the charging stations in many areas, other than one or two. So it is still a question for a person who decides to buy an electric vehicle while touring in it, the charging station in that destination must be present otherwise it is just a blank question that "Is electric vehicles are meant to be driven only in and around city alone?".

So to go that extra mile first we Indians have to settle down for a hybrid vehicle then we will surely adopt to an electric vehicle by the time we adopt to a hybrid vehicle the automobile manufacturers will have time to set many charging stations across India.

Govt mulls installing EV charging kiosks at around 69,000 petrol pumps

The government is mulling setting up at least one electric vehicle (EV) charging kiosk each at nearly 69,000 petrol pumps across the country to induce people to go for electric mobility.

Besides, the government is also thinking of making it compulsory to install EV charging kiosks at all Company-Owned, Company-Operated (COCO) petrol pumps of state refiners.

In a review meeting on EV charging infrastructure, Power Minister R K Singh suggested oil ministry top officials that "they may issue an order for their oil marketing companies (OMCs) under their administrative control for setting up charging kiosks at all COCO petrol pumps", a source said.

Other franchisee petrol pump operators may also be advised to have at least one charging kiosk at their fuel stations, the source said adding this will help achieve "EV charging facility at all petrol pumps in the country".

Under the new guidelines of the oil ministry, new petrol pumps must have an option of one alternative fuel.

"Most of the new petrol pumps are opting for electric vehicle charging facility under alternative fuel option. But it will make huge difference when the existing petrol pumps would also install EV charging kiosks," the source said.

According to the industry estimates, there are around 69,000 petrol pumps in the country. The EV charging facility at all petrol pumps could boost e-mobility in a big way as lack of such infrastructure discourages people from buying EVs.

The power ministry has also chalked out a plan to focus on Delhi National Capital Region, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Vadodara and Bhopal for creating EV charging infrastructure in cities as well as on highways to encourage people to switch over to electric mobility.

The source said, "The minister is of the view that putting up two or three charging stations in any city would be a waste of funds. Besides, the central government is looking at complete electrification of public transport in Delhi, which can later be followed in other cities."

Earlier in July, the power ministry banned the import of equipment (power) from prior reference nations (China and Pakistan).

The power minister directed officials in the meeting that no chargers shall be imported from prior reference countries as specified by the Ministry of Power, the source added.

Earlier, the power ministry had also made testing mandatory for power equipment imported from prior reference nations to check for any kind of embedded malware or trojans or cyber threat and for adherence to Indian standards.

Telangana electric vehicle policy launched: Key highlights

The Telangana government, as part of its new policy to promote electric vehicles, offers 100 per cent exemption of road tax and registration fee for the first two lakh electric two-wheelers purchased and registered within the state, according to the State Electric Vehicle and Energy Storage Policy.
Telangana Ministers KT Rama Rao and Ajay Kumar on Friday launched the policy which will be effective from 2020 to 2030.

The policy also gives 100 per cent exemption on road tax and registration fee for electric tractors purchased and registered in the state as per the existing rules/guidelines applicable for tractors by the Transport Department, it said.

"To make Telangana a major base for EV and ESS (energy storage system) sectors and to attract investments worth USD 4.0 Billion and create employment for 120,000 persons by 2030 through EVs in shared mobility, charging infrastructure development and EV and ESS manufacturing activities," the policy said.

Generate demand for battery storage solutions by driving EV adoption incentives and supply side incentives for battery manufacturing, it said.

To proactively support creation of EV charging infrastructure in the initial phase and eventually create a market for commercially viable EV charging business.

The policy called for developing Telangana as a global centre for cutting-edge research and innovation in electric vehicles, battery technologies and other emerging technologies such as autonomous/connected vehicles.

The state government shall facilitate setting up of initial batch of fast charging stations in Hyderabad and other towns in a phased manner, by state entities and private players.

The government shall extend tailor-made benefits to mega and strategic projects on case to case basis.

Investment of more than ₹200 crore in plant and machinery or providing employment to more than 1,000 people shall be categorised as mega project, according to the policy.

"Telangana has come out with an extremely comprehensive policy. We also ensured that energy story policy is clubbed in with the EV policy because these two are tight- knit ideas which need to work cohesively...we have taken a pragmatic approach while designing this policy and consulted industry leaders," Rama Rao after unveiling the policy.

The government on Friday signed MoUs with five firms which are set to invest in the EV space.

I really hope govt and car manufacturers promote electric vehicles and look into its feasibility as soon as possible. And that should be accepted with both hands by the consumers as well as without their support we wont be able to enjoy the advantages it has to offer to the environment.
