Statement from Fortum India on the EV Policy
Mr. Awadhesh Kumar Jha Vice President – Charge & Drive & Sustainability, Fortum India said, “This is one of the most concrete EV Policies which has been envisaged by any State Government. It has set a clear target and means to achieve the same. Setting up charging hub through the aid of private sector is a welcome move. While the draft policy addresses the need of parking space, we would also like the government to give provisions for upgraded electricity infrastructure at identified location to create plug & play. This move in turn will reduce risk of private players substantially.”
