BEL sets up a charging station near Pinjore on the Chandigarh-Shimla Highway. 

The Panchkula Unit of Bharat Electronics Ltd (BEL) is working towards meeting India’s global commitment to reduce carbon footprint and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, resulting in the reduction of fossil fuel imports. It has developed EV Slow and Fast Chargers and created EV charging infrastructure in cities and highways.

The facility set up at the HPCL Retail Outlet at Amravati Enclave near Pinjore on the Chandigarh-Shimla Highway was inaugurated by Mr Dinesh Kumar Batra, Chairman & Managing Director, BEL, along with Mr Debashis Chakravarty, Chief General Manager, HPCL, Mr Bhanu Prakash Srivastava, Director (Other Units), BEL, Mrs Prabha Goyal, GM (Panchkula), BEL, and other senior management members. The Ministry of Heavy Industries has now entrusted BEL with the task of setting up such charging infrastructure at four highways/expressways.

This charging station has two guns of 25 KW each of CCS-2 protocol. 

Mr Dinesh Kumar Batra, CMD, BEL, said “BEL is known to be an eco-friendly company. We have clean and green campuses at all our Units across the country. Renewable energy from BEL’s captive solar and wind power plants contributes to around 49.36 per cent of our total energy consumption. BEL is diversifying into many areas of non-defence and Energy Storage products are one area we are keenly focussing on. We fully endorse the Government’s green energy mission and the setting of this EV charging station is one more step in that direction.”

Mr Debashis Chakravarty, Chief General Manager, HPCL added, “HPCL is focused on the expansion of the business profile with greater presence in the clean energy segment. We are working towards making our retail outlets multi-fuel, so mobility solutions can be provided for whichever vehicles customers choose to drive. More than 1,100 EV charging stations have already been set up in our 20,000 plus outlets across India.”
