State-owned Convergence Energy Services Ltd (CESL) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) for the installation of charging and battery swapping stations at its seven terminals and depots.

CESL will establish these facilities at Dwarka sector-8, Dwarka sector 2 depots, Mehrauli Terminal, Nehru Place Terminal, Okhla CW-II, Sukhdev Vihar depot and Kalkaji depot in four months. The facilities being developed at DTC premises will be open for public use.

Each of the seven locations will have a total of six charging points including three for two and three-wheelers and the other three for four-wheelers.

Once installed, these locations with their real-time status and availability of charging points will also be available on the ONE DELHI app of the city government, the Transport Ministry said in a statement.

Through this, CESL will also reduce carbon footprint and wherever feasible, will integrate solar rooftop and battery storage system (BSS) with the installation of charging infrastructure, to use renewable energy to power the charging stations.

Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot, who was present at the signing of MoU, said that Delhi is leading the way in the country’s transition to electric vehicle under the leadership of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

“With partnership with CESL, we are happy to say that the government is taking the lead in using our land and depots to increase and improve the charging infrastructure and EV ecosystem in Delhi. We are also exploring various non-polluting means to power these charging stations to effectively decrease the Carbon footprint,” he said.

As per the signed MoU, EESL through its subsidiary CESL has agreed to procure, install, operate and maintain charging units and related infrastructure at the location of the DTC area at its costs and expenses, said the statement.

The charges for usage of location will be paid by CESL to DTC every month at the rate of one rupee per kWh of energy dispensed. If the space required by the concessionaire is more than 3 ECS (Equivalent Car Space) then Rs 2,000 extra would be levied per ECS per month, it said.
