According to a report by PTI, Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) and SDMC have signed an agreement to develop charging infrastructure for electric vehicles in South Delhi Municipal Corporation Area.

Minister of Power and New and Renewable Energy R K Singh informed that India has embarked upon a very ambitious e-mobility plan, in which the government plays a pivotal role in enabling e-mobility.

He added that the 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 MoU was signed in the presence of Singh, EESL MD Saurabh Kumar, Lt Governor of Delhi Anil Baijal, Municipal Commissioner of SDMC Gyanesh Bharti, among other government officials.

Kumar stated that under the MoU, EESL will install around 75 charging stations at different locations of the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) area. He added that in the first phase, the EV charging station will be installed in 18 locations within 6 months from the effective date, selected through a joint survey by both parties.

Baijal added that it is pivotal to establish a thriving public charging infrastructure to increase EV adoption and enhance consumer convenience. I strongly believe that a supporting infrastructure will surely enhance consumer confidence in electric vehicles in Delhi.

EESL also informed that about 65 public charging stations have also been installed in the area of NDMC with which it had signed an MoU earlier.
