Exicom has installed AC & DC electric vehicle (EV) charging station at Ministry of Power office in Shram Shakti Bhawan, New Delhi. It is part of the plan to develop EV charging points across the country.
The Government of India has already set the deadline to move to electric by 2030 and their intentions to move to alternate fuels or electric cars to cut emissions and the step will help reduce pollution in the country. In continuation of their initiatives in this direction, the Ministry of Power launched the National E-Mobility Programme in India.
The objective of the National E-Mobility Programme is to provide an impetus to the entire e-mobility ecosystem including vehicle manufacturers, charging infrastructure, companies, fleet operators, service providers etc.
EESL will aggregate demand by procuring electric vehicles in bulk to get economies of scale. These electric vehicles will replace the existing fleet of petrol and diesel vehicles.
Speaking on the occasion, R K Singh said, “After the successful tender of 10000 electric cars last year, the demand for e-vehicle constantly rising across various departments of the Union and state governments. To cater to the growing demand, EESL will issue a fresh tender tomorrow for procuring additional 10000 electric cars. This second tender is testimony to the fact that India offers a huge market potential for e-mobility”
Anant Nahata, Managing Director of Exicom said, “We are very happy to take part in the EV movement and take pride to work for India’s vision of achieving 100% EV by 2030. We are progressively looking to expand and strengthen the charging infrastructure for electric vehicles with intent to popularize and promote clean transportation.”
