Delhi’s First Grid-Connected Solar-Powered EV Charging Carport Inaugurated

A groundbreaking step towards sustainable urban mobility, the solar-powered carport at Hauz Khas Village offers fast EV charging, supporting Delhi’s green energy initiatives.

Servotech Power Systems Ltd., manufacturer of EV chargers and solar solutions, in collaboration with the National Solar Energy Federation of India (NSEFI), has inaugurated Delhi’s first grid-connected Solar-Powered EV Charging Carport at the Hauz Khas Village parking station. This initiative marks a significant milestone in sustainable energy and electric vehicle infrastructure.

The carport, established as a pilot project, was designed, manufactured, and commissioned by Servotech, which also implemented the overall infrastructure. The event saw Dr. Philipp Ackermann, German Ambassador to India and Bhutan, as the chief guest, along with notable attendees including Mr. Raman Bhatia, Founder and MD of Servotech Power Systems Limited, Mr. Amarjeet Singh, CEO of BSES Yamuna Power Limited, Mr. Chintan Shah, Principal Advisor at NSEFI, and Mr. Subrahmanyam Pulipaka, CEO of NSEFI.

This project is a result of a collaboration between NSEFI and the Bundesverband Solarwirtschaft e.V (BSW), in cooperation with BSES and the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD). It falls under the KVP project framework, supported by the German non-profit company Sequa GmbH as part of the Business Membership Organization Partnerships of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

The Solar-Powered EV Charging Carport introduces a new business model for DISCOMs and business operators, facilitating the replacement of last-mile delivery vehicles with an electric fleet. It enables fast charging for two and four-wheelers in under an hour, enhancing delivery efficiency in urban and confined areas.

Raman Bhatia, Founder and Managing Director of Servotech Power Systems Ltd., stated, “We are thrilled to inaugurate Delhi’s first solar-powered EV charging carport along with NSEFI, marking a significant step towards sustainable urban mobility for a greener future. The newly inaugurated solar carport exemplifies our efforts to reduce carbon emissions and enhance living conditions through sustainable technology. This initiative will prove to be beneficial in decarbonizing mobility and electricity through solar energy. The growth of India’s solar and energy storage sectors across various fronts is dynamic, and by integrating renewable energy solutions into our infrastructure, we not only address current environmental challenges but also pave the way for a cleaner, more sustainable future for all. Servotech stands for innovation and is committed to leading the charge in sustainable energy solutions, driving positive change for the environment and society.”
