NITI Aayog has taken an initiative to create charging infrastructure for electric vehicles in the country. NITI Aayog has released a handbook for guidance on creating charging infrastructure for electric vehicles in India. The handbook will empower states and local bodies to set up public charging networks.
This handbook will help the state governments and local bodies to frame policies towards setting up charging networks for electric vehicles by NITI Aayog. It aims to enhance the charging infrastructure and facilitate the rapid transition to electric mobility in the country. This handbook has been jointly prepared by NITI Aayog, Ministry of Power, Department of Science and Technology, Bureau of Energy Efficiency and World Resource Institute India to set up the basic charging infrastructure for electric vehicles.
Handbook focused on basic infrastructure and requirements
This handbook offers a systematic and holistic approach to the relevant authorities and other stakeholders involved in the planning, authorization and execution of electric vehicle charging infrastructure. It provides information about the technical and regulatory framework required to facilitate EV charging. It is focused on the current needs of development of basic infrastructure considering the emerging nature of EV sector.
The fight against climate change in the process of adopting electric mobility is a part of the global strategy on which India has expressed ambitious aspirations. Dr. Rajiv Kumar, Vice Chairman, NITI Aayog said, the handbook addresses the challenges faced by various local authorities in implementing EV charging network. It serves as a starting point for exchange of best practices between states and local bodies.
Rapid expansion of electronic vehicles in India
Amitabh Kant, CEO, NITI Aayog said, “The basic infrastructure of electronic vehicles in India is developing rapidly and many players are entering the charging infrastructure market. This handbook will empower public and private stakeholders to work together to set up a robust and accessible EV charging network.
EV charging is a new type of power demand for Power Distribution Companies (Discoms). These discoms play a vital role in providing uninterrupted power supply connections to the charging facilities and ensure that the power distribution network has the requisite capacity to meet this demand.
Ministry of Power Secretary Alok Kumar said, Ministry of Power and its central nodal agency for setting up of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles in India i.e. Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), discoms and states to remove the bottlenecks in charging infrastructure implementation Working closely with agencies, for which this handbook will be of great help. With the rapidly increasing share of renewable energy in the energy mix in the country, the benefits of the transition to e-mobility are expected to become more significant in the coming years.
