The Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay) and the state-owned Convergence Energy Services Ltd (CESL) have signed an agreement of association to deploy electric vehicle charging infrastructure across the country, according to a story in the PTI newspaper. CESL’s CEO and president, Dr. Mahua Acharya, and IIT-B associate dean of Research and Development, Professor AM Pradeep, signed the letter.
The two companies will collaborate on electric vehicle charging technologies to develop flagship goods, standardization of technical criteria, customized solutions for the Indian EV charging ecosystem, and solutions to meet EV charging capabilities through this partnership.
According to Mahua Acharya, the institute’s partnership will significantly impact the technological advancement of electric vehicle charging infrastructure. For consumers, confidence in electric vehicles can only be fostered by creating an electric vehicle landscape with a robust infrastructure. “CESL is happy to be progressively spearheading activities to promote electric mobility in India,” she stated. Providing clean, reliable, and economical energy is also CESL’s primary goal.
By working together, the two institutions will be able to promote and support efforts to reduce carbon emissions in transportation according to the country’s international and domestic commitments.
India has entered the electric vehicle market, and the government is encouraging companies to develop technology that will make electric vehicles more accessible to the general public. State governments have also developed their EV policies, including various subsidies, and are pushing people to use electric vehicles. The Delhi government will produce an official manual to encourage workplace charging of electric cars (EVs) on November 29.
