Exicom installs AC & DC electric vehicle charging station in New Delhi

Exicom installed AC and DC electric vehicle 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 Indian government has already set the deadline to move to electric by 2030. The government has already announced 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 recently 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.

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.”
