While these electric vehicle (EV) charging facilities will mainly come up at CNG and petrol pumps, 33 are planned for Metro Stations as well, in addition to one each in the parking area at Indira Gandhi International Airport and Jamia Millia. These are likely to become operational within three months.
The independent solar power producer commissioned over 250 MW in the current quarter alone, which is among the highest installations by a company in this period. With this, its total operational portfolio in India is now over 1,400 MW.
Finnish clean-energy company Fortum, in cooperation with US-based inductive charging specialist Momentum Dynamics, will install induction-based infrastructure to allow for wireless charging up to 75 kilowatts.
Mumbai-based Waaree Energies has solar PV module manufacturing capacity of 1.5 GW—claimed to be the largest in India. At a time when the company is expanding to newer markets with customized solar modules for electric vehicles, Sunil Rathi, Director, Waaree Energies spoke to pv magazine about manufacturing in the current duty regime.
The high efficiency series can be used in multiple application scenarios like utility-scale ground-mount and distributed PV projects. An increase in the output of modules from 370W to 415W will help reduce the balance-of-system cost by 4.5% to 8.5%, and reduce levelized cost of electricity (LCoE) by 2.5% to 4.6%.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo will use the amount for installation of three solar PV power projects with a total capacity of 35 MW in the three provinces of Karawa, Mbandaka and Lusambo.
Designed to be portable and flexible, the modules are ideal for electric vehicles to support energy requirements of auxiliary functions like refrigeration—increasing the efficiency by 10-15%.
Amtronics CC has paid U.S. firm Quantum Materials Corp an initial $500,000 as part of an agreement securing the right to manufacture quantum dots and thin-film quantum dot solar cells based on QMC technology for commercial supply in India. Construction has already started on a manufacturing facility in Assam, which will produce solar cells via a continuous, rapid-feed, flexographic-based printing process.
Under this MoU, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) would transfer the technology to Tata Chemicals so that it may manufacture lithium-ion cells of varying capacity, size, energy density and power density—catering to a wide spectrum of power storage requirements.
With the current equity investment, Avaada—which has secured power purchase agreements of about 1,700 MW—is well funded to exceed capacity of 2 GW.
