The fossil fuel giant announced the plan in its latest annual results. The company envisages rolling out electric vehicle chargers at its petrol and diesel stations.
The charging stations will come up in Ernakulam, Kozhikode and Thiruvananthapuram districts of the state, mostly on Kerala State Electricity Board or government land. The last date for submission of expression of interest is October 4.
Of these, 5095 e-buses have been allocated to 64 cities for intracity operation, 400 for inter-city operation and 100 for last-mile connectivity to Delhi Metro Rail Corporation.
Jointly organised by India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA) and The International Centre for Automotive Technology (ICAT), the conclave on EV and charging infrastructure will take place on August 9, 2019 at ICAT’s Manesar Campus in Gurugram with over a hundred participating companies.
The charging stations—to be installed in five metro cities—will come up at strategic locations frequented by potential electric vehicle owners such as Tata Motors dealerships, certain Tata Group retail outlets and other public locations.
Energy Efficiency Services Limited will provide the funding with authorities in the planned city offering up sites and electricity connections under an agreement announced yesterday.
The charging stations should preferably be connected with grid-connected solar power plants of required capacity as per MNRE guidelines. The deadline for submission of the proposals is August 20.
The Mumbai-headquartered rural banking services provider will set up the electric vehicle charging infrastructure across its huge network of Nextgen outlets, which it plans to increase from current 3504 to 300,000 by FY 2024-25.
