Lithium-ion phosphate batteries are making a comeback. Thanks to high nickel prices and limited feedstock supply, the EV industry is driving this change. There is no need to fret about the onset of slightly lower energy density, though, as this development has some benefits for the stationary storage market.
India is set to see the largest increase in energy demand of any country over next 20 years, a new International Energy Agency (IEA) report says, highlighting potential for policies and investment to accelerate clean energy transition.
SUN Mobility, a leading provider of electric mobility solutions and services, has announced its plan to roll out 100 battery swapping stations, called Swap Point, in Bengaluru by the end of 2021.
The public EV charging station is available to all vehicles compatible with CCS/ CHAdeMO fast-charging standards, and can charge the MG ZS electric vehicle up to 80% in 50 minutes.
The public sector energy company has opened a compact reformer plant at Delhi Transport Corporation’s Rajghat bus depot. The facility will produce hydrogen-enriched compressed natural gas as a bus fuel. A trial period will see 50 gas-powered buses run on the blended fuel with fuel economy and emissions monitored.
The government is trying to harness renewables to increase domestic output but will need a more liberal energy market and to consider the structure of procurement auctions, cloying red tape and the financial travails of state utilities if it is to achieve its goals, says Rakshika Kaul of Amp Energy India.
The developer will commission a 335 kWp ‘carport-style’ solar plant for Apollo Gleneagles Hospital in Kolkata city, West Bengal. It is estimated the plant will generate around 426 MWh of electricity for the hospital per year and reduce annual carbon emissions by 80kg.
Faced with raw material and labor shortages, solar manufacturers have stressed the need to find alternative supply chains and to push automation and internet of things applications on the factory floor to keep production running.
Petroleum and natural gas minister Dharmendra Pradhan said India had received proposals for more than 10 GW of solar equipment manufacturing capacity under the Atma Nirbhar Bharat Abhiyaan mission announced by Narendra Modi.
The program aims at supporting the development of innovative electric vehicle (EV) solutions like extending range through battery capacity improvements, and battery management, fast charging infrastructure, and mobile charging solutions for emergencies. Two startups shall be supported each year with up to INR 80 lakh each to complete proof of concept and develop prototypes.
