NITI Aayog proposes infrastructure of charging electric vehicles

New Delhi, Nov 10 (UNI) NITI Aayog Vice Chairman, Dr Rajiv Kumar has released a proposal to develop electric vehicle charging infrastructure in Delhi on Friday. The proposal was drafted by a software company AC2SG in collaboration with NITI Aayog.

The proposal for the quick pilot could be used to provide a structure for EV infrastructure rollout in the Gurgaon-IGI-South Delhi-Noida corridor. This planning will make the actual rollout easier and faster and also save cost on the deployment. The planning process is based on a five-step process; that is project kickoff, formation of long list of locations, streamlining and timing, documentation and wrap-up.

This proposal is for developing the pilot includes 55 locations with 135 charging stations of which 46 are DC quick charging stations and 89 are slower AC charging stations. This deployment would require co-operation with state governments, selected government authorities and companies as well as some private enterprises like DIAL at IGI, DLF Mall.

The plan includes a deployment timeline with first installations in November 2017.

The plan is implementable, it includes a large number of stations. Further expansion of this in Delhi, NCR and other cities in India is something to be considered based on the result and experience from this “Quick pilot Project”.
