TS power utilities to set up dependable charging infra for EVs

Hyderabad, Sept 18 (UNI) In a fight against climate change, Telangana State power utilities are gearing up to establish a dependable charging infrastructure for electric vehicles (EVs) in the near future, Chairman and Managing Director of Transmission Corporation of Telangana Limited (TSTRANSCO) and Telangana State Power Generation Corporation Limited (TSGENCO) said here on Wednesday.
Addressing at the 20th CII National Award for Excellence in Energy Management 2019 here, D Prabhakar Rao congratulated the winners and participants of the award programme for coming up with innovative energy conservation measures.
"Today climate change is one of the most major concerns for world industry," he said the Telangana solar power policy, incorporated in 2015, is consistently enabling the development of solar power projects in the country.
TSGENCO has taken up a big role and distributed LED bulbs among consumers, and replaced 4 lakh street lights with energy saving LED lights, he informed.

"TS distribution companies are also working on demand-side management measures with the support of CII and BEE. In order to enable sustainable development," he added.
Mr Rene Van Berkel, regional representative for the United Nations International Development Organisation (UNIDO) said that more work needs to be done to de-risk energy efficiency measures, as it can be quite difficult for small businesses to adopt energy efficiency technologies and techniques.

"Finance is not necessarily the only problem, as cost of technologies can be a barrier for many small businesses, he said we need to be more involved in piloting new technologies that are marketable, scalable, and cost-competitive," he said.
