Auto Expo 2023: Tata Power to roll out 25,000 EV charging stations in India over next five years
Tata Power, the leading provider of electric vehicle charging solutions, announced on Friday that it has launched a nationwide plan to set up 25,000 electric vehicle (EV) charging points across the country to drive faster adoption of electric mobility over the next five years.
The company is showcasing its range of high-tech electric vehicle charging solutions at the ongoing Auto Expo 2023 in Greater Noida.
First-hand experience of the technology that drives Tata Power’s extensive EV charging network – EZ Charge – was provided to visitors, including one of the most downloaded mobile apps for EV charging – Tata Power EZ Charge, according to a company statement.
The app helps commuters find the nearest charging station, know the real-time availability of charging points and receive charging status updates, among other things, Tata Power said.
The company also said information about its network operations center (NOC) was exposed. The Center assists in the efficient operational management of charging stations across India.
Through its widespread presence in the electric vehicle charging space, the company said it provides more than 3,600 public or semi-public chargers and more than 23,500 residential chargers. Tata Motors said many of these charging stations were also equipped with fast-charging technology and located at various strategic locations, such as shopping malls, hotels, airports and office complexes.
NOC is integrated with the online platform that supports Tata Power’s EZ Charge services, has a real-time communication link with all on-board chargers and helps in the early detection of technology-related issues. The NOC also supports rapid problem resolution, back-end system support, and proactive scheduling of charging infrastructure maintenance.
Tata Power also said it was at the forefront of delivering electric vehicle charging solutions to every nook and cranny of the country, with charging solutions for homes, workplaces, stations fleet, public places and commercial junctions such as electric bus charging depots.
Virendra Goyal, Business Development Manager, Electric Vehicle Charging, Tata Power, said: “The demand for electric vehicles is growing steadily in India, so having a strong pan-India charging network is important.
He said the company is excited to showcase products and technologies that make Tata Power India the leading provider of electric vehicle charging solutions. “We remain committed to playing a leading role in helping Indian consumers envision sustainable mobility in the future,” he added.
According to Tata Power, its electric vehicle charging initiatives are in line with the government’s National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP), which aims to develop electric vehicle charging infrastructure using the latest technology platform as well as a easy access to charging points for electric vehicles.
In addition to a strong network in the National Capital Region of Delhi, Tata Power’s electric vehicle charging network is spreading widely, with a presence in Mumbai, Goa, Surat, Chandigarh, Hyderabad, Pune and Bengaluru, among others, he added.
