Convergence Energy Services Limited (CESL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), announced it has signed an agreement with Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd (HPCL) for setting up charging infrastructure in selected retail outlets in several cities across the country.
Spanning 10 years, the agreement entails CESL and HPCL to jointly undertake setting up of EV charging points in many cities including Mumbai, Delhi NCR, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Chennai, Kolkata and Pune.
“This agreement is a part of our endeavor to help India achieve its EMobility mission, and to decarbonize the transport sector in totality,” Mahua Acharya, MD &CEO, CESL, said. The charging points will have one or more types of chargers with fast, slow, or moderate speed capacity.
They will be operated through an application of CESL which will facilitate better control and monitoring of all charging stations. Under the pact, CESL and HPCL will also identify major highways across India where adequate charging infrastructure can be installed and established.
