Power PSUs’ joint venture EESL plans to install at least 500 more electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in the country during fiscal 2020-21. The joint venture of PSUs under the Ministry of Power, the Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) has undertaken the project to boost the e-mobility ecosystem in India.
In a conversation with IANS, EESL Managing Director Rajat Sud informed that close to 207 charging stations have already been installed across India.
“The beginning of the financial year was difficult as the country was dealing with the Coronavirus and its related lockdowns. EESL’s suppliers have also been facing shortages of components and labour during the lockdown that extended up till May-end,” he said.
“With the supply resumed from the manufacturers and opening up of transport, EESL is striding towards installing at least 500 chargers by the end of the financial year. During the year, EESL has also completed an additional procurement of 1020 chargers.”
