Though, the Indian auto industry is witnessing EV initiatives, the charging infrastructure still poses the biggest challenge in achieving Indian Govt’s Electric Vehicle Mission 2030. With Tata Motors bagging a Rs. 1120 Crore order from Energy Efficiency Services (EESL) under the administration of Ministry of Power, Government of India to supply 10,000 Tigor electric vehicles, India needs at least 100 charging stations along with the option of battery swapping facility. The roll out process of Charging Infrastructure should continue without any disruption.
The standardisation protocol for EV charging, as drafted by Ministry of Heavy Industries draws an outline of technical specifications in the form of Bharat EV Charger AC-001 and Bharat EV Charger DC-001. This draft describes the details of specifications for AC and DC chargers, including
the type of wires and cables needed
various buttons and displays required at the charging console
