Listen to this article

NEW DELHI: A subsidiary of Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL), CESL has discovered prices for setting up 810 electric vehicle charging stations along 16 expressways and National Highways covering 10,275 km across India.

The corridors include busy routes, such as the Mumbai-Pune highway, Ahmedabad-Vadodara Highway, Eastern Peripheral Expressway, Delhi-Agra Yamuna Expressway, Hyderabad ORR Expressway, and the Agra-Nagpur Highway, the company said.

As an industry first, CESL, which is under the ministry of power, is using a service procurement model to set up the charging stations along with private sector participation to build India’s electric mobility ecosystem. The charging stations are expected to be built within the next 6-8 months.

Under the public-private-partnership model, CESL will partner companies to invest in and operate the charging stations along the expressways and highways.

The initiative will encourage EV owners to plan long-haul journeys and will create the infrastructure for setting up other ancillary services.
