1. Maharashtra to get subsidy up to Rs 1 Lakh for Battery operated EV





In a bid to encourage electric vehicles in the state, the Maharashtra government is reportedly offering subsidies of up to Rs. 1 Lakh on their purchase. According to ET buyers can get subsidies of Rs 5,000, Rs 12,000 and Rs 1 lakh on new two-, three- and four-wheelers, respectively.

The state government is also encouraging establishment of electric vehicle charging stations in the state offering incentive of up to Rs 10 lakh. These EV charging stations will have to be set up in public and private parking lots, fuel pumps, bus stops or railway stations. One can register for subsidies online. The vehicle incentivised cannot be sold outside the stat for a minimum of five years from the date of registration.

An official from the industries department speaking to the publication on condition of anonymity said “Electric vehicles are the transport mode of the future as they are environment-friendly. Few automobile companies have rolled out electric vehicles. Hence the government decided to offer subsidies.” Last year only the state government opened the automobile market to battery-operated vehicles. A pilot project of electric autorickshaws was also launched in the same year in Nagpur, which received a good response.

According to the rules, “only new battery-operated electric vehicles sold and registered in Maharashtra will be offered incentives. Individual buyers will be eligible for incentives only once in each category, that is, two-, three- and four-wheelers during the policy period.” The biggest barriers for EV adoption is the charging time and availability of charging stations, it will be interesting to see if the people in the state readily embraces the new automotive tech after the subsidy from the state government .



2. India could achieve high penetration of EV by 2030: Niti Aayog Report




India could achieve high penetration of electric vehicles (EV) by 2030 on the back of success of FAME II and other measures, according to a Niti Aayog report. The penetration of EV vehicles could reach around 80 per cent in case of two-wheelers and 30 per cent for private cars, the report -- India's Electric Mobility Transformation: Progress to Date and Future Opportunities -- by the Niti Aayog and the Rocky Mountain Institute.

The report quantifies direct oil and carbon savings that vehicles incentivised under the FAME II would deliver. "According to the analysis, if FAME II and other measures - in public and private space - are successful, India could realise EV sales penetration of 30 per cent of private cars, 70 per cent of commercial cars, 40 per cent of buses and 80 per cent of two and three-wheelers by 2030," the report said. Extrapolating from the same, it added that the lifetime cumulative ..

"Vehicles eligible under FAME II scheme can cumulatively save 5.4 million tonnes of oil equivalent over their lifetime worth Rs 17.2 thousand crores," it said. The report suggested that the government should focus on a phased manufacturing plan to promote EVs, provide fiscal and non fiscal incentives for phased manufacturing of EVs and batteries The report also suggested different government departments consider a bouquet of potential policies, such as congestion pricing, ZEV ..


3. No License Required For Ev Charging Infrastructure: Power Ministry


The ministry issued the clarification to douse speculation over whether the activity of EV charging through batteries falls under sale and purchase of power,citing provisions of the Electricity Act 2003.



New Delhi: Companies setting up charging infrastructure for electric vehicles do not require any separate license for electricity transmission, distribution or trading, the power ministry has said in a clarification. The ministry issued the clarification to douse speculation over whether the activity of EV charging through batteries falls under sale and purchase of power, citing provisions of the Electricity Act 2003. Section 2 of the Electricity Act defines a consumer as any person who is supplied with electricity for his own use and includes any persons whose premises are for the time being connected for the purpose of receiving electricity whereas trading is defined as procurement of electricity for resale thereof.

The charging of battery essentially involves utilization of electrical energy for its conversion to chemical energy, which gets stored in the battery. Thus, the charging of the battery of an electric vehicle by a charging station involves a service requiring consumption of electricity by the charging station and earning revenue for this purpose from the owner of the vehicle, the ministry said. It added that the activity does not in any way include the sale of electricity to any person as the electricity is consumed within the premises owned by the charging station, which may be connected to the distribution system or otherwise for receiving electricity. By the same logic, the activity does not involve further distribution or transmission of electricity.

"It is clarified that during the activity of charging of battery for use in electric vehicle, the charging station does not perform any of the activities namely transmission, distribution or trading of electricity, which require licence under the provisions of the Act, hence the charging of batteries of electric vehicles through charging station does not require any licence under the provisions of the Electricity Act, 2003," the statement said. The Electricity Act, 2003 was brought into force with effect from 10th June 2003, which as per section 12 requires a license to be obtained for the activities of transmission, distribution or trading in electricity. Recently, the issue of charging of batteries of electric vehicles has been deliberated at various forums as to whether or not charging stations would be required to obtain a license under the Act, the ministry said. The matter has been examined in detail in consultation with various stakeholders including Central Electricity Authority.


4. Centre proposes charging points for electric vehicles every 3 km

To initiate the process to set up charging stations at various locations in identified cities, public sector undertakings in the energy sector like NTPC, Power Grid Corp and Indian Oil are likely to come onboard.


The Central government has reportedly proposed to install charging stations for electric vehicles in big cities. These stations would be put at every 3 km in cities with population over a million and every 50 km on busy national highways. According to a report in The Economic Times, a senior government official said that in the next 3 years a phase-wise construction of infrastructure would be required, which would mean putting up 30,000 slow-charging and 15,000 fast-charging stations. The official said at least two high-charge points and one fast-charge point should be there at every three kilometres in cities. Also, there should be electric vehicle station every 50 km on highways. Those who would like to set up the infrastructure would also get fiscal incentives from municipal authorities along with land facilitation. For the allotment of land for the charging station building project, government would provide it to the companies that wish to install stations, the report said. To initiate the process to set up charging stations at various locations in identified cities, public sector undertakings in the energy sector like NTPC, Power Grid Corp and Indian Oil are likely to come onboard, it added.

NTPC is already involved in the set up of such projects in Maharashtra while Power Grid Corp last week said it signed an agreement with L&T Metro Rail (Hyderabad) Ltd to develop charging infrastructure in Hyderabad at metro stations for e-cars and ethree wheelers. Maruti Suzuki chairman, R C Bhargava had earlier said that Maruti was planning to build electric cars but that the government still did not have a roadmap to achieve its target to electrify all new vehicles by 2030. He had said that sales of electric cars in India still remained negligible as the cost of batteries were very high which made the vehicles expensive for many customers. Lack of infrastructure, he had said, was also the reason for the scenario. Nitin Gadkari, the minister for road transport and highways was the first person to first flaunt the idea of having electric vehicles to account for 100 per cent of all new sales by 2030. But in February, Gadkari said there was no need for a policy on EVs despite vouching for it over the past one year. The Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers in December last year came up with a white paper that stated electric vehicles will constitute 40 per cent for the overall new car sales by 2030. The apex carmakers' body had predicted a 100 per cent electric vehicle sales by 2047. Govt proposes installation of charging stations at every 3 Km in cities to boost EV sales: report

5. Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Business Models for India

In 2016, on the request of ISGF, Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) setup ETD 51 Committee for preparing the Indian Standards for EVSE. The EVs need to be connected to the electric grid for charging the battery and hence must comply with electricity grid code like other electrical equipment. Characteristics of the Indian power system is similar to that of Europe – 230V and 50Hz (unlike America: 110V and 60Hz) and we follow IEC standards. ETD 51 Committee with participation of all stakeholders had extensive deliberations and have finalized on following standards:
