Bharat Heavy Electricals is setting up a network of solar-based electric vehicle chargers (SEVC) on the Delhi-Chandigarh Highway in India to help alleviate range anxiety for drivers.
The company says the SEVC chargers are being set-up over the 350km stretch between Delhi and Chandigarh to bolster confidence for using EVs for inter-city travel.
Each SEVC station will be equipped with a rooftop solar power plant to supply green energy and EV chargers, the company adds.
As part of the project, Bharat has also developed a central monitoring system for EV chargers along with a user mobile app.
This project is part of the Department of Heavy Industry’s FAME (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles in India) which seeks to promote the development of the technology.
