State-run Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Hindustan Petroleum Corporation to roll out an electric vehicle charging infrastructure across India, reports Inc42.

EESL and Hindustan Petroleum will plan, develop and install EV charging facilities at “suitable locations” throughout the country. The EV stops will be equipped to charge two, three, and four-wheeler vehicles.

“With the installation of public charging stations, the range anxiety of EV owners is expected to reduce, which will increase the adoption of electric mobility. This will also bring down automobile emissions, enabling a cleaner and greener environment, in turn, safeguarding the public from health risks,” said Hindustan Petroleum in a press statement.

“Increased access to charging infrastructure is vital for the uptake of electric mobility across the entire EV ecosystem of two, three, and four-wheelers. Our partnership with HPCL will also establish more visibility of charging infrastructure, sending a signal to the general public that India’s electric mobility vision is being realised in full potential,” added EESL’s managing director, Saurabh Kumar.

EESL recently opened the first EV public charging station in South Delhi, in partnership with South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) - the first one out of the 75 charging points the authorities are planning to install in Delhi.
