Webinar Date: 30/09/2021
Webinar Time: 4.00 PM to 5.30 PM IST

INTRODUCTION

As per FAME II, out of the total corpus amounting to 8595 Cr, Rs 3,545 crore ($500 million) or about 41% is allocated to subsidise the purchase of 5,595 Electric buses for various state transport undertakings (STUs). That's 7X the budget allocation and 5,175 more buses than those sanctioned under FAME I. In FY20, 3400+ Electric Cars and 600 Electric Buses were sold in India. EVs are on the fast-track. No doubt, the Charging infrastructure is the backbone of EVs. But safety and poor Power Quality issues are the speed breakers that could break this backbone. With the high cost of Charging Stations, Power Quality concerns will define the safety, reliability and sustainability of EV infrastructure and therefore be crucial to the speed at which India can reach its EV ambitions. This Webinar highlighted the issues that must be addressed as India steps-up its charging infrastructure by a multi-fold.

  • Focus on fundamentals of EV Charging – design, component sourcing, installation and maintenance for good PQ
  • Key Power Quality concerns for reliable Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure
  • Importance of PQ monitoring to mitigate risks to reliability and safety of EV Charging Stations
  • The evolving global standards for EV Charging Stations
  • Solutions for mitigating the PQ issues in EV Charging Infrastructure
  • The future of EV charging stations

The Webinar also touched upon several other related issues for that must be considered by suppliers and manufacturers of EV Charging Stations.
