Overview Regarding the Charging Station Business
Growth in Industrialisation and urbanisation has resulted in arapid depletion of natural resources, especially fossil fuels, and the worst culprit of this is the increased use of motorised transportation, which not only uses fossil fuels to operate but also cause severe depletion of the ozone layer by its emission ultimately resulting in the greenhouse effect. As per the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, if the temperature of the global surface has risen more than 2 degrees Celsius, compared with the pre-industrial levels, the world will witness permanent disastrous climate change.
According to GNCTD figures, the overall number of vehicles in Delhi exceeds the total number of vehicles in Mumbai, Chennai, and Kolkata combined. In comparison to the national average of 8 automobiles per 1000 people, Delhi has 85 private cars per 1000 people. Delhi emits around 12.4 million tonnes of CO2 owing to motor vehicles, while Bengaluru emits approximately 8.6 million tonnes.
Therefore to address this issue of increasing greenhouse effect, India being the signatory to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, is encouraging the shift to Electric Vehicles as an alternative for transportation for short and long-distance trips.
Ministry of Power came up with guidelines to regulate the installation of charging stations. As per regulations, any individual can install the charging station as there is no separate license that is required by them from the authorities. These regulations were enacted with the objective of enabling faster adoption of electric vehicles in India as well as promoting affordable tariffs chargeable from electric vehicle owners and Charging station operators or owners.
