Launch of Workplace Charging Guidebook for Corporates in Delhi
The Government of NCT of Delhi announced the Delhi Electric Vehicle (EV) Policy in August 2020, with a vision to promote the adoption of electric vehicles in the city and to make Delhi the EV Capital of India. The policy aims to improve Delhi’s air quality by aiming to increase the share of electric vehicles to 25% of all new vehicle sales by 2024. In line with this vision, the Delhi Government has already taken several steps such as introducing subsidies on the purchase of EVs and the launch of a single-window facility to enable the installation of EV charging points in private and semi-public spaces in the city.
The Delhi Government is now looking forward to encouraging corporates in the national capital to join hands in promoting electric vehicles by adopting workplace charging.
The Dialogue and Development Commission of Delhi (DDC-D), Government of NCT of Delhi and World Resources Institute India (WRI India) are jointly launching the ‘Workplace Charging Guidebook for Corporates in Delhi’. The event will take place on 29 November (Monday) from 12 pm-1 pm.
The lunch will see senior industry leaders sharing their views on the role of corporates in scaling up EV adoption in Delhi. The guidebook is a ready reckoner for installing EV charging stations at workplaces in Delhi. It aims to guide corporates in assessing the scope for workplace charging and details the processes involved in effective decision-making along with setting the way forward for the planning and implementation.
