EV Charging Infrastructure

India is working on its electric vehicle concept and accepting this technology for transportation purposes. This technology arises due to the extraction of natural resources(oil), vehicular pollution and there impact on nature. Almost every state in India is suffering from air pollution. Whether it is due to factory or combustion vehicles.

Role of Government:

For vehicular emission, new norms are established by the government for the emission of vehicles. Under the FAME 2(Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric Vehicle in India) government has a clear vision of 30% of private electric cars, 80% of electric two and three-wheelers, 40% of buses and 70% of commercial cars in 2030. The main motive of the FAME2 scheme is to decrease vehicular pollution and to increase the number of employment by making EVs in India. The government has introduced an amount of 10,000 cr. for FAME-2,  the second phase of the FAME India scheme with an Rs 10,000-crore outlay to encourage adoption of electric and hybrid vehicles in the 2019 budget.

Role of Automobile manufacturers:

Charging Infrastructure

In India, the FAME 2 scheme offers relaxation to many automobile sectors for the development of EVs and hybrid vehicles. The main motive of the government is to establish the manufacturing plants in India. It helps the automobile industry in the cost-cutting of Electric Vehicles. Automobile Industries are working on EV technology. Many EVs have been launched and many more are also going to launch in 2020 & 2021. This year is great for EV lovers in India as there are many EVs that are going to be launched. Electric Vehicles are going to Boom the Indian automobile sector this year.

Both above sectors are doing well for EV enhancement or to increase the usage of an electric vehicle, but the main issue which rises is :

“Charging Infrastructure”

Charging Infrastructure

In India, there are very few dedicated charging stations. There are not as many charging stations as there are fuel stations. This makes a negative impact on the buyers of EV. If India wants to fulfill the vision of FAME 2 2030, then they need to focus on charging infrastructure as same as on electric vehicle production.

Right now there are very few charging stations that are there in India and this makes it very difficult for buyers to choose EV. As there competitor(combustion engine vehicles) is having plenty of fuel stations, but there are very few charging stations for electric vehicles.

According to FAME 2, there are around 2636 charging stations that are going to be established in 62 cities and 24states and union territories of India. Therefore, this makes ensure that in every city there is a charging station in every 4 X 4 km grid. This will enhance or boost the confidence of Electric Vehicle buyers in India after the range anxiety.

Also, many private organizations are all ready to set up there charging stations in India. Many organizations are working on EV Charging Infrastructure some of them are:

  • Fleely
  • Delta Electronics India
  • Mass-Tech
  • ABB India
  • Okaya Power Group.

 

 

 

Electric Vehicle

Electric Vehicle Overview

For reading this blog, you might be keen to know about Electric Vehicle concept or its charging infrastructure or Charging Stations.

Ready to get deep into the pool of an overview of Electric Vehicle in India.

And at first, the basic question which everyone wants to know is:

 “Why we want EV?”

There is a phrase which you usually heard on TV i.e.

“Air quality is worst in this city”.

“Do factories or Vehicles will stop emitting these hazardous gases”? 

“Health Issues regarding air quality are rising at a higher speed”

In India, when someone thinks about buying a car then they only think about of their luxury. There is nothing wrong in this, but have you ever thought that:

How much pollution this car is going to emit on per liter of fuel???

Electric Vehicle

In India, while purchasing a car no one thinks about the environment.

India is a country with 22 cities in the list having the top 30 most polluted cities of the World in 2018!!!

If we think of pollution at the starting decades of combustion vehicles, then we are not in a scenario of air pollution.

Now, if we think to stop transportation from combustion engine vehicles. Then, what is the way to fulfill the basic need for transportation?

  • Are you able to reach your office on time?
  • Without Vehicle can we live our life easily?

Here, an important question arises:

“What are feasible ways to fulfill the requirement of transportation?”

And the answer is “Electric Vehicle (EV)”.

 

Yess!!

Now you get an answer that, after all Why we need EV or Why everyone is talking about electric vehicle concept?

The quality of air is poor in urban and metro cities as compared to rural areas because of combustion engine vehicles. As they emit gases like carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, particulate matter. Thus, these gases are responsible for climate change.

Here, comes an upliftment on Electric Vehicle technology.  EVs are useful because they emit less amount of hazardous gases as compared to combustion engine vehicles. Also, one of the major concerns is the extraction of natural resources, if we extract natural resources in large amount then it will affect our mother nature i.e. the earth.

Air pollution has become a public health concern all over the world. Combustion vehicles emit large amounts of hazardous gases. Which are harmful to both nature as well as human. There are many hazardous substances that get mixed up with air particles and make air quality unhealthy. It affects our environment as well as harmful to our health.

Drawbacks of Combustion Engine Vehicle:

Electric Vehicle

Natural Resources Extraction:

Fuel is one of the most precious resources which we get from the earth. And one of the major issue, we are extracting our natural resources at a very high consumption rate.  If we continue to increase the use of fuel every day, then we will stop getting these natural resources easily.

If the amount of extraction goes down as compare to its usage then it is going to be a major issue. As we are extracting fuel from easier reservoirs of oil if these reservoirs got exhausted then we need to extract fuel from complicated reservoirs and it is going to economically expensive.

Health Issues:

Some of the common diseases caused by air pollution are :

  • lungs and respiratory problems,
  • lung cancer,
  • cardiovascular problems,
  • Affect pregnant women and newborns.

Electric car vs Combustion car

Electric cars vs Fuel cars

Fuel !!!

Imagine your car without Fuel??

Electric car vs combustion car

Do we have to come again on bicycles for traveling as in the late centuries!!!

Just think of this scenario do you able to make your transportation easily without “Fuel“. Might be you are aware of fuel and its usage all over the world. If not then there is no need to worry, I will try to give you some facts regarding crude oil which is refined once to make it fuel.

  • It is one of the most important energy source used globally.
  • Around 82% of oil is imported in India of its total usage.
  • Over 85% of our energy demands met with the help of fuel.
  • India’s dependence on foreign fuels has increased a little bit.

Fuel is one of the most precious resources which we get from the earth. And one of the major issues is we are extracting our natural resources at a very high consumption rate.  If we continue to increase the use of fuel every day, then we will stop getting these natural resources easily.


Do we have a sufficient volume of fuel for our future needs?


Electric car vs Combustion car

 

It is going to be a difficult answer. And this is also for sure that it is not going to be finished in 5, 10 0r 20 years. The main issue raises is the rate of consumption. If the amount of extraction goes down as compare to its usage then it is going to be a major issue. As we are extracting fuel from easier reservoirs of oil if these reservoirs got exhausted then we need to extract fuel from complicated reservoirs and it is going to economically expensive.

India is the third-largest consumer of crude oil in the world. After the United States and China.

The consumption rate of India rises from 160.77 MMT in 2008-09 to 251.93 MMT in 2017-18. According to a report India consumes 4.81% of total world oil in 2016-17. So, this is for sure if India needs to cut down its usage of crude oil then they need to adopt some changes. India uses a large volume of oil for transportation.


Does Transportation with Fuel Cars is good?


As we are consuming a large volume of oil for our daily transportation. And combustion vehicle are using this fuel and emitting harmful gases which cause many problems like,

  • It affects nature harshly.
  • This creates air pollution at a high rate.
  • It produces many diseases.

 

Electric car vs Combustion car

“Everything in excess is opposed to nature.” We are making use of oil(Fuel) at a pretty much higher rate for transportation. This only emits hazardous gases which is extremely harmful to the sake of mother nature, the earth.

These cars are not safe for our nature. We just need to find out some way of transportation which is way eco-friendly then combustion vehicles. Many automobile industries are working on Electric cars technology and are providing many Electric cars that compete with today’s fuel cars.


Evolution of Electric Cars


Here comes the upliftment of electronic vehicles, Electric Vehicle saw a resurgence due to technological developments, and an increased focus of renewable energy. Since the last few decades, the influence of the petroleum-based transportation infrastructure on the environment with peak oil has led to regenerate interest in an electric transportation infrastructure, which is considered as a need for electric running vehicles.

The future of Electric cars is going to be brighter for not only India but for the world also. Therefore, this technology is arguably going to rule over the automobile industry. Because of its less emission of harmful gases and environmentally friendly behavior. There are many automobile companies who had launched there EVs in Indian Market.

Some of the Electric cars are going to launch in 2020 and 2021. This may bring a variety of ranges in the Electric Vehicle market. Following are some companies who are launching their Electric cars:

  • Hyundai
  • MG
  • Mahindra
  • TATA

Challenges in Electric Cars


The following are some perspectives which we might have to see for the adoption of Electric Cars in India.

 

Electric vehicle

Cost of Electric Vehicle:

In India, the average cost of cars goes from 5 lakhs to 10 lakhs rupees. And most of the cars are of this range in India. This is where the first challenge arises for EV in the Indian market. As average EV costs a little bit of a higher side as compared to its competitor, i.e. petrol or diesel cars.

 

Charging Infrastructure:

EV is not a new technology in the automobile industry. But this technology did not proceed like combustion vehicle technology. The issue which arises after the pricing challenge is the Infrastructure of charging stations in India. Presently the number of charging stations is not enough to fulfill the requirement of Electric car owners. As we get plenty of a good number of fuel pumps in India in shorter distances. Therefore, the EV owner is not able to get this facility. This might affects the buyer to get an EV over a combustion vehicle.

Battery Issue:

Lithium-ion batteries are one of the indispensable parts of the electric car. Precisely for an electric vehicle battery is one of the most important parts to run a car. This battery is made up of lithium and India is not having enough amount of lithium reserves. Thus we need to import lithium from Bolivia, Chile, Argentina they have large reserves of lithium.

These are some of the challenges in India when we talk about the implementation of Electric cars in India.

Electric Vehicle Needs, Evolution and Problems.

Electric Vehicle Needs!!!

India is in the list of most air-polluted countries in the world. Climate change is one of the biggest challenges looming over society. With ice caps melting at a rapid pace, countries around the world are experiencing a drastic change in their climates, and wildlife is getting affected too.  And one of the reasons behind this is industrial activities and vehicular emissions. It becomes very important for India to make a move on this process. In urban areas air indexing quality is very poor. There are many reasons for that. But one of the topmost reasons for air pollution is the emission of harmful gas from combustion vehicles. This causes many types of health issues.


Health Issues due to Air Pollution


Electric Vehicle Needs

 

A life without health is like a river without water.

Air pollution has become a public health concern all over the world. Combustion vehicles emit large amounts of hazardous gases. Which are harmful to both nature as well as human. There are many hazardous substances that get mixed up with air particles and make air quality unhealthy. It affects our environment as well as harmful to our health.

Following are some gases which are emitted by combustion vehicles :

  • Hydrocarbons
  • Nitrogen oxides
  • Carbon monoxides
  • Sulfur dioxide.

As a result, these gases produce hazardous pollution which gets mixed in air particles.

Some of the common diseases caused by air pollution are :

  • lungs and respiratory problems,
  • lung cancer,
  • cardiovascular problems,
  • liver cancer, and other types of cancer,
  • Affect pregnant women and newborns.

Electric Vehicle Evolution


Electric Vehicle

 

Electric Vehicles are getting popular nowadays, the reason behind this is the vehicular emission of combustion vehicles. It affects our environment harshly. Electric vehicles don’t emit hazardous gases and help to maintain nature.

Therefore, it is mandatory to look after this serious issue. In such times, the push for environment-friendly cars is becoming more important. Vehicular emissions are one of the major reasons behind this process. To get rid of this many big organizations are working on Electric Vehicle technology. In the Indian market, EV is one of the new technology in the automobile industry. Although, there are many automobile manufacturers are ready to launch there EV in India. Some of them are :

  • Mahindra
  • TATA (Nexon EV)
  • Hyundai(Kona)
  • MG ZS EV

Electric Vehicles emit less harmful gases as compare to fuel vehicles. Although electric cars technology is increasing day by day. Electric Vehicle is charge with conventional power outlets or dedicated charging stations. And often gives a charge that is sufficient for normal usage. Which means that EV’s are smart and compatible enough for daily use.


Problems related to Electric Vehicle


Electric Vehicle Needs

 

Cost :

It is one of the major concerns to buy an EV. Electric vehicle’s cost is pretty much higher than petrol, diesel vehicles. And the main reason behind this is the cost of battery which is used in EV. India imports these batteries and this makes a hike in the rate of EV. The battery used in an electric vehicle is a lithium-ion battery which is much costly. So, if the EV market needs to grow then it is compulsory to use a next-gen battery which is cheaper as compared to Lithium-ion batteries.

Infrastructure :

After the costing issue, the next problem which every EV buyer faces is the charging station infrastructure. Although many organizations are working on the Charging infrastructure in India. But the major issue is space. And also there are fewer charging stations in commercial buildings, parking or residential areas. Until people will be assured that they get charging stations at most places, it is more complicated to increase the sale of EV.

Charging Station Issues :

In India, automobile companies are ready to launch there EVs in the market.  But there is a problem in the infrastructure of EV charging stations. The government is also working on the commercial charging station infrastructures. These charging stations are assigned to the shopping malls parking, flats and also have dedicated stations of charging in different places.

There are some organizations which are working on their ways to provide charging solution to Electric Vehicles. They are making charging stations at commercial as well as residential places. They provide different types of AC, DC quick chargers. DC chargers do faster charging as compared to AC chargers. Following is the list of some EV charging providers or working on EV infrastructure in India :

 

  • Fleely
  • Delta Electronics India
  • Mass-Tech
  • ABB India
  • Okaya Power Group.

Will Electric Vehicle cheaper than combustion vehicle in 3-4 years?

Will Electric Vehicle cheaper than combustion vehicle in 3-4 years?

India is moving towards its 2030 electric vehicle target i.e. 30 percent of Electric Vehicle.

CEO of NITI Aayog Mr. Amitabh Kant on Wednesday said that “the cost of Electric Vehicles will become almost equal to Combustion Vehicles in the next 3-4 years”.

 

Kant reportedly said that India has 28 cars for every 1,000 people much lower as compared to the US or Europe. Which has 980 and 850 cars on 1,000 people. Kant said this means as India transits towards urbanization the future will all be electric, shared and connected.

 

“We will transit towards there as the cost of the battery falls from 276 dollars per kilowatt-hour (kWh) to 76 dollars per kilowatt-hour. The cost of electric vehicles will almost become at par with combustion (engine) cars in the next 3-4 years.” the NITI Aayog CEO said while addressing a CII event in New Delhi.

Electric Vehicle

TERI DG Ajay Mathur said there is a need to decarbonise key sectors such as road economy and in the process push a transition to 100 percent green electricity-based mobility.

“In order to move towards a shared, connected and zero-emission world, and to realize the full benefits of EVs, it is important that the battery is charged with clean power and not fossil power,” he said.

One of the major concerns for the high rates of Electric vehicles is the cost of “Lithium-ion battery”. In EV’s the most expenses part is batteries. So, if the battery price goes down then there is a great chance to make a good EV market in India.
