Maharatna enterprise BHEL has decided to build a network of solar-based electric vehicle chargers (SEVC) on the Delhi-Chandigarh highway. The project is covered under the FAME scheme (faster adoption and manufacturing of hybrid and electric vehicles in India) of the centre’s department of heavy industry.

 
The PSU says that EV chargers would be installed over the entire 250 kms stretch between Delhi and Chandigarh to address concerns of electric vehicle owners and boost their confidence to use e-vehicles for inter-city travel.
 
BHEL will be involved in design, engineering, manufacturing, supply and installation of the EV charging stations along with a central monitoring system. Each charging station will be equipped with a rooftop solar power plant to supply green energy to fast and slow chargers planned to be installed at the location.
 
BHEL is making efforts to expand its footprints in the e-mobility business. It has already installed DC chargers at Udyog Bhawan in New Delhi.
 
BHEL is extending its offering in the e-mobility segment and has equipped itself to foray into manufacturing of EV chargers, electric buses and related critical components. As part of the Make in India initiative, in-house development of EV motors, propulsion systems and fast chargers has also been undertaken by the PSU.
