 A smart electric vehicle (EV) charger of Fortum India has been installed at SCOPE Complex in New Delhi which will be powered by electricity provided by NTPC. 

The charger uses RFID technology to recognise authorised users. 
 
Fortum intends to work together with NTPC for developing, operating and managing charging infrastructure for EVs in India. Both the entities will also jointly explore ways to work towards collaborating further on EV charging ecosystem in India. 
 
NTPC director (commercial & operations) A K Gupta said, “Today, the energy landscape in India is undergoing a major shift towards cleaner means of energy generation and consumption. E-mobility paves the road ahead with great impact on cleaner cities and reduces fuel imports as well. Keeping this in mind, we are in the process of exploring possible ways to put up charging stations across all NTPC stations and are also in discussion with a few states.”
