India’s largest power generator, NTPC has signed a tripartite agreement with Jabalpur Smart City Limited and Jabalpur City Transport Services Limited to help Jabalpur creating the e-mobility infrastructure.

NTPC general manager Praveen Saxena said, “NTPC is committed to develop the charging infrastructure for EVs across the country. NTPC shall design the optimum charging infrastructure required for the city based on inputs received from Jabalpur administration. At present, the electricity connection shall be secured from Discoms, however, NTPC intends to bring its own power at its charging stations for making the input electricity cost affordable for EV owners”.

The agreement plans to cover all major activities in value chain from planning and designing the complete ecosystem to making investment and operating the charging infrastructure using cloud based system.

This is the first major step taken by NTPC where a complete city shall be taken up for developing charging infrastructure for all segments of EV which will support and boost the centre plans on e-mobility.
