NTPC has inked pacts with vehicle aggregators like Ola, Lithium, Shuttl, Bikxie, Bounce, Electrie and Zoom Car to develop and utilise public charging infrastructure.

 
The collaboration with aggregators, having presence in the entire spectrum of e-mobility across India, will lead to development of charging infrastructure for the various vehicle segments as well as effective utilisation of public charging infrastructure.
 
The corporation is planning to provide charging solutions for the entire range of electric vehicles ranging from electric buses to electric 2/3-wheelers and developing associated e-mobility ecosystem across the country. NTPC is in discussion with various state/city administrations for creation of charging infrastructure for public transport and has signed MoUs for cities of Jabalpur, Navi Mumbai and Bhopal.
 
NTPC has already installed charging stations across its generating stations and regional offices. Company has also been associated with IOCL, HPCL and DMRC for development of public charging infrastructure. With these tie-ups NTPC plans to set up a broad based charging infrastructure for electric vehicles, effectively addressing the issue of range anxiety for these vehicles.
 
NTPC is giving a push for adoption of e-mobility which is at nascent stage in India and close coordination among the various stakeholders in the e-mobility ecosystem is required for enabling rapid transition to electric mobility.
