Delhi gets guidebook for setting up electric vehicle chargers in residential areas

Aimed at encouraging the adoption of EVs, the document details the process of setting up the charging infrastructure, while addressing concerns about space, investment and power load management

To encourage the adoption of electric vehicles, the Dialogue and Development Commission of Delhi, in collaboration with World Resources Institute, India, on February 28, unveiled the Residential Electric Vehicle Charging Guidebook, a move aimed at boosting charging facilities in residential areas of the national capital.

Inaugurating the guidebook and two EV chargers in Vasant Kunj locality of the city, Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot said the goal was to reduce pollution and also to do away with the issue of charging anxiety.

"The bigger goal is zero emission," Gahlot said, expressing hope that resident welfare associations would be inspired to have chargers installed in their neighbourhoods.

The Delhi government would be first in the country to make RWAs and residential areas an integral part of the EV movement, he said, adding the aim was to set up a charging station at every 3 km.
