DDC, WRI India to launch ‘Workplace EV Charging Guidebook for Corporates in Delhi’

Thursday, 25 November 2021 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

The Dialogue and Development Commission of Delhi (DDC) and World Resources Institute (WRI), India will be launching the ‘Workplace Electric Vehicle Charging Guidebook for Corporates in Delhi’ on November 29.

The Guidebook aims to help employers in their journey of adopting Electric Vehicle (EV) charging at the workplace.

Delhi government announced the Delhi Electric Vehicle Policy in August, 2020, with a vision to promote the adoption of electric vehicles in the city and to make Delhi the EV Capital of India.

 The policy aims to improve Delhi’s air quality by driving the transition to electric vehicles, so that they can reach 25% of all new vehicle registrations by 2024.

In line with this vision, Delhi Government has taken several progressive steps such as introducing subsidies on the purchase of EVs and the launch of a single-window facility to enable the installation of EV charging points in private and semi-public spaces in the city.

Through the launch of this guidebook, Delhi Government is looking forward to encourage corporates in Delhi to join hands in promoting EVs by adopting workplace charging. This guidebook aims to guide corporates in assessing the scope for workplace charging, details the processes involved in effective decision-making along with setting the way forward for its planning and implementation.

Vice Chairperson, Delhi Dialogue and Development Commission of Delhi,  Jasmine Shah said, “Under the vision set by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of making Delhi the EV capital of India.

 Delhi Government has taken many pioneering steps to promote adoption of EVs and build charging infrastructure at mass scale. Research shows that 90% of EVs are charged at home or workplace.

By launching this step-by-step guide to install workplace charging, Delhi government aims to become the first state government in India to make corporates an integral part of the EV movement."
