1. Delhi Government presents ‘Residential EV Charging Handbook’

Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot released a handbook which aims to provide step-by-step guidelines to Delhi citizens to install charging points for EVs at their premises. It will ensure that the citizens are well-informed about charging infrastructure installation and benefits being provided by the state government.

The book addresses common concerns of resident welfare associations (RWAs) & society managers like space planning, capital investment, choosing the right mix of EV chargers, power load management etc.

An excerpt from the handbook says,”With the increased adoption of EVs in Delhi, providing EV charging as a service/amenity to the residents will soon become inevitable. At the same time, providing this amenity upfront will also encourage residents to transition to EVs as lack of charging options are one of the biggest impediments to accelerated adoption of EVs.”

You can find the PDF of the handbook here.
