Solar Powered EV Charging Infrastructure
GreenEnco Ltd announced today another milestone towards the journey against Climate Emergency measures. This is a custom made Off-Grid System comprise with Solar Photovoltaic (PV) module, hybrid inverter, battery storage and a EV charger.
GreenEnco has designed and implemented this Zero-Emission EV charging station under the Innovating for Clean Air (IfCA) programme by Energy System Catapult, UK. The Innovating for Clean Air (IfCA) programme aims to support UK and Indian firms to tackle pollution at source in the city of Bangalorein Karnataka state, by introducing innovations that improve air quality monitoring, addressing challenges related to electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure, power grid management and the integration of renewable energy.
IISc Bangalorehas played a pivotal role to host and facilitate the implementation of this initiative under an India-UK collaboration to battle against Climate Change. The charging facility is available behind the JRD Tata Memorial Library and the solar PV system has been installed on the roof of the Library.
This charging facility will be inaugurated tomorrow by Prof. Govindan Rangrajan, Director of IISc and Mr. Jeremy Pilmore-Bedford, the British Deputy High Commissioner in Bangalore.
This project has established a strong collaboration between academia and industry partners from India and UK, where Vikram Solar Ltd has provided their high efficiency PV modules and FIMER has provided inverter, battery storage and EV charger.
