The Kerala State Electricity Board Limited (KSEBL) and Elocity have teamed up to inaugurate a network of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in the Palakkad District of Kerala.
While KSEBL is the only integrated electricity company in Kerala, Elocity specializes in digital integration of the EV charging ecosystem.
Talking about the project, a KSEBL spokesperson stated, “The two main drivers of this endeavor are promoting e-mobility and renewables, both of which are critical to achieving climate action goals. As part of this, KSEBL is actively collaborating with key stakeholders to build an EV ecosystem, and this project is critical in delivering reliable, high-quality energy services to our valued customers while also supporting Kerala’s electric mobility aspirations.”
Talking about the charging network Prity Singh, Managing Director, Elocity India said “EV drivers in Kerala would be able to travel long distances using this KSEBL EV charging network. This helps Kerala accomplish its long-term e-mobility goals while also addressing range anxiety, which is a major hurdle for users choosing EVs. The conversation about net-zero targets, zero-emission vehicles, and the sustainable transportation systems in India is crucial and Elocity is proud to be part of it.”
KSEBL EV charging infrastructure network can be accessed via Elocity’s ‘HIEV India’ mobile app, which is available on both Android and iOS
EV owners can charge their vehicles at the KSEBL’s EV charging infrastructure network using Elocity’s ‘HIEV India’ mobile app, which is available on both Android and iOS.
The app can also be used to plan trips and access an extensive EV charging network across India.
Elocity also claims that its HIEV technology is the only EV charging network in India that is compliant with open global standards such as Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP), Open Charge Point Interface (OCPI), Open Automated Demand Response (OADR), and Green Button.
The company says that these standards are critical to building a sustainable, scalable, and future-proof EV charging network for India.
