New Delhi, Mar 18: Diversified technology company Panasonic on Monday announced its collaboration with BSES Yamuna Power Limited to set up electric vehicle charging station here at their head office.

Panasonic has developed the charging station in India at their in-house R&D centre.

The EV charging station was inaugurated in the presence of Panasonic India President & CEO Manish Sharma, BSES Yamuna CEO Prem R Kumar and Panasonic India Head- Energy System Division Atul Arya.

Also present were Panasonic LastMile Hub Director Yasumichi Murase and BSES Yamuna Head Clean and Sustainable Technology Jitendra Nalwaya.

"Built in compliance with the Bharat EV AC 001 standards released by DHI, Panasonic’s smart AC charging station comes equipped with 10KW power and can charge up to three electric vehicles simultaneously," a statement said.

"The newly launched charging station also reduces the charge time significantly for lithium ion battery powered electric vehicles, almost 3 times faster than the conventional Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) Batteries. With this association, Panasonic aims at strengthening the partnership with one of the progressive DISCOMS and scale it up in the future," said Mr Sharma.

The pilot facility inaugurated today is state of the art and comes with key advantages such as enforcing the authorised charging, automated revenue collection understanding of the charging behaviour and pattern, real time charging data, app based control and automated payment mechanism etc. apart from being the most reliable and rugged product in the market.

"With government giving impetus to adoption of electric vehicles and aiming to switch to all electric cars until 2030, it is essential to contribute meaningfully to the initiative. As a diversified technology company, we will continue to introduce products that can help achieve this goal,” he added.

“It is proactively involved in the new developments in the energy space such as electric vehicles and it gives us immense pleasure to associate with Panasonic, which shares our objective of promoting the use of electric vehicles.
