The client wanted to make contextual assessment of barrier and possibilities of implementing EV charging infrastructure of 2W and 4W in one of the Lighthouse cities in India. Also, the study included capturing end-users preference for EV adoption
- Developed Business Models for electric vehicle charging of 2W and 4W at six different locations : Home, Common Building, Office, On-street, Public and Mall Charging for combination of slow, fast and rapid chargers. These business model was developed considering the existing electricity tariff in Maharashtra. The model provided the end-user pricing of EV charging to customers at above mentioned 6 locations using slow, fast and rapid charging.
