Electricity Pricing and Charging Strategy for Electric Vehicles in India


Recent growth in Electric Vehicle (EV) adoption has raised the question of how EVs affect the electricity rates paid by all households, including those that do not own EVs. This is an important equity question that should be analyzed when determining the role that electric utilities should play in supporting the transition to EVs. By motivating EV owners to charge their vehicles when power supply exceeds demand, dynamic pricing can improve system load shape and capacity utilization, reduce consumer costs, and cut pollution.

In this webinar, Mr. Abhishek Ranjan, AVP & Head – Renewable and DSM Initiatives, BSES Rajdhani Power Ltd., will throw light on key aspects of this topic, which will be of interest to various groups such as consumers, electricity and charging infrastructure utilities, policy makers, OEMs, and EV component manufacturers.

Areas of discussion will include:

  • How do we manage TOD (Time of the Day) /TOU (Time of Use) /Hourly pricing of electricity as per charging technologies for electric vehicles in India?
  • How do we link renewable energy to charging infrastructure for electric vehicles?
  • What are the effective charging infrastructure planning mechanisms on existing electricity distribution lines?
  • What could be the most sustainable and efficient business models for execution of the same?
  • How is real time monitoring done in the most effective way?

This 1-hour session will include a presentation by the expert speaker, followed by Q&A.
