State-owned Energy Efficiency Services Ltd’s (EESL) arm Convergence Energy Services Ltd (CESL) has issued a tender for the procurement of 1,00,000 electric three-wheelers (E3W).

This is the one-of-its-kind tender issued by any government entity ever.

In this regard, a request for proposals has been issued inviting original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to provide proposals for electric three-wheelers under different use-cases – including, municipal solid waste collection, freight loaders, food and vaccine transport and passenger autos.

This initiative of deploying electric three-wheelers for refrigerated cold storage and vaccine drives will, in turn, make India’s Covid recovery green and eco-friendly.

CESL will lease these vehicles to entities that wish to avail of such leasing services. CESL will also make these electric three-wheelers available through its digital platform for resale to any entity interested in outright purchase.

Government of India has entrusted EESL for successful implementation of the remodeled FAME II policy. This tender is another step towards achieving the policy targets. All electric three-wheelers must be in compliance with FAME-II policy requirements.

The scope of work for the OEM(s) include designing, engineering, manufacturing, testing, inspection, supply, transportation, complete system warranty and transit insurance, delivery to the end-consumer and providing after sales support.

The tender has been issued to cater to the demand that CESL has aggregated from various partners and states across India.

This tender also includes demand from cities that wish to change their garbage fleet from fossil fuels to electric.

Through this procurement, CESL aimed to achieve cost reduction, standardize the demand for electric three-wheelers and maintain high quality product through quality assurance and quality control procedures of CESL.
