In a major development, utility giant Tata Power has signed an agreement with Maharatna Oil & Gas PSU, Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd (HPCL), to set up end-to-end electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at HPCL’s retail outlets (petrol pumps) in multiple cities and major highways across the country.

Tata Power is a pioneer in the EV Charging space and owns an expansive network of over 500 public chargers in over 100 cities covering petrol pumps, metro stations, shopping malls, theatres and highways. 

The company is present across all segments of the EV eco-system i.e. public charging, captive charging, home, workplace charging and ultra-rapid chargers for buses.

Under the agreement, Tata Power will provide EV charging infrastructure at HPCL pumps for EV users who can travel within cities and intercity without any range anxiety. The charging is enabled with the Tata Power EZ charge mobile platform which makes it a seamless experience to vehicle owners.

Development and availability of EV for charging infrastructure is a key requirement for the proliferation of EVs in India.  The partnership will play a strong role in encouraging EV owners to charge their EVs across various petrol pumps.

It is also in line with the Government of India’s National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP) which aims to develop EV charging infrastructure using the latest technological platform along with easy access to electric vehicle for charging points.

Commenting on the development, Sandeep Bangia, Head - EV Charging, Tata Power, said, “we are excited to partner with HPCL who share our vision of sustainable mobility. This strategic tie-up provides us access to a vast retail base of HPCL, especially in cities and along the key highways. The move will tremendously benefit the EV users as it will not only provide them easy access to charging points but also remove the range anxiety, resulting in wider adoption of EVs in the country.”

“HPCL as a key player in the energy sector is committed to provide sustainable energy solutions to our customers. HPCL with its vast network comprising of more than 18,000 retail outlets and Tata Power with its strong presence and expertise in the EV charging segment bring a unique strategic partnership to create a pan India charging ecosystem with end- to end solutions,” said Sai Kumar Suri, ED Retail, HPCL.
