    Tata Power ties up with HPCL to set up EV charging stations

    Tata Power, India’s largest integrated power company, has signed an agreement with Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd (HPCL), to provide end-to-end EV charging stations at HPCL’s retail outlets (petrol pumps) in multiple cities and major highways across the country.

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

    Tata Power currently has an expansive network of over 500 public chargers in over 100 cities, covering fuel pumps, metro stations, shopping malls, theatres and highways. The company is present across all segments of the EV eco-system – public charging, captive charging, home, workplace charging and ultra-rapid chargers for buses.

    Sandeep Bangia, head - EV charging, Tata Power, said, “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 electric vehicles in the country.”

    Sai Kumar Suri, executive director - retail, HPCL, said: “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.”
