Fortum, BSES Yamuna partner to launch EV chargers with load balancing

Fortum Charge & Drive India has teamed up with BSES Yamuna Power Limited (BYPL) to develop India’s first load balancing pilot project. The prototype project will be focused on providing intelligent load allocation between chargers and electric vehicles (EVs).

According to the reports, the pilot project will focus on managing charging in Fortum Charge & Drive smart chargers by balancing dynamic demand from EVs with static load input from BYPL. The pilot project will last for one year. As part of the agreement, Fortum C&D India will build and operate three chargers (five charging points) in Mayur Vihar Extension Phase I in New Delhi.

The current EV chargers made in India do not have smart load balancing capabilities. As a result, within the first six months of the agreement’s signing, the right charger was identified and procured. This smart controlled EV charging station at Mayur Vihar Extension Phase I is co-located with BYPL’s 11 kV Sub Station building and can charge five e-vehicles at the same time. More smart EV charging stations will be installed in the south, west, east, and central Delhi areas, depending on the response.
