Launch of EV Charging Guidebook for Shopping Malls
05th February, 2022
DDC Delhi, in partnership with WRI India, released the ‘Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Guidebook for Shopping Malls in Delhi’ on February 4th, 2022 to simplify and enable the adoption of EV charging at shopping malls in Delhi. With this launch, Delhi became the first state in the country to come up with a step-by-step guide to help shopping malls adopt charging of EVs in their parking space.
Shopping mall representatives welcomed the Delhi government’s initiative of promoting EVs and expressed their support for installing EV chargers in their malls for at least 5% of their parking space in the next 6 months.
Providing an EV charging facility can benefit shopping malls through increased footfall, increased time spent by customers, improved visibility, boost to their ‘green’ image, and improved customer loyalty and it can potentially be an additional revenue stream for the mall owners.
