State-owned NTPC on Wednesday said it is working on electric vehicle charging infrastructure as it believes that ultimately mobility through EVs will help.

NTPC Executive Director Mohit Bhargava said electric vehicle is a good concept but the larger issue is related to the battery.

“NTPC is working strongly on the electric vehicle side. On the charging network side,” Bhargava said addressing India Energy Summit here.

“There is a larger issue on the battery side...the life of the battery and how do you reuse the battery,” he added.

NTPC had earlier said it has signed pacts with cab aggregators Ola, Lithium, Shuttl, Bikxie, Bounce, Electrie and Zoom Car for creation of public charging infrastructure for electric vehicles.

The collaboration with these aggregators will lead to development of charging infrastructure for various vehicle segments and effective utilisation of public charging infrastructure, NTPC had said.
