Safety Provisions For Electric Vehicle Charging Stations


Following safety provisions are applied to electric vehicle charging stations

  • Protection against overload of input supply and output supply fittings
  • Electric vehicle charging point shall be installed so that any socket outlet of supply is at least 800 millimeter above the finished ground level.
  • A cord extension shall not be used in addition to supply lead for the connection of electric vehicle to the electric vehicle charging point.


Hydrogen Fuel Transportation

 Hydrogen Production – Centralized / Decentralized

  • Hydrogen is produced either in a centralized or decentralized manner, but transportation is key point. 
  • The cost of hydrogen generation is lower due to economies of scale but transmission and distribution costs are higher in the centralized production. 


Earthing Protection For E Vehicle Charging Stations


Earth protection system for E Vehicle Charging stations

According to Central Electrical Authority notification, 2019 earth protection system for the all the electrical vehicle charging stations

  • All residual current device of the protection of supplies for electric vehicle shall

       ( a ) Have residual operating current not greater than 30 mA

India's Hydrogen Energy Roadmap : Vision - 2020

  • The nation hydrogen energy roadmap was laid in the year 2006 to provide blueprint for the long-term public and private efforts required for hydrogen energy development in the country. 
  • The roadmap identify technology gaps and challenges for introduction of hydrogen in large scale in different phase manner. 


Hydrogen As Fuel | Future of Hydrogen

  • As energy demand is rising day by day, hydrogen is promising energy carrier. 
  • It is non-polluting, efficient and clean fuel which could be used for most of the energy sectors like the conventional fuel or like electricity and provide energy to the nation. 

Fuel Cell : Hydrogen Production & Applications


Hydrogen production, storage, transportation and applications

  • The current global demand of hydrogen is 70 million metric ton per year in terms of energy it is around 330 million. 
  • Most of the hydrogen is produced from fossil fuels ( 76% form natural gas, 23% from coal and remaining from electrolysis of water ) which consumes 6% of global natural gas and 2% of global coal, result in CO2 emission of 830 Mt per year. 


India’s Renewable Purchase Obligation 2030

India’s Renewable Purchase Obligation ( RPO ) and Energy Storage Obligation  ( ESO ) Trajectory from 2022 – 23

  • Energy from hydro power projects is considered as renewable energy has been recognized world over on 8th march, 2019. 
  • The government of India had also recognized large hydro power projects including pumped storage projects having capacity of more than 25 MW is considered as a part of renewable energy.
