The Pilot ROs – QIS have 14 Batteries, a touch screen for swapping preloaded cards and an electricity sub meter.

Talking about India’s commitment to clean energy, he said, “India, despite not being a major per capita polluter, has committed itself in the COP-21 to bring down the pollution levels in the country. In this direction, we are developing sustainable models of renewable energy, and taken many initiatives like, introduction of BS-VI fuels, spreading the network of CNG and PNG stations, making available LPG to majority of the population, targeting 20% ethanol blending, producing Biodiesel from Used cooking Oil, and widespread use of solar energy for mobility purposes.”He further said, “India is the third largest energy consumer in the world. Our energy consumption is set to grow.Our Government under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi is committed to ensuring energy justice for the people of Indiawhich means providing clean energy to everyone, with accessibility, affordability and convenience.India is charting a responsible path of energy transition which will ensure energy justice to its people while balancing sustainability.Ours is an aspirational society and an Aatamnirbhar Bharat will have clean, affordable, multi-source and multi-dimensional energy solutions, with focus on domestic resources.”Lauding the initiative of the Indian Oil for the battery swapping service at one of the cleanest cities of the country, the Minister said that the OMCs, in future, will not confine themselves to selling conventional fossil fuels, but also retail CNG, LNG, PNG and also act as the electric charging stations.Shri V P Singh Badnore, Governor of Punjab-cum-Administrator, UT, Chandigarh, said that the development has to take care of the environmental concerns as well as the economic needs of the society. Lauding the initiative, he said that electric mobility stations will reduce emissions, check air and noise pollution, and will help in preventing climate changes.
