KERALA EV POLICY 2019 Draft

    “Embrace electric mobility as a tool to promote shared mobility and clean transportation and ensure environmental sustainability, pollution reduction, energy efficiency, and conservation, and to create an ecosystem for manufacturing EV components in Kerala”


    • Key focus on growing internal manufacturing ecosystem, thereby shifting from import-dependent ecosystem to consumption-driven economy.
    • Attracting the vehicle owners to shift to shared mobility.
    • Time of the Day (ToD) tariff will be made applicable for all Public Charging Stations (PCS), Bulk Charging Stations (BCS) and all charging infrastructures having Connected Load / Contract Demand above a specific limit.
    • ToD tariff is expected to diversify consumption behaviors of the consumer as differential tariffs will be charged between the peak and off-peak hours.
    • 20 PCS/BCS each and 150 swapping outlets for 2/3 Wheelers shall be set up in the initial pilot districts in Thiruvananthapuram, Ernakulam, and Kozhikode by KSEBL
