'Use of electric vehicle should be made mandatory for govt officials': Gadkari
Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said he would make electric vehicles mandatory for officials of his department. The transport minister's statement came in a bid to encourage the use of electric vehicles instead of petrol-diesel vehicles. “If 10,000 e-vehicles are brought into use in Delhi, Rs 30 crore can be saved per month. Use of electric vehicles will also help reduce air pollution in the city-state. I will make use of electric vehicles mandatory for officials of my department. Electric fuel is a major alternative for fossil fuels which have an import bill in crores,” Gadkari said. The union minister was speaking at the launch of an awareness campaign, 'Go Electric’. The campaign was launched to spread awareness on the benefits of e-mobility, EV Charging Infrastructure, etc.

    Very important is this topic. Please share with your friends. Dear friends, I think 100% people don't know the practical applications on grid . Please understand what is the every day grid transmission , what is the actual traffic on the grid on peak hours and off peak hours . How much electricity is required for water pumping applications , how much electricity is required for commercial purposes and industrial applications. Like this if we consider each sector and it's peak and off peak hours total requirements. What is the total power generation and distribution one should understand. In India the per hour power generation is 317000 MW and in India there are minimum 100000 petrol pump outlets on pan India basis or in 28 states and 8 union territories and in India there are 230000000 vehicles running on roads and registered in RTO'S of India. If we consider each one individual petrol pump or outlet with a minimum storage capacity of 20000 litres of diesel or petrol then each one litre will have only 3 kWh or units of energy stored. So each petrol pump has 60000 kWh or units stored energy or 60 MW stored energy. Total petrol pumps outlets are 100000 and each petrol pump has 60 MW stored energy then it will be 6000000 MW of energy supplied to these 23000000 vehicles running every day on the Indian roads so where is the energy or electricity to supply for these many vehicles. If each vehicle battery is charged with in 35 seconds then where is the electricity generation. How can grid function on this sudden imbalance and over balancing of the sudden requirements from various sectors. Please understand this generation and distribution or transmission and where are the extra lines to take the extra load . Dear sir greetings, Story of India. India is having 78000 petrol pumps outlets and are selling petrol and diesel and gas and each petrol pump has a 20000 litres of liquid per bunk and this is having 60 MW energy. So India requirement is 5000000 MW of energy. Please understand this ground realities. 230 million vehicles on Indian roads 1 million is 1000000 230000000 vehicles If each vehicle gets minimum 5 kWh or 5 units charge then per hour India needs 23 00 00 000 vehicles X 5 kWh or units 1150000000 kWh or units per hour 1150000000 kWh or units per hour if each unit is sold for 10 rupees 11500000000 rupees revenue generated 100740000000000 rupees per year This is the revenue generated per year Sir these are genuine figures On ground reality If we convert this to hydrogen then please think about the ground realities Please understand the importance and value of the flywheel technology and invention I am the only person to work on Flywheel power generation technology and Flywheel power storage technologies I am the only person to work on power Multipliction technologies I am using hydraulic applications pneumatic applications batteries operated motors in-pipe cascading power generation technology etc for power storage and power generation and power Multipliction I have sent to mukesh ji , like this I have sent to all important people in India I am doing my marketing and advertising and branding I am open to all people of the world HYDROGEN story From where can India get the input electricity for making hydrogen Where is the water , where is the input electricity. Can any one answer? For an input of 100 kw only 70kw is coming So for 1000 kw requirements how much energy is spent 1428 kWh spent and 1000 received So my question is from where can they get this energy This is just for 1 truck energy requirements per 500 km run India is having total 23 crore vehicles running on Indian roads Out of this half are trucks ,buses So how can we get so much of input energy For storage , transportation and distribution how much more energy is required In the bus sector :- In India there are 350000 busses and if each bus gets an investment of 1428 kw then 350000 busses should get 1428 kw investment per each one individual bus = 499800000 kwh electricity per every single charge so if we convert this into MW then 499800 MW per every charge . AND For rest of the TRUCKS please think out of 100000000 trucks registered with Indian RTO from 28 states and 8 Union Territories. Please think what best can be the real time situations. World First fuelless power generation technology developed by Indian scientist couple. Absolutely free energy technologies www.kammagearflywheelpowergeneration.com Just 4 batteries and running a submersible pump, a welding machine or a lath machine or a industrial heater etc mechanical load and electrical load like halogen bulbs inlabel.info/chat/dK2lnrXZlKCJeJY/v.html inlabel.info/chat/lm6hr5XJx6hzY4A/v.html inlabel.info/chat/lJxet7y9pIB-q6I/v.html inlabel.info/chat/qGp2t97JwX2UjZ4/v.html inlabel.info/chat/o4iDsNTJ2IGLpYQ/v.html Federal government of India has accepted this technology and invention and incorporated Flywheel , compressed air and pump storage Thanks Like this there are many unanswered questions.

    Mister gadkari, you are going in wrong direction... In order to improve sales of electric vehicles you need consider the problems which a consumer can face... And the biggest one is less public electric vehicle charging station, and lack of mechanic of these vehicles... Just pass an order for petrol pumps to install charging ports, and you'll definitely see an increase in demand of electric vehicles 🙏🙏

    • Vintage Classic Cars
      Vintage Classic Cars

      @Music Study by the time that happen some other technology will come through. Battery technology is very limited and the biggest issue is degradation. People are suing Tesla for faking battery life and unless you periodically run the full range you wont notice you have a massive range loss. Its going to be the same in a decade. I'd rather save my money and work with the cars I got plus no charging at home. Litterally with synthetic fuels all you have to do is replace the gas in the gas stations and fuel up. You're really to go. You don't have to spend anything extra the synthetic fuels will be at $3 or less.

    Yes. Today, it is necessary to use renewable resources. Electrical vehicle is just a step towards the goal of green energy. In the near future, in India, we must use electric vehicles as many as possible. We must build charging stations in a huge number. That charging stations will use solar, wind ( renewable) energy to recharge itself. In the near future our country will develop that kind of ecosystem. It will be successful for sure. Lastly, big giant like Tesla is creating manufacturing plant in India and it will open R and D department after that. This will boost the business of electrical vehicle and other renewable energy sector businesses.
