People in India are presently quite concerned about the EV battery-related fire incidents that have occurred over the last few months. They are talking as to how some EVs are catching fire on account of the battery problem, albeit there may be other causes for these accidents. No doubt these safety concerns need to be addressed on utmost priority by all the stakeholders so as to boost the public confidence in safe operation of EVs and to support the government’s safety endeavour. The government of India has initiated various measures to encourage the production and use of safe electric vehicles. Electric vehicles have started to enter the Indian market with the government’s support. However, one of the basic requirements for speeding up adoption of electric vehicles in India is to ensure the safe operation of the EV battery system besides setting up of suitable and adequate charging infrastructure.
EVI Technologies (EVIT), an IIT Delhi alumina Start-Up, has floated the EV battery system using flame-resistant batteries. The flame-resistant battery has been accorded approval as per AIS156 STANDARD. The flame-resistant battery will go a long way in instilling trust in the users mind and they can now use these batteries without worrying about risking their lives or their property in any way, especially in light of the battery fires that occurred in recent months, even with some large OEMs. With this technique, EVIT hopes to encourage safe development of the nation’s infrastructure for battery exchange. As the infrastructure for battery swapping supports first and last mile connectivity, lighter electric vehicle segments, particularly two and three-wheelers, will be able to safety drive their vehicles on the road. Flame-resistant batteries also produce less pollutants. Electric mobility additionally will help maintain a good balance between the need for energy, energy storage, and environmental sustainability. Use of Electric vehicles will also make a significant contribution in keeping control on carbon emissions otherwise due to use of fossil fuels in the transportation sector.
EVIT is of the view that more and more Electric vehicles on the road will usher in a better environment and lead to a better quality of life. Whether it is powering the three-wheel electric vehicles for first and last-mile connectivity or a smartphone app i.e. Swiggy, Zomato, Ola, Uber, and many more, runs on two wheels with the innovative technologies created by EVIT, we believe that people will have great faith in the E-mobility segment and that all the fears and concerns they currently have will be allayed. EVIT offer of flame resistance battery system will ensure safety concerns and provide ample opportunities for enhanced e-mobility use in our daily life.
