    Bengaluru to get charging point for e-vehicles on Feb 15, 11 more to come up The charging station will come up at the Bescom headquarters near KR Circle in Bengaluru. TNM Staff Going ahead with its policy to incentivise making and using electric vehicles, the Karnataka government will soon introduce 11 public charging points for e-vehicles in Bengaluru. Karnataka Energy Minister DK Shivakumar claimed that the first such charging point in the country will be ready for public use at KR Circle at the Bescom’s corporate office from February 15. “For the first time in the country, we are coming out with the EV charging stations, which will be inaugurated on February 15. For now, there will be one such station at the Bescom headquarters near KR Circle and later 11 more such stations will be added in six months. The locations for these stations are being identified. Each vehicle can be charged in about 25 to 30 minutes, ” the minister said. This will be one of the 11 fast-track charging points planned to be installed in the city in the first phase. However, there is still no clarity on how much these charging points will cost users. “We have sent a proposal to the Karnataka Electricity Regulatory Commission (KERC) to fix a tariff for the charging station so that members of the public can also use these facilities, ” said P Rajendra Cholan, Managing Director, BESCOM. Presently, Bengaluru has just over 6, 000 electric vehicles among a total of 72 lakh vehicles. In order to increase the number, Bescom is set to replace close to a 100 of its own vehicles with EVs gradually to lead the transition. Meanwhile, Bescom has also stated that it has surplus power and there is no reason to worry about power cuts for now. “We have surplus power now. The State is already purchasing short-term power of 900 MW per day. Around 600 MW is coming from the Pavagada Solar Park and another 800 MW is expected in another 15 days, ” Cholan said. With this, the Bescom estimates it will have a minimum surplus of more than 2000 MW per day. He said the power cuts which are occurring in some parts of Bengaluru are completely for technical reasons and will soon be fixed. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=764894533706736& id=464835727045953

    In a first, Goa govt flags off electric bus for passengers The electric bus is able to ply 250 kilometres, and is seen as a good fuel buffer for a state where 18, 000 litres of fuel is consumed daily by the states' 535 fleet of bus. Panjim In a first, the Goa state Government on Tuesday inaugurated an electric bus for passengers, as part of its commitment towards the environmental friendly public transport. The Bus—which will run on a trial—will cover all main routes across the state in the next few weeks, with five days of transit. The bus was flagged off by Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar from the Panjim Bus stand. On full charge, the bus is able to ply 250 kilometres, and is seen as a good fuel buffer for a state where 18, 000 litres of fuel is consumed daily by the states’ 535 fleet of bus. The electric bus is the second in the larger environment friendly public transport policy with Kadamba Transport Corporation experimenting with public transport that runs on ethanol, and buses which run on Bio Gas. With Goa suffering from lack of a good garbage disposal policy, bio gas run buses are being seen as equal partners in the long run to solve the problem of garbage and transport. The bio Gas bus will also be launched in February, once a trial filter is in place. “We are looking at all these measures as most developed nations have completely shifted to these models from petrol and diesel, as far as public transport is concerned. We have been studying these proposals for a while. Now, all these will be put to test, and a study report will be called. It will be based on the findings which will be made on the combination of bus models, ” said Carlos Almeida, Chairman of Kadamba Transport Corporation. Currently, his corporation is looking for a fleet of 50 electric buses, if the business model is to work in Goa. The tickets for the electric bus remains the same, as the other fleet, for now. “The terrain in Goa is tricky and we have three hills in two major routes, plus our interiors have slopes and it needs to now be seen if these models of different energy are able to pick up in such sections. The city and village lines are merged here so all these geographical factors come to play, ” he added. China, which has shown interest in supplying technical know how to the Indian Government, has the largest public transport fleet running on electricity. Recently, Delhi also made a proposal for such a fleet, asking for global tenders. If it becomes successful in Goa, Almeida said they too will be looking for global tenders, and are also in touch with experts to study the bio gas model further. On ethanol, the Nagpur local administration is already experimenting though the initial reports have not been favourable with the bus gulping more fuel than diesel for similar mileage. “These are all measures with the primary objective of safe environment and in Goa, the emphasis on the study reports will be on the basis of what emits less pollution, ” said Almeida. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=760091850853671& id=464835727045953

    E Bike's Features Battery Voltage: 48V Wheel Size: 14"|16"/18" Frame Material: Iron Max Speed: 20-50km/h 48V 12ah Electric Bicycle Transport Package: Carton Wattage: 351-500W Battery Type: Storage Battery Motor: Brushless Folded: Unfolded Range per Power: 31-60 km Specification: 140*46*105 cm #The_Environmental_Benefits_of_e_cycle Electronic gadgets contain metals and other materials that can be saved with the help of e-cycle. Electronics contain heavy metals such as mercury and lead and may even contain radioactive substances. With e-cycle, these chemicals can be properly disposed of and prevented from contaminating the environment. Precious metals such as gold and silver can also be obtained from electronic devices. Recycling these metals will reduce the demand to open more polluting mines and reduce extraction costs. In fact, a ton of electronic devices that undergo e-cycle can yield more gold than 17 tons of ore. More common metals such as iron, copper and aluminium saved through e-cycle also use less energy than from extracting them directly from their ore. For example, recycling aluminium costs only 10% of the energy needed to extract it from bauxite. #The_Socio_economic_Benefits_of_e_cycle Both the economy and society benefit from e-cycle. Even the simple act of giving your old devices to charity may give a needy child the boost that he needs to become successful in life. The e-cycle industry also generates more jobs not only in recycling plants but also in e-waste clean-up projects. According to the estimates by the Environmental Protection Agency, the entire Recycling industry employs 1.1 million people with an annual payroll of around 37 billion dollars. When you get involved with e-cycle, you would add more people to the workforce and give them a better future as well. An electric bicycle, also known as an e-bike or booster bike, is a bicycle with an integrated electric motor which can be used for propulsion. There are a great variety of e-bikes available worldwide, from e-bikes that only have a small motor to assist the rider's pedal-power to somewhat more powerful e-bikes which tend closer to moped-style functionality: all, however, retain the ability to be pedaled by the rider and are therefore not electric motorcycles. E-bikes use rechargeable batteries and the lighter varieties can travel up to 25 to 32 km/h (16 to 20 mph), depending on the laws of the country in which they are sold, while in others, such as China, they are replacing fossil fuel-powered mopeds and small motorcycles. Depending on local laws, many e-bikes are legally classified as bicycles rather than mopeds or motorcycles, so they are not subject to the more stringent laws regarding their certification and operation, unlike the more powerful two-wheeler which are often classed as electric motorcycles. E-bikes can also be defined separately and treated as a specific vehicle type in many areas of legal jurisdiction. E-bikes are the electric motor-powered versions of motorized bicycles, which have been around since the late 19th century.
