CASE: Ensto helped India to take its first steps to build electric vehicle charging infrastructure

First Ensto electric vehicle charging station was opened in New Delhi, India in October 2017. The station has Ensto Pro EV charging unit and it is connected to Finnish clean-energy company Fortum's Charge & Drive platform. The station was inaugurated by Finland’s Minister for Housing, Energy and Environment Kimmo Tiilikainen, Finnish ambassador in India Nina Vaskunlahti, Fortum SVP Corporate Affairs and Communications Arto Räty and Ensto CEO Ari Virtanen.

India is the world’s 5th largest automobile market and it is preparing for a huge transportation transformation by 2030. India's aim is that by 2030, not a single new petrol or diesel car should be sold in the country in order to reduce emissions and dependency on petroleum imports. Recently India’s government has invited bid for purchase of 10,000 electric vehicles. Ensto wants help and guide the nation in its efforts to build a proper EV charging infrastructure.
