Leading EV charging solutions provider Tata Power on Friday said it has started a nationwide plan of setting up 25,000 electric vehicle (EV) charging points across the country to support faster adoption of e-mobility over the next five years.
The company is showcasing its range of hi-tech electric vehicle charging solutions at the ongoing Auto Expo 2023 in Greater Noida.
A first-hand experience of the technology that is driving Tata Power’s widespread EV charging network — EZ Charge — was provided to the visitors, including one of the most downloaded mobile apps for EV charging — Tata Power EZ Charge, according to a statement from the company.
The app helps commuters find the nearest charging station, know the real-time availability of charging points, and receive updates on charging status, amongst many others, Tata Power said.
The company also said information about its Network Operations Center (NOC) was on display. The Centre helps in the effective operational management of charging stations across India.

NOC is integrated with the online platform that supports Tata Power’s EZ Charge services, has a real-time communication link with all on-board chargers, and aids in the early detection of tech-related issues. The NOC additionally supports quick problem-solving, back-end system support, and proactive planning for charging infrastructure upkeep.
