Pakistan is heading towards conserving energy. The first fast-charging machine for electric vehicles has been installed in Pakistan. It will be installed with the help of electric vehicles which will be charged for 15-20 minutes. The electric vehicles can travel up to 270Kms on a single charge and they can cover approximately 400Kms.
Markus Strohmeier, Siemens CEO, said that these were new electric vehicles in Pakistan. The people will be able to charge the cars in two to three hours. This is a huge step. He said, “This is all new for us. We have the fastest charger here and the most innovative technology which we have brought from Germany to Pakistan. We don’t want people to charge their cars in 2 or 3 hours, so, with this technology, an empty car can be recharged in 15 to 20 minutes, and that too like an Audi. And we need to make it accessible for all people. There is a lot of empty land in the surroundings of the highway, so we are not burdening the grids and are generating clean electricity without damaging the environment.”
Abdul Haseeb Khan, CEO of LIBRA Charging Hub, said that the electric vehicles will be charged Rs. 2,000 whereas the large electric vehicles will be charged Rs. 4,000. This will help with the hike in fuel price. He said, “In 2022, when petrol prices are at an all-time high… in these uncertain times, this solution is cost-effective and environment-friendly. We can use electric PMTs to power up more charging hubs in the future. This is green fuel. If the government helps Siemens by providing land off the highway for solar panels to generate electricity for charging hubs, then cheap and reliable electricity could be produced to refuel vehicles. This technology is 60% better than traditional fuels used. This technology is 60% better than traditional fuels used. ”
Murtaza Wahab, Administrator Karachi, said that these electric vehicles are environmentally friendly and help people with inflation. He said, “We need to make up our minds. Such charging stations can be a source of savings. I offer Siemens and LIBRA to identify locations in the city. We can build stations under a public-private partnership. We would like to urge experts to come up with suggestions on how we can make sure to pass this through our legal framework. I am one hundred percent convinced that global warming will increase in the future, so I would like to urge people to use renewable energy to reduce its effect. The federal government is very receptive right now as they are looking up different cost-cutting ways to minimize the import bill on petroleum,” said Wahab. “They have also incentivized the use of solar panels. Kidney Hill Park and Safari Park are the ones where KMC will install solar panels to run them completely on solar energy.”
This is a good initiative, as it will help conserve energy and be environmentally friendly.
