    The EV owners will be able to locate and access the charging points with the Fortum Charge & Drive India Android and iOS smartphone apps. This app allows customers to monitor their charging activity and even pay for it.

    Fortum, a European energy firm, has installed over 6,000 smart chargers in Nordic countries and 30 per cent of them consist of DC fast chargers. In fact, since 2017, Fortum Charge & Drive India has installed 188 charging stations across eight states and 13 cities in the country. It offers various EV charging solutions, such as Type-2 AC, Bharat DC001—15kW, 20kW, and 30kW, and 50-60kW CCS or CHAdeMO fast chargers.
