    Ms. Manjula Girish, Business Head- EV Charging & Photovoltaic Inverter Division at Delta Electronics India

    Rashi Bajpai, Sub-Editor at ELE Times had an opportunity to virtually interact with Ms. Manjula Girish, Business Head- EV Charging & Photovoltaic Inverter Division at Delta Electronics India. The conversation focused on Delta’s initiatives and commitments towards developing sustainable and cutting-edge EV charging solutions for the Indian market.

    This is an excerpt from the interview.

    ELE Times: One of the key segments where the engineering and technology fraternity is anticipating exponential growth and market expansion in the next decade is EV. Also, highlighting the wave of self-sustainability under the theme of “Make in India”, what is Delta’s preparedness in addressing the same?

    Manjula Girish: As a technology-oriented organization our prime focus is to develop products and solutions that cater to the advancing market requirements and emerge as a leader in the segment. When we speak about sustainability as a goal to be achieved in doing business, Delta is working in the EV segment which is in many ways one of the key elements in driving the sustainability movement, pointing towards carbon neutrality and net zero emissions. In terms of our efforts towards the prospects of “Make in India”, we firmly believe in the policy as an organization and are very critical in subjecting our manufacturing procedures to the Government of India mandates and specifications. We adhere to all the regulations set as per the government’s standards while putting a product out in the market. Lastly, when we speak about the shifting gears towards e-mobility with the penetration of EVs getting ramped up, be it two-wheelers, three-wheelers, four-wheelers, and the bus, Delta is a leader in developing EV charging solutions of diverse range. Hence, we are all for building sustainable and indigenous products with an orientation towards EV solutions.

    ELE Times: What are the key focus areas of Delta in the development of EV charging solutions and products?

    Manjula Girish: Delta has built a strong framework of EV charging solutions. The product portfolio in this segment is very diverse- specifications catering to multiple use cases. Our products include- fast chargers, slow chargers, and AC chargers. We also have chargers that can be used in charging hubs for fleet operations. We have EV charging solutions for Residential, Commercial, and Public sectors with necessary infrastructure support. On the lines of innovation, we are currently working on a portable charging solution that can be carried along with the vehicle and can be used at various stages while commuting. Right now, our chargers possess a power range between 3.3 kilowatts to 240 kilowatts.

    ELE Times: Please help us understand the DeltaGrid Energy Management System from a technology perspective, and what outcomes have your customers experienced?

    Manjula Girish: When we talk about the Grid technology and substantiating the grid power, we do have green EV charging solutions where you can generate, store, and utilize the power as per convenience and need. In case the power generated is excessive, it can be fed back to the grid. With such technology in place and in trend, we are surely ramping up the development and their installations. Delta has also partnered with certain companies in the segment and also foresees many future collaborations.

    ELE Times: EV battery technology remains the prime focus of EV manufacturers, as they are seen investing heavily in R&D towards improving energy density, charging speed, and also the lifespan of batteries. What level of research has Delta taken up to cater to the highly anticipated increasing demand, as EV gains popularity across wider swaths of the population?

    Manjula Girish: Delta has developed a range of charging solutions- slow and fast chargers; that cater to different power requirements. We have solutions in place that help charge a car between 6-7 hours, depending on the range. Our fast charging solutions provide full charging between 2-3 hours, and can also map the charging activity. We have right from 25 kilowatts to 240 kilowatts fast charging solutions based on the power need. The OEMs today recommend two fast charging points and one slow charging point to facilitate healthier and longer battery life. For all these use cases, Delta has got a solution in line.

    ELE Times: What is Delta’s Plan of Action/ expansion goals towards building a deeper EV charging infra in the country, given we already have many giants and start-ups that have stepped up in setting up quality EV charging stations across the country?

    Manjula Girish: Delta’s procedure is such that every product that we put out in the market goes through extensive and aggressive testing procedures, hence there is no compromise in terms of quality. We are leading the way in setting up EV charging infra around many government organizations – MSEDL, and BPCL to name a few, and are a preferred partner for the Government of India and the distribution agencies. In terms of fleet operations, we have partnered with TATA Power for the installation of chargers across India. We have also collaborated with BluSmart- an exclusive EV fleet operator to set up charging hubs to facilitate seamless four-wheeler operations across India.

    ELE Times: What is the next big breakthrough after the successful launch of “Innovation on Wheels” that Delta is working on?

    Manjula Girish: Delta Electronics is both a product and a solution-oriented organization. Our focus is to actively innovate in untapped areas. We strongly believe in nurturing every aspect of technology that helps us bring out the best products and solutions in the market at the right time. Our R&D goals are bold as we embark on developing better futuristic systems. Also, as mentioned earlier, we strongly support the “Make in India” initiative of the government and in that respect, Delta has come up with a manufacturing ecosystem in Krishnagiri, where 4-5 plants have been set up. Also, there are multiple product lines that we plan on shifting to India. There are multiple initiatives in varied domains that Delta is working on. Of course, “Innovation on Wheels” has been a huge development success along with the product positioning, and we anticipate many such projects in areas of automation, power electronics, mobility, and infrastructure, to lead the Indian and global markets.
