Pune-based turnkey solution start-up Autobot India under its vertical Autobot Academy has signed an MoU with Bangalore-based Cell Propulsion, a fleet electrification company, to provide a blended learning platform in EV technology.
The collaboration aims to build a large community of experts in India who are skilled in different electric vehicle (EVs) technologies. The idea is to fill the knowledge gap in the EV industry in terms of being self-sufficient. The partners believe this will enable OEMs and auto companies to gain multifarious benefits and get customised solutions depending upon what they want to achieve. The three core areas where the association will focus include - skill development and knowledge sharing; capability building; and creating a talent pool.
Ashwini Tiwary, founder, Autobot India said, “We are excited to partner with Cell Propulsion. This unique association will combine our capabilities wherein we will provide a platform and Cell Propulsion will further their technical know-how to benefit the industry stakeholders. Our efforts are also in line with the Make in India initiative. Apart from making the country self-sufficient in terms of EV equipment and machinery, our aim is to also provide technical consultancy and help like-minded entities to collaborate.”
Nakul Kukar, founder, Cell Propulsion said, “This is a unique partnership with Autobot India through which we intend to assist them in skill development and capacity building for the Indian EV industry. I am confident that their learning platform will help all Indian EV companies by creating a large talent pool with relevant skill sets.”
Autobot Academy aims to build a platform to offer specialised and customised programs suiting industry requirements, that will help them prepare for the transition to EVs.
