The Indian government announced yesterday that a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI), India and Commissariat a l energieatomique et aux energies alternatives (CEA), a French state-owned research entity and BlueStorage SAS, a French company. 

The MoU was signed on October 3, 2018 in New Delhi. The MoU aims to define the modalities of discussions concerning, in particular, the future collaboration regarding a pilot project to provide SECI an electric vehicle charging station with embedded batteries, powered by solar panels and optimised connection to the grid. The government says this would support in deployment of electrical vehicles by maximising solar mobility and minimising its grid impact.
