As a leading institution committed to the promotion of innovation and entrepreneurship, iCreate supports India’s 2030 EV ambition. We have defined EVs as our focus area, and to accelerate breakthrough innovations, the iCreate EV Centre of Excellence (CoE) has been set up. The CoE will drive the benefits of standardisation, interoperability, and future-proofing, and enable next-gen innovation, helping place Indian startups on the global map.
Our aim is to provide EV innovators with ready access to core EV technology, and reduce costs for Indian EV manufacturers, so that they are globally competitive.
Here, we aim to support states to procure and run intelligent bus fleets with electric and hybrid powertrains that use zero-carbon fuel.
iCreate EV Centre of Excellence looks forward to collaborating with corporates, research institutions, government bodies, and international innovation ecosystems, in the following areas:
Over the past few years, iCreate has built a track-record of supporting diverse projects in the EV domain. These range from Batteries and battery management systems to Charging systems, Energy recovery systems, Hybrid energy storage systems, Autonomous driving assisting systems, and Smart functionality systems. A stellar example of iCreate’s EV startups is CHARGE+ZONE, a company that has not only been incubated by iCreate, but was also recently helped in partnering with the Government of Gujarat for a $300 million investment, to set up over 50,000 charging stations across India.
We support our startups by providing a one-stop gateway to money, mentors and market connections. Our campus offers state-of-the-art design and simulation labs and rapid prototyping facilities.
