Fujitsu has announced the launch of pilot modeling activities to optimise the installation of electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure in India. The initiative leverages Fujitsu’s Fleet Optimisation solution, which uses digital twin simulation technology to streamline fleet deployment and operations.
Fujitsu is conducting the activities as part of its participation in the Zero-Emission Vehicle Emerging Markets Initiative (ZEV-EMI) of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). Fujitsu will collaborate with a consortium of global companies and partners on the construction of a data-sharing platform, working together to promote the adoption of zero-emission vehicles in India and streamline planning and investment in EV charging infrastructure. The pilot modeling activity will take place between November 2023 and March 2024.
Fujitsu and the consortium will utilise fleet data held by collaborating companies to verify and analyse the optimal number and locations for new charging infrastructure in New Delhi and Mumbai. Based on this, Fujitsu will work with the project partners to propose optimal infrastructure investment plans by modeling demand, based on vehicle and driving data.
Fujitsu, as the core digital services company within the consortium, will offer its solutions and technologies to support this project.
Moving forward, Fujitsu will leverage the WBCSD framework and knowledge gained from the pilot modeling activity to promote further cross-industry data sharing, including for air quality and energy generation, as well as consumption. As part of its vision for Trusted Society under Fujitsu Uvance, Fujitsu will further develop offerings that contribute to decarbonising fleets and improving air quality by utilizing Fujitsu’s Social Digital Twin and simulation technologies, with the aim of realizing a net zero society.
WBCSD's ZEV-EMI serves as a platform that brings together governments and businesses with the aim of accelerating the transition to zero-emission vehicles in emerging developing countries. To achieve this goal, WBCSD has announced the launch of the national data-sharing platform in India at COP28 (28 Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) in Dubai on December5, 2023. As part of this consortium, Fujitsu will lead a pilot simulation to optimise charging infrastructure installation to meet journey demand in collaboration with participating vendors.
