India: Gogoro and Belrise to Establish Battery-Swapping Network in Maharashtra

The Indian State of Maharashtra has announced a strategic energy partnership with Gogoro and Belrise Industries to establish a network of battery-swapping infrastructure.

As part of this agreement, Gogoro and Belrise will invest approximately 2.5 billion USD over eight years in energy infrastructure across the state.

This will include battery swapping and smart battery stations that are open and accessible to all, forming the world’s largest sustainability-focused portable energy system to date.

The battery swapping stations will benefit a range of applications, such as smart electric vehicles, mobility sharing, demand response services, distributed energy storage and smart agriculture.

Devendra Fadnavis, Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra said:

“As a national leader in sustainability, it is important for the State of Maharashtra to embrace new technologies that are open, accessible and enable dynamic solutions that can accelerate the transition to smarter sustainable cities and set an example that other states in India can follow.

“We are partnering with Gogoro and Belrise to deploy the world’s largest and most innovative smart energy infrastructure to utilise battery swapping for solving the unique and distributed energy challenges we face daily. This project will enable new alternatives to the fossil fuels solutions many of our residents use today.”

The battery swapping infrastructure will be deployed across the State of Maharashtra in 2023 using Gogoro’s smart energy ecosystem and smart battery stations.

The deployment is also expected to accelerate job growth throughout the smart energy, electric vehicle, and sustainability value chain

This technology has also recently launched in Delhi, India to help accelerate the electrification of logistics fleets.

Horace Luke, founder, and CEO of Gogoro said:

“The future of smart sustainable cities and countries is not about a single company or government but about a community coming together to instil a new way of thinking and a new way of utilising sustainable energy in an open and accessible way.

“This partnership represents the future and this new way of thinking - not just about sustainable transportation, but about an entirely new system. That is why we truly believe in building open and accessible infrastructure that will uplift the entire ecosystem.”
