DIYguru in collaboration with JSPM, Pune hosted an International workshop on ‘Electric Vehicle Technology’ by complete knock down and assembly of EV KITs, learning the DIY way and promoting pollution-free EV World in India in the campus from 6th to 10th Jan. 2020.
This joint collaboration between DIYguru and JSPM will play a major role in the upskilling, supporting the E-Mobility ecosystem in Maharashtra and nearby regions enabling others to start micro entrepreneurship in different fields of Electric Vehicle Infrastructure ranging from setting up charging stations, Starting a Retrofitting Business to enabling an Electric Bus fleet on Opex model. and contributing to the ‘Make In India’ campaign.
Addressing the event, Chief Guest Prof. A. K. Bhosale, (Director, JSPM) said, “Maharashtra is one of the first 10 states in the country which is working on policies for 100 percent adoption of EV for public transport. This will motivate individuals to also go for EV, which will help in reducing problems such as traffic Management and pollution. The introduction of a workshop like this can be a breakthrough.”
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. R. K. Jain, Principal, RSCOE, explained why a product such as this is needed for countries like India where traffic is one of the major problems. This Lithium-ion battery operated EV powered by Solar Power will also reduce huge wiring set-up required for electrically powered EV. The Population required of public transport of best quality, affordable price and good to the environment will support this project in India.
The inaugural ceremony also saw the august presence of Dr. R. S. Joshi, (Director, JSPM’s), Dr. PP Vitkar, (Director, JSPM’s), Prof. Sudhir Bhilare, (Campus Director, RSCOE), Mr. Ravi Sawant, (Estate Manager, RSCOE), Dr. A.S. Deosthali, (Vice President, RSCOE), Mrs. N. D. Ghorpade, (Mechanical Department, Workshop Coordinator), Ms. S. Y. Tamboli, (Electrical Department, Workshop Coordinator)
A research group led by Dr S. L. Chavan, HOD, Electrical Department, JSPM, Pune, has substantial expertise in the development of cathodes, anodes, electrolytes and performance studies, among others including modeling and performance evaluation of PEM fuel cell by controlling its input parameters.
Speaking on the occasion, the Guest of Honor Avinash Singh, CEO, DIYguru spoke about how DIYguru is promoting Indian Talent though Knowledge exchange and providing scholarship for bright candidates.

Smart mobility and electrification are reshaping the future of mobility and accelerating the transition to e-mobility. Electric vehicle (EV) sales keep increasing, now more than 1 million units globally, one of the fastest growing segment of the automotive market.1 While geographic discrepancies are high, the trend is accelerating further, and sales are likely to rise in coming years.
The roll out of EV charging infrastructures is critical for EVs to be adopted on a large scale. New infrastructure development, especially charging points, is essential to keep addressing customers’ range-anxiety and further bolster the uptake of EVs. Consequently, the deployment of charging infrastructure coupled to EV penetration are creating new market opportunities and attracting new players.
Assessing who can capture new value generated by this market is critical. Indeed, business models and development scenarios are constantly reshaped, making it uneasy to forecast financial returns and economic benefits for market players.
The development of e-mobility represents a billion-euro opportunity that companies should seize by preparing the future from today. The key is to adopt viable business models that enable them to differentiate themselves from competitors in an increasingly crowded market. As the Achilles heel of the electric vehicles (EVs) market lies in the charging infrastructure, this is a crucial avenue to explore in order to gain a competitive advantage. Enablers like DIYguru will help this ecosystem to offer skilled manpower which is the essence of the market.
