Factsheet: Accelerating Nationwide Deployment of Electric Vehicle Charging Points

News Releases 04 Mar 2021 Committee of Supply (COS) Electric Vehicle (EV)

          The Government targets to deploy 60,000 electric vehicle (EV) charging points across Singapore by 2030, which comprise 40,000 in public carparks and 20,000 in private premises. To achieve these targets, the Government will implement measures to accelerate deployment at both public carparks and private premises.

2        These measures will support Singapore’s targets to cease new diesel car and taxi registrations from 2025, require all new car and taxi registrations to be of cleaner-energy models from 2030, and have all vehicles run on cleaner energy by 2040.

3        The implementation of these measures will be led by a new National Electric Vehicle Centre (NEVC), set up under the Land Transport Authority (LTA).

Eight EV-Ready Towns by 2025

4        For public housing estates, the Government is taking a town-centric approach to build up the EV charging infrastructure. By 2025, all Housing Development Board (HDB) carparks in eight towns will be fitted with EV charging points: Ang Mo Kio, Bedok, Choa Chu Kang, Jurong West, Punggol, Queenstown, Sembawang and Tengah. These towns are selected as they are well spread out across Singapore, and have a high concentration of carparks with existing electrical capacity to support charging point deployment. Please refer to Annex A for a map of the eight EV-Ready towns.

5        LTA will also plan EV charging point deployment in other HDB towns, and strive to progressively make all towns EV-Ready by the 2030s.

6        In the near term, charging points will be installed in a variety of public carparks island-wide where suitable and where there is spare electrical capacity. The first pilot tender for charging points was issued by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) and LTA on 30 November 2020, covering more than 600 charging points at over 200 public carparks. LTA will be launching an industry consultation later this month on the private sector’s participation on public charger deployment.

EV Common Charger Grant

7        For existing non-landed private residences, LTA will introduce the EV Common Charger Grant (ECCG) to kickstart the expansion of shared charging infrastructure in these developments.

8        The ECCG will co-fund the installation of 2,000 chargers in non-landed private residences between July 2021 and December 2023, subject to a cap. LTA will administer the grant, and will release more details in the second quarter of 2021.

Planning Forward for EV Charging at New Developments

9        The Government will also take steps to ensure that new developments cater sufficient electrical capacity to support wider EV adoption. All new HDB carparks will cater sufficient electrical capacity to support EV slow charging for 15 per cent of their car parking lots, and install a minimum number of chargers in these lots. We will impose this requirement on new private buildings, as well as existing buildings undergoing major redevelopment, in due course. LTA will release more details at a later date.

Setting up of National Electric Vehicle Centre (NEVC)

10       The newly formed NEVC will spearhead the drive to promote wider EV adoption in line with Singapore’s vision for all vehicles to run on cleaner energy by 2040. In addition to planning for the expansion of the nationwide EV charging infrastructure, NEVC will also lead efforts to review EV regulations and standards and develop a robust EV ecosystem in Singapore. NEVC will work closely with relevant Government agencies, industry stakeholders and unions to equip our workforce with new capabilities, anchor new EV-related activities in Singapore, and facilitate the safe and innovative development of new EV-related technologies.
