The tender includes the kind of work in the installation and operation of over 600 EV charging stations at more than 200 public car parks located at public housing estates, community centres, industrial estate, and public parks across the country. The data and insights they get from the tender will be used for future tenders. The tenders will be in a phased manner in the upcoming years.
Lim Eng Hwee, Chief Executive Officer of URA, said, “Bringing charging points to more public car parks island-wide will provide drivers with greater convenience and accessibility, making EVs a more attractive option.”
The plan is in line with the government’s objective to run all vehicles on clean energy by 2040.
Uber has taken a pledge to invest more than £5m in public electric vehicle charging infrastructure in some of the poorest boroughs in London to help the drivers to switch to the electric cars. The ride-hailing company has made an announcement about the investment that only a fraction of the money needed as it is looking to highlight the imbalance across the capital in the installation of charge points.
