Don Wee on Electric Vehicles Charging Bill

05:51 Min

With the increasing number of electric vehicles (EVs) on the roads, it is necessary to legislate the charging of EVs to ensure safety and accessibility, said MP Don Wee. Speaking in Parliament on Wednesday (Nov 30), he stressed the need to "close the loop" by taking care of EVs, from purchasing to charging and maintenance to disposal. He said this will enable Singapore to transit smoothly to develop the EV sector. He also sought clarifications on the Electric Vehicles Charging Bill. He wanted to know how the Government plans to ensure that public car parks, industrial parks, public and private buildings, bus terminals and hospitals, among others will have enough power capacity. He also stressed the need for a clear framework to minimise inappropriate use and hogging of charging lots. He asked if the Government would consider developing a single app to integrate all service providers and set a common charging rate.
