S Iswaran on Electric Vehicles Charging Bill

15:01 Min

To achieve its goal of net-zero emissions by 2050, Singapore has to significantly decarbonise its land transport sector and vehicle electrification is a key part of this effort. To facilitate the transition, an islandwide public electric vehicle (EV) charging network that is safe, reliable and accessible will be required. In Parliament on Wednesday (Nov 30), Transport Minister S Iswaran opened the debate on a Bill to strengthen the regulatory framework for EV charging infrastructure. It aims to ensure that EV chargers are safe, and safely used, by regulating the supply, advertisement, installation, registration, maintenance and use of EV chargers. It proposes to ensure the reliability of the EV charging network and services through a licensing regime for EV charging operators. It will promote the accessibility of the EV charging network by mandating a minimum provision of charging points at certain developments and lowering the resolution threshold for EV charger installation at strata-titled developments. Mr Iswaran described the Bill as a “milestone” in Singapore’s quest for a sustainable land transport system.
