Saktiandi Supaat on Electric Vehicles Charging Bill

13:40 Min

The Electric Vehicles Charging Bill is an important milestone in Singapore's journey to become greener as a country, said MP Saktiandi Supaat. Speaking in Parliament on Wednesday (Nov 30), he said introducing a framework to regulate safe and efficient charging is a significant starting step, but it "should not be the end". He voiced support for the move to require developers of certain buildings to install infrastructure to support the supply of minimum electrical charging capacity as it is more cost-effective to plan and incorporate such infrastructural elements at the outset than to do this midway through the construction works. Mr Saktiandi said given the nationwide push for a greener transport infrastructure, he would have thought that the Government would join the effort and take the lead in equipping its developments with the necessary electrical infrastructure. He also asked if the Ministry of Transport has a rough idea of how many licences it intends to allow to operate in the geographically limited market. Turning to enforcement, he asked if the Land Transport Authority intends to take a proactive and preemptive stance instead of prosecuting persons only after the incidents.
