Yip Hon Weng on Electric Vehicles Charging Bill

08:56 Min

Is the proposed minimum number of electric vehicle (EV) charging points adequate to meet Singapore’s projected needs and encourage higher EV adoption in the near future? Has demand from electric commercial vehicles been factored in? How does the Government plan to mandate EV charging at existing developments with no plans to upgrade? As EV charging infrastructure is expanded, can the authorities do more to formalise codes of conduct to encourage considerate behaviour such as not parking in lots reserved for EVs? What measures will be taken to ensure that there is fair and sustainable competition among EV charging providers, while avoiding the problem of having too many small players and risking a fragmented market? These were among the clarifications sought by MP Yip Hon Weng in Parliament on Wednesday (Nov 30) during the debate on the Electric Vehicles Charging Bill.
