URBAN Charge will provide free EV charging units for C&I and condominium building owners, who adopt solar rooftop and energy efficiency projects with URBAN RENEWABLES. The initiative sets to support Singapore government’s goal to roll out a network of public and private charging stations to kickstart decarbonisation of the country’s transport sector.
Sustainable energy developer, URBAN RENEWABLES, is rolling out an exclusive packaged deal under its brand URBAN Charge to give away free electric vehicle charging units along with the adoption of solar rooftop and/or energy efficiency projects for building owners in the commercial and industrial sector as well as private apartment complexes.
“We see great potential in assisting companies and MCST to implement more electric vehicle charging stations for them play a contributing role in Singapore’s sustainable energy transition. It is a win-win situation by helping to drive our business partners’ sustainability goals, while supporting the nation’s target to achieve carbon neutrality in the transport sector. The implementation of URBAN Charge at zero cost is expected to provide a great boost in confidence and to promote convenient accessibility for building owners and local communities en route to normalising electric vehicle adoption”, said Patricia Eng, General Manager of URBAN RENEWABLES.
Last year October, transport minister Ong Ye Kang mentioned in the news the need to further reduce the electric vehicle per charging point ratio from the projected 8:1 in 2030, to better support the anticipated growth of EVs. Singapore is ramping up the installation of EV charging points, as part of its plan to phase out internal combustion engine vehicles by 2040.
Managing director of the group, Edgare Kerkwijk, “There is uncertainty within the private sector at this point of transition, which is exactly why URBAN Charge is offered as an incentive with all risks absorbed by us. While the current government efforts are very much focused on public carparks, we see a crucial need to support the installation of EV charging units at corporate and private levels.”
