Singapore to Set Up an Additional 600 Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

January 2021

In early January 2021, the Singapore Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) and Land Transport Authority (LTA) issued a pilot tender to set up an additional 600 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations by the third quarter of 2022. As part of the Singapore Government’s objective to run all vehicles on clean energy by 2040, the charging points will be set up at more than 200 public car parks located at various locations, such as public housing estates, community centers, industrial estates and public parks.
At the start of 2021, the Singapore government outlined its plans to increase the number of EV charging stations from the current 1,700 locations to 28,000 by 2030. This would provide drivers with greater convenience and accessibility, making EVs a more attractive option. Additionally, a wider adoption of EVs will yield significant environmental benefits due to them being quieter and having no tailpipe emissions.
