More than just an electric vehicle (EV) charger, eMobility opens doors to a spectrum of players involved in the Electric Vehicle (EV) infrastructure, such as car manufacturers, commercial fleets and public network operators. eMobility will revolutionise the market with new business models and energy management strategies that can result in up to 30% reduction in CAPEX and OPEX. An optimised microgrid management supported by battery storage will also help EV providers achieve zero blackouts, apply tariff management, demand charge management and provide demand response advice to requests by commercial aggregators.
In collaboration with SkillsFuture Singapore and Nanyang Polytechnic, a “Electric Vehicle and Charging System” course will provide engineers and specialists with the knowledge to sharpen their skills in designing, setting up and configuring EV charging systems, preparing them for new opportunities in the growing EV market.
The Land Transport Authority of Singapore has also recently launched the Electric Vehicle Common Charger Grant (ECCG) to encourage the installation of shared EV chargers in non-landed private residences (NLPRs), such as condominiums and private apartments. As part of the early adoption incentive, the grant will co-fund installation costs of 2,000 EV chargers. The ECCG will be available until 31 December 2023, or until 2,000 chargers have been supported by co-funding, whichever is earlier.
