Electric Vehicles (EV) charging infrastructure provision
To future-proof new development sites in Singapore, the Successful Tenderer is required to include active and passive provision of EV charging points for the proposed development.
Active provision refers to charging points that are fully wired and ready for use by EVs. Passive provision refers to catering of sufficient electrical power at the consumer switch room(s) and/or substation(s) to allow more chargers to be installed and activated easily when demand increases in future.
As a start, the Successful Tenderer is to ensure at least 15% of the total car-park lots can minimally support 3-Phase AC Type 2 chargers with power output of 7kW per charging point (i.e. passive provision), of which at least 1% must be installed with EV charging points (i.e. active provision). The detailed requirements are set out in Clause 7.2.5 to 7.2.7 of the Conditions and Requirements of Relevant Competent Authorities and Public Utility Licensees.
