Public Charging Project Marks ‘A New Era’ for Electric Mobility in Singapore
As Open Standards Technology Provider Partners with BMW and CapitaLand
Greenlots is talking up its role in electric vehicle charging infrastructure in Singapore, where a partnership with a major real estate developer and BMW “marks a new era… as it signals the commitment to expand open-standards based electric vehicle charging for public use.”
Greenlots says to that it’s “the largest collaboration between a leading real estate developer and a premium automobile manufacturer to install public EV charging infrastructure.”
Greenlots is a leading advocate and provider of open standards technology solutions for EV charging networks, allowing equipment from different EVSE/electric vehicle supply equipment suppliers to communicate. The partner for the Singapore project is Singapore-based CapitaLand, which according to Greenlots is one of Asia’s largest real estate companies.
45 Chargers at 31 Locations
Greenlots, BMW Group Asia and CapitaLand have installed Level 2 public charging stations at five strategic locations in Singapore’s central business district. A second phase is being implemented at CapitaLand shopping malls, including four additional locations downtown. The completion of phases one and two will bring the total number of public charging stations in Singapore to 45, located across 31 public locations.
“This installment marks a significant milestone for electric mobility in Singapore, as we lay a sustainable foundation for the sector to thrive,” Greenlots senior VP Lin Khoo said in a release.
OEM and Developer Support
“We are pleased to be partnering with industry leaders as we bolster open-standards based public EV charging for Singapore,” he said. “A robust charging network needs support from car companies and the real estate sector.”
CapitaLand is known for high-end properties, he told F&F, so the partnership with BMW to foster the EV market in Singapore makes good sense. He notes that Greenlots itself was founded in Singapore. The firm now has operations in 13 countries
Greenlots earlier this summer publicized its growing work with Kia in support of networked EVSE at Kia dealerships in California, Oregon, Washington, Texas and Georgia (F&F, July 8).
