Building owners offered free EV charging points alongside solar or efficiency upgrades

Meanwhile in Singapore…

Sustainable energy developer Urban Renewables has offered free electric vehicle charging units for building owners who adopt its solar rooftop or energy efficiency projects. The deal, under the brand Urban Charge, will be available to building owners in the commercial and industrial sector as well as private apartment complexes.

Patricia Eng, Urban Renewables general manager, said,“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 normalizing electric vehicle adoption”.

Edgare Kerkwijk, managing director of the group, which is active across Southeast Asia,, said “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.”
