On Monday, the company said that the Royal Dutch Shell is launching electric vehicle chargers at gas stations in Singapore, its first such lineup in Southeast Asia.
In a statement, Electric Car Charging Service, ‘Shell Recharge’, will be available at 10 Shell gas stations in Singapore by October, this year or about 20% of its city-state retail network.
The company said a study commissioned by Shell on consumer behavior of electric vehicles showed that 52% of Singaporeans are prevented from buying or using an electric car because they think there are not enough charging stations in Singapore.
“To meet the nation’s climate action goals, Singapore needs more and cleaner energy solutions for energy life, businesses and transportation sustainably,” said Aw Kah Peng, Shell Companies’ country chairman at Singapore.
He added that chargers typically provide from 0% to 80% load in about 30 minutes, and are compatible with most electric vehicles in Singapore.
Shell plans to provide more such low-carbon power solutions available in Singapore in the months and years ahead, she added./Investing.com
