A nationwide electric vehicle (EV) charging standard
TR25:2016 has been established for the EV charging system in Singapore. The Land Transport Authority (LTA) and the Economic Development Board (EDB), which co-chair the Electro-Mobility Singapore (EMS) taskforce, announced that Type 2 AC and Combo-2 DC charging systems would be adopted as the National Public Charging Standards (NPCS).
In March 2020, as part of
Government’s commitment to create a sustainable transport system, LTA and EMA
jointly announced the addition of CHAdeMO charging systems as an Optional
Public Charging Standards (OPCS) for EV. This enables providers of EV chargers to
bring in a larger range of public charging options for EV users and supports
the wider adoption of EVs in Singapore.
To ensure safe use of the public charging infrastructure, a battery electric vehicle (BEV) or plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) has to be equipped with:
- A matching Type 2 vehicle inlet (for AC charging
- A Combo-2 vehicle inlet (for AC and DC
- A matching Type 2 vehicle inlet (for AC
charging) and a CHAdeMO vehicle inlet (for DC charging)
Below are the typical
connectors and inlets.
Note: A vehicle connector is affixed at the end of the charging cable. This will connect to the vehicle inlet installed on the EV to enable charging.
Under the Singapore Green Plan 2030, there is a comprehensive EV Roadmap to ramp up efforts for EV adoption. Get more information on the EV Roadmap, and learn how LTA drives the adoption of EVs and accelerates the deployment of EV charging infrastructure.
