EV sharing in Singapore: The sovereign city-state will see the debut of its first islandwide EV sharing programme in December. Operator BlueSG, a subsidiary of French conglomerate Bolloré, wants to start with 80 EVs and 30 charging stations. Within three years, the fleet shall grow to 1,000 electric cars and the infrastructure network to 500 stations with a total of 2,000 charging points.
Electrifying South Australia: Eight fast charging stations have been inaugurated in Adelaide – among them four Tesla Superchargers. The new stations are part of a network developed in South Australia that allows Tesla drivers to commute between the north of the state, its capital Adelaide and Brisbane.
Equipment for fuel cell electric buses: For 8.3m dollars, the Californian SunLine Transit Agency has ordered a combined hydrogen PEM electrolyser and H2 station fuelling solutions from Proton Onsite and Nel Hydrogen Solutions. With an expected hydrogen capacity of up to 900 kg per day, SunLine intends to fuel its growing fleet of fuel cell electric buses in the Palm Springs area.
China’s 5-km radius rule: The rather poor Guizhou province will see an extensive EV charging network in urban areas in order to catch up with richer regions in energy conservation. By 2020, the provincial government targets one charging point within a 5-km radius in every county-level city. In Beijing and Shanghai, charging facilities are available within a radius of less than 5 km.
