Greenlots, an electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions company and a member of the Shell Group, recently launched the first DC fast charger at a Shell service station in Singapore.
This is the first of 10 DC fast chargers that Greenlots plans to install at Shell service stations in Singapore over the next few months as part of its broader strategy to provide EV charging solutions across all applications throughout Asia and North America.
According to the company, Singapore is a natural location for it to introduce this new service as both companies have significant presence in the island city-state. While its headquarters is now in Los Angeles, Greenlots was founded in Singapore over a decade ago and has since expanded its footprint across the region, deploying EV charging projects with leading utilities, automakers and energy companies. Meanwhile, Shell is one of the largest foreign investors in Singapore and has operated there for 128 years.
Singapore is building up its EV infrastructure to meet an anticipated demand from more drivers, ridesharing companies and commercial fleets converting to electric vehicles. These new, publicly-accessible fast chargers at Shell stations will help accelerate EV adoption particularly among fleets where the total cost of ownership can often be lower for electric vehicles.
