1) How do ChargePorts charge EV and UDV?
EV (Electric Vehicles) are charged manually using a standard Type 2 connector with 22kW AC power. Whereas, UDV (Unmanned Delivery Vehicles) are charged autonomously with wireless inductive charging technology.
2) How is the ChargePort carbon neutral?
ChargePorts supplement energy from the grid with a renewable energy source, such as solar, to offset carbon emissions (based on grid emission factor) to attain carbon neutrality.
3) What could a profitable venture entail for you?
Firstly, income is generated by UDV operators paying for the electricity used to charge their UDV fleet. Secondly, rental income is earned from housing UDV fleet when they are not in use.
4) Why is owning a "petrol station" of the future important?
The physical and safety limitations of a petrol station is removed, as we do not require a tank to store flammable fuel. This allows for the transformation of under-utilised areas like parking lots to become "petrol stations" of the future, as Singapore aims to phase out ICE (Internal combustion Engine) vehicles by 2040.
