Taiwan to set up over 3,000 charging stations to support growing number of EVs

Posted on : 14 Feb, 2018


Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) plans to add 3,310 electric-vehicle (EV) charging stations across Taiwan in the course of next five years. Taiwan had already installed 1,700 electric vehicle charging stations in 2017. The new additions will increase the number of EV charging stations in Taiwan to over 5000. 

Taiwan is focused on cutting CO2 emissions and air pollution and is planning to popularise electric vehicles. The planned expansion of EV charging stations will help to support about 226,000 electric vehicles – anticipated to ply on Taiwan’s roads by 2022.

State-owned oil company CPC Corp Taiwan will build 1,000 EV charging stations – with the help of government funds. The remaining 2,310 stations are expected to be set-up in parking lots near railway stations and other areas.

The ministry has also confirmed that the Industrial Development Bureau will provide subsidies of up to TWD 300,000 (USD 10,131) to install electric vehicle charging stations at PX Mart chain stores and 7-11 convenience stores.

Taiwan aims to phase out gasoline-powered motorcycles in Taiwan by 2035. To meet this target, Taiwan has planned to replace the motorcycles and scooters used by government agencies with electric-powered versions over the next five years. 

To promote electric motorcycles, the ministry, in 2009, had installed 1,800 charging stations for electric motorcycles across Taiwan. The government also launched a trial run of electric cars and buses in 2011.

More about EV charging stations will be discussed at CMT’s Battery, EV & Storage APAC on 25-26 April, 2018 in Bangkok
