The site of the upcoming SJ Campus, will allow up to 250 drivers to park and charge their EVs at a time.

Surbana Jurong has entered into an agreement with SP Group (SP) to install electric vehicle (EV) charging points at Surbana Jurong Campus, the group’s upcoming new global headquarters located in the Jurong Innovation District (JID). This public EV charging hub will eventually allow up to 250 drivers to park and charge their vehicles at a time. 

When completed, the on-campus EV charging hub is expected to be the largest in Southeast Asia. At launch, Surbana Jurong and SP will install a mix of nine fast and slow charging points and ramp-up to 36 charging points within the next 18 months. Upon completion of the initial 36 charging points, the two parties have agreed to progress the installation of more chargers in tandem with market demand for electric vehicles. Making potentially 250 parking lots at Surbana Jurong Campus EV-ready involves building the required electrical infrastructure at the outset, with a view to a 100-percent EV future.

To charge, EV drivers simply need to download the SP app. This will enable them to seamlessly locate the nearest available charging point, charge, track the charging progress, and make payment. SP operates Singapore’s largest public fast-charging EV network with over 500 charging points across more than 100 locations island-wide. 

Surbana Jurong Campus is designed to meet Singapore’s Building and Construction Authority’s Green Mark Platinum (Super Low Energy) building certification. As a living lab, the campus will pilot a wide range of sustainable solutions including onsite photovoltaics generating over 300MWH annually, 100 percent green area replacement, and a self-shading façade that maximizes natural light while reducing solar heat gain.
