France-based TotalEnergies, a petrochemical company, has acquired Blue Charge, the electric vehicle (EV) charging network, in Singapore. More than 1,500 charging stations are part of the Blue Charge network, which accounts for over 85 per cent of all charging stations in the country. France-based Bolloré had originally installed the network for its BlueSG electric carsharing service.
TotalEnergies will manage and run the network, which was created in collaboration with the Singapore Land Transport Authority (LTA) and other partners. As part of its Green Plan 2030, Singapore plans to expand its charging infrastructure and capacity, with a goal of 60,000 charge sites by 2030.
