According to Hong Kong resident and Brammo Enertia owner Matt, he rode his bike to this parking garage to find the first such charging station in Hong Kong:
I rode into the parking garage to find the first “plug & drive” electric vehicle charging station in Hong Kong. Found it. plugged in and paid via smart card. charged for 30 mins while I ateMcDonalds (not so neat)…and then found out that this was the first time anyone charged an electric vehicle here.
The charging station was provided by the CLP Group. From a recent press release:
CLP today officially launched Hong Kong’s first EV Quick Charger, marking a new milestone in promoting a wider adoption of EVs in the territory. Over the next six months, CLP will conduct technical trials on the EV Quick Charger and hope that the test result can further the growth of EVs in Hong Kong.
Located at CLP’s Centenary Building on To Wah Road in Jordan, an EV Quick Charger is available for technical trials. EV users, including government departments, corporations, academic and research institutes and individuals are welcome to experience the most advanced charging system in town during the six-month trial period.
By complementing the standard charging stations, CLP believes that the introduction of quick charger will provide more choices and flexibility to EV users which will ultimately help promote the use of EV in Hong Kong.
