GEF is dedicated to assisting nations in developing this all-encompassing strategy. Early work on Saint Lucia’s e-mobility project entails determining its economic viability as well as creating a legislative framework and financial models.
A regional platform and international thematic working groups will support stakeholders along the way as they address issues like how to safely dispose of the lithium-ion batteries used in EVs, integration with the national grid, and setting up a network of charging stations.
Island nation of Saint Lucia in the Caribbean. It is the second-largest island in the Lesser Antilles’ Windward group and is situated roughly 21 miles (34 kilometres) northeast of Saint Vincent and 24 miles (39 kilometres) south of Martinique.
An electric vehicle charging station is a piece of technology that can be used to refuel electric cars, neighbourhood electric cars, and plug-in hybrids.
EVs can improve public health and reduce ecological harm by reducing the emissions that cause pollution and environmental change. When you charge your EV using sustainable energy sources like solar or wind, your emissions are lowered even further.
A 33/11KV cable and any necessary gear are included in the infrastructure requirements for EV charging stations. There must be sufficient civil construction. For electric vehicles, there ought to be enough room for entrance and leave as well as charging.
The Saint Lucia EV Charger Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
At the JQ Mall in Rodney Bay, Saint Lucia Electricity Services Limited (LUCELEC) has installed an electric vehicle charging station. It serves as a trial run for a corporate diversification initiative that will eventually be handled by a subsidiary business that LUCELEC is establishing.
A Corporate Diversification Team led by LUCELEC Financial Controller is currently in charge of the project. The electric charging station would let owners of electric cars buy a card that would work like a credit card to charge their cars.
People who own electric vehicles must register with the subsidiary firm in order to receive a card that, when inserted into the station, will enable them to charge their vehicles.
These cards must be prepaid, and fees based on their value will be applied. The charging station would also be quicker and more convenient for owners, even though they will still be able to plug their cars into outlets at home, according to LUCELEC’s financial controller.
