跟進現時東涌電動車泊位數量 Follow up with the issue of increasing parking areas for electric vehicles

近年電動車在香港越趨普及,東涌亦有不少居民已轉用電動車,但有不少車主反映,指區內充電設施不足,部分私人屋苑停車場亦沒有安裝電動車充電器,對車主極為不便。就此,我日前在區議會向環保署跟進,現時東涌的電動車泊位數量及相關政策。

環保署指,現時全港共有約1.8萬架電動車,而公共充電器約有1,000個,當中東涌共有 50 個電動車公共充電器,分佈如下:東薈城 12個;富東 6個;逸東 6個;滿東 25個;迎東 1 個。未來,署方亦將在東涌市政大樓安裝約10個充電器、以及將會發展的馬灣涌公眾停車場內安裝中速充電器。署方在會上指,在2022年前,全港會增加公共充電器至1,800個。

至於私營機構的電動車充電器,現時約有2,000個,在問到如何吸引更多私人屋苑,參加政府用以資助私人住宅樓宇安裝電動車充電設施,而於去年10月推出的「EV屋苑充電易資助計劃」,署方指在計劃推出後,反應正面,全港共收到超過200份申請,涉及55,000個車位,而當中亦有收到東涌北的私人屋苑查詢計劃內容。

但以上的數字,距離政府早前公布的《香港電動車普及化路線圖》,當中目標2025年有超過15萬個車位設充電設施,似乎有一段相當距離。


Electric vehicles have been a trend in Hong Kong for the last few years and a number of Tung Chung residents have also joined the eco-friendly trend by purchasing an electric vehicle. Yet, we heard voices expressing their dissatisfaction with electric vehicle supports and charging facilities in Tung Chung district, including some of the private estates. Hence, I have been discussing with the Environment Protection Department on the issue of increasing parking areas for electric vehicles and the updating related policies.

According to the Environment Protection Department, there are around 18,000 electric vehicles in Hong Kong and around a thousand public charging stations, 50 of them are located in Tung Chung: 12 in Citygate, 6 in Fu Tung Estate, 6 in Yat Tung Estate, 25 in Mun Tung Estate and 1 in Ying Tung Estate. In the future, there will be 10 more public charging stations located in Tung Chung Municipal Services Building and the up-coming Ma Wan Chung public parking will also install charging stations. The officers claimed that the total number of public charging stations will increase to 1,800 before 2022.

For commercial charging stations, there are around 2,000 of them in Hong Kong for the time being and our concern should be on how we could encourage private estates to participate in EV-charging at Home Subsidy Scheme launched in October last year, which subsidise private estates to install vehicle-charging stations. The Environment Protection Department said that they have received over 200 applications for 55,000 parking spaces and inquiries from private estate in Tung Chung North.

However, the data above showed that the government has to work harder on keeping their words, installing over 150,000 vehicle-charging stations in Hong Kong by 2025, on the Hong Kong Roadmap on Popularisation of Electric Vehicles.
