Korea to install more EV charging ports & mobile robots at parks

As part of the efforts to encourage the supply of environmentally friendly vehicles, more gas stations in Korea are reportedly expected to install charging stations for electric vehicles. According to government officials, businesses will be able to use autonomous mobile robots in parks, which earlier were only permitted in indoor restaurants.

Following the first targets (50 items), which were revealed on July 28, a task force on deregulations headed by the Ministry of Economy and Finance revealed the second stage of deregulatory targets (36 items).

Fuel stations are a notable target since their regulations are primarily focused on the security of automobiles powered by internal combustion engines, such as diesel and gasoline. Due to this, many petrol stations have been physically prevented from installing EV charging stations.

The new regulations allow gas stations to install EV connections if the buildings are fitted with safety features.

The move, according to policymakers, will increase convenience for EV owners and boost the EV and charging facility sectors.

Additionally, as long as they possess a license for their charging business, consumers will be permitted to lend their personal EV charging connections to sharing platform-oriented firms.

Moreover, this will result in more charging stations being available around the country.

Meanwhile, the government has also decided to let EV charging stations sell electricity generated by solar power generation facilities and other sources of renewable energy.

According to credible sources, the rules governing autonomous mobile robots will also be relaxed. Businesses will be permitted to use robots at parks for cleaning and serving. But the task force stipulated that to ensure public safety, the robot's weight must be less than 60kg.

The government wants to make autonomous mobility robots more widely operational in metropolitan areas on mid-and long-term basis.

Policymakers will boost the number of specifically designated drone zones in order to commercialize drone firms, despite the fact that just 33 zones are currently operational nationwide.

Six major requirements, including flight approval as well as safety certification, are eased or waived off in the special zones.
