Installation of 6kW Level 2 Charging Ports at Ninja Kingdom Ise
ENECHANGE Ltd. (hereafter: “the Company”) is pleased to announce the installation of 6kW Level 2 charging ports under its ENECHANGE EV Charge brand at the Ninja Kingdom Ise theme park.
The government aims to make low-emission vehicles 100% of new passenger car sales by 2035. To achieve this, the government plans to increase the installation of EV charging ports to 300,000 by 2030, doubling the previous figure of 150,000. Destination charging in particular is expected to reach between 100,000 to 150,000 ports. To achieve this, installing more than 10,000 charging ports annually is necessary.
The Company aims to invest up to 30 billion yen by 2027 to install 30,000 Level 2 charging ports nationwide, with a focus on destination charging, where electric vehicles can be charged while users spend two to three hours or more at commercial facilities, leisure facilities, accommodations, golf courses, and similar locations.
Ninja Kingdom Ise, located in Ise City, Mie Prefecture, is a theme park featuring 3.5D RPGs, ninja forest adventures, theatrical performances, dining options, and semi-natural hot springs that can be enjoyed by multi-generational families, all set against the backdrop of a life-sized replica of Azuchi Castle and a historic Edo-period garden. A key attraction is on weekends and holidays when the castle’s construction and destruction are recreated through 3D projection mapping and garden lighting. The facility has a parking area that can accommodate up to 1,000 vehicles, and with the future proliferation of EVs and the needs of visiting EV users in mind, they opted for ENECHANGE EV Charge, the leading Level 2 charging port installer. ENECHANGE aims to contribute to the promotion of ecotourism in the Ise-shima area through the use of EVs.
The number of EVs and PHVs per 10,000 people in Mie Prefecture is 31.5, ranking* 9th in Japan. We will continue to contribute to the spread of EV charging infrastructure in cooperation with companies working to create local communities and achieve the SDGs.
*Based on the number of installed EV charging ports (6kW) by a secure app-based service provider (as of August 2023, according to GoGoEV).
