Launch of First Public Solar EV Charging Station in Malaysia
Under the GEF5-UNIDO initiative, GreenTech Malaysia partnered with PLUS Malaysia Berhad for the implementation of this project, leading to the country’s first public solar EV charging station launched at Ayer Keroh Overhead Bridge Restaurant (Southbound) in 2018. The system was designed, configured and installed by First Energy Networks Sdn. Bhd, as a subcontractor of GreenTech Malaysia.
The Solar PV Energy Storage System’s Fast Charger is an integrated system with PV panels, an energy storage system (Lithium-ion Battery Pack) and an AC grid power supply as back-up. Able to operate in both standalone (primary) mode and grid connected (secondary) mode, it also allows online real-time monitoring of the system parameters as it is integrated with an Energy Monitoring System (EMS).
