Petronas Dagangan Bhd (PetDag) entered into a three-way partnership with GreenTech Malaysia and TNB Energy Services Sdn Bhd (TNBES), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB), to install ChargEV charging stations by 2018. Well on track, Malaysia already has 250 of these charging stations up and running. This is a great stride in the right direction, given that low carbon mobility solutions have the potential to provide over RM 49,920 worth of savings for owners across ten years.
GreenTech Malaysia has facilitated the increase in the number of EV charging stations across the nation through the initiative ChargEV. A higher number of public charging stations would incline more drivers to purchase an EV. These charging stations are also located at strategic locations such as hotels, shopping malls, and petrol stations, which in turn help businesses thrive. A total of 132,307 charging hours and 47,502 charging sessions were recorded as of 2018, a 51% growth from 2017.
While driving public access to such charging stations, GreenTech Malaysia has also been fully invested in bringing EV charging stations to more Malaysian homes through ChargEV as well. This is why GreenTech Malaysia has forged strategic partnerships with automotive giants such as BMW, so as to drive this movement forward. Investing both time and resources in furthering both private and public access for EV drivers, GreenTech Malaysia intends to cover all grounds.
