Gentari signs roaming agreement with JomCharge and chargEV networks for over approximately 70% of EV charging points in Malaysia
Clean energy solutions provider Gentari Sdn Bhd (Gentari) via its wholly-owned subsidiary, Gentari Green Mobility Sdn Bhd has signed a tripartite roaming agreement with EV Connection Sdn Bhd and Yinson GreenTech (YGT) through its subsidiary, Green EV Charge Sdn Bhd, to enable cross-tracking and cross-access charging of electric vehicles (EV) on the Gentari (via Setel), JomCharge and charge mobile apps.
Announced at Automechanika Kuala Lumpur 2023, at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre on 16 March 2023, this collaboration gives EV users the ability to locate a combined total of over 550 charging points across the country. This represents more than two-thirds of all available charging points in Malaysia, with Gentari operating over 150 charging points, chargEV operating close to 300, and JomCharge owning 100 charging points.
“To accelerate EV adoption in Malaysia, it is essential to prioritize the customer experience. Therefore, by June, users will have the added benefit of cross-access charging, giving them access to approximately 70% of all charging points in Malaysia,” Shah Yang Razalli, Gentari’s Chief Green Mobility Officer said.
“Our fingers are always on the pulse of consumers’ needs, and we are taking the initiative by coming together to make your life simpler. Via this tri-network partnership, we give greater range confidence to users when driving in Malaysia, as they can locate the entire charging network of the three service providers via Setel, JomCharge or chargEV,” Managing Director of EV Connection, Ir Lee Yuen How added.
Srinivas Tati, the Senior Vice President of Business Development for YGT, commented, “YGT is always committed to working with like-minded partners who share our vision of providing a better user experience and accelerating the adoption of EVs.
