By the end of 2023, Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), the energy provider in Malaysia aims to finish building 10 electric vehicle charging stations

The growth of electric vehicles in numerous countries has prompted adjustments in infrastructure to facilitate the integration of EVs into the mainstream transportation sector. In particular, there has been a significant increase in electric two-wheelers in Asia, such as small scooters and motorbikes that are primarily designed for commuting purposes.

As such, the national energy provider, Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), has set aside RM 90 million, which amounts to approximately $20 million USD, to construct charging stations for EVs. Being the sole electric utility company in Malaysia and also the biggest publicly traded energy firm in Southeast Asia, TNB’s efforts to strengthen its initiatives for EVs could potentially accelerate the shift towards EVs in Malaysia.

TNB’s decision to invest a significant amount of resources in building charging stations is intended to enhance the capabilities of EVs, which allows the drivers and riders to travel further distance without worrying about the range of electric vehicles. According to a report by iMotorbike, a Malaysian motoring publication, Mohd Junaizee Mohd Noor, the project management director for EVs, mentioned that TNB has already completed the construction of three EV charging stations and aims to add seven more by the end of 2023. “TNB is planning to have a total of 10 DC EV charging stations on highways by the end of this year,” he stated in the article.
