Gamuda Land, the real estate division of Gamuda Bhd, and Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) have partnered to construct two electron stations for electric vehicle (EV) charging at Gamuda Land's real estate development projects in Selangor.
Both businesses signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to build the nation's first electron stations in southern Klang Valley's Gamuda Cove and northern Klang Valley's Gamuda Gardens for residents of the developments and guests at Gamuda Cove's aquatic theme park.
By serving drivers by 2025, the stations will hasten the nation's EV ecosystem and infrastructure development, advancing both firms' commitments to sustainability.
Future electron stations will be run by rooftop solar panels, which will assist offset grid electricity and promote a better environment.
All car brands, including hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and fully electric vehicles, will be able to use these electric charging stations, which come with both AC and DC fast chargers. Similar to regular gas stations, the electron stations will provide a variety of amenities including restaurants, coffee shops, and more to cater to drivers waiting for their cars to charge.
Datuk Megat Jalaluddin, the TNB's chief strategy and initiatives officer The MoU, according to Megat Hassan, will enable TNB and Gamuda Land to work together to boost EV adoption in Malaysia and meet the country's goal of having net zero emissions by 2050.
The stations will also enable both businesses to increase their continuous efforts to meet their environmental, social, and governance goals while sustaining economic development.
According to Gamuda Land COO Chu Wai Lune, urban transportation accounts for 23% of carbon emissions, so it only makes sense that one of its main goals in the design of its masterplan is to ensure that its developments are equipped with facilities to support sustainable modes of urban transportation.
