CelcomDigi, a leading telco in Malaysia, has partnered with global energy and infrastructure and technology company Yinson Holdings Berhad to develop cutting-edge electric vehicle (EV) services and infrastructure in the country, accelerating EV and green energy adoption.

Through this partnership, Yinson will be able to use CelcomDigi's extensive 4G LTE and 5G network to improve the connectivity of chargEV, Malaysia's largest charge point station, as well as for rydeEV and drivEV in the eMobility space. 

Both companies will also work together to develop new solutions that will provide customers with simpler access to innovative, clean technology such as eBikes, electric automobiles, EV charging stations and the integration of solar infrastructure.

Datuk Idham Nawawi, chief executive officer of CelcomDigi, highlighted the company's commitment to being Malaysia's digital enabler, saying, “This is a significant milestone in our long-standing partnership with Yinson — the first time in Malaysia that a telecommunication service provider teams up with a global energy infrastructure and technology company to jointly innovate the way we bring EV services to consumers. The automotive industry is undergoing radical transformation, with automakers agreeing that the next five years will bring about more change than the previous three decades, driven by the significant possibilities brought about by electric vehicles in particular and green technology in general.”

He also emphasized the importance of boosting green-tech adoption to achieve Malaysia's energy goals, as specified in the New Industrial Master Plan 2030.

Meanwhile, Lim Chern Yuan, Yinson's group chief executive officer, reiterated the importance of connectivity and creative technologies in determining the future of transportation: “Connectivity and innovative technology are the building blocks of the efficient, clean and equitable transportation system of the future. To this end, we are pleased to join hands with Malaysia’s largest mobile network operator, CelcomDigi, further supported by progressive policies by the Malaysian government. Together, we hope to put clean, integrated transportation solutions into the hands of everyday Malaysians, bringing us collectively closer to achieving the nation’s net zero goals."
