KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 12 (NNN-Bernama) -- Petronas Dagangan Bhd (PDB) has entered into a tripartite partnership with Malaysian Green Technology Corporation (GreenTech Malaysia) and TNB Energy Services Sdn Bhd (TNBES) to install 100 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, ChargEV nationwide by 2018.

The parties will also explore a strategic partnership to increase the number of ChargEV stations gradually to cater to market demand, they said in a joint-statement here today.

The partnership agreement was signed during the 8th International Greentech & Eco Products Exhibition and Conference Malaysia (IGEM 2017) here, today.

"PDB will also look into installing solar photovoltaic (PV) panels at 100 selected stations, therefore, the energy used to power the ChargEV will be fully renewable and completely carbon-free, making it truly green."

The partnership was an extension from the memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed in 2016 between PDB and GreenTech Malaysia to install 66 ChargEV stations.

To date, 55 stations have been installed at Petronas stations nationwide.
