Yinson GreenTech and ComfortDelGro ENGIE launch largest combined EV charging network across Singapore and Malaysia

Malaysia’s largest charge point operator Yinson GreenTech (“YGT”) and one of Singapore’s leading charge point operators ComfortDelGro ENGIE (“CDG ENGIE”), have inked a partnership agreement that will offer motorists across both sides of the Causeway a combined network of over 1,000 charge points.

YGT currently operates close to 400 charge points in Malaysia under its chargEV brand, while CDG ENGIE has over 600 in Singapore – making this the largest combined Singapore-Malaysia electric vehicle (“EV”) charging network. With this partnership, motorists can seamlessly discover, activate and make payment for the utilisation of charging points through either the chargEV app or the CDG ENGIE EV Charging app.  From today, chargEV app users will have access to all CDG ENGIE charge points, while the CDG ENGIE Charging app will progressively onboard chargEV’s charge points.

Come 2030, the combined network is set to increase to 8,000 – 5,000 charge points in Singapore and 3,000 in Malaysia – and will cement its position as the largest combined EV charging network across Singapore and Malaysia.

The partnership spells greater convenience for EV drivers on long cross-border trips as they can use their current apps to access the extensive network of charge points in Singapore, Malaysia and potentially, further afield; and payments in local currency.

Chief Executive Officer of YGT, Mr Eirik Barclay, said, “This partnership is a major breakthrough for the e-mobility industry in Singapore and Malaysia as it addresses the main growth hurdle, which is range anxiety. It bridges cross-border inter-operability, delivering accessible charging infrastructure and the best ‘charge anywhere’ e-roaming experience to EV drivers travelling between Singapore and Malaysia.”

Mr Freddie Chew, General Manager of CDG ENGIE, said, “This partnership with YGT marks a significant milestone for CDG ENGIE, which turns two today. Not only are we growing locally, we’re excited about extending our reach across the Causeway in our commitment to promoting green energy and sustainable mobility. We believe this expanded network will accelerate the transition to EVs and contribute to the net zero ambitions of both nations.”
