City Energy Pte Ltd, a Singapore-based sole piped town gas provider, has introduced Go by City Energy, an electric vehicle (EV) charging service to be offered across Singapore and Malaysia with just one mobile application, making it the first EV charging service provider to do so.
Its official launch was supported by an agreement signed between Go by City Energy and EV Connection to see the extension of connectivity into Malaysia.
In a statement, City Energy’s chief executive officer Perry Ong commented, "Go will be the first service in Singapore that extends EV charging capabilities into Malaysia, providing an added convenience for drivers on both sides of the Causeway as well as up and down the North-South Highway.”
"We are confident that both consumers and real estate developers will take advantage of the total value we offer for greener and smarter living."
City Energy first announced plans to offer an EV charging solution as a service when it made public its rebranding from City Gas Pte Ltd on Dec 1, 2021.
Through the new Go by City Energy branding, the EV service provider finances, operates and maintains a network of EV charging stations supported by its mobile app and strategic partnership with EV Connection Sdn Bhd to extend charging connectivity into Malaysia.
Managing director of EV Connection and JomCharge, Lee Yuen How, shared the company’s mission to provide practical solutions to spearhead the green industry in Malaysia. He further shared that “this partnership with Go by City Energy allows both Singapore and Malaysia EV drivers to extend their range across both countries for maximum connectivity and convenience.”
One of Malaysia’s pioneers in EV charging solutions, EV Connection is an authorised EV charging station distributor registered with the Energy Commission, Construction Industry Development Board, Tenaga Nasional Bhd and MyHijau.
