MAI and Greentech Malaysia for Low Carbon Mobility

12 October 2017, Kuala Lumpur – Malaysia Automotive Institute (MAI) and Greentech Malaysia signed a historic Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to streamline and strengthen efforts & initiatives towards lower carbon mobility in Malaysia.


MAI, the agency under the Ministry of International Trade & Industry (MITI) responsible for the development of the automotive industry which includes energy efficient mobility, will enhance collaboration with Greentech Malaysia, the organization under the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water (KeTTHA) tasked to increase penetration of green technology within Malaysia.

Since its formation, MAI has been continuously forwarding Malaysia’s drive towards becoming a regional Energy Efficient Vehicle (EEV) hub, which includes the manufacturing and aftersales development for vehicle with efficient internal combustion engines (ICE), hybrid technology, and alternative powertrains such as battery or fuel cell electric vehicles (EVs and FCVs).

Greentech Malaysia on the other hand is championing electric vehicle roll out initiatives and is currently the owner of the national EV charging networks with “chargEV” mark.

“Despite the specialisations of MAI and Greentech Malaysia, we often find commonality in our goals, knowledge and resource pool. This MoU is a great example of collaboration, and reduced duplication of limited resources towards the pursuit of greater technology penetration in our ecosystem,” said Datuk Madani Sahari, CEO of MAI.
