EV Charging in Post Covid-19 Economy
By now, it is clear that this pandemic will have intensely damaging effects on both the Malaysian macroeconomy as well as on the economic welfare of the nation. Long before the partial lockdown measures in Malaysia, the outbreak Covid-19 had created wide-ranging supply chain distribution that have reverberated across the globe.
The impact of the Covid-19 crisis has effectively speeded the energy transition in the short-term, providing a unique opportunity for power generation to adopt far higher levels of renewables in their fuel mix. The energy transition is a pathway towards transformation of the global energy sector from fossil fuel-based to zero-carbon by the second half of this century. It is without a doubt that this transition needs to happen sooner rather than later to negate the effects of climate change and even revitalize the environment. Of course, making this enormous shift in energy infrastructure will be challenging but it will have significant benefits in the long run.
Another clear fact of the transition is the continuously falling costs of new energy technologies including electric vehicles, solar farm, wind farm and batteries & energy storages. The cheapest source of electricity in almost every country in the world today is renewables. For example, electric vehicles are a cheaper way to run a transport system and the retail price of an EV is going to reach price parity with that of traditional vehicles.
Pestech Energy Sdn Bhd. is one of the leaders in the field of electric vehicle charging solutions. The strategic focus highlights the importance of the technologies behind Electric Vehicles and Energy-efficient vehicles (EEV) as the future of transportation.
