ABB has won an ASEAN Energy Award for the installation of the first-of-its-kind public EV charging station, supporting the Malaysian government’s efforts to accelerate wider adoption of electric mobility.

ABB`s Terra 53 fast charging station, located in Subang Jaya, Malaysia, reduces typical charging time from 2 hours, using conventional public AC chargers, to around 15 minutes for electric vehicles with storage capacities of approximately 24kWh. The station utilizes electricity generated by a rooftop solar installation at the ABB facility, providing a 100 percent carbon neutral mobility solution. It reflects ABB’s commitment to strengthening the country’s EV ecosystem and to reducing carbon emissions.

ASEAN Secretary General Lim Jock Hoi, presented the award to ABB at the 36th ASEAN Ministers on Energy Meeting, (AMEM) Official Dinner held in Singapore, on October 29, 2018.

Malaysia targets deployment of 100,000 electric cars, 2,000 electric buses and 125,000 charging stations by 2030. The expansion is in line with efforts to reduce dependence on fossil fuel in the transportation sector and to drive down carbon emissions by 45 percent by 2030 in compliance with the Paris climate accord.

“The opportunity for sustainable mobility is immense,” said Frank Muehlon, Managing Director for electric vehicle charging infrastructure at ABB. “Every day, new smarter mobility alternatives are challenging conventional vehicles and the use of fossil fuels. The award recognizes our efforts to take our technology leadership to the next level to find new solutions to catalyze this shift in Malaysia and across the fast developing ASEAN region, whether in cars and buses, trains or ships.”

ABB installed the Terra 53 fast charger last year at its premises in Subang Jaya outside of Kuala Lumpur. It is available daily to EV drivers at zero cost as a 'drive-thru' convenience, instead of the traditional approach of using parking bays.

Over 8,000 fast chargers, including high power chargers up to 350 kW, have been installed by ABB across 68 countries, more chargers than any other manufacturer. In addition to Malaysia, the chargers can be found in the region in Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.

Fortune Magazine recently ranked ABB #8 on its list of companies that are “changing the world” for the advances it has made in e-mobility and EV charging.

ABB received the award as a special submission under the renewable energy category and was amongst over 60 other recipients. The winners were selected based on their projects, which involved innovation or best practices in the field of renewable energy research, development, demonstration, and commercialization. Special focus was given to projects that were relevant to ASEAN Member States in terms of regional interests and cooperation on sustainable energy.

The ASEAN Centre for Energy (aseanenergy.org) is an intergovernmental organization established by Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

ABB (abb.com) is a pioneering technology leader in power grids, electrification products, industrial automation and robotics and motion, serving customers in utilities, industry and transport & infrastructure globally. Continuing a history of innovation spanning more than 130 years, ABB today is writing the future of industrial digitalization with two clear value propositions: bringing electricity from any power plant to any plug and automating industries from natural resources to finished products. As title partner in ABB Formula E, the fully electric international FIA motorsport class, ABB is pushing the boundaries of e-mobility to contribute to a sustainable future. ABB operates in more than 100 countries with about 147,000 employees.
