Local tech startup Powered by RISE has launched its new product called ONE RISE for Malaysia’s growing electric vehicle market.
Powered by RISE said in statement that the development of the charging stations involved developing its own chargers and applications, utilising the IT know-how, which enabled the company to tailor its products according to customers’ requirements.
ONE RISE offers a range of advanced features including an integrated payment system that supports E-wallet payment methods, a user-friendly interface, and safety features such as an automatic shut-off mechanism that prevents overcharging and overheating.
Additionally, ONE RISE is dubbed as the first charging station to implement flooding and fire detection/prevention systems, providing users with additional peace of mind. It also features an upgraded AI camera that enhances security measures, including license plate detection and motion tracking. This added layer of security ensures the car and user’s safety.
Founder and director of Powered by RISE, Kray Chong said, “To accelerate the global transition towards sustainable transportation, it is crucial to provide electric vehicle users with convenient and hassle-free charging experiences. With our ‘Powered by RISE’ solutions, EV users can easily initiate charging sessions by downloading our All-in-One app from Google Play Store or Apple Apps Store.
“The app is simple and offers real-time monitoring of energy transfer, remaining charging time, and session cost, all accessible from their smartphone, which further enhances user convenience. This innovative solution represents a significant milestone in promoting the widespread adoption of EVs and a greener future.”
As of 2023, Powered by RISE has already installed more than 14 EV charging ports, with an additional 130 units nationwide in the pipeline.
Malaysia’s push for sustainable transportation in 2023
The automotive industry in Malaysia is projected to make a significant contribution of RM104.2 billion to the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP) by 2030. This forecast is in line with the government’s efforts, including the Energy Efficient Vehicle (EEV) and Low Carbon Mobility Blueprint (LCMB), aimed at encouraging the adoption of electric vehicles and establishing a reliable charging infrastructure.
To support the growth of the EV industry, Malaysia has been directing investments towards research and development. A noteworthy example is the facilitation of Tesla’s entry into the market through the BEV Global Leaders initiative, which aims to bolster demand and further promote the development of the entire ecosystem to facilitate EV adoption. This move towards sustainable transportation is an encouraging development for Malaysia’s transportation industry.
“With the government’s push for greater adoption of electric vehicles (EVs), there is an expected increase in demand for charging solutions. Powered by RISE remains steadfast in our commitment to providing high-quality charging solutions for electric vehicles. Leveraging years of industry experience, we have established a reputation for delivering innovative and dependable charging products that cater to the specific needs of EV owners.
“Our charging station is powered by sustainable energy sources, reflecting our commitment to environmental sustainability and facilitating the transition to a clean energy ecosystem. Through our efforts, we aim not only to promote the use of renewable energy but also to encourage the adoption of eco-friendly practices and pave the way for a more sustainable future in Malaysia,” added Chong.
