Back in June, it was announced that the government had created a national EV steering committee (NEVSC). Operating under the ambit of the national EV task force (NEVTF), investment, trade and industry (MITI) minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul Aziz said the NEVSC was established to speed up the country’s electro-mobility ambitions.

He said the NEVSC would allow the government to address issues pertaining to the implementation of the EEV ecosystem in quicker fashion by coordinating the direction of all stakeholders and synergising the communication between all relevant parties.

As previously indicated, the steering committee will be led by MITI and involve the participation of various ministries and government agencies, including the finance ministry, transport ministry, the works ministry as well as the ministry of science, technology and innovation (MOSTI).

The composition of the governance structure of the NEVSC and NEVTF was detailed via a panel display seen at the ongoing International Greentech & Eco Products Exhibition and Conference Malaysia (IGEM) at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC).

The NEVSC, which helms the show, is chaired by Tengku Zafrul as MITI minister, with the secretariat made up of senior officials from MITI as well as the Malaysian investment development authority (MIDA). The committee oversees the NEVTF, which is led by the secretary-general (KSU) of MITI, with MIDA again the secretariat.

Below them sit various government ministries and agencies, including the finance ministry (handling government fleet matters), the ministry of local government development (KPKT) and PLANMalaysia (EVSC installation procedures) and the energy commission (ST) and Tenaga Nasional (TNB), the latter duo responsible for matters pertaining to charging point operators (CPO).

      In the past, there were a lot of criticism that the Malaysian government had not come up with a firm policy regarding the nation’s EV roadmap. But when it is doing something about this with an EV steering committee & taskforce, there is now criticism that it’ll waste tax payers money. So, what is the government expected to do now?

    NEVSC need to make it clear what is the actual procedure for EV owners that stay in condos. It’s a confusing situation since Tesla is allowed to have Superchargers in basement parking while condo residents cannot do that? So many EV owners living in condos have to resort to using fast chargers in shopping malls and petrol stations currently.

    The gov should take some time to ponder if they want to FOMO like the European countries with EV.

    Of cause the European can harp on environmental issue with EV. The materials used to build battery are not mined in their countries. They don’t get all the mining pollution. They are mined and processed at our very backyard. Of cause it’s cleaner there. Not to mention how they generate power compared to us.
