Malaysian property developer JLand Group Sdn. Bhd. (JLG) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with clean energy solutions provider Gentari Sdn Bhd (Gentari) to explore renewable energy solutions and accelerate green mobility ecosystem growth at JLG’s projects.

JLG said in a statement on Tuesday that this strategic partnership aims to develop an eco-friendly ecosystem across JLG’s residential, commercial, and industrial projects.

Pursuant to the signing of this MoU, JLG and Gentari will undertake feasibility studies on the integration of Gentari’s renewable energy solutions at selected strategic assets and industrial parks under JLG, while the implementation of the green mobility ecosystem in JLG’s selected projects will commence in the third quarter of 2023.

“Our partnership with Gentari signifies a milestone in our progress towards decarbonisation initiatives and enhanced capabilities in the renewable energy sector,”

“Through our joint effort with Gentari, we are further equipped to act on our continued commitment for sustainable growth,” said Sr Akmal, Director, Real Estate and Infrastructure Division of Johor Corp (JCorp) and Deputy Chairman of JLG.

According to him, the wide-scale deployment of the green mobility and renewable energy ecosystems across the firm’s main developments namely Menara JLand, KOMTAR JBCC, B5 Johor Street Market, Ibrahim International Business District (IIBD) and Bandar Dato’ Onn (BDO), showcases the depth and extent of the partnership’s value creation potential, considering the number of end-users present throughout its operating entities.

As part of the collaboration, JLG and Gentari will also explore the potential installations of an electric vehicle (EV) charging hub at Ibrahim Technopolis (IBTEC) and renewable energy solutions for JLG’s industrial parks.

“With the deployment of these renewable energy solutions and green mobility infrastructure at JLG’s assets and industrial parks, we are advancing clean energy transition through a multi-industry approach,

“This is especially crucial, with JLG’s wide-spread presence and operations in the State of Johor, as we look forward to jointly enhance the energy efficiency of industrial parks, and that of its tenants,” Sr Akmal added.

Sushil Purohit, Gentari’s Chief Executive Officer, said the journey towards achieving Malaysia’s net zero goals will require the whole of society’s efforts.

“As a clean energy company focused on delivering the solutions required to put cleaner energy into action, Gentari seeks to collaborate with leading entities with a broad and diversified portfolio such as JLand Group, to enable efficient implementation of integrated solutions,

“With JLand Group, we are able to simultaneously explore initiatives under our core pillars of Renewable Energy, Hydrogen and Green Mobility, cutting across the electron value chain to create greater value in the path towards net zero,” he added.

As part of the collaboration, Gentari’s vehicle as a service (VaaS) offering will be implemented as a green mobility subscription service at JLG’s residential, commercial and industrial developments, to initiate the adoption of EVs.

Through the introduction of EV fleet subscription by Gentari, JLG seeks to accelerate low-cost investment transition into EV.

JLG is a wholly owned subsidiary of JJCorp, focusing on spearheading the group’s real estate and infrastructure businesses.

JLG’s portfolio spans across diversified real estate activities and investments, including integrated parks, industrial, logistics and data centres.

JLG’s core businesses encompass four strategic areas, namely real estate development, asset lifecycle management, real estate investment and infrastructure and utilities, allowing for strategic value optimization for its businesses and assets across diverse industry presence.
