The opening remarks were given by the president of InterEnergy Group, Mr. Rolando González-Bunster; who stated: “We have a strong commitment to clean energy, contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals. The time has come for a real, energetic, and tangible transition, and electric mobility is part of this change. We want to be at the forefront of this transformation with initiatives that join forces to help society be part of this change. Our new initiative, Evergo, fulfills our dream of a more sustainable future than ever”.
The event was attended by distinguished guests, including the Prime Minister, The Honorable Andrew Holness; the Minister of Energy, Science and Technology, Hble. Daryl Vaz; and the Minister of Transport and Mining, Hble. Robert Montague. Also, the British High Commissioner, His Excellency Mr. Asif Ahmad; and the President and CEO of EVPower Jamaica Limited, Mr. Wayne McKenzie, were present. EVPower Jamaica Limited is responsible for the island-wide deployment of the network of charging stations for electric vehicles.
Evergo CEO in Jamaica, Wayne McKenzie ,echoed the sentiments of the InterEnergy President and reiterated his vision for a cleaner environment and more sustainable and reliable mobility: “In Jamaica, Evergo is entering a space where there are more chargers than electric vehicles, but the reality of the situation is this: it is a commitment to change and the foresight to see where, as a company, we will transform this country into a cleaner environment, which will cause a reduction in the operating cost for those who own electric vehicles”.
InterEnergy has already installed more than 250 charging stations in the Dominican Republic, has another 60 destined for Jamaica and expects to reach 200 units in Panama before the end of the year. In support of Jamaica’s National Energy Policy and its 2030 goal to promote the importation of more fuel-efficient vehicles, InterEnergy anticipates the full implementation of Evergo’s first phase of installation to drive the government’s transition to a greener sector and profitable.
