SESB: Another 17 solar stations to be built soon
Published on: Friday, March 22, 2019
By: Johan Aziz


Quote:
KENINGAU: Another 17 solar hybrid stations will be built in the State by Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd (SESB), said its General Manager (Generation) Jait Aziz.

Work on the projects, mostly located in islands around Sabah, is expected to begin this year or early next year.
“The projects are in Mantanani, Kampung Sireh, Kampung Selamat, Malawali, Kampung Tigabu, Bahanan/Sharif, Kampung Hujung, Kampung Malalin, Kampung Limau-Limau, Kampung Libaran, Kaniogan, Terusan, Kampung Baru, Kampung Tronglit, Kampung Trongliman, Kampung Maligan and Kampung Long Mio,” Jait told reporters, here, Monday.

He said several villages in the rural areas that could not be connected to the SESB grid would also enjoy electricity supply through the solar hybrid system.

According to him, SESB generates electricity for the rural areas in three ways, namely through the nearest grid, the solar hybrid system and the use of diesel gene-sets, with the largest being the solar hybrid system.

“Last year, we operated 29 solar hybrid stations throughout Sabah, with the cost of maintaining and operating the stations amounting to almost RM20 million.

“But what we collected from the consumers was only around RM2.3 million,” he said during a visit to the SESB solar hybrid system in Pagalungan sub-district, in Pensiangan.

“We also have contractors to take care, monitor and repair the solar systems which can last long if well maintained.

“Monitoring is done on a regular basis every month. We will go the stations and additionally at each station, there is also a caretaker, especially those located in the remote areas,” he said.

According to Jait, electricity supply can be connected to the nearest grid system if it is about 10 to 20 kilometres.

On the payment under the grid and solar system, he said it is the same where consumers are charged according to the SESB grid tariff.

“Whatever generating system, whether solar or the grid, the tariff and payment is the same.

“SESB will continue to work together and support any government initiative in any programme involving electricity supply in the State.

“Our current target is to achieve 95 per cent electricity access throughout Sabah and 99 per cent by 2021, “he said.

Jait said every year SESB would request from the Sabah State Economic Planning Unit (EPU) for a list of the villages still without electricity supply and forward it to the Ministry of Rural Development for the Rural Electricity Supply programme.

“SESB will work closely with the EPU to list out the villages that should be given priority in the provision of electricity supply.”

KUALA LUMPUR: The government will tender out RM3.2 billion renewable energy (RE) and energy efficient projects this year.

Minister of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change (MESTECC) Yeo Bee Yin said the projects included retrofitting up to 50 government buildings devices so as to be more efficient in energy usage.

“The pilot project will involve about RM200 million,” Yeo told reporters at the Greenification of Malaysia dialogue session organised by the Malaysian Industrial Development Finance Bhd (MIDF) here today.

Also present at the media briefing were MIDF group managing director Datuk Charon Mokhzani, MIDF Amanah Investment Bhd deputy chief executive officer Datuk Dominic Silva and head of debts Julie Gwee.

Yeo said there would be an open tender of which companies are invited to submit their bids to retrofit existing government buidings with energy saving devices.

She also said the government had appointed the Securities Commission to form a green financing taskforce to find easier ways for the private sector to raise funds for green projects.

“The SC will submit a report to MESTECC at the end of July and we hope to get its recommendations included in next year’s budget.

“We want to see how we can incentivise more private financing for green projects either through government regularisation or mobilisation of funds,” Yeo said.

Argentina seeking jv with M’sia in renewable energy and nuke energy
Published on: Wednesday, May 15, 2019
By: Bernama


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Argentina is seeking joint venture and cooperation with Malaysia in the field of renewable energy and the peaceful use of nuclear energy, said Vice President Gabriela Michetti.

She said Argentina saw great potential in renewable energy, such as wind and solar power, and has made large investments in the sector in the past.

“The important aspect is that Argentina is now focusing a lot on our renewables. We have made large investments in this sector. However, some of these investments were lost due to bad policies of the previous government,” she said.

She said this to Bernama International News Service in an exclusive interview.

The Vice President was in Kuala Lumpur for a five-day official visit since May 2 (Thursday).

This is the first official visit from the Argentinian side in 22 years since the visits by former President Carlos Menem in 1990 and 1997. The Argentinian embassy was opened in Kuala Lumpur in 1983 while Malaysia opened its embassy in Buenos Aires in 1989.

The World Energy Council lists Argentina as presently possessing more than a dozen wind parks, located in six different provinces, with an aggregate installed capacity of 29.76 MW.

It has been estimated that Patagonia’s wind potential, south of the 42nd Parallel, represents more energy than those contained in the whole of Argentina’s annual crude oil production. Patagonia is a region on the southernmost tip of South America, shared by Argentina and Chile.

Argentina is also experienced in the peaceful use of nuclear energy, Michetti said, considering that the country’s first commercial use of nuclear power began over 45 years ago in 1974, and that the South American country has exported nuclear reactors to the Netherlands, Australia and many other countries.

Currently, it has three nuclear power plants that generate five per cent of the country’s electricity.

Michetti added that Argentina, through its National Institute of Applied Research (Instituto Nacional de Investigacion Aplicada, INVAP) provides the expertise for the energy sector, especially in nuclear energy.

INVAP, established in 1976, specialises in the research and construction of nuclear reactors, radio-isotopes, and other nuclear-related projects. It has built nuclear reactors in Argentina, Algeria, Australia, Egypt and Peru.

Michetti said the private sector, local and foreign investors have realised that Argentina, at present under the government of President Mauricio Macri, had implemented security, transparency and corporate responsibility in tender processes for businesses. – Bernama

M’sia committed to role as biofuel tech player
Published on: Sunday, May 26, 2019
By: Bernama


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: As one the world’s major palm oil producers, Malaysia will continue to play a key role in ensuring that the commodity remains a sustainable and eco-friendly fuel replacement for world markets.

Minister of International Trade and Industry (Miti) Datuk Darell Leiking said in a statement here that palm oil was a viable option to reducing the country’s dependency on fossil fuels, as it had tremendous potential as a renewable energy (RE) source.

As the largest exporter and second largest producer of the palm oil in the world, we sit in a position of ensuring this commodity evolves into an industry that brings much benefits to global market, in particular, the energy and transportation ecosystem,” he added.

Biofuels have recently received significant attention as a viable replacement for fossil fuels.

Apart from the potential as a leading fossil fuel replacement, biofuels are sourced from planted crops, allowing its production to be planned, harvested and renewed sustainably.

This is in comparison to fossil fuels that take millions of years to form and are becoming increasingly scarce.

Furthermore, biofuels have carbon-neutral properties, as planted sources of the fuel consume carbon dioxide as they grow, offsetting the carbon footprint during the process.

Darell further explained that while there had been opposition to the current practices of planting oil palm recently, there was demand and potential for the sector to emerge as an important player in meeting the needs of the energy and transportation sectors.

“Malaysia is equipped with the necessary infrastructure and market size to improve the quality and production of palm-based energy products,” he said.

He also said apart from strong industry support for biodiesel, agencies such as the Malaysia Palm Oil Board, Malaysia Automotive Robotics and IoT Institute and Sirim Bhd had the technological capabilities towards elevating palm oil to become a leading contender for RE globally.

Malaysia introduced B10 biodiesel to the domestic transportation market in December 2018, increasing its blend from seven per cent (B7 Biodiesel) to 10 per cent.

Meanwhile, the National Automotive Policy (NAP), which is currently undergoing review, is expected to continue its inclusion of biodiesel development as an important agenda to the nation’s transportation energy efficiency plan, to allow for a higher percentage of biodiesel blends over the next few decades.

The Government, through Miti and the Primary Industries Ministry (MPI), aims to introduce B20 biodiesel by 2020.
At the same time, the MPI is also collaborating with Miti to include a “B20/B30-ready” specification for vehicles in the NAP review.

Institute planned to cultivate talent in renewable energy
Published on: Monday, June 10, 2019
By: Bernama


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Edra Power Holdings Sdn Bhd plans to set up an international institute in Malaysia to cultivate local talent in renewable energy under the aegis of its parent company, China General Nuclear Power Corporation (CGN).

It will be one of eight such training institutes in CGN’s active exploration for international talent to support its worldwide operations.

“CGN Energy International Institute (CGNEI) is CGN’s platform for overseas clean energy.

“It will centre on Malaysia and spread to countries along China’s Belt and Road initiative, like Europe and America, to utilise CGN Group’s 40 years of training expertise and resources,” said CGN University Executive Vice-President Zhang Guo Qiang.

He said that with the establishment of the institute in Malaysia, CGN would play an active role in developing local talent as Malaysia moved towards utilising more renewable energy.

Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change Minister Yeo Bee Yin was reported as saying recently that Malaysia was getting ready to make a transition towards renewable energy to make the environment more sustainable, competitive, efficient and greener.

She said the transition would be possible after Malaysia signs the global initiative RE100 Agreement, probably in January next year.

RE100 is a Global Electricity Initiative that brings together influential businesses to 100% renewable electricity with the aim of accelerating change towards zero carbon grids at the global scale. l

Zhang told Bernama that CGN’s talent cultivation initiative had resulted in the group becoming a leader in clean energy. The expertise, skills and technical know-how would give CGNEI a head-start in cultivating local talent.

He said CGN, China’s largest and the world’s third largest nuclear power operator as well as the world’s largest nuclear power station builder, had been striving to develop clean energy over the past 40 years.

With the proposed institute in Malaysia, the group was poised to support the development of high-quality talent and clean energy in the country, he said.

“The training centre in Malaysia will be an important regional training centre.

“CGNEI will invest heavily on the development of training facilities and programmes to create a high-quality talent pool for Edra and local communities to support Edra’s clean energy strategic development,” Zhang said.

Edra is one of Southeast Asia’s leading international independent power producers, with 13 power and desalination plants in Malaysia, Egypt, Bangladesh, the United Arab Emirates and Pakistan

Solar power supply for 500 Paitan villagers this November
POSTED ON JULY 7, 2019, SUNDAY AT 10:45 AM SABAH


Quote:
PAITAN: More than 500 residents here will enjoy electricity from a solar hybrid system with the completion of the Rural Electricity Supply project (BELB), this November.

Sabah Federal Secretary Datuk Samsuni Mohd Nor said the project involved six stations at Gugusan Kampung Sugut, valued at RM79 million, and was one of the government’s efforts to improve the living standard of the rural population.

He said apart from reviewing government projects, discussion sessions or questionnaires with the locals were also made to obtain feedback or problems arising from the project.

As the impact or feelings of the villagers over such projects were often overlooked, his part was to ensure every issue was acted upon and carried out by the relevant parties.

This is reached through cooperation with the Sabah Ministry of Rural Development (KPLB), Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd, the district office and all stakeholders and village representatives, he said.

Besides visiting the BELB project, Samsuni also reviewed the upgrading works of a mosque, Al-Quran Class and Fardhu Ain (KAFA) at Kampung Pandasan, Kota Belud.

He hoped the nearly RM500,000 worth of facility would benefit Kota Belud villagers and road users as resting stop in the area.

Participating in the two-day program were State Development Officer Datuk Ruji Ubi and Federal Sabah State Development Assistant Director Mat Reo Oredi.

Biotek Dinamik to invest RM350m to develop bio-CNG industry
By Farah Adilla
July 31, 2019 @ 5:05pm


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Biotek Dinamik Sdn Bhd is investing RM350 million to develop bio compressed natural gas (bio-CNG) in FGV Palm Industries Sdn Bhd's (FGVPI) palm oil mills.

FGVPI is an indirect subsidiary of Felda Global Ventures Bhd (FGV).

Biotek Dinamik managing director Eddy Yap Wai Hong said the investment included the development of 35 brownfield and greenfield sites owned by FGVPI over several years.

“For brownfield sites, Biotek Dinamik will be investing RM7 million to build bio-CNG plant while for greenfield sites, the company is expected to invest around RM11 million to RM12 million to build both biogas and bio-CNG plants.”

Yap was speaking to reporters after signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) by FGV Palm Industries Sdn Bhd (FGVPI), Sime Darby Energy Solutions Sdn Bhd (SDES) and Biotek Dinamik Sdn Bhd.

The MoU will see the three parties collaborate to produce bio-CNG from waste biogas generated from palm oil mills effluent (POME) ponds.


FGVPI was represented by FGV chief operating officer (plantation) Syed Mahdhar Syed Hussain while Sime Darby Energy was represented by its general manager Habibullah Nordin.

Bio-CNG is a potential substitute for diesel in vehicles and also in the manufacturing industry.

FGV currently generates 170 million cubic metres of biogas a year from 30 mill sites, as a bi-product of the anaerobic digestion of POME. This is equivalent to 1.0 million to 1.5 million litres of diesel per palm oil mill annually.

FGV group chief executive officer Datuk Haris Fadzilah Hassan said once the project was fully rolled out, FGV would have the most bio-CNG sites in the world for a plantation company.

The project will also enable FGV to monetise biogas produced from its biogas plants.

Haris said the project was expected to generate substantial value for the group while helping the government to meet its renewable energy target of 20 per cent by 2020.

FGV has 68 mills nationwide.

Under the MoU, Biotek Dinamik will be the project developer, owner and operator of the bio-CNG and biogas plants while FGVPI will provide mill sites, biogas and POME supplies.

SDES, on the other hand, will be providing design and construction services as well as ongoing maintenance support for the project

Malaysia needs RM33b investment to hit renewable energy target
By Bernama
September 3, 2019 @ 6:06pm


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia needs investments totalling RM33 billion in order to achieve its target of 20 per cent electricity generation from renewable energy (RE) sources by 2025, said Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change Minister Yeo Bee Yin.

She said the investments would be contributed by the government, public-private partnerships and private financing.

“The Securities Commission has already done a six-month study on green financing; it had formed the financing taskforce (for this purpose). It gave a report on 21 action items to facilitate the RM33 billion investment in RE and the government will look at all the action items and implement them accordingly,” she told reporters after officiating the inaugural 5-In-1 Power and Energy Asia Series exhibition here today.

Meantime, Yeo said, the government would continue all the current incentives such as the Green Technology Financing Scheme and the Green Investment Tax Allowance to incentivise the growth of RE.

Meanwhile, she said the third round of large-scale solar (LSS3) bidding, which ended last month, saw the cost of generating per kilowatt-hour (kWh) from solar energy was lower than energy generation from natural gas sources.

She said the lower cost of solar generation was due to the advanced solar panel development technology that allowed the project to be bid at a cost of as low as 17.77 sen per kWh.

Earlier in her speech, she said that LSS3 projects were in the offing for Malaysia in an effort to provide more affordable, reliable and sustainable electricity to the people.

She said Malaysia was already seeing solar energy being cheaper than the gas generation cost; thus in the future, the government expected the cost to trend down further for RE.

Citing an example, she said in the LSS3 bidding which had just been completed, the first four projects which encompassed 365 MW out of 500 MW were actually bid below the gas-generation price of 23.22 sen per kWh.

“In the second round of LSS bidding, 32 sen per kWh was the lowest price; that became our reference price when we opened LSS3 for bidding this year. But when the bidding exercise closed, the lowest bid was at 17.77 sen per kwh.

“That is a 45 per cent reduction in just a few years. That is why we are very confident that RE price will reach parity (with that of gas) in the foreseeable future,” she said, adding that Malaysia was also working on other types of RE in order to achieve parity with or below the gas-generation cost...

Permaju inks solar deal, eyes triple-digit revenue growth
By Sharen Kaur
September 5, 2019 @ 8:28am


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Sabah-based Permaju Industries Bhd has forayed into solar power generation business in a move to increase revenue by triple-digit growth, people with knowledge on the matter said.

Permaju, which is listed on Bursa Malaysia’s Main Market, is expected to invest between RM350 million and RM400 million to develop a solar energy generation facility in Negri Sembilan.

It is understood that Permaju has partnered Vsolar Group Bhd, an ACE Market-listed renewable energy and photovoltaic (PV) energy generation firm, for its maiden venture into solar.

Permaju, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Genbayu Gemilang Sdn Bhd signed a collaboration and alliance agreement with Vsolar Group's unit Solar Interactive Sdn Bhd on September 4.

The agreement entails the development of the solar facility, including a Large Scale Solar (LSS) PV plant on 121.4 hectares of land owned by Genbayu in Setul, Seremban.

Sources close to Permaju said that Genbayu and Solar Interactive would establish a joint venture company to develop the solar facility with a capacity of 90 megawatts (MW).



"Permaju and Vsolar are each targeting triple-digit revenue growth a year from this venture. Their bottomline is expected to improve," said the sources.

Permaju, through its automotive division, is involved in the distribution of Volkswagen and Ford franchises.

The group is also involved in property development activities.

For the 12 months ended March 31 2019, Permaju revenues totaled RM62.6 million, with a net loss of RM997,000.

VSolar recorded a net loss of RM1.22 million for the cumulative nine months ended March 31, 2019, despite revenue growing 22.17 per cent to RM1.28 million.

Sources said the solar facility would initially have 117MW PV panel, with capacity to produce about 400Wp solar panel products (about 293,000 pieces) and there is potential to expand.

"The energy will be sold to Tenaga Nasional Bhd under a power purchase agreement to be signed at a later stage. Both the companies estimate the project return on investment will take around nine years."

LSS, best known as a solar farm, can generate anywhere from hundreds of kilowatts to thousands of megawatts of solar power.

LSS typically use solar PV technology to generate electricity from fields of solar PV panels.

The solar panels convert the energy from sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity, then inverters convert the power into alternating current (AC) that can be integrated into the electricity grid.

The sources said the solar facility will be subject to a definitive feasibility study, available financing and availability of feed in quotas from the relevant authorities.

Solar Interactive will procure engineering and construction services in addition to the procurement of financing for the development of the solar facility

Malaysia eyes higher electricity output from renewable sources
By NST Business - September 17, 2019 @ 11:18am
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Plans for the development of solar and other renewables remain less well developed in Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, according to The Economist Intelligence Unit.

Indonesia and Malaysia sourced 12 per cent and 15 per cent of their total electricity output from renewable sources respectively in 2018, based on the EIU estimates.

“Malaysia aims to raise this proportion to 20 per cent by 2025, and Indonesia to 23 per cent by 2025 and 31 per cent by 2050.

“However, these figures look relatively modest compared with efforts elsewhere, and the two countries' governments do not appear to have committed wholeheartedly to shifting their energy mix,” the EIU said in its latest report.

The EIU said Southeast Asia had traditionally relied on fossil-fuel-fired power generation to drive its growth.

It estimates that combustible fuels accounted for 82 per cent of total power generation in 2018 in the region's six largest economies. Yet there are signs that this may be changing.

“In the face of pressure to reduce carbon emissions—as well as a shift in the cost of producing electricity from renewable sources relative to coal—policymakers in some countries are reassessing power policies,” it added.

The EIU said progress towards more sustainable energy strategies had varied substantially among the members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean).

Although fossil fuels still dominate the energy mix in most of the grouping's economies, Singapore and Thailand have at least relied more on natural gas, which produces less carbon dioxide (CO2) when burned.

By contrast, coal - often regarded as one of the dirtiest forms of fuel both in terms of CO2 emissions and more toxic pollutants - continues to play a major role in many of the region's economies.

The EIU estimated that in 2018, coal-fired plants accounted for 31.3 per cent of electricity generation in Vietnam, 42.5 per cent in Malaysia, 45.4 per cent in the Philippines and 52 per cent in Indonesia.

Asean has set a target in 2015 for renewables to account for 23 per cent of the region's energy mix by 2025.

“This target stands out as being relatively modest by global standards, but it will be tough to meet. Even in power generation, which forms only part of the total energy mix, renewables accounted for just 17.6 per cent of total generation in 2018 by our estimates,” the EIU said.
