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

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.
