Malaysian Scientists Should Capitalise On Sarawak's Energy Potential
September 13, 2012 17:33 PM
http://www.bernama.com/bernama/state...694414&cat=sre

KUCHING, Sept 13 (Bernama) -- Malaysian energy scientists should capitalise on Sarawak's renewable energy potential to produce cost-efficient power supply products, State Housing and Tourism Minister, Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg said here, Thursday.

In addition to hydroelectric power, he said Sarawak's renewable energy potential would be further boosted by a foreign company's plan to set up a solar panel manufacturing plant in the state.

"We have an abundance of energy (potentials). We have the ingredients but the only thing we need is more research (to be conducted by energy experts)," he told reporters after launching the state-level Innovation Walk here.

He said with regards to solar power system, the Science, Technology and Innovation Ministry (MOSTI) with its expertise could spearhead the task to improvise the methods and eventually reduce costs involved.

"For now it may be expensive, but my focus is to start (the solar power supply) in the community areas like recreational parks," he added.

S’wak has highest renewable energy potential
by Salena Pail, [email protected]. Posted on September 21, 2012, Friday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2012/09...rgy-potential/



COURTESY CALL: Chin (centre) is seen during a photo call with Utusan
Borneo and The Borneo Post reporters from the NSJA group. At left is Chin’s
political secretary Datuk Sebastian Ting.


PUTRAJAYA: Sarawak has the highest Renewable Energy (RE) asset potential in Malaysia, particularly through hydro production.

Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water Datuk Seri Peter Chin said the state’s geographical condition was its main advantage.

“Sarawak has huge potential in contributing to the generating of RE, especially in terms of hydropower,” he told Northern Sarawak Journalist Association (NSJA) members yesterday.

A 17-member delegation paid a courtesy call on Chin as part of their five-day media study trip to Putrajaya from Sept 16.

“To name a few, Sarawak has Bakun Hydroelectric Dam and Murum Dam as well as other high potential areas which are in the process of site research including Baram, Limbang and Lawas,” said Chin.

He added that compared to Sarawak, hydro power in the peninsula did not have the advantage of geographical factors as the area is limited in generating more energy.

Meanwhile, Chin said as there was high potential of RE production in Sarawak, there was no need for Feed-in-Tariff (FiT) in the state.

“FiT is only applicable in West Malaysia and Sabah since its inception in 2011 where it serves mainly for the domestic advantage to get cheaper electricity supply, thus with high RE potential in Sarawak, it is not necessary for FiT to be applied for the meantime,” he added.

Sabah to boost production of 'green energy'
22 September 2012 | last updated at 11:47PM
http://www.nst.com.my/nation/general...nergy-1.146813

KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah government is embarking on aggressive policies to promote large-scale use of renewable or green energy.

State Minister of Industrial Development Datuk Raymond Tan Shu Kiah said Sabah produced abundant residues of oil palm and wood waste, which was a strong potential for power generation and manufacturing of eco-products.

The state was keen to collaborate with the European Union-Malaysia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Eumcci), which was executing the EU funded project "Enhancing EU-Malaysia business dialogue and cooperation in the service sector".

"In Sabah, the biomass production contributes 34 megawatts (MW) of electricity, and two of our biomass plants in Sandakan have been in existence for the last 10 years.

"That means we are quite ahead in terms of producing green energy. In fact, the two plants that are generating biomass electricity acquired their technology from Europe.

"The thing is, we are not doing enough to promote green energy through the use of biomass and this is the biggest challenge for us," he said at the EU-Sabah Biomass Seminar on Renewable Energy Solutions for Sabah here yesterday.

Tan said although the 34MW of green energy produced in Sabah was small, it was the largest green energy production in the country.

He said Sabah was adopting an advanced green energy policy to reduce pollution. It was also being promoted as a green state.

"There is no other state in Malaysia that can challenge us.

"Today, you may see we don't have enough electricity. But we have already planned to boost supply.

"Give us until 2015 and there will be generation of 700MW of electricity from natural gas."

Tan said Sabah was providing power to the people at a rate cheaper than any state in Malaysia. Bernama

M’sia aims for 5.5 pct energy from renewable sources
Posted on October 12, 2012, Friday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2012/10...wable-sources/

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia aims to secure 5.5 per cent of its total energy capacity from renewable sources by 2015.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the government had created support mechanisms,

including the Feed-in-Tariff, which paid a premium rate for green electricity to achieve the goal.

“We have pushed renewable energy into the spotlight and now aim to secure 5.5 per cent of the total energy capacity from renewable sources by 2015 and 11 per cent by 2020,” he said in his keynote address at the official opening of the third International Greentech and Eco Products Exhibition and Conference Malaysia (IGEM 2012) here yesterday.

He said it was estimated that renewable energy would generate RM70 billion worth of economic activity by 2020 and support 50,000 jobs.

“It will also avoid 42.2 million tonnes of carbon emissions, about a 40 per cent reduction, which I promised at the Copenhagen Climate Conference,” he added.

Alongside generating more clean electricity, Najib said Malaysia must also strived to conserve it, as energy efficiency could save Malaysia RM14 billion in Gross National Income (GNI) by 2020.

“So, we are developing Energy Services Companies to help users find savings, encouraging energy efficient appliances for homes and businesses, and supporting efficiency drives with tax incentives,” he added.

He said Malaysia had good potential to become a regional hub for electric vehicles, with a vibrant, world-class industry.

“That is why we reviewed the National Automotive Policy, to stimulate investments in electric vehicles, with research grants and tax incentives,” he highlighted.

He said Malaysia’s green industries were already worth some RM67 billion and grew by six per cent between 2010 to 2011, outstripping the global green sector.

“One of my ambitions is to encourage green industries to expand and innovate, and not just for the environment, but because it is so plainly good for our economy,” he added.

Najib said it was estimated that all the green projects under the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) would generate a total GNI of RM53 billion by 2020.

“We are in a prime position to capitalise on the proximity to huge markets such as China and our manufacturing strengths,” he added. — Bernama

FRIM, Armada in carbon offset project
By Rupinder SinghPublished: 2012/10/11
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...rim10/Article/

KUALA LUMPUR: The Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM) yesterday launched Malaysia's first carbon offset conservation programme with the collaboration and sponsorship from Bumi Armada Bhd.

The project involves the conservation of carbon stored at Field 11, a 5.6ha of rich, biologically diverse forest site within FRIM's 544ha campus in Kepong.

Field 11 has the capacity to store 3,938.6 tonnes of carbon equivalent annually and Bumi Armada's contribution of RM107,000 will cover the carbon credits from the conservation of the forest within the project site for a period of five years.

The collaborative agreement was signed by FRIM's director-general Datuk Abd Latif Mohmod on behalf of the Malaysian Forestry Research and Development Board, while Bumi Armada was represented by its chief executive officer Hassan Basma.

According to Abd Latif, carbon offsets enable individual, companies and countries to reduce their carbon emissions by offsetting, reducing or displacing carbon in another place.

"Reduction of carbon is an integral effort in mitigating the potential devastating impact of climate change facing the global community today. As such, it is everybody's responsibility to reduce carbon emissions and address climate change," he said.

Continue lead role in green tech, govt urged
By Goh Thean Eu Published: 2012/10/08
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New.../grin/Article/



THE government needs to continue to take the lead in driving the growth of green technology, as it is a sector that can create positive spillover effects on other industries.

"The green technology is very important, it is a kind of engine that will create further development of other industries," Japanese External Trade Organisation (Jetro) managing director Joji Ikeshita said in an interview recently.

"Green technology is a combination of a lot of state-of-the-art technologies, facilities and abilities. It is not only an energy replacement industry, but it will also create new technologies, new markets and new employment."

The government is on a mission to reduce carbon footprint by 40 per cent by 2025.

M'sia may set up similar funding system to one in India for renewable energy
Tuesday November 20, 2012
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...&if_height=202



Chin says he is impressed by the financing model for renewable energy
projects in India.


PETALING JAYA: A funding system similar to the one in India is being considered by the Energy, Green Technology and Water Ministry for green initiatives in Malaysia

Minister Datuk Seri Peter Chin said he was impressed by the financing model for renewable energy projects in India during a recent ministerial meeting he had with his Indian counterpart.

“India has created a specific bank' to promote renewable energy and I am very impressed by what it has done,” he told a press confrence after launching the SieMyCity: Build You Ideal KL game competition here.

He was referring to the Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency Ltd, under the New and Renewable Energy Ministry, which is a revolving fund to provide financial assistance for projects and schemes that have commercial viability in generating renewable electricity.

He added the ministry had two officers stationed in India to study the option. The ministry has given RM850mil worth of soft loans under the Green Technology Financing Scheme from the total fund of RM3.5bil allocated under Budget 2010 and Budget 2013.

The Government had allocated RM1.5bil in the Budget 2010 and RM2bil this September. The loans were given on a first-come-first-serve basis to companies.

On a separate note, Siemens Malaysia Sdn Bhd president and chief executive Prakash Chandran said the local Siemens outfit has enjoyed improved performance with 8% growth in order intake and 16% increase in revenue for the financial year ended September.

“We did reasonably well in our last financial year. Under the own business category, which are orders booked in Malaysia only, our order book value closed at just below RM1bil,” he said, adding that the current financial year started very well despite economic weaknesses.

Hub for energy efficient vehicles
Rupinder Singh Published: 2013/02/21
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...s/oem/Article/



THE country's plan to be the region's energy efficient vehicles (EEVs) hub is taking shape with three global original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) pledging investments here this year.

"So far, three OEMs have confirmed," said Malaysian Automotive Institute (MAI) chief executive officer Madani Sahari.

They had presented their plans to the International Trade and Industry Ministry and the Malaysian Investment Development Authority, he added.

"The government is OK with it (the plans)," Madani said after a luncheon talk titled "The Way Forward for Malaysia's Automotive Industry" organised by MIDF here yesterday.

Madani said three more global automotive OEMs could make similar investment here next year.

"They are making their inroads now," he remarked.

Madini, who met Prime Minister Datuk Najib Razak yesterday morning, said up to six global OEMs could set up a base of operations in Malaysia by 2015.

He said the automotive players include those who have yet to set up in the region and those who plan to relocate to Malaysia from other parts of the world.

"That is the beauty of our National Automotive Policy (NAP). The NAP now is not only about attracting new OEMs but is also about attracting other OEMs that have got facilities in other countries," Madani said.

"They are looking at our NAP to diversify and not put all their eggs in one basket," he added.

He, however, did not identify any particular OEM.

"We can't reveal their names now but they come from all over the world, including Japan," he said.

The revised NAP, which aims to liberalise the local automotive industry, will encourage open market and allow greater availability of vehicle models with the latest technologies in the country.

This could help Malaysia close the gap with Thailand.

With EEVs in Malaysia, Madani said existing players both local and foreign can expect stiffer competition.

"These (EEV players) are OEMs that are producing EEVs in their country of origin," he said during his presentation.

He said the influx of global OEMs in the local automotive industry in the next two years is expected to drive car prices down.

It has been widely speculated that various incentives will be announced under the revised NAP to attract foreign automotive companies with EEV capabilities.

EEVs are vehicles that meet a set of defined specification in terms of emission level and energy usage, including fuel-efficient vehicles, hybrid, electric vehicles and alternatively fuelled vehicles such those using compressed natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, biodiesel, ethanol, hydrogen and fuel cells.

Comtec to build RM1.2b plant in Sarawak
Published: 2013/04/02
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz2PKAxVIWf

KUCHING: Comtec Solar International (M) Sdn Bhd (Comtec Solar) will set up its new Sarawak solar wafer plant at the Sama Jaya Free Industrial Zone here with a total investment of RM1.2 billion, state Assistant Minister for Industrial Development (Investment & Promotion) Julaihi Narawi said today.

He said Somtec Solar's decision to locate its newest plant in Sama Jaya, a prime industrial estate for high-tech industries, would also create 1,300 jobs for the state's young graduates and diploma holders.

"The government will render all the necessary assistance to ensure the success of the project's implementation," he said in welcoming the investment by the Chinese company, a professional solar silicon ingots and wafer manufacturer based in Shanghai and Hai An.

On March 27 this year, Comtec Solar Director Isabel Kow Seok Foon informed the Assistant Minister of the company's decision to set up its newest plant here, which is expected to be the world's biggest N type mono wafer manufacturing plant, during a follow-up visit here.

Comtec Solar, also listed on the Main Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, is one of the world’s top three N type mono wafer manufacturers as reported by Bloomberg.

Julaihi added that Sama Jaya is strategically located in Kuching city, which has excellent infrastructure and modern amenities.-- Bernama

Maju in RM600m hydropower plant venture
By Sharen Kaur Published: 2013/04/08
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz2PpVnHn5W

Maju Holdings Sdn Bhd, which is controlled by businessman Tan Sri Abu Sahid Mohamed, will invest RM600 million to build its first hydroelectric plant in Perak.

The company ventured into the hydroelectric business with joint venture partner Perak Hydro Renewable Energy Corp Sdn Bhd (PHREC) in November last year.

Maju Hydro Renewable Energy Sdn Bhd, in which Maju Holdings has 70 per cent stake, will build the plant.

Maju Holdings chief executive officer Ravi Manchanda told Business Times that the project will generate 60 megawatts (MW) of electricity for the state.

He said the project's feasibility study is expected to be completed by June.

Manchanda added that construction is slated to start in the third or fourth quarter of the year and be completed in 2015 or 2016.

He said Maju Holdings is moving to new industries to diversify its sources of earnings and will consider building more hydro plants in Malaysia.

"We are looking at businesses that can generate long-term annuity income. Hydro power projects will give a big boost to our construction division," Manchanda said.

PHREC is a strategic partner for Maju Holdings as it has been tasked by the Perak government to develop and coordinate the development of small renewable energy hydro projects in the state.

The government is trying to lure hydropower developers to the region via its RM60 million hydropower technology centre in Ipoh.

Maju Holdings' biggest revenue contributor is its infrastructure assets while the construction division provides the core growth for the company.

"In the past nine months, Maju Holdings has been streamlining the business to make it more focused. We used to have an oil and gas division but axed the business to focus on five core areas," Manchanda said.

Harvesting solar energy
By SYLVIA LOOI | 11 May 2013| last updated at 09:18PM

KAMUNTING: THE newly-built Toyo Tires factory, here, will have a green energy programme.

Toyo Tyre (M) Sdn Bhd managing director Kanji Kasai said 608 solar panels had been installed on the roof of the administrative building to supply 140 kilowatts of electricity at peak times.

"The administrative building is only installed with LED lights for lower power consumption.

"This will be sufficient to meet the consumption needs of the administrative building," he said.

The flagship manufacturing facility was launched by Toyo Tire and Rubber Co Ltd chairman Kenji Nakakura.

Also present was International Trade and Industry Ministry secretary-general Datuk Dr Rebecca Fatima Sta Maria.

Besides environment-friendly initiatives, Kasai said there were also plans to introduce a scholarship programme for the local community.

Kasai said the factory would be operated using the Advanced Tire Operation Module.

"It is a scalable system that features a high level of automation, multi-product and small lot production capabilities for high productivity, better quality and greater efficiency," he said, adding that it had the flexibility to respond to changes in production plans.

He said more Toyo Premium Auto Centres and Toyo Auto Centres would be set up, in addition to the eight that are in operation.

"These auto centres will widen our reach to promote our product."

The RM800 million state of the art facility is sited on a 59.8ha site in the Kamunting Raya Industrial Estate.

It will the largest plant for Toyo Tires outside of Japan in two years, when production goes into full capacity.

KULIM: Panasonic Energy Malaysia Sdn Bhd (PECMY), a solar manufacturing company set up by Panasonic Corp, has started the full-scale production of HIT (Heterojunction with Intrinsic Thin-layer) solar modules at its RM1.84 billion plant here.

Its managing director Yasuyoshi Kawanishi said the plant has an annual production capacity of 300 megawatts (MW).

With the factory now at full-scale operation, Panasonic's overall production capacity will increase to 900 MW from 600 MW, he said.

Kawanshi said the company will expand its business in order to meet growing solar power demand, especially for the Japanese market, where environmental awareness and the attractiveness of feed-in tariffs (FITs) are seeing record solar installations.

"We will accelerate our efforts to meet the robust solar demand, especially in Japan," he said, noting that the majority of modules are being shipped to Japan to meet booming installations.

Panasonic HIT offers the world's top level conversion efficiency and excellent feature of temperature dependence that ensures more power generation even during summer at high temperatures.

The global solar market is expected to grow further with increasing environmental awareness and the introduction of stimulus measures, such as FITs and subsidies in various countries.

Moving on, Kawanishi said the company is poised to tap into the growth potential in countries such as Europe and the US.

"We hope to penetrate European market within this year," he told a press conference after the opening ceremony of PECMY and commemoration on the achievement of 300 MW capacity of solar panels recently.

The event was officiated by Kedah state executive councillor for industry and investment Datuk Ku Rahman Ku Ismail. Earlier, Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir visited the plant.

In December 2011, Panasonic started work on the manufacturing base on the 28.35ha site in Kulim Hi-Tech Park, which was planned to combine the production of wafers, solar cells and modules.

Kawanishi said by making wafers, cells and modules at the same location, the company benefits from lower transportation expenses and use of materials produced locally.

Petronas' first solar photovoltaic (PV) project emerged as first runner-up in the Commercial Based On-Grid Category of the Asean Energy Award 2013, which was won by Sathingphra District in Songkla Province, Thailand for its electricity-generating wind turbine project.

The PV project, installed on the Suria KLCC shopping mall rooftop, was Petronas' first venture into renewable energy, and used six different solar technologies.

In a statement today, the national oil firm said the project aimed to study and identify a solar technology that applies well with Malaysia’s climate.

The annual Asean Energy Award, incepted in 2000, is organised by the Asean Centre for Energy to recognise outstanding work in renewable energy development -- hydro, wind, biomass, geothermal and solar -- and this year received 18 entries.

Chief executive officer of the Sustainable Energy Development Authority Malaysia (SEDA) who was also present at the award ceremony, Datin Badriyah Abd Malek, lauded Petronas’ venture into renewable energy.

"We hope to see more corporations in the country participate in the development of renewable energy and contribute to the country’s energy sustainability," she added.-- Bernama

KUALA LUMPUR: Forty per cent of renewable energy sources approved in the country comes from solar power.

Energy, Green Technology and Water Deputy Minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid told the Dewan Rakyat today that 208 megawatts or 40 per cent of the capacity was from solar power.

He said the approval was for the quota offered until the first half of 2015, when replying to a question from Dr Azman Ismail (PKR-Kuala Kedah).

Azman wanted to know how far Malaysia had been successful in generating green energy sources, particularly solar power.-- BERNAMA

Nilai solar site ready to generate electricity


Posted on December 20, 2013 | 189 Views | Topic : Property News.



New use: An aerial view of the former Pajam landfill that has been converted into a renewable energy park.

CYPARK Resources Bhd, a Malaysian company providing integrated green engineering and renewable energy solutions, has engaged global certification expert TÜV SÜD as part of its plan to transform the former Pajam dumpsite in Nilai, Negri Sembilan into Malaysia’s first and biggest renewable energy park. With TÜV SÜD’s testing support, the site which previously had minimal economic, real estate and social value, is now certified as a performance-ready solar park with the ability to power over 17,000 households annually.

The RM150mil park includes a 13MW lightweight, non-permanent and non-invasive solar park. In 21 years, the solar park is expected to generate RM500mil worth of electricity.

This amount of electricity is equivalent to the power generated by 9,300 tonnes of coal a yearand will potentially reduce 14,335 tonnes of carbon dioxide and 684 tonnes of methane gas emissions a year.

Managing the closed dump site will be a 25-year process. Cypark, through a public-private partnership with the state government has transformed the Pajam site into an integrated renewable energy park to return the land to the community in a form that benefits the environment and people.





Dumpsites are important in developing economies. However, after close to 30 years of operations, the Pajam dumpsite may affect the social and environmental well-being of nearby areas. Decomposing waste contains toxic substances and over time this leaches into the soil and ground water, resulting in environmental and health hazards. Dumps also releases greenhouse gases such as methane, which is 21 times more potent than carbon dioxide in terms of climate change.

Taking into consideration the environmental, economic and social benefits from the transformation, the Pajam renewable energy park was selected as an Entry Point Project under Malaysia’s Economic Transformation Programme.

“Unlike coal or natural gas, sunlight cannot be stored in containers. Thus, it is critical that our solar park is able to capture every hour of sunlight and convert it into solar energy. Under the Renewable Energy Power Purchase Agreement, power producers are responsible for supplying reliable, steady flow of power. Faulty photovoltaic systems will cause costly disruptions. As such, we only use the highest quality photovoltaic modules and inverters. We commissioned TÜV SÜD to test grid safety and performance-readiness. We also depended on TÜV SÜD to test the efficacy of the power we generated,” said Daud Ahmad, group chief executive officer of Cypark Resources.

TÜV SÜD partners investors, manufacturers and operators with end-to-end quality and safety services from the concept phase through to construction, grid connection and operations. The company supports them in ensuring quality, safety and reliability of their renewable installations and delivery on energy yield expectations.

“We are honoured to have supported Cypark in this green energy project. Cypark’s solar park is backed by TÜV SÜD’s 140 years of experience in inspection, testing and a highly-responsive team with actual hands-on experience. We also have a local office in Malaysia to ensure maximum communications and collaboration efficiency with Cypark. Our test reports are recognised throughout the world, especially by investors and financial institutions whose priorities are to determine accurate energy yields and returns from their investments. Time and cost-wasting disputes are minimised. With our support, the reputation and credibility of the project is greatly enhanced,” said Richard Hong, CEO of TÜV SÜD PSB.

Cypark's 3rd solar park in Negri Sembilan
Published: 2014/01/28
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz2riwV2vuj

SEREMBAN: Integrated renewable energy developer and green engineering solutions provider Cypark Resources Bhd on Monday completed its third renewable energy (RE) park project in Negri Sembilan.

The project is a collaboration between the group's subsidiary, Cypark Renewable Energy Sdn Bhd (CRE), and Selasih Mentari Sdn Bhd. CRE is the turnkey contractor and technology partner.

The RM65 million solar park, launched by Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan, is located in Kuala Sawah, Rantau, near Seremban.

Cypark Resources executive chairman Tan Sri Razali Ismail said the Kuala Sawah RE park is the group's third solar park project in Negri Sembilan and fifth in Peninsular Malaysia.

"The other solar parks in Negeri Sembilan are in Pajam (Nilai) and Bukit Pelandok (Port Dickson), while the rest are in Kuala Perlis (Perlis) and Rimba Terjun, Pontian (Johor).

Razali said utilising 20,192 solar panels on 8.48ha of safety engineered remediated landfill, the Kuala Sawah site also houses a control building and an electrical room.

"As with other RE parks compeleted by Cypark, the former landfill in Kuala Sawah also underwent an environmental transformation before experiencing an economic transformation when the remediated landfill was converted into an RE park through the hard work of some 400 workers." Bernama
