Sustainable Energy in Malaysia’s Tech Sector

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

To spur sustainable energy adoption in Malaysia’s tech sector, a Malaysia-based engineering services company has secured a contract with a medical device manufacturing company to install a 3.6 megawatt-peak solar photovoltaic system at its manufacturing facility in Batu Kawan, Penang. This agreement marks the medical device manufacturer’s first overseas facility, reinforcing Malaysia’s position as an attractive destination for sustainable tech investments.

The engineering services company will play a crucial role as the engineering, procurement, construction, and commission provider for the rooftop solar PV installation at the medical device company’s manufacturing facility. The system is expected to generate 3.6 MWp of clean energy, offsetting approximately 3,190 tonnes of carbon dioxide, supporting the manufacturer’s commitment to sustainable and environmentally responsible operations.

Malaysia’s Chief Executive Officer of the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) expressed enthusiasm for the medical device company’s initiative, aligning with Malaysia’s ambitious goal of achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. This move sets a commendable example for businesses looking to contribute to a sustainable Malaysia, with a focus on Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles to address climate change challenges effectively.

The engineering services company’s Executive Director and Group CEO highlighted the company’s delight in providing reliable and efficient clean energy solutions for the medical device manufacturer’s overseas expansion. The growing recognition of sustainability’s significance in business operations has led to an upsurge in clean energy adoption, driving the engineering services company’s job pipeline and tender book of approximately 2.5 GW across various countries in the region.

With the Corporate Green Power Programme (CGPP) releasing an 800 MW solar PV assets quota, the engineering services company aims to boost its unbilled order book and cater to increasing demand from corporations seeking to reduce their carbon footprint.

Meanwhile, the medical device manufacturer’s Global Environmental, Health, Safety & Sustainability Senior Director emphasised the company’s commitment to environmental responsibility. By pursuing clean energy solutions, the medical device manufacturer is actively working to minimise its greenhouse gas emissions across its operations and supply chain, reflecting the tech industry’s growing focus on sustainability.

The Malaysian government’s commitment to promoting sustainable energy and addressing climate change is exemplified by the solar photovoltaic project being undertaken in Batu Kawan, Penang. Through various initiatives and policies, the Malaysian government has set ambitious targets to reduce carbon emissions and transition towards a greener economy. The project aligns with these goals, as it aims to generate a substantial amount of clean energy, helping to offset carbon dioxide emissions significantly.

One of the government’s key initiatives is the Corporate Green Power Programme (CGPP), which encourages corporations to invest in renewable energy sources. This program is designed to stimulate clean energy investments and reduce the country’s carbon footprint.

The government’s focus on Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles is evident in its dedication to position Malaysia as a preferred sustainable investment destination. By fostering sustainable growth and encouraging the adoption of clean energy solutions, the government aims to address the pressing challenges posed by climate change effectively.

Overall, the solar photovoltaic project in Batu Kawan showcases the Malaysian government’s commitment to promoting sustainable energy solutions and building a greener, more environmentally responsible future for the nation. Through collaboration with various stakeholders, the government strives to lead the way in sustainable development and create a positive impact on Malaysia’s environment and economy.
