Sarawak Energy to play a vital role on reducing carbon emission

Date:

KUCHING: Sarawak Energy Berhad (SEB) will be the key to fulfilling the goal of reducing the nation’s carbon emission intensity by 45 percent by 2030, said its chairman Datuk Amar Abdul Hamed Sepawi.

“We are delighted to note that the Malaysia government now recognises large hydropower as part of our national renewable energy generation mix.

“Sarawak’s large hydropower plants have led to a reduction in carbon intensity for power generation by 68 percent from 2011 to 2019.

“It is only right that Bakun, Murum, Batang Ai and eventually Baleh (hydropower plants) be counted in Malaysia’s renewable energy target,” he said during the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) term signing ceremony between SEB and Malaysia LNG Sdn Bhd (MLNG) today.

“We are pleased to work with like-minded organisations who believe that all parties have a role to play in mitigating climate change through responsible action.

“As the energy arm of the Sarawak government, our corporate vision and business model is leading the transition to a sustainable energy future at both national and regional levels,” he said.

He also congratulated Petronas on its aspiration to achieve Net Zero Carbon Emissions by 2050, adding that SEB was looking to help advance the ambition through the term sheet and other collaborations.

“In fact, we will be pleased to further green your operations by powering MLNG with clean solar energy when our Batang Ai floating solar project is commissioned.

“I believe we will be able to contribute to the creation of a sustainable energy future together by building on this term sheet as well as our collaboration in hydrogen research,” he added.
