MDBC / EUMCCI: VIP Luncheon with YB Yeo Bee Yin, 24 Oct

October 24, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Dear MDBC members,

VIP Luncheon with the Minister of Energy, Science, Technology Environment and Climate Change: YB Yeo Bee Yin.

Malaysia is heavily dependent on coal – fired power plants.  Coal is mostly produced outside of the country.  Renewable energy must be further developed to mitigate this risk and to improve sustainability.

This Luncheon will discuss main policies, strategies, and initiatives taken by the Malaysian government on renewable energy.  Also, we will get to hear fresh perspectives from the newly restructured Ministry (MESTECC) on renewable energy as the solution for long term energy security and affordability for all, including the rural areas.

Date:    Wednesday, 24 October 2018
Time:    13:00 – 14:15 hrs
Venue:  DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur

Price:    Members: RM 350 / pax (Free Seating)
Only EUMCCI Members and Top – Up members can register at RM 250 / pax (Free Seating)

Please note: Pricing is inclusive of SST.
Only MDBC members who are also EUMCCI Top – Up members are entitled to the members price of RM 250.

From 2 to 20%! Increase tenfold renewable energy in the new Malaysia by 2025.

In the Pakatan Harapan manifesto, the coalition pledged to increase renewable energy from the current 2% to 20% by 2025.  Pakatan also pledged to reduce the dependence on coal – fired power plants which is one of the power generation methods that has a serious impact on CO2 emissions.  Furthermore, Minister of MESTEC YB Yeo Bee Yin recently stated recently that more transparency must be introduced int he way Independent Power Producer (IPP) contracts are awarded.  The ultimate goal is to develop a new energy industry centered around renewable energy and able to provide “affordable, reliable, sustainable, and long – term energy” for Malaysia.

In conjunction with reviewing energy generation strategies and policies, it is imperative to look into more efficient use of energy in order to minimise energy wastage in the industrial, commercial, and residential sectors.
