ENERtec Asia 2024 drives regional push for sustainable energy future

26 Jun 2024

ENERtec Asia 2024, a threeday conference commencing today, aims to foster collaboration and knowledge exchange to address escalating air pollution and climate change caused by fossil fuel use, to meet the region’s rising energy demands.

Chairman of ENERtec Asia Tan Sri Abd Rahman Mamat said attendees will have unique opportunities to gain actionable insights, explore cutting-edge innovations and forge valuable partnerships to propel their organisations towards a low-carbon future.

“With over 300 exhibitors showcasing the most advanced solutions in renewable energy, cleantech, energy efficiency, and electric mobility, this is a true celebration of innovation and progress,” he said in his keynote address at the opening ceremony of ENERtec Asia 2024.

ENERtec Asia is organised by Informa Markets Malaysia Sdn Bhd, co-hosted by The Electrical and Electronics Association of Malaysia and in partnership with the Energy Industries Council.

Meanwhile, Sarawak’s Deputy Minister of Energy and Environmental Sustainability, Datuk Hazland Abang Hipni in his keynote address stated that ENERtec Asia provided a comprehensive platform to unite industry leaders, policymakers and stakeholders in pursuing a sustainable and secure energy landscape.

In support of the government’s commitment to the Paris Agreement, Hazland said the Sarawak state government is actively striving for a 45 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions intensity relative to GDP by 2030.

“Our Ministry wholeheartedly embraces the government’s goal of achieving 31 per cent renewable energy in the national installed capacity mix by 2025, and 40 per cent by 2035.

“We are implementing a range of policies and initiatives to meet these targets, including expanding large-scale solar projects, promoting biomass and biogas energy generation, developing new hydroelectric capacity and exploring emerging technologies, such as wind and ocean energy,” he said.

He also emphasised that his ministry is implementing the National Energy Efficiency Action Plan in alignment with the government’s focus on energy efficiency.

“This plan aims to reduce electricity consumption by eight per cent across the commercial, industrial, and domestic sectors by 2025.

“We are working closely with other ministries to achieve the National Automotive Policy 2020 target of 15 per cent total industry volume for electric vehicles by 2030,” he added.
