Norway keen on cooperating with Sarawak for renewable energy

Norway keen on cooperating with Sarawak for renewable energy

05 Jan 2023

Sarawak’s commitment to exploring renewable energy, in efforts to realise its vision of becoming a developed state by 2030, has attracted the attention of Norway, which is interested in seeking opportunities for cooperation.

The matter was conveyed by the Norwegian Ambassador to Malaysia, Morten Paulsen, during a courtesy call on Sarawak’s Deputy Minister for Energy and Environmental Sustainability, Dr Hazland Abang Hipni, yesterday.

Dr Hazland said in a statement today that Paulsen had expressed the interest of the Norwegian government in cooperating and exploring opportunities in the field of renewable energy.

“The Sarawak government’s policy to promote green energy and technology has also attracted Norway’s interest in making Sarawak an investment destination, especially in the green energy sector.

“The Norwegian ambassador also expressed interest in the implementation of Carbon Capture, Utilisation, and Storage (CCUS) in Sarawak,” he said.

Dr Hazland said that Sarawak has great potential for CCUS, as it has a large area and geological structure suitable for carbon dioxide storage.

“The CCUS industry will also create jobs and provide a new source of income for Sarawak. Norway is also willing to help Sarawak make CCUS a success by providing and supplying the latest technology,” he said.
