TNB CEO:Adopt Technology That Suits Your Customers https://www.tnb.com.my/announcements/tnb-ceoadopt-technology-that-suits-your-customers

Power utilities should be technology agnostic, as there are no single technology that fits all the needs of different customers or can solve all problems, said Tenaga Nasional Berhad President/Chief Executive Datuk Seri Ir. Azman Mohd.

“We should be technology agnostic. We should be thinking what will benefit the customers,” he said during panel discussion of Heads and CEOs of Utilities at the AESIEAP CEO Conference 2017.

Different segment of the customers may require different technology, based upon their location and spending power, said Azman who is also President of AESIEAP for 2017-2018.

AESIEAP or Association of the Electricity Supply Industry of East Asia and Western Pacific was founded in 1975 to allow members to foster cooperation and exchange expertise and technology.

“We should reflect how we are relevant to the customers’ needs and expectations,” he told  power industry leaders, experts and futurists from East Asia and  Western Pacific attending the conference yesterday.

The AESIEAP CEO Conference, held in Penang was attended by approximately 130 foreign delegates  from over 30 countries and over 80 from host country, Malaysia.

Azman also suggested that before opting for any technology, power utilities should reflect back on the reason behind their existence and on the need to give the best value to the customers and stakeholders.

For TNB, he said as a national electric corporation, its responsibility is not only in ‘keeping the lights on’ for the nation,  but also to provide competitive return to its shareholders.

Azman also called on AESIEAP members to work together to take advantage of the growth potential in Asia’s power sector.

“There is a lot that we can collaborate here. Not only in terms of talents and knowledge but also innovation that we can do for this region,” he added.

Signifcant Progress in Malaysia’s Sustainable Energy Deployment https://www.tnb.com.my/announcements/signifcant-progress-in-malaysias-sustainable-energy-deployment

The Malaysian Government has made major strides in the deployment of sustainable energy which involves renewable energy (RE), energy efficiency (EE) and addressing climate change, said Deputy Secretary General (Energy and Green Technology), Malaysia's Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water, Datin Badriyah Abd. Malek.

Several measures have been introduced like the Malaysian Green Technology Master Plan (GTMP), the Green Technology Financing Scheme (GTFS), the Energy Performance Contracting Fund and the Renewable Energy Act 2011., she said in her keynote address at AESIEAP CEO Conference 2017 in Penang yesterday.

AESIEAP or Association of the Electricity Supply Industry of East Asia and Western Pacific was founded in 1975 to allow members to foster cooperation and exchange expertise and technology.

Datin Badriyah said wth Net Energy Metering (NEM), Large Scale Solar (LSS), Green Sukuk Financing Scheme and Feed-in Tariff (Fit) mechanisms, Malaysia is expected to surpass the renewable energy (RE) target by 2020.

Under the target, 2,080MW of overall installed capacity will be from RE, of which the current installed capacity - around 500 MW comes from FiT. This (2,080MW) can be translated into more than 7.13 million tonnes Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission avoidance.

Badriyah also said that the Ministry is collaborating with TNB on sustainable energy efforts including EE to empower customers on ways to reduce their energy consumption through the Home Energy Report programme.

The report contains detailed information on how their consumption compares to other similar efficient homes, energy efficiency tips, home energy analysis and trending of their consumption pattern.

“Under the Grid-of-the-Future initiatives, the Ministry together with TNB have set the foundation for a more resilient and efficient grid besides enabling the integration of renewable energy under the Government Green Agenda. 

To date, Malaysia has reached 22.5% installed capacity from RE. This has paved the way for Malaysia to achieve ASEAN target in 2025 of 23% RE in total primary energy supply.

Badriyah also congratulated TNB for successfully hosting the AESIEAP CEO Conference. The conference was attended by approximately 130 foreign delegates  from over 30 countries and over 80 from host country, Malaysia.

President of AESIEAP 2017-2018, Datuk Seri Ir. Azman Mohd in his welcome speech said utilities are compelled to undergo transformation as the the electricity supply industry (ESI) becomes more competitive.

Utilities, he said are shifting towards a sustainable, innovative and smarter future to take advantage of the growth in this region and to face the challenges from higher stakeholder expectations, disruptive technology and changing customers’ needs.

The President/Chief Executive of TNB said if AESIEAP’s members can collaborate and commit towards innovations, smart technology and energy sustainability, they can make an impact in the ESI globally.

“I believe, with your valuable support and commitment, we can materialise the aspirations into action plans which can positively impact the power industry of each member country.

“Let us use the AESIEAP platform to exchange knowledge and information, and tap into each other’s experience and best practices that will benefit member countrries and eventually the AESIEAP fraternity,” he added.

The last time TNB hosted the AESIEAP CEO Conference was in Kuala Lumpur in 1995.
