TNB Forges Crucial Cross-Border Partnerships with PT PLN and SPPA to Boost ASEAN Power Grid Vision


In a pivotal move towards fostering responsible energy transition in the Southeast Asian region, Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), Malaysia's leading utility company, has inked two strategic partnerships with its counterparts from Indonesia and Singapore. These collaborations aim to accelerate efforts to create an interconnected ASEAN Power Grid, enhancing energy resilience, and security, and promoting the integration of renewable energy (RE) across the region.

Under the first Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), TNB is joining hands with PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) and the ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE) to undertake a joint feasibility study to explore the potential for a cross-border electricity interconnection linking Sumatra, Indonesia, and Peninsular Malaysia. The interconnection project is deemed instrumental in facilitating the seamless integration of renewable energy sources and stimulating economic development across ASEAN member countries.

The scope of the joint feasibility study encompasses technical assessments, policy and regulatory reviews, economic analyses, commercial frameworks, preliminary environmental and social impact assessments, as well as an implementation plan.
