  •  dry spell pushes electricity consumption
  •  supply reliability unaffected

The exceptionally hot weather in the past few days pushed electricity consumption to its highest in peninsular Malaysia, with Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) recording an all time high peak demand of 17,175 megawatt (MW) on Wednesday.

The heatwave, due to the El Nino weather phenomenon, has seen the consumer demand for energy climbing since Monday, breaching the 17,000 MW peak demand threshold. This broke the previous record in peak demand of 16,901 MW registered on June 6, 2014.

With the sufficient electricity generation in place, the higher demand projected will not have any impact on the reliability of power supply.

The peninsula's current totalled installed capacity stands at 22,220 MW, out of which 11,818 MW is TNB's own capacity while the balance is the total installed capacity of the Independent Power Producers.

In line with the government's call for efficient use of energy, electricity customers are encouraged to adopt the following measures during peak hours of energy consumption (2-5 PM):

1. Setting air conditioners at 23-25 degree Celcius
2. Ironing and washing their cloths at night
3. Boiling water during off peak hours
4. Operating their machines or factories at night (large power users like cement manufacturers and steel millers).

Earthquake: No Signs of Structural Damage To Kenyir Dam https://www.tnb.com.my/highlights/earthquake-no-signs-of-structural-damage-to-kenyir-dam

A preliminary inspection of the Sultan Mahmud Hydro Electric Power Station in Kenyir (Kenyir Dam) reveals that there is no physical impact or signs of structural damage that may affect the dam’s integrity and stability.

During the earthquake (at 9.25pm, 23rd February 2016 as reported by the Malaysian Metrological Department), the dam’s instrumentation detected a very low seismic activity, well below the safe dam design limit. Due to the incident, a thorough inspection of the dam and its associated facilities is being carried out.

All the dams built by TNB are designed to withstand low to moderate seismic activity in accordance with international standard.

“We have completed a smart meter/AMI ‘live’ pilot project to understand the technologies, regulatory and customer challenges and we will be embarking on the AMI on a larger scale in the near future,” he said at the AESIEAP CEO Conference 2015 in Chiang Mai, Thailand on Monday.

AESIEAP or Executive Committee Member of Association of the Electricity Supply industry of East Asia and the Western Pacific has since its inception in 1975, worked to foster cooperation and exchange of expertise and technology among entities in the electricity supply industry.

Ir. Azman noted that many countries in the Asia Pacific, notably Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Korea are deploying smart meters on a large scale to leverage its capabilities in grid control and monitoring.

At the same time, the utilities in the region are exploring added-value services such as Customer Energy Portal, Demand Response, Enhanced Time of Use (TOU) tariff, Critical Peak pricing (CPP), and Net Energy metering (NEM), added.

Other related aspects on sustainability, such as renewable energy plan and initiative, energy efficiency program and long term energy options were also discussed by the regional countries members at the conference.
