The energy sector is a major contributor to climate change, accounting for more than two-thirds of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions. As Malaysia navigates its way towards a low-carbon energy source, inclusive and sustainable strategies are critical in achieving shared goals for both power producers and consumers.
With the government announcing an updated Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) of an unconditional reduction of carbon intensity of 45% by 2030, the energy sector will have to transition into a low carbon industry for complete long-term decarbonisation. The future of coal power and gas as a transitional fuel continues to be debated. Renewable energy has taken an unprecedented placing globally, regionally as well as in Malaysia. This webinar aims to discuss pathways to net zero goals, share best practices, exchange views and aspirations as well as to explore potential collaboration in areas of New and Renewable Energy.
Join us for an informative session that will delve deeper into the following topics:
