Boosting eco-tourism, guiding small businesses for manufacturing green products, transitioning to a circular economy, and building green cities are all parts of becoming an eco-friendly region. Among the renewable energy sources, hydropower is most commonly used with solar, wind, natural gas, geothermal, and biomass.

By 2025, all the rural households of Indonesia’s Kalimantan, Maluku, Sulawesi, and West Papua, Brunei Darussalam, East Malaysia’s Sabah, Labuan, and Sarawak, Philippines’ Palawan and Mindanao will receive electricity from renewable energy.

Various projects have been initiated under Vision 2025 including, the Trans-Borneo Power Grid Sarawak-West Kalimantan Interconnection Project, North Kalimantan Power Grid Interconnection Project, Indonesia, Visayas–Mindanao Interconnection Project, Philippines, Limbang Hydro Project 1 (Sarawak–Sabah Interconnection), Malaysia, Borneo–Mindanao power interconnection project, Sabah-Palawan project among others.

“In addition to employment and greater electrification coverage, we are also recording sustainability benefits. We were able to decarbonize our power system by lowering our grid carbon emission intensity by 68 percent since 2010,” said Sarawak’s utility minister, Datuk Seri Dr. Stephen Rundi Utom.

He said, “We are committed to maximizing our pursuit of balanced and holistic RE development to achieve energy security, energy reliability, and energy affordability for Sarawak. We will continue to maintain Sarawak’s position as the country’s largest renewable energy provider.”

Recently, Samaiden Group partnered with Sinowaja for providing solar photovoltaic (PV) solutions in East Malaysia. LSS@MenTARI large-scale solar programme of Malaysia offers a 1,000 MW solar quota which is its largest till now.

“With sustainability being the forefront of Sarawak’s development agenda, alongside its possession of abundant natural resources, we anticipate substantial investments in the RE industry from both the private and public sectors in the coming years, to electrify the region with clean energy,” said Chow Pui Hee, Group Managing Director of Samaiden. 

A few days ago, Japan and Indonesia also inked an MoC to work on the energy transition process of Indonesia which will develop hydrogen, ammonia fuel, and others.
