Worldwide Holdings Berhad has signed four Memorandum of Understanding (MoUs) to discuss collaboration in the development of Selangor’s solar energy projects. Yang Berhormat Dato’Haji Haris Kassim, Selangor’s State Secretary, witnessed the signing of four MoUs that will further promote smart energy solutions in Selangor and renewable energy in Selangor. The ceremony was held at Glenmarie Hotel & Golf Resort.
The ceremony saw the signing of two MoUs related to the development and operation of an independent power plant that generates electricity from a floating solar farm at Cyberjaya. This energy will be distributed to off-takers, and private companies that are looking to demonstrate their commitment to clean energy. The Corporate Green Power Programme (CGPP) is an Energy Commission initiative that allows business entities to promote and use renewable energy in their business operations. This project aims to raise Cyberjaya’s reputation as a digital hub that offers reliable, green energy solutions.
A Consortium made up of Worldwide Holdings, Dynac Sdn Bhd, as well as Majulia Sdn Bhd will spearhead the project. It will cost approximately RM100m. Datin Paduka Norazlina Zakaria was the Group Chief Executive Officer at Worldwide Holdings. He signed the MOU with Cyberview Sdn. Bhd., Cyberjaya’s primary technology hub enabler, signed the MOU with Cyberview Sdn Bhd, Global Energy Storage Malaysia, Wistron Technology Malaysia Sdn Bhd, PKNS Real Estate Sdn Bhd, and Kumpulan Perangsang Selangor Berhad.
Worldwide Holdings also signed two MOUs to further cement its role as the driving force of green energy in the state of Selangor. These MOUs will allow the conglomerate to spearhead the installation of solar PV cells at residential and state buildings. These MOUs were signed with PKNS Realty Sdn. Bhd. to develop self-consumption solar investment and Laman Seri Business Park Management Body For Net Energy Metering, solar investments, and roof leasing agreements, respectively.
Dato’ Haji Harris stated, “These projects are in line with the national development agenda and Smart Selangor Blueprint will contribute to Malaysian efforts to reduce CO2 emissions and carbon footprint by 45% by 2030. These projects also reinforce Selangor’s commitment to sustainability and green electricity.”
Datin Paduka Norazlina adds, “The signing of these MOUs between these different companies is a testament to Worldwide Holdings’ ability to spearhead large energy infrastructure projects in relation to renewable energy promotion, considering that we only started our active participation in 2018.”
Worldwide Holdings is looking forward to helping Malaysia develop and grow renewable energy, and meeting the growing demand of sustainable energy solutions.
