Reservoir Link Energy Bhd, an energy-related services provider, through the consortium, which comprises its wholly-owned subsidiary Reservoir Link Renewable Sdn Bhd along with Sumitomo Corporation and Maqo Engineering Sdn Bhd, has been selected as a solar power producer by the Energy Commission under the Corporate Green Power Programme (CGPP).
Applications for the CGPP are still ongoing and will conclude on 31 December 2023 or until the total allocation quota of 800MW has been fully subscribed. Of the 71 applications submitted, 22 were selected as solar power producers with a combined export capacity of over 560MW. The balance quota of 236.58MW has yet to be assigned. Of the 22 selected, the majority have been allocated with the maximum export capacity of 30MW including this Reservoir Link-led consortium.
Reservoir Link Executive Director Thien Chiet Chai said, “We are pleased to announce that we will be involved in the CGPP working closely alongside our partners Sumitomo Corporation and Maqo Engineering. This initiative along with the targets set forth by the local government has been promoting the usage of renewable energy and sustainable business operations which will likely spearhead the nation’s continuous efforts towards implementing more renewable solutions. Reservoir Link believes that this is just the tip of the iceberg. We foresee that there will be more activities coming from the renewable energy space over the coming years to support Malaysia’s agenda which will benefit us given our involvement in renewable energy.”
