Completed in Aug 2022, Pekat's 23-acre solar PV asset at Proton's Tanjung Malim plant has the potential to provide annual energy savings of RM5.85 million for the automaker, and reduces carbon dioxide emissions from the facility by up to 11,536 tonnes per annum.

The cabinet has just approved the expansion plans for the Penang airport (RM 1B).

https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2024/02/27/green-light-for-penang-international-airport-expansion-project

Ten years ago in 2014, Tan Sri Bashir installed solar power on KLIA that generated 26MW of energy that saved more than RM 2M of energy costs per year...plus other green technology that put KLIA and KLIA2 the most energy-efficient airport in Malaysia.

Today, let's watch how energy-efficient is the new Airports(MAHB) team...knowing that...
Penang is a major industrial hub, contributing significantly to the national economy and relying solely on an aging power plant (Sultan Abdul Halim power station) that has faced several power outages. There are major concerns on its reliability and potential power disruptions....

The future energy sufficiency of Penang for its factories and International airport depends on the successful implementation of these solutions and the ability to meet the ever-increasing demand of green energy....

Locally, MFCB and Pekat Bhd have established a 55:45 joint venture (JV) called MFP Solar Sdn Bhd to undertake solar projects of up to 10MW in Malaysia, believed to give far better investment returns of 10% to 12%. MFP Solar would be an engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning contractor to undertake the installation of solar power projects on rooftops of industrial and commercial buildings under various models, namely build–operate–transfer, outright sale or leasing. MFCB would ride on Pekat Teknologi’s vast experience in the solar industry. For a start, the JV intends to tap multinational companies for opportunities.

In 2022, MPF-Pekat installed solar PV on 16 sewage plants of IWK (project value RM18.1 million of estimated energy generation: 8 GWh per annum).

Is the solar panel industry a growth sector in Malaysia this year?

G Gemini: Yes, the solar panel industry is expected to be a strong growth sector in Malaysia in 2024 and beyond. Here are some of the factors driving this growth:

Government support: The Malaysian government has ambitious renewable energy targets and has implemented various policies to support the solar industry, such as the Net Energy Metering (NEM) program and the Large Scale Solar (LSS) program. These programs provide financial incentives for businesses and individuals to install solar panels.

Declining solar panel costs: The cost of solar panels has been declining steadily over the past few years, making them more affordable for businesses and individuals.

Increasing awareness of climate change: Malaysians are becoming increasingly aware of the need to address climate change, and solar energy is seen as a clean and sustainable alternative to fossil fuels.

Strong economic growth: Malaysia's economy is expected to grow by around 4% in 2024, which will boost demand for energy. Solar energy can help to meet this demand in a sustainable way.

Here are some of the specific predictions for the growth of the solar panel industry in Malaysia:

Mordor Intelligence predicts that the Malaysian solar energy market will grow at a CAGR of more than 9% during the period 2023-2028.

HLIB Research expects the renewable energy industry in Malaysia to see strong growth in 2024, driven by the Corporate Green Power Programme (CGPP), which is expected to generate between RM2.7 billion to RM3 billion of EPCC contract flows.

Overall, the outlook for the solar panel industry in Malaysia is very positive. The government's support, declining costs, and increasing awareness of climate change are all factors that are likely to drive growth in the sector in the coming years.

Zero Flaring initiative ZF20230 commits governments and oil companies to not routinely flare gas in any new oilfield development and end existing routine flaring by 2030 at the latest. Oil companies are now requiring their FPSOs to include closed flare systems, reinjection, the ability to use the gas for power generation or similar and are also penalising their FPSO providers to high levels of flaring through charter rate reductions.

From ChatGPT:
How an FPSO could contribute to carbon capture:
1. CO2 Capture: The FPSO can incorporate a CO2 capture system to separate carbon dioxide from the produced hydrocarbons, typically from the flue gas emitted during the combustion process of natural gas (gas is produced in an oil extraction process).
2. Compression: Once the CO2 is captured, it needs to be compressed for transportation and storage. The FPSO can be equipped with onboard compression facilities to increase the pressure of the captured CO2, making it suitable for transportation via pipelines or tankers. Navigator Gas LLC is a liquefied gas shipping company with a global market and the world's largest fleet of large, sophisticated gas shipping vessels.

It is imperative that FPSOs are upgraded to reduce their carbon footprint. The O&G authorities are measuring their carbon dioxide tonne per barrel of oil produced when sanctioning new fields, and thus potentially driving forward change.

This is long term but it is a plan.
We cannot ignore this transition to clean energy and also this world still relies heavily on oil and gas.
