SEDA Malaysia: ISES 2014

The 2nd International Sustainable Energy Summit (ISES 2014) will be held at Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa, Petaling Jaya, Selangor this 18-19 March 2014. This summit is organized by Sustainable Energy Development Authority Malaysia (SEDA Malaysia) and supported by the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water (KeTTHA) Malaysia. This biennial event targets to update on the industry development and promote awareness to the various stakeholders as well as the public on sustainable energy. This summit can provide platform for the exchange of sustainable energy information and network opportunities. It was gloriously held in 2012 and now is time for the second summit to facilitate better growth of sustainable energy measures in Malaysia.
ISES 2012
The theme for ISES 2014 is “Currency of Autonomy: Sustainable Energy” in line with SEDA Malaysia’s vision to promote the deployment of sustainable energy measures as part of the solution towards achieving energy security and autonomy. This theme reflects the unpredictable global scenario of energy prices, the reducing supply of fossil fuels and environmental costs of these fuels to the surrounding. It is a great timing for Malaysia to transform its current energy landscape to include sustainable energy in their energy portfolio. Throughout this summit, case studies, lesson learned, new invention, innovative strategies and practical solutions will be presented by renowned speakers from all over the world to enhance participant’s knowledge. This sharing of idea is crucial to the development of renewable energy and energy efficiency industry particularly in Malaysia.
SEDA Malaysia will provide updates on the latest development of renewable energy and energy efficiency in the country with respect to the legal framework and the implementation. Other notable topics presented include green financing, renewable energy and energy efficiency that are anticipated to be a holistic solution to energy requirement globally. Among the speakers and their topics are Julia Hamm, Executive Director of Solar Electric Power Association, USA with the title “Business Models on Solar PV Plants on Utility Scale” and Sunil Gupta, Global Head of Technology & Clean Tech Banking, Standard Chartered Bank Singapore with his topic, “Developing Bankable Renewable Energy Projects”. Visit www.ises.gov.my for full list of speakers and their topics for the energy summit.

The table below is the list of conference fee for those interested, be it public or industry players who are concerned with the sharing of knowledge regarding renewable energy and energy efficiency matters:
Throughout this summit, organisations related to renewable energy and energy efficiency will showcase their products and services. ISES 2012 that was held two years ago attracted more than 30 companies from Malaysia and abroad and it has provided ample opportunities for them to promote and enhance their presence in the Malaysian market.

About SEDA Malaysia, the organizer.
SEDA Malaysia is the implementer of Feed-in Tariff program for development of Renewable Energy in Malaysia. Malaysia's Feed-in Tariff (FiT) system obligates the Distribution Licensees (DLs) such as TNB to buy from renewable energy producers the electricity produced from renewable resources (renewable energy) and sets the FiT rates. Under the law the DLs will pay for renewable energy supplied to the electricity grid for a specific duration. By guaranteeing access to the grid and setting a favourable price per unit of renewable energy, the FiT mechanism would ensure that renewable energy becomes a viable and sound long-term investment for company industries and also for individuals.

The Cabinet has also agreed for the 1% surcharge on consumers’ electricity bills that has been gazetted and collected from consumers. This 1% surcharge is needed to achieve the target capacity of renewable energy in the long run. As of 2013, 1% surcharge is still imposed on customers if their monthly electricity consumption exceeds 300 kWh or RM 77 a month. This money is channelled into the Renewable Energy Fund and administered by SEDA Malaysia to pay the premium Feed-in Tariff rate to those producers who generate electricity at homes or in industrial companies. But as of January 2014, this tariff will increase by 0.6% to be 1.6 % for current electricity users. This increase will also affect the consumers in Sabah as they are charged with 1.6% of their electricity bills for the first time. Please refer to www.seda.gov.my for more details and information.
Thank you for your time in reading this, I will see you at the 2nd International Sustainable Energy Summit (ISES 2024) at Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa, Petaling Jaya on the 18-19 March 2014. I want to know more about renewable energy and energy efficiency measures taken by foreign countries and together help Malaysia achieve energy autonomy and security in the long run. Take care and God bless, see you there!
