Energy, Utilities, & Environmental Services

Sector Introduction: 2016

Following a worldwide development, reflecting global climate change and its implications for humankind, the Malaysian government acknowledges green economy as top priority for a stable growth. Focussing on green technologies, energy efficiency as well as on productivity and innovative utilities, Malaysia's ultimate goal is to position itself as a "Green Technology Hub for the ASEAN region". The target for renewable energy generation has been set to 2080 MW or 11% by 2020. Additionally, the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water will implement various projects, such as the provision of clean water supply coming at a cost of MYR 877 million as well as increase the reliability of electricity supply with an investment of MYR 515 million.

Arisen out of the awareness that green technologies have a high and cost-effective return on investment in the long run, more and more private households and corporate entities commit themselves to green thinking and sustainable investment in their own infrastructure.

From large-scale alternative energy plants to spare parts and supply equipment for environmental technologies, the Malaysian green economy sector bears huge potential for European companies, enjoying a world-wide reputation in this field. The main event in this year's SEBSEAM- M Calendar is the IGEM 2017, where local and international industry leaders and experts from the public and private sector come together in order to exchange their experiences and knowledge on how to grasp the lucrative opportunities in the green market in Malaysia and beyond.
