Malaysia (2012)

Energy profile
  • INDC of Malaysia

    Type: 
    National Plan
    Type of National plan: 
    Country: 

    Malaysia intends to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity of GDP by 45% by 2030 relative to the emissions intensity of GDP in 2005. This consist of 35% on an unconditional basis and a further 10% is condition upon receipt of climate finance, technology transfer and capacity building from developed countries.The INDC also includes a section on adaptation.

  • Nitto Energy Monitoring System (NEMS)

    Type: 
    Product

    The efficient use of energy is becoming crucial for most organizations not only to reduce wastage and consumption but more importantly, to save costs and improve competitiveness. Besides helping the environment, energy efficiency is also vital to most industries because the rising costs of electricity is cutting into their margins resulting in lower earnings.

  • UniGreen Energy Saving Ceiling Fan

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology: 

    A ceiling fan can offer energy savings all year round. In warm weather, a fan can make a room 7 to 10 degrees cooler allowing you to set your thermostat higher and save up to 40% on air conditioning bills. In the winter, you can run your fans in reverse to reclaim the hot air trapped near the ceiling. You can set your thermostats lower and save on heating costs as the fan provides even, comfortable temperatures throughout the room. Either way, you conserve valuable energy making a ceiling fan a wise investment for you and the environment.

    The Company was founded in 1952 as See Yong Construction. In 1980, it was restructured to acquire its present name of "See Yong & Son Construction SDN BHD” or "SYS” for short. SYS is well known in river and coastal projects as well as in irrigation and drainage throughout the Peninsular Malaysia, and is active in Sarawak since 1983.  It is also active in marine projects such as construction of jetty, wharf and breakwaters.

  • Climate Change Mitigation through Reduced-Impact Logging and the Hierarchy of Production Forest Management

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, January 20, 2012
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    The proposed hierarchy of production forest management provides a modus operandi for forest concessions to move incrementally towards sustainable forest management via reduced-impact logging (RIL) and forest certification. RIL carbon registration components consist of developing a credible baseline, additionality and leakage arguments around the business-as-usual scenario by quantifying historical forest inventory and production records, forest infrastructure records and damage to the residual forest.

  • Agricultural vulnerability and adaptation to climatic changes in Malaysia: review on paddy sector

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, January 1, 2013
    Objective: 
    Approach: 

    This paper provides a brief review on the global and Malaysian perspective of climate change, and its impacts on Malaysian agriculture and relevant adaptation practices. It also provides policy recommendations for better coping with the changing nature of climatic factors. Changing climate has had negative impacts on Malaysian agriculture, including: water stress; worsening soil condition, disease, pest outbreaks on crops and livestock; and sea-level rise.

  • Tropical forestry and carbon sequestration

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, January 1, 2001
    Objective: 

    This paper examines strategies for carbon sequestration, and how this is provided for under the Kyoto Protocol, with particularly attention to Malaysia's carbon sequestration strategies. Carbon sequestration is a significant technique that plays a major role in bringing down global warming. Since it is comparatively cost effective and multi beneficial, "Annex 1" countries of the Kyoto Protocol have shown their interests in initiating carbon sequestration projects with Non-Annex 1 countries.

  • A Comparative Analysis of the "Development Dividend" of Clean Development Mechanism Projects in Six Host Countries

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, January 1, 2010
    Objective: 

    Reform of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is a key issue in advancing the objectives of the Kyoto Protocol. The CDM was created with the mutual objectives of providing cost-effective abatement opportunities for industrialized countries and to advance sustainable development in developing countries. Current literature, however, suggests that the CDM is failing to deliver on its promise of a "development dividend". This article compares and contrasts different host-country approval processes and investigates how this is reflected in CDM project quality.

  • The economic case for low carbon cities

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday, November 1, 2014
    Objective: 

    This paper compares the opportunities or economically attractive low-carbon investment opportunities in five cities: Leeds in the UK, Kolkata in India, Lima in Peru, Johor Bahru in Malaysia and Palembang in Indonesia. This paper compares the results of these studies and argues that there is a compelling economic case for cities in both developed and developing country contexts to invest, at scale, in cost-effective forms of low-carbon development.
