“Environment and Energy should bring about fundamental changes in both product design and technology” ~ UNIDO
UNIDO’s Strategic Long-term Vision Statement strongly reaffirms these calls by the United Nations General Assembly and WSSD. It states that in the long run the focus of UNIDO activities in the thematic programme “Environment and Energy” should be to bring about fundamental changes in both product design and technology, which provide for resource sustainability. As outlined in the Strategic Long-term Vision Statement, resource sustainability involves four steps:
- continuing to reduce the usage of materials and energy through cleaner production processes to enhance production efficiency and reduce effluents of hazardous and toxic chemicals;
- moving towards circular flows of materials by promoting more strongly their continued reuse and recycling;
- shifting from nonrenewable to renewable sources of energy;
- changing the emphasis from selling products to supplying services.

Our initiative aims to facilitate Energy Efficiency (EE) improvement in the industrial sector (with a focus on small & medium enterprises) through supporting the implementation of national energy management standard and energy efficiency services for Malaysian industry as well as the creation of demonstration projects.
We hope to promote energy efficiency improvements in the Malaysian manufacturing sector through the implementation of national energy management standards and application of system optimization.
|ENERGY MANAGEMENT STANDARDS
(MS ISO 50001)
There are many benefits to Malaysia due to our initiative. Below we will list a few;
- Creation of a cadre of Malaysian experts in energy management and system optimization
- Meeting the energy and climate challenges
- Shared development of high value materials/softwares and program implementation experiences with other countries
- Access to internationally recognized UNIDO experts with extensive industrial experience who will train national experts on practical approach to Energy Management and System Optimization
- Provide technical assistance to industries for implementation of the new ISO 50001 Energy Management Standard
- Creation of a sustained local market for EE services based on enabling regulatory and financing environment
- Industries will be recognized both nationally and internationally for their accomplishments in going “green”
In order to achieve the project objective, it is expected that the five project components will result in the following outcomes.
|Development efficiency policy and plan||Enhanced regulatory framework facilitating increased implementation of EE in the industrial sector|
|Awareness creation on energy management and system optimization||Widespread awareness among SMEs and larger industries of the benefits of energy efficiency; strong interest by industry (and other sectors participating in EnMS, such as institutional and government) in energy management, systems optimization as well as energy efficient equipment and services in general|
|Energy management systems||A cadre of highly specialized energy management experts from the public and private sectors is available as a long-term technical resources to industry and the country|
|Systems optimization||A cadre of highly systems optimization experts from the public and private sectors is available as a long-term technical resources to industry and the country|
|Access to finance for industrial EE improvement||SMEs and larger industries have coordinated access to increased technical and financial assistance for implementing energy efficiency projects, including system optimization|

KeTTHA – Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water
The role of Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water (KeTTHA, Kementerian Tenaga, Teknologi Hijau dan Air Malaysia) is to facilitate and regulate the electricity sectors in the country, to ensure affordable energy is available to consumers throughout the country (by reviewing tariffs imposed by the utilities and monitoring standards of the utilities), to monitor energy programmes and to promote energy efficiency and renewable energy. As the country is moving towards ‘green technology’, the Ministry of Water, Energy and Communications (MEWC) was re-branded as KeTTHA in April 2009. The Ministry, in coordination with the Economic Planning Unit (of the Prime Minister’s Office), provides the general direction, strategies and determines the level of implementation. In general, these strategies are largely outlined in Five-Year Development Plans. KeTTHA is working on the National Energy Efficiency Act based on the National Energy Efficiency Master Plan (NEEMP) and a study has been commissioned to restructure and realign the Malaysian electricity sector. This project will provide input to the industrial EE policy and revised incentive schemes to facilitate the implementation of the EE Act.
