KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 22 (Bernama) -- The Energy Management Gold Standard (EMGS) Award was presented to 24 organisations at the International Greentech and Eco Products Exhibition and Conference Malaysia (IGEM) 2018 recently. 

Six of these organisations were certified for two-star rating and 18 certified for one-star rating.

The award was given under the ASEAN Energy Management Scheme (AEMAS) to end-users which have successfully implemented a sustainable energy management system according to the scheme’s requirement.

EMGS is a regional recognition programme with the objective of managing and reducing energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions in the ASEAN region. 

Organisations certified for two-star rating are expected to achieve the minimum of five per cent energy reduction each year.

According to a statement, GreenTech Malaysia has been appointed by the ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE) as the country coordinator and certification body.

GreenTech Malaysia’s role is to promote, facilitate and process the application made by the end-users from industry or commercial buildings in Malaysia.

Energy savings achieved under the EMGS programme is in line with Malaysia’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emission intensity of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by up to 45 per cent by 2030 relative to the 2005 levels.

The Ministry of Health is committed to the EMGS programme and has been instrumental in displaying the government’s initiatives in energy reduction and climate change mitigation.

Out of the 182 assessments completed under EMGS since 2011, 90 per cent were done at the government hospitals.

Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change Deputy Minister, Isnaraissah Munirah Majilis officiated at the awards ceremony. Also present was Greentech Malaysia’s CEO, Dr Mohd Azman Zainul Abidin.

GreenTech Malaysia has certified some 140 organisations since 2011, and currently there are more than 1,300 certified energy managers in the country.

To date, AEMAS has reduced energy consumption by approximately 46.5 million kWh annually for its implementers in Malaysia, saving more than RM19.4 million and reducing 32,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year.
