Supply Agreement Renewable Energy Malaysia

Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) has signed an agreement with Malaysia Airlines Berhad (MAB) to install solar modules on four MAB buildings at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) through the GSPARX Sdn Bhd Renewable Energy Retail Arm. This concept is in line with the introduction of solar power generation in Malaysia in the sense of grid parity, where the cost per kilowatt hour (KWh), calculated on the principle of level energy costs (LCOE), is the same as the cost per KWh-electricity produced from conventional fuels, namely coal and gas. Amir Hamzah added that TNB is continuously relying on its renewable energy (UC) portfolio in Switzerland and abroad to reach 1,700 MW by 2025 and support the national target of 20% UA by 2025. According to Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change (MESTECC) Minister YB Yeo Bee Yin, SARE allows consumers to take advantage of the solar energy produced by the sun-permeable solar installation without having to pay for the system. The project will benefit the CSA in its long-term quest to reduce CO2 emissions. When completed in April 2021, the green energy produced by the project is expected to offset approximately 2,022 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions in the first year, or about 56,638 tonnes of emissions by 2050. This equates to approximately 12,197 cars that were removed from the road or pushed 933,520 trees. With the growing popularity of the Solar Power Purchase Agreement (”PPA”) scheme in Malaysia as an alternative approach for business owners to move to green energy tour, Solar Photovoltaic (PV) investment investors (”investor”) are beginning to realize that one of the biggest pitfalls in the AAE regime is the risk of failure that can arise if the owner of the solar cum (”offtaker”) buyer refuses to pay the investor or deliberately delay the payment to the investor. Unlike the electricity supply contract between the distributor, Tenaga Nasional Berhad (”TNB”) and the customer for the supply of ordinary electricity to the site, TNB is granted the right to separate this electricity supply in the event of non-payment. Such a right undoubtedly has a direct impact on the offtaker, as its daily operation is severely interrupted without the power supply. However, the investor does not have such a right to enter into a PPP agreement under the law. In the event of a default, the only remedy granted to the investor is to sue the offtaker, but such a remediation measure may not be in the best interest of the investor, since this exercise is both time and resource-intensive and cannot prompt the offtaker to take immediate corrective action to compensate the investor.

, as the Offtaker is still in a position to do so until the share is sold. , to carry out its current operation. It takes 4 to 6 months for the SARE agreement to be signed for the system to be in place, depending on the size of the project. During this period, the project of process and internal details, request for administration and authorization, purchase of photovoltaic panels and inverters, mobilization and installation. After the installation of PV, GSPARX is coordinated with the TNB network for the installation of meters. Once the installation is complete, the TNB count begins to commission the photovoltaic installation according to the billing cycle until the end of the contract. The Renewable Energy Supply Agreement (SARE) in Malaysia is a programme that covers related agreements and policies for the supply and consumption of renewable energy (UC) in Malaysia.
