INTRODUCTION FOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY, CONSERVATION & OPTIMIZATION FOR MALAYSIAN INDUSTRIES

From the national perspective, the importance of energy conservation (EC) cannot be overemphasized. The benefits of energy conservation are significant to the nation’s economy and performance in the management of its environment. Improving energy efficiency will lead to      significant cost-savings and thereby improving competitiveness. Energy conservation activities will also help to conserve the usage of the nation’s limited natural resources and at the same time reduce the negative environmental impacts. The implementation of energy efficiency (EE) programs will focus on energy-saving features in the industrial and commercial sectors. In this regard, EE features in buildings and establishing comprehensive energy management system will be encouraged. In addition, the industrial sector will be encouraged to implement EE measures including improvements in plant, equipment and processes.
