RMK-12 ENERGY AUDIT CONDITIONAL GRANT (EACG) AND ENERGY MANAGEMENT PROJECT

As a continuity from Energy Audit Conditional Grant under RMK-11 Energy Efficiency Projects for year 2016-2020, the Energy Audit Conditional Grant (EACG 2.0) is an energy efficiency programme under the 12th Malaysia Plan (RMK-12) for the implementation year of 2021-2025. This programme is supported by grants which were allocated for the year 2021 until 2025 to commercial and industrial sectors to collaborate with local Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) registered with the Energy Commission (ST) to conduct energy audit in their buildings.

The programme is executed by Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources (KeTSA). SEDA Malaysia is the implementing agency and ST is the coordinator for this program. SEDA Malaysia is the implementing agency for both commercial and industrial sector.

 Implementation of project consists of:

  • Executing Ministry: Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources
  • Secretariat: Energy Commission
  • Implementing agency: SEDA Malaysia (Commercial & Industrial Sector)

 

ELIGIBILTY

  1. Any installation (industrial and commercial) which receives electrical energy from a licensee or supply authority with a total electrical energy consumption equal to or exceeding 3,000,000 kWh as measured at one metering point or more over any period not exceeding six consecutive months;
  2. Any installation which is used, worked or operated by a private installation licensee with a total net electrical energy generation equal to or exceeding 3,000,000 kWh over any period not exceeding six consecutive months;
  3. Installation listed under the Efficient Management of Electrical Energy Regulation 2008 (EMEER) by Energy Commission, are eligible to apply (for Peninsular and Sabah);
  4. For Sarawak state, the applicants must submit the latest electricity bill (SEB) for 6 consecutive months whereby the total 6 months consumption shall be equal or higher than 3,000,000 kWh.

 

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

  1. Applicant shall appoint or designate a Registered Electrical Energy Manager (REEM) to carry out the functions and duties (for Peninsular and Sabah);
  2. The Energy audit exercise must be completed within two (2) months starting from the date of contract signing;
  3. One owner/operator can apply for one installation only and must appoint an Energy Service Company (ESCO) registered with Energy Commission or Electrical Inspectorate Unit, EIU (for Sarawak only) for the energy audit implementation. (List of the ESCO can be referred via st.gov.my/web/consumer/esco )
  4. Energy audit grant will be provided to eligible applicant. However, applicants need to be agreed and ready to implement the energy saving measures for which the cost of implementation is equal, or more than the received amount of energy audit grant (The implementation cost could be borne by applicant);
  5. The implementations of the energy saving measures are according to energy audit report and shall be within 3 years after the completion of energy audit. However, the No Cost Energy Saving Measures should be implemented immediately after acceptance of the energy audit final report for the benefits of the applicant;
  6. The installation must come with a sub-metering for energy consumption monitoring purpose within contract period (3 years) after the energy audit is completely done.

 

Energy audit is a systematic process to understand how and where the energy being used, to explore on how to manage it and identify the energy savings potential. In general, the project components consist of:

  1. Implementation of Energy Audit by the ESCO appointed by the installation owner/operator which include both areas of electrical and thermal energy (if any); 
  2. Implementation of the Energy Saving Measures by the installation owner/operator with the investment cost must equal or more than the received grant value, including Monitoring & Reporting (for 3 years after energy audit); and 
  3. Capacity building & trainings of energy audit and energy management of electrical and thermal.

Objectives

  • To provide financial facility (assistance) through the 5 years (2021-2025) conditional grant;
  • As a catalyst for the implementation of energy audits and to identify the total energy consumption as well as setting up the baselines for industrial and commercial buildings;
  • To provide a platform and facilitation for the implementation the energy saving measures (ESM) according to the outcome of energy audit report;
  • Capacity development for building owner and ESCOs, in order to fulfil the current and future demand of energy management in industrial and commercial sector; and
  • To foster awareness on the importance of energy management among the industrial and commercial building owners in Malaysia in order to reduce the electricity consumption.
