Image module
  1. Embarked under the RMK11 Energy Efficiency Projects (2016 – 2020).
  2. Energy Audit Conditional Grant quota were only opened for year 2016-2018 which are already fully taken.
  3. 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.
  4. In general the project component consists of ;
  • Energy Auditing (3 years project starting in 2016 – 2018.)
  • Implementation of the Energy Saving Measures, including Monitoring & Reporting (until 2020).
  • Capacity building & trainings.
  1. Open to any existing commercial and industrial building which are using electrical energy ≥100,000kWh per month
  2. SEDA Malaysia to promote, facilitate and process the application by the commercial buildings owner.
