RE valley energy project in North of Sabah 1.

Purpose of concept paper To provide an overview on the development of RE projects in North of Sabah The status of energy in Malaysia The status of energy in Sabah 2. Background of Project The development of RE in Sabah SIRIM involvement in RE projects through TechnoFund Location of RE projects Kota Marudu, Kudat & Kota Belud TOB poor infra limited grid electricity poor communication fisheries coconut limited industries palm oil Core problems potential = silica sand dev. at Pulau Balambangan population - scattered, <10k for TOB RMK10=RM3.6b to research further on money potential biomass=more at Sandakan & Tawau higher cost for projects to be installed at Pulau Bangi education agri Sabah Corridor managed by SEDIA tourism SME Kementerian Luar Bandar to research further on funding potential solar drying link with NKRA - income generation (high impact) 3. Why North Sabah Pitas & Kudat - anchovies & salted fish industries rain affect the ind Situational analysis - logframe eco-tourism power supply will spur economic activities Opportunities Sandakan & Semporna transportation issue wind & ocean energy harvesting at TOB hydro, ocean, wind, solar, wave & biomass resources at TOB hybrid RE technology green furniture project using SIRIM technology to build plant 2700 diesel boat engines insufficient electricity supply limited grid electricity partnership with SREP demand what to power? land acquisition majority of land owned by individuals funding issues/ challenges generator why no plan for Kudat by SESB Pulau Bangi solar pv economic contribution projection of these projects Revenue model SREP a. To promote local economic growth through SMEs development in manufacturing, eco-tourism & agriculture industries b. To demonstrate the viability of sustaining energy from renewable resources in rural communities of TOB Kota Marudu, Kudat & Kota Belud c. To deploy RE technologies for energy needs by rural communities enhancement of agriculture business
