KUCHING, Sept 23: Sarawak is set to become a member of the National Energy Council, as confirmed by Premier Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg.

Abang Johari revealed that on Sept 16, Prime Minister Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who serves as the council’s chairman, directed Economy Minister Rafizi Ramli to appoint a representative from Sarawak to join the council.

“Sarawak is the only region that prioritises environmentally friendly energy, such as green energy.

“We have our own technology and methods for carbon mitigation, including the production of renewable energy from hydro, solar, wind, and hydrogen.

“Recently, we have also introduced a new approach that involves the use of special biomass wood pellets to generate energy,” he explained to reporters after officiating the Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Convention for the Southern Zone, held at Hikmah Exchange.

The National Energy Council was initially proposed in September 2022, following the launch of the National Energy Policy 2022-2040.

Its establishment aims to facilitate the implementation of the National Energy Transition Roadmap (NETR). — DayakDaily
