Application of Energy Efficiency Improvement to Low Carbon Societies in Malaysia

Atmospheric and Thermal Environmental Engineering, Division of Environmental Systems Engineering, Department of Environmental Engineering, Graduate School of Engineering
Place of stay: Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Skudai, Malaysia
Term: February 2, 2012 - February 28, 2012
In February this year, I undertook my internship at my host organization, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia here in Skudai, Malaysia as part of the HSE internship programme. The main objective was to evaluate technology adoption and sustainable practices in the Malaysian industrial sector that can lead to Greenhouse gas emission reduction. The study will cover possible paradigm shifts in the type of industries and technologies that will be implemented in the coming years. Naturally, the strategies proposed for the promotion of Low-Carbon Society (LCS) in Malaysia would be different from that of other countries because of the difference in natural environment and economic activities. For this reason, the internship focused on data collection activities and discussions with key persons such as policy makers and representatives from Malaysian government representatives from Energy Commission, Department of Environment and research institutions such as the Malaysia Green Technology Corporation. The internship was worthwhile as it broadened my point of view regarding the importance of Low carbon society implementation for future and existing societies all over the world.
