Sustainability Report 2015-2016
Danish Energy Efficiency Partners Sdn Bhd (DEEP), which is a partnership between Danish Management Group A/S and Danish Climate Investment Fund, managed by Investment Fund for Developing Countries (IFU) as partner is now winning nod of approval, and clients, with a very smart and yet simple concept through a one-stop-shop facility for energy efficiency in buildings – also known as ‘retrofitting’ – with the State of Malacca as first client. The State of Malacca entered into a contract with DEEP in June 2015 under the program Melaka Building Energy Efficiency, with the objective to save energy in 9 state-owned buildings by installing and financing energy efficient technologies and services, becoming the first showcase in the region for the new Danish solution. The program has been structured as a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model.
The 9 state-owned buildings have been split into 2 phases; Phase 1 containing 3 buildings and Phase 2 a further 6. The project’s phase 1 has been completed and the savings are in place. As for Phase 2, the works are beginning this month (January 2017) and it is expected to be completed by year-end. In total, the 9 buildings are expected to reduce energy consumption by 7.5 Million kWh/year - saving Melaka about RM 3.5 Million/year in energy costs. Further, the project has improved the indoor comfort levels of the buildings involved and socio-economically, has created a job-market for the local contractors to drive the energy efficiency agenda into the private sector. The project is valued at over USD 10 Million, the state, over the next years, pay for the contract from the energy cost savings – a significant solution making clients buy into the package offer. The full package of integrated energy efficiency measures, allows large projects to be undertaken in a vast group of buildings in a city or state. This goes much further than fragmented retrofits and simple equipment upgrades. The retrofit works for these 9 state-owned buildings have been initiated in late-2015 and is expected to be fully completed in 2018. The 9 buildings are considered as a pilot case for the state of Melaka and in parallel with it, a further 30+ buildings are expected to be retrofitted by DEEP.
Phase 1 of Melaka’s State-owned Building Energy Efficiency was launched on the 16th of January 2017 by YAB Datuk Seri Utama Ir. Haji Idris bin Haji Haron, the Chief Minister of Melaka and co-officiated by H.E. Mr Nicolai Ruge, the Danish Ambassador to Malaysia. The event was attended by officials and dignitaries from the Malaysian energy and environment community.
CLEAN is a world-leading cleantech cluster with an international focus that is based in Denmark. Its mission is to accelerate the green and sustainable transition while realising growth for the Danish cleantech sector. Through a corporation with CLEAN, DEEP successfully signed two Memorandum of Understanding with commercial building owners in The Philippines in March 2017.
DEEP and Green Growth Asia entered into a corporation through an MoU in 2017. Through the corporation, GGA is responsible to “open doors” to provinces and states in the region, to identify potential projects for DEEP. Through this corporation, the Songkhla province, which is apart of the IMT - Growth Triangle, came on-board.
