This pilot project showcased large scale energy efficiency implementation and financing for the public sector in emerging markets. Nine buildings was selected for a pilot project to showcase large scale energy efficiency retrofitting of existing buildings.
Detailed energy audits revealed significant energy saving potentials. As part of Phase 1, implementing of recommendations for retrofitting the buildings, which included Putra Specialist Hospital, a state administration building, and Malacca Central Bus Terminal, covering a total floor area of 80,000 m2. The expected energy saving was around 4, 7 million KWh per year. As part of Phase 2, six additional buildings, covering a floor area of 100,000 m2, underwent similar retrofitting.
The services we provided for this assignment included screening of all 9 State Buildings, including preliminary energy audits and analysis, data collection, calculation of performance indicators, and benchmarking, detailed Energy Audits of selected buildings, including energy consumption data, energy flow assessment, operation analysis, identification of energy efficiency measures, economic assessment of energy efficiency measures, and recommendations for energy efficiency improvements for the selected, development of a business model designed to tackle the current barrier of providing financing for energy efficiency improvements, summary Report and Implementation Plan, summarizing the recommendations and presenting an overall action plan for the implementation of energy efficiency in the selected buildings. Activities include a catalogue of energy efficiency measures and summary of findings, impact assessment, feasibility assessment, implementation plan, and finally discussion on financing options available including outsourcing through Energy Performance, undertaking energy renovation of the identified buildings, including preparation of technical specification documents, commissioning of goods and works contracts, end-to-end project management, site supervision during implementation of measures and energy management in renovated.
Implementation of energy management system and training of building O&M staff on energy management and continuous improvement of energy performance of buildings, study tour to Denmark for the State of Melaka. This project connected the delegation with House of Green (a showroom for Danish know- how within green technologies and part of the Confederation of Danish Industries) and IFU - Investment Fund for Developing Countries, collaboration with Asian Development Bank and IMT-GT (Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand Growth Triangle, which is a regional organisation with 43 member states/provinces aiming at sustainable economic growth in the region) on promoting and developing a regional showcase/ business model for energy efficiency in public buildings, and presenting the project at two regional ADB conferences.
