Malaysia sets 20% renewable energy goal by 2025

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Malaymail:The government is seeking to increase the country’s target of renewable energy generation to 20 per cent in the next six years, said Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change Minister Yeo Bee Yin.She said this will be accomplished via the Malaysia Energy Supply Industry 2.0 (MESI 2.0) plan which will be launched sometime this month. “The idea is for a more competitive and diversified mix of electricity generation, one that is also more transparent for the industry and consumers,” Yeo said during the 5-in-1 Power Energy Series exhibition at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre.She said the plan will enable green energy trading through a grid, and that it is not compulsory for renewable energy companies to sell electricity to the national electric utility company Tenaga Nasional Berhad.The minister explained the bidding is for 500-megawatt generation, where each bidder has a maximum of 100 megawatts. “The first four projects amount to 365 megawatts out of 500 megawatts. The bidding price is lower than the cost of gas generation, standing at 23.22 cents.”Yeo compared the price of solar energy for today to several years back, saying at the time when the second round of LSS was being conducted, the reference price stood at 32 cents. “Today we can reach as low as 17.77 cents, a 45 per cent reduction in just a few years.”In order to meet the target of 20 per cent renewable energy generation, Yeo said approximately RM33 billion of investment is required. “Some of it will come from the government, some from private-public partnership, others will come from private financing.”More: Yeo: Malaysia aiming for 20pc renewable energy use by 2025 Malaysia sets 20% renewable energy goal by 2025last_img read more

Indonesia books $1.27b trade surplus in June as economic activity resumes

first_imgExports of manufactured goods rose by 7.09 percent, driven by increased exports of palm oil and electrical machines, while exports of agriculture goods rose by 34.36 percent yoy.Meanwhile, imports of consumer goods grew by 37.15 percent yoy following a sharp increase of garlic shipments from China and frozen meat from Australia, among other items. Imports of raw materials plummeted by 13.27 percent, while imports of capital goods grew by 2.63 percent, driven by higher demand for laptops from China.China, the United States and Japan remain Indonesia’s largest trading partners.In the first half of the year, the country booked $76.41 billion in exports, a decrease of 5.49 percent, while imports amounted to $70.9 billion from January to June, a 14.28 percent yoy decrease.Indonesia recorded a trade surplus of $5.5 billion over the first half of the year, compared to a deficit of $1.87 billion in the same period last year.Global trade is expected to drop around 18.5 percent yoy in the second quarter of this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to the World Trade Organization. The WTO also forecasted that global trade volumes would contract by between 13 percent at best and 32 percent at worst in 2020, amid the disruption brought about by the pandemic.Bank Central Asia chief economist David Sumual told The Jakarta Post that the result was justified following the reopening of the economy, adding that implementing health protocols would be key to maintaining the positive trade performance.“We still think that uncertainty remains going forward as COVID-19 is still around, but the way we are going now is overall positive for economic growth,” David said in a phone interview.Bank Danamon economist Wisnu Wardana said after the announcement that the current account deficit would narrow to 1.5 percent in the second quarter, a result he called “surprisingly positive” for the virus-battered economy.Indonesia recorded a current account deficit of $3.9 billion, or 1.4 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP), in this year’s first three months, down from 2.8 percent of GDP in the preceding quarter. Indonesia booked a trade surplus of US$1.27 billion in June as both exports and imports rose from the slump recorded in May, signaling increasing economic activity as the country and its trading partners have begun to lift coronavirus-induced restrictions.Exports were up 2.28 percent year-on-year (yoy) in June at $12.03 billion, the first growth recorded in four months, thanks to rising shipments of manufactured and agricultural goods, Statistics Indonesia (BPS) announced on Wednesday.Imports, meanwhile, were 6.36 percent lower than last year at $10.76 billion as domestic demand for raw materials remains weak. But the decrease was much less pronounced than in May, when imports plummeted 42.2 percent yoy. Imports of consumer goods and capital goods rose significantly following the government’s gradual reopening of the economy in June. Topics :center_img “The growth in exports is an encouraging sign for the economy, and we hope that this will become a positive signal of a continuing rise in exports in the coming months,” BPS head Suhariyanto told reporters in a streamed news conference.Suhariyanto added that the significant rise in exports was warranted with the relaxation of pandemic-related restrictions.Trade rose significantly in June compared to May, when the country imposed large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) to curb the spread of COVID-19, halting many business activities, disrupting supply chains and forcing manufacturing facilities to shut down temporarily. In June, exports increased by 15.09 percent month-to-month (mtm) and imports rose by 27.56 percent mtm.Meanwhile, the country’s oil and gas exports decreased in June by 18.52 percent yoy to $580 million despite the rise in oil prices, while exports of mining products fell by 17.05 percent yoy due to falling coal prices.last_img read more

Read More8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its Growth It’s believed Ighalo will wear the number 25 kit for the remainder of the season. That number is particularly popular in his native Nigeria, with Nwankwo Kanu having starred for Arsenal in it. In his previous spell in England with Watford , Ighalo was allocated the number 24 kit. Meanwhile, he’s played as the No.9 for his clubs since moving to the Chinese Super League in 2017. Reports in Nigeria have suggested he’ll wear 25 at Old Trafford. Ighalo was a surprise addition on transfer deadline day as he joined on loan from Shanghai Shenhua until the end of the season. His move came after failed attempts to sign teenage sensation Erling Braut Haaland and Bournemouth ’s Josh King. Loading… Odion Ighalo has reportedly been handed his shirt number by new club Manchester United . The 30-year-old’s arrival is much welcomed, with star man Marcus Rashford out for the foreseeable future. Anthony Martial, who has scored just twice in his last eight games, and 18-year-old Mason Greenwood are the only recognised strikers on the books. United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is pleased with his loan signing, telling reporters at Old Trafford: “He is a striker, has a physical presence and is a goalscorer so he will give us a lot. “You would be thrilled when you have been a Manchester United supporter your whole life and you’ve been working your whole life. “Being the top scorer in the African Cup of Nations tells you a lot about the qualities we are going to get. “He’s a different type of striker. He’s a proven goalscorer, physical presence. It also gives us a chance to rest Mason Greenwood and to rest Anthony Martial at times with so many games coming up.” Ighalo will have to wait until after the winter break to make his first appearance for the Red Devils.

Bruce: Hull are up for the fight

first_img Press Association Bruce admits new signings must be sought and he is interested in Toronto striker Jermain Defoe as well as Arsenal forward Yaya Sanogo. But for their problems, the manager also insists Hull are very much ready to embrace the challenge in front of them. Bruce, whose side’s next fixture is West Ham away on Sunday, said: “It has been a bit of a toil for us but even with the all problems we’ve got we were very comfortable (against West Brom until Albion’s 78th-minute winner). “It’s been the story of the season so far and certainly we need that to turn around for us and a bit of luck in that situation – to have eight or nine out is huge for a club like ours. “But bring on next week, and we’ll keep on fighting. “It’s so close and so tight (in the relegation battle) that it’s scary – there’s eight teams in it and I said all along there would be. “I didn’t envisage it being this tight but it’s all to play for.” Regarding potential incoming personnel, Bruce added: “I, probably like (West Brom boss) Tony Pulis and (Leicester manager) Nigel Pearson and all the people, would like a Jermain Defoe. “The numbers might cause a problem but then again I suppose that would be the same for most of the teams in the bottom half because he’s very expensive. It might be just beyond us. “The one thing you don’t want to do is gamble. We’ve seen all sorts of clubs get into a financial mess by pushing the boat out. “But if there’s someone who can make a difference I’ll be knocking the door down like I always have done. We’ve got to get an individual in who can make a difference. “It’s always difficult talking about someone else’s player. “They (Toronto) paid a lot of money for him and by all accounts they don’t really want to let him go. We’ll have to see what develops.” Meanwhile, Bruce has revealed one unnamed individual he had contacted about the possibility of becoming his assistant at Hull will not be taking up the post – and that the man concerned was not his former Manchester United team-mate Nicky Butt. Boss Steve Bruce has emphasised that Hull are up for the survival fight that lies ahead of them despite the extent of their injury list. The Tigers had a disappointing time of it all round on Saturday, suffering a 1-0 defeat at West Brom that saw them slide in to the Barclays Premier League relegation zone and losing frontmen Nikica Jelavic and Abel Hernandez during the contest to knee and groin problems respectively. Following Crystal Palace’s victory over Tottenham later in the day, Hull are in 18th position in the table and Jelavic and Hernandez have joined a casualty list that was already lengthy. last_img read more
