Malaysia: Smart GridMalaysia Smart Grid Plans the annual growth rate for energy consumption could produce save trillions of dollars for consumers. 10There are three utilities in Malaysia: Tenaga NasionalBerhad (TNB), Sarawak Energy Berhad (SEB), and Sabah TNB’s Smart Grid PlanElectricity Sendirian Berhad (SESB).1 By far, TNB is thelargest with 7.6 million customers, while SEB has 500 By focusing on 5,000 customers (.06% of the population),thousand, and SESB has 414 thousand customers. 2 Clearly, TNB expects to obtain insights into how to implement SmartTNB is the most influential electric utility in Malaysia.3 Grid throughout the entire country. The TNB Smart Grid development was begun in November 2009,11 with plansBecause of its size and influence, TNB has embarked upon to implement a Smart Grid test at three demonstrationa Smart Grid development plan for Malaysia. The driving projects in the north (Bayan Lepas—industrial area), in theforces for Smart Grid development are several. There is a central region (Bukit Bintang—commercial area), and ingrowing demand for electricity that is estimated to the south (Medina—green field).12 A Smart Grid Steeringincrease at 3.5% per year for the next 10 years.4 This is Committee was formed to provide direction.13 Theprojected to double demand over the next 20 years.5 The demonstration project at the three sites will involve 5,000country is facing a depletion of domestic natural gas, customers at those locations.14which is being replaced by coal.6 There areenvironmental issues of pollution and carbon dioxide There are three phases that exist in the Smart Grid plan:emissions. 7 And there is a growing recognition of a needto increase operational efficiency by reducing Phase I (2010 – 2011) to improve operationaltransmission and distribution losses.8 Recent outage efficiency via automation [completed June 2011];incidents (January 2005, April 2008) have increasedpressure to obtain a more reliable system to deliver Phase II (2011 – 2013) to empower customers andpower.9 In addition, increasing energy efficiency is a main improve energy and network efficiency; andgoal for TNB, as studies show that even a slight decrease in Phase III (2011 – 2015) to reduce carbon dioxide via1 Rakob, M.Y.
