Malaysia’s TNB eyes development of energy solutions in Indonesia

Malaysia’s Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) is considering development of energy solutions in Indonesia.

It has particularly expressed interest in Ibu Kota Negara Authority (IKN) covering various areas of solar, wind, gas, hydro, and battery storage.

According to local reports, TNB has already shared the formal interest, stating that “it is open to exploring any opportunities in the grid interconnection market through collaboration with PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara, (PLN), to create a reliable and secure high-voltage transmission infrastructure within the Global City for All.”

TNB President and Chief Executive Officer Datuk Baharin din was of view that such cooperation could accelerate the development of clean energy in both countries.

With this, both PLN and TNB could complement each other in fighting the energy transition challenges.

Earlier, the two countries had also signed an agreement for possible collaboration on a responsible energy transition. Both TNB and PLN are expected to benefit from the sharing of their expertise and experiences, authorities mentioned.

Upon completion of the project, the countries within the Asean region would be able to exchange renewable energy generation resources, participate in multilateral power trade, and provide energy security for their region, Datuk Baharin was quoted.
