《永續性再生替代能源》講座會 施志豪邀大眾出席瞭解其重要性

Luncheon Talk FB 4

人民公正黨兼巴都林當區州議員施志豪誠邀公眾出席於下周二(16/8/2016)中午12時,在古晉港景酒店(Harbour View Hotel, Kuching)舉行的《永續性再生替代能源,助砂經濟成長與發展》講座會。

《永續性再生替代能源,助砂拉越經濟成長與發展》講座會主要是探討本地的替代能源之潛力,如太陽能和生物資肥料等自然和可持續性能源,在減低成本和環境橫擊之下,如何助長砂拉越經濟成長和發展。


dan-kammen_200_280_80此講座會將由美國加州伯克利大學(Univerisity of California, Berkeley)能源與資源部教授——丹尼爾卡門博士(Dr Daniel Kammen)主講。丹尼爾卡門博士是再生兼永續性能源的權威,同時,他也是美國政府能源、環境與氣候部的咨詢顧問。

“去年6月,丹尼爾卡門博士曾前來拜訪砂首長阿德南,自薦倡議。一個月後,完成《永續性再生替代能源,助砂拉越經濟成長與發展》倡議書,並呈交予砂拉越州政府。” 巴都林當區州議員施志豪表示。

今年4月,馬來西亞與其它國家簽署聯合國《巴黎氣候協議》,一致承諾落實「限制升溫不超過工業革命前水平以上攝氏2度」的目標,同時「爭取控制升溫在攝氏1.5度之內」,以減緩氣候變化所帶來的影響和危機。其中,以大幅削減或杜絕使用煤炭、石油或天然氣等化石能源為目標。

馬來西亞亦作出承諾,以2005年為基准,2030年減少45%溫室氣體排放量。

“砂拉越可成為先鋒,引領國內各州采用永續性再生替代能源,促進發展和經濟成長。”

DSC_1752ed施志豪認為,這是一個絕佳的機會,砂拉越應積極爭取從發展國中取得氣候融資、技術轉型和能力建設援助。同時,亦可保存近乎枯竭的化石能源。

《永續性再生替代能源,助砂拉越經濟成長與發展》講座會由人民公正黨兼巴都林當區州議員施志豪主辦,非政府組織SACCESS、SAVE Rivers和SADIA協辦。

施志豪指出,他已在本星期內發函邀請砂州政府相關部門和單位代表、砂能源局、環境組織和環保衛士等出席講座會。

“講座會公開予公眾,公眾有權了解永續性再生替代能源的重要性,和對砂州經濟成長和發展的潛能和效益。僅此誠邀大家踊躍報名出席,並設有午宴款待大家。”

座位有限,有興趣者可向負責單位報名。電話/信息/Whatsapp:Jeffrey (016-8580918) / Jacklin (013-8487730) ,或電郵至jacklinsimo0@gmail.com。報名截止日期是8月14日,中午12時。

 


A Luncheon Talk entitled “Building Alternative Renewable and Sustainable Energy Capacity for Economic Growth and Development in Sarawak” hosted by Batu Lintang State Assembly member, See Chee How, scheduled for next Tuesday August 16 and to be held in Kuching, is opened to the public.

Announcing the event which will be held at the Kuching Harbour View Hotel at 12 noon next Tuesday, See said a group of experts, scholars and advocates in energy, climate and environment led by Professor Dr Daniel Kammen will be the speakers at the luncheon talk.He encourages interested members of the public to register their attendance with his office in order that luncheon arrangement can be made.

Dr Daniel Kammen, Class of 1935 Distinguished Professor of Energy, University of California, Berkeley, is a world authority on appropriate renewable and sustainable energy and an advisor to the United States government on energy, environment and climate.

He will be speaking about the feasibility and practicability of harnessing Sarawak’s potentials for appropriate renewable and sustainable sources of energy as part of our efforts to build and develop our energy capacity while preserving our environment.

This is especially relevant, as Malaysia is a signatory to the Paris Agreement signed in April following a year that was the hottest on record, with disastrous implications looming, such as rising sea levels, droughts, floods and storms.

The Paris accord sets a long-term goal of keeping the increase in global average temperature to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels, while aiming to limit the increase to 1.5°C. since this would significantly reduce risks and the impacts of climate change. The crux of the fight entails reducing greenhouse gases by slashing or eliminating the use of coal, oil and gas for energy.

As a signatory to the Paris Agreement, Malaysia has pledged to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions intensity of GDP by 45% by 2030 relative to the emissions intensity of GDP in 2005.

This is an excellent opportunity for Sarawak to tap into the available technology transfer, climate finance and capacity building aid from advanced countries to develop and promote the use of energy from alternative renewable resources, while at the same time, preserving our depleting fossil resources. We have the ability to lead the nation in developing and building our energy capacity from sustainable and renewable sources.

Dr Daniel Kammen has visited Sarawak in June last year and he had made a courtesy call on the Chief Minister and his associate Dr Rabekah Shirley had met with officers of the SEB. A proposal paper “To build and Implement Sustainable Energy Capacity for Sarawak” was submitted by Dr Daniel Kammen to the Sarawak state government in July 2015.

See requested interested members of the public to register their participation with his assistants by no later than 12 noon on Sunday 14 August 2016: to Jeffrey Mok (016 8580918, jefferymokhc@gmail.com) or Jacklin Simo (013 848 7730, jacklinsimo0@gmail.com).
