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, email@example.com) or Jacklin Simo (013 848 7730, firstname.lastname@example.org).
