by June 2, 2016 General

KUALA LUMPUR, June 2 (Bernama) — Multilateral projects and renewable energy can be the way forward in addressing the energy needs of the ASEAN region.

Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water Secretary-General Datuk Loo Took Gee said currently, four ASEAN countries, namely Laos, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore are discussing multilateral projects to transfer electricity from Laos to Singapore.

“The value of such a project can be seen in terms of optimisation of the use of energy resources in the region. If it is cheaper to buy, why build the power plant?” she told Bernama on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum on ASEAN 2016 here today.
