KUALA LUMPUR: Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) which is on track to generate 8.3 gigawatts (GW) of renewable energy (RE) by 2025, today announced that National Energy Transition Road (NETR) projects it is championing will generate another 3,000 megawatts (MW) of RE by 2040.
This will be achieved through large-scale solar park (LSSP), hybrid hydro-floating solar (HHFS), and co-firing hydrogen and ammonia projects.
This includes harnessing 2,500MW through innovative hybrid hydro-floating solar (HHFS) technology, alongside an additional 500MW from five distinct LSSPs, with a 100MW capacity each.
TNB is also partnering Petronas co-firing hydrogen and ammonia projects and with Mitsui & Chugoku for ammonia and biomass initiatives, aiming to diversify its energy sources.
“Small-scale co-firing projects are underway at selected coal plants in Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan (Jimah East Power), and Lumut, Perak (Manjung 1 and Manjung 4). This front end engineering design (FEED) phase serves as a crucial prerequisite for the co-firing
implementation, that we are targeting for specific coal assets,” TNB president and chief executive officer Datuk Ir. Baharin Din said in a statement today.
As of June 2023, TNB has achieved 48 per cent of its total RE target capacity of 8.3 GW by 2025.
“Including NETR Part 1 projects, we anticipate adding another 1,200MW of domestic RE capacity by 2025.”
“We firmly believe that domestic RE will play a pivotal role in our portfolio, aligning with the nation’s objective of reaching 70 per cent installed RE capacity by 2050,” Baharin added.
