Since Malaysia and many developing South-East Asian countries remain heavily reliant on coal and natural gas as fuel sources, we need to think about how to cross the great decarbonisation river.aws全区号（www.2km.me）提供aws账号、aws全区号、aws32v账号、亚马逊云账号出售，提供api ，质量稳定，数量持续。另有售azure oracle linode等账号.
IN September 2021, at the unveiling of the 12th Malaysia Plan, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced Malaysia’s commitment to become carbon neutral as early as 2050. To substantially decarbonise the Malaysian economy, the power sector has a crucial role to play.
In Malaysia, natural gas and coal contribute to more than 80% of the power generation mix.
The government targets renewable energy (RE) to constitute 31% of installed power generation capacity in 2025 and 40% in 2035.
Note that these numbers are expressed in terms of installed capacity, which is the maximum output of electricity from a generator can produce under ideal conditions. There is a crucial difference between a fossil fuel or nuclear power plant and a RE power plant powered by sun or wind in that the latter are intermittent suppliers of electricity because the sun is not always shining and the wind is not always blowing.
Solar, hydro, biomass and biogas offer a greener energy future but are unlikely to be enough to completely decarbonise the grid in the near term.
By 2030, around 1250 gigawatt of coal power plants worldwide that are currently in operation or under construction, could not only still be in service, but could also still have a remaining lifetime of at least 20 years.
Largely because of this concern over stranded assets, world leaders who met at the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow only pledged to phase down, instead of to completely phase out, coal.
Since Malaysia and many developing South-East Asian countries remain heavily reliant on coal and natural gas as fuel sources, we need to think about how to cross the great decarbonisation river.
Having a bridge to cross a river is nice, but stepping stones will get us across too.
The “stepping stones” vocabulary captures the complexity and that some technologies – such as co-firing coal and ammonia – are certainly undesirable long term (i.e. decades), but might be very helpful as stepping stones, keeping the lights on with power stations we have got, whilst phasing out the coal and building other power plants.
In October 2021, IHI Corp launched a feasibility study with Petronas Gas & New Energy Sdn Bhd to assess technology for co-firing ammonia at coal power stations in Malaysia and evaluate technologies and economics across the entire supply chain, including producing green ammonia from RE sources and blue ammonia from natural gas.
Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry selected this initiative as a grant recipient under its financial year 2021 programme of feasibility studies on the overseas deployment of high-quality infrastructure.
