									               Energy Efficiency and Conservation Guidelines
                          for Malaysian Industries
                 Part 1 – Electrical Energy-use Equipment

Part 1 of the guidelines on electrical energy-use equipment was successfully
developed by Pusat Tenaga Malaysia through the initiative of the Malaysian
Industrial Energy Efficiency Improvement Project, a project co-funded by the
Government of Malaysia, the United Nations Development Programme, the Global
Environmental Facility and the Malaysian private sector. The development of the
guidelines was also a culmination of dedicated inputs from professional bodies viz.
the Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM), Malaysian Chapter Of American Society
Of Heating, Ventilation And Air Conditioning Engineers (MASHRAE) and Association
Of Consulting Engineers Malaysia (ACEM); the industries viz. Federation of
Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM) and also the public sector like the Energy
Commission, SIRIM Berhad, Jabatan Kerjaraya (JKR) and Malaysian Industry
Development Authority (MIDA) with technical guidance from Japan External Trade
Organisation (JETRO)/Energy Conservation Center Japan (ECCJ). FMM has given
its support to this guideline with nomination of three member companies to
participate in the proposed pilot project and assistance to help distribute the
guidelines to its members.

The development and publication of the guidelines is a further testimony of the
country’s commitment to energy conservation and reduction of greenhouse gas
emissions, and such testimonies and benefits are as follows:

1. Practical demonstration of working towards realising the utilisation objective of
   the National Energy Policy i.e. to promote the efficient utilization of energy and to
   discourage wasteful and non-productive patterns of energy consumption.
2. Practical demonstration of working towards realising the environmental objective
   of the National Energy Policy i.e. to minimise the negative impacts of energy
   production, conversion, utilisation and consumption on the environment.
3. Demonstration of Malaysian professionals’ technical competence in the practice
   of energy conservation through their participation in the development and
   implementation of the guidelines.
4. Provision of opportunities for useful technology exchange and upgrading in
   energy conservation between Malaysian professionals and Japanese energy
5. Provision of opportunities for collaboration and participation by both the private
   and public sectors in addressing the energy and emission reduction issues.

The guidelines provide details of practical energy-saving measures and best practice
approach in design, operation, monitoring and maintenance. The application of the
guidelines can bring benefits to industries, for examples:

1. Help generate consciousness amongst employers and employees in industries in
   energy efficiency and conservation and establish energy management practices.
2. Provide best practice guidelines for eco-efficient techniques, methods or
   technologies currently available and in use.
3. Provide guideline in selection of energy-efficient equipment; reduction in
   operating costs; improving productivity and profitability; and enhancing
4. Provide case studies to demonstrate actual best practice examples.
5. Help reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and improve energy sustainability.

Part 1 of the guidelines was launched in a half-day seminar held at Marriott Hotel in
Putrajaya on 31 July 2007. The initial development commenced with a workshop
conducted by JETRO/ECCJ on 6 to 8 June 2006. Subsequently, the Energy-efficient
Management Committee (EEMC) headed by the Energy Commission was formed on
4 August 2006. The formation of Working Groups on transformers, motors, chillers,
cooling towers, fans/blowers, pumps, air compressors and lighting was established
with a kick-off workshop (cum meeting) on 14 August 2006 and the organisation
structure is as shown below. Following the launching of the guidelines, PTM would
welcome any feedback or comment in writing on any aspect of the guidelines.
