Increasing Awareness and Building the Capacity of Urban Malaysians on Sustainable Energy Options.
The primary aim of the project is to build the capacity and raise the awareness of a range of urban Malaysians to assess their energy uses and motivate them to reduce their use to sustainable levels so that their green house gas emissions are lower and their climate change ecological footprints are reduced.
It will complement and supplement some of the work of the Malaysia Energy Center as well as various ministries. Although there is some interest in sustainable energy usage among some urban Malaysian households, there are almost no working examples. Even then, it should also be made clear that energy efficiency, even in the household contexts, is almost exclusively thought of in terms of electricity.
Malaysia is currently the 3rd largest per capita GHG emissions from all sectors including urban households. The proposed project wills certainly contribute towards capacity building and awareness raising and the provision of some practical tools for urban Malaysians to reduce their adverse impacts on climate change.
