Roundtable – Reducing Operational Carbon in the Built Environment

MPIA President Davis Chong spoke at the roundtable themed Reducing Operational Carbon in the Built Environment jointly organized by GreenRE, CEO Action Network and Climate Governance Malaysia on 16 July 2021.

The session was one of the three roundtables with the intention to generate a report with input from the private sector for government’s consideration prior to the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (also known as COP26), as well as to explore the viability of ‘greening’ the building sector in Malaysia.

Chong presented the global trend in solar energy adoption and pointed out that in terms of energy transition, Australia with 25 million population had more than 2 million rooftops with solar  systems while Malaysia with a population of 32 million had less than 20,000 buildings with rooftop solar systems. He said the potential for buildings that could adopt solar rooftop solutions in Malaysia included the 3.2 million residential houses, 450,000 shop houses, 110,000 factories, 1,000 shopping malls and 5,000 government buildings.
