Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) has taken steps to explore new growth areas beyond the conventional oil and gas sectors, says president and group CEO Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin.
Wan Zulkiflee said against the backdrop of demand for more sustainable energy sources, Petronas is considering viable investments in renewable energy, namely in solar, wind and biomass projects on a commercial scale.
“To cater to the growing energy demand, the company has embarked on numerous energy investments anchored to its three-pronged strategy to develop an energy mix that effectively balances the energy trilemma of security, affordability and sustainability of energy supply,” he said at the World Economic Forum’s roundtable discussion on Malaysia’s energy landscape today.
