Collaboration in energy trading, especially generated from renewable sources among the Asean power grid will be important for sustainability and energy adequacy, said Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB).

Dr Noor Miza Muhamad Razal, project director at the Project Management Office Sustainability Pathway 2050 Strategy and Ventures Division, said grid-interconnection would be good for power systems anywhere beyond energy transfer as it offers a measure of stability to the systems.

However, this depends on the respective countries whether they consider internal consumption of renewable energy (RE) as better when it comes to addressing the sustainability agenda, she said during a virtual briefing on TNB’s Sustainability Pathway today.
