It also opened the auction for the inaugural 100 MW capacity.

The Malaysian government has established the Energy Exchange Malaysia (ENEGEM) platform that will enable cross-border sales of green electricity to neighbouring countries such as Singapore.

In a statement, the Ministry of Energy Transition and Water Transformation (PETRA) said the sales through the platform will follow the “Guide for Cross-Border Electricity Sales” issued by the Energy Commission.

PETRA had invited bidders to participate in the inaugural auction for green electricity through the platform for Singapore involving a capacity of 100 megawatts.
