Urban living is growing exponentially. By the year 2050, 70% of the worlds’ population will live in the cities.
An exponential population growth in our cities means massive increases in energy consumption.
One of the key challenge that worldwide governments are facing, is to find solutions in energy production and distribution; to meet the demands in consumption whilst become and maintain to be environmentally friendly.
The challenges are to ensure a high-quality lifestyle for the citizens; simultaneously ensuring the implementation of energy distribution and production systems that includes addressing the issues of climate change.Sustainable use of the earth’s natural resources is not only important; it has become a necessity!
There are great opportunities across South-East Asia and internationally for the implementation and integration of Smart Grids to existing power grids. This is becoming a necessity to ensure efficient distribution and generation of power to integrate Renewable Energy sources and implement an Electrical Vehicle infrastructure.
The deployment of Smart Grids are needed as well to accommodate new sources of supply and demand, such as electric vehicles, distributed solar power, micro grids, energy storage and efficient management. This is where Masers Energy steps in ‘to achieve today’s needs and address tomorrow’s requirements’.
We have developed a master plan to implement the Smart Grid technologies and solutions in line with the Government’s objectives in reducing Malaysia’s Carbon Emissions by 40% by the year 2020, with the aim of turning Malaysia into a Carbon Zero Nation!

At Masers Energy, ‘Digital Energy’ is more than a vision of tomorrow.
By developing and deploying the right technologies, products and services, Masers Energy actually makes it happen. Along with rapidly expanding our renewable capacity, we are devoting substantial resources to three key areas:
- Energy efficiency
- Smart grids
These smart solutions for consumers and businesses will empower consumers to use energy efficiently and manage their usage more closely.
Our Smart Grid architecture will power networks for utilities around the world, including over 10 million devices that will be spread across a 640,000 square kilometres National Smart Grid deployment in Malaysia.
Masers Energy will coordinate Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) into a smart grid city; incorporating renewable energy sources, electric vehicle infrastructure, waste recycling and the Green Building Index (GBI).
Over the next decade, the arrival of millions of electric vehicles will make Asia’s transport sector less carbon intensive and the cities cleaner and more quiet.
Moreover, the batteries of these vehicles will constitute a large distributed storage system that will enable utility providers like Masers Energy to manage the intermittent output from renewables more efficiently.
The complex energy flows of an increasingly decentralized energy system will require an upgraded power grid with automated sensors, information availability and a new communications technology.
The new Smart Grid will play a leading role in transforming tomorrow into a low-carbon future.
