Malaysia's Corporate Green Power Programme

The CGPP, an initiative from the Suruhanjaya Tenaga (Malaysia's Energy Commission), enables businesses to sign VPPAs and participate in renewable energy projects in Malaysia. A quota of 800 megawatts (MW) of solar energy generation capacity is allocated to the program, and developers can apply for a maximum capacity of 30 MW with a secured offtaker, AirTrunk said.

AirTrunk will procure renewable energy from the 29.99 MW solar farm that ib vogt is currently developing under the CGPP. Construction is scheduled to begin in mid-2024.

This announcement builds on AirTrunk's renewable energy agreements in Hong Kong and Australia. These include long-term Power Purchase Agreements for solar farm development in Australia and a renewable energy solution in Hong Kong that will match data center electricity consumption with local renewable energy certificates.
