ASEAN Energy Management Scheme (AEMAS) GreenTech Malaysia
Green Technology Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water was established during the Cabinet reshuffle National Green Technology Policy was launched by the Prime Minister Malaysia Green Technology Corporation April 2009 24 July 2009 1 Jan 2010
National Green Technology Policy Definition of Green Technology The development and application of products, equipment and systems used to conserve the natural environment and resources , which minimizes and reduces the negative impact of human activities .
Satisfy any of the following General Criteria :
minimizes degradation to the environment;
has zero or low green house gas (GHG) emission;
safe for use and promotes healthy and improved environment for all forms of life;
conserves the use of energy and natural resources ; and
promotes the use of renewable resources

Benefit Sustainable Energy Management System (SEMS)
Sustainable energy and cost saving if implemented at your site
Green image or Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to your organization
Participating in ASEAN Energy Award under Energy Management Category
Facilitation to get others local or international energy management certification
Facilitation to comply to related legal requirement
GreenTech Malaysia has been appointed by ASEAN Center for Energy (ACE) as Certification Body for Malaysia
AEMAS has been recognized by Energy Commission (ST) as a program under Continuous Development Program (CDP) which is a mandatory requirement Registered Electrical Energy Manager (REEM) for renewal of the registration
AEMAS has been recognized by Institute of Engineer Malaysia (IEM) to support the Continuous Program Development (CPD)
Energy Manager Training Course (EMTC) under AEMAS is re-claimable under Human Resource Development Fund (HRDF)
Energy usually represents 5% of total production cost: improving EE by 10% has little impact on total cost savings
The “traditional” energy manager is a technical person with little if no decision power when it comes to securing budget All training courses on energy management focus on the technical aspects: no training curriculum on the MANAGEMENT aspects Barrier analysis Cost savings is NOT a driver Lack of management commitment Little managerial skills in-house
1. Status of Energy Management Without a proper Energy Management System, there is no sustainability in EE measures implemented.
“ ISO 50001:2011 specifies requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving an energy management system, whose purpose is to enable an organization to follow a systematic approach in achieving continual improvement of energy performance, including energy efficiency, energy use and consumption.”
+ ISO’s reputation will encourage many industries to adopt ISO 50001 to gain better public image
+ ISO 50001 standard provides detailed specifications on the elements of an Energy Management System
No guidelines on HOW to establish and manage the EnMgt system: rely on external consultants?
“ ISO 50001:2011 does not prescribe specific performance criteria with respect to energy .”:
No requirements on energy efficiency improvements
No requirements related to budget and investment
“ ISO 50001:2011 is applicable to any organization wishing to ensure that it conforms to its stated energy policy and wishing to demonstrate this to others, such conformity being confirmed either by means of self-evaluation and self-declaration of conformity , or by certification of the energy management system by an external organization.
EEI improves by 1% on year-on-year basis over past 3 years
EE measures representing at least 50% of the total energy saving potential of recommended measures (internal audit) are implemented and achieving at least 1% overall energy savings
EE measures representing at least 50% of the total energy saving potential of recommended measures (external audit by AEMAS certified auditor and approved by senior AEMAS experts) and achieving less 1% overall energy savings are implemented (include cases where NO EE measures are implemented)
Fuel-switching project implemented (using NG or RE)
Projects involving self-generation of electricity implemented
One RE project implemented
Investment in 5 new EE technologies
Validity: 2 years
Renewal gives 3 stars
If cannot be renewed: downgrading to 1-star (if criteria met) with only 1 year validity
Same criteria as for 2-star + Energy Manager must be PEM (not CEM), i.e. renewal of 2-star provides 3-star
Rationale: a company who can meet 2-star certification 2 times in a row, that is over 3-4 years, demonstrate their sustainable and pro-active approach to EnMgt. The 3-star aims to convey this message.
Validity of 3-star: 2 years
Renewal confirms sustainability
In case a company cannot renew, it is downgraded to 1-star (if criteria are met), with 1-year validity only.
3.4 Energy Management Gold Standard vs. ISO 50001 Corporate energy policy Energy Management system in place and documented Trained and certified energy manager Demonstration of budget spending Demonstration of EE measures implementation Verified improvement of EEI Budget management Motivation Energy Management System in place, budget allocated Real EE improvement; Energy Management System is sustainable ISO 50001
