Mr. Choo Han Kait, General Manager in the Power & Grid Division at TOSEM, shares insights into the company’s journey, highlighting how Toshiba’s advanced technologies drive Malaysia’s energy transformation. Toshiba prioritizes increasing machine efficiency to reduce coal consumption and CO2 emissions by offering carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) solutions. Malaysia is planning three CCUS hubs as part of its National Energy Transition Roadmap. Toshiba is working with Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) to achieve Net Zero by 2050, demonstrating its commitment through training and technology sharing, which are critical to environmental progress. During COP 28 in 2023, the focus shifted from discussing climate actions to implementing changes. Toshiba collaborates with customers to adapt its energy solutions, particularly the SCiB™ battery and EtaPRO™, to reduce CO2 emissions and ensure operational efficiency.
